Concrete Pools Vs Fiberglass


Carolina Pool Consultants are the best concrete gunite pool builders in Lake Norman- there’s a reason the Carolina’s come to us to swim. We encourage all Lake Norman homeowners to build a concrete gunite pool rather than a fiberglass pool both for the customization options offered, and savings down the line.

Concrete gunite pools are 100% customizable, reinforced with rebar and EXTREMELY durable; in comparison, premolded fiberglass pools are limited in design and lifespan. Molded in set forms that severely limit both design and size, fiberglass pools are shipped to homes. During shipping fiberglass pools can develop warps in transit that may not be observable until the pool is in the ground. Fiberglass pools require sand backfill to set them into the ground which can erode during a heavy storm, leading to hairline cracks and fractures within the fiberglass shell.

Homeowners deciding to build a concrete gunite pool rather than a fiberglass pool can take advantage of custom step options, beautiful water features and gorgeous hot tub additions. Our Carolina Pool Consultant family works closely with homeowners to ensure the end product we deliver is nothing short of perfect.
