Concrete Pools vs. Vinyl Liner Pools Which Is A Better Pool?
March 8, 2018
Just which is a better pool, a concrete pool or vinyl liner pool? You’ve asked us for years questions about new pool builds, and we proudly stand by the conclusion that concrete pools will not only present a lower overall cost to your family, you’ll find greater customization options as well!
When looking to build a new pool, you’ve got to approach it from every aspect, not just the initial build cost. How much will maintenance cost? What’s the average lifespan and replacement prices? Just what repair costs am I getting myself into?
While a vinyl liner pool does have a lower entry fee, it also has by far higher recurring costs, repair costs and maintenance fees than any other form of pool. You see vinyl pool liners have an average lifespan of 3-8 years, and depending on how long you wish to spend on your property, you could be looking at hefty fees. Each replacement (including water) will run your family around $4000.
Due to the very nature of a vinyl pool, they carry with them hidden costs, that of a devalued home; potential buyers look at the costs they’ll be burdened with purchasing a vinyl pool, and these costs can very quickly cut down the asking cost.
When thinking about concrete pools vs vinyl liner pools, we always encourage homeowners to go with a concrete pool; while vinyl pools are limited in their design, concrete pools are poured on the spot to any design and shape that you can possibly imagine. Reinforced with rebar, concrete is EXTREMELY durable, and built to last!
Give our pool builders a call for a concrete understanding of the vinyl liner pools vs concrete pool debate, and let us bring your dream pool to life!
