Terrell North Carolina Concrete Swimming Pools Versus Fiberglass Swimming Pools

Are Concrete Pools Or Fiberglass Pools BetterTerrell North Carolina homeowners should compare the differences between concrete swimming pools and fiberglass swimming pools before deciding on the right pool for their home. Often times we are asked, “which type of pool is better: concrete or fiberglass” and the answer is it really depends, but we will give you the facts so you can make an educated decision on which type of pool you want to install in your backyard.

Firstly, it is important to realize that concrete pools offer limitless customization to homeowners, allowing them to install any shape, size, or depth pool that they want. This means that if you want a really large pool, really deep pool, or a pool with a gradual slope from one end to the other, you can have it.

Moreover, concrete pools offer numerous features and attachments such as sun shelves, water falls, water fountains, and attached spas. You can create the exact type of pool you want, helping enhance and improve your backyard when you go with concrete.

Fiberglass swimming pools are shipped to your home in their final form and backfilled into place typically using sand. Because of this, you must select your new fiberglass pool, usually out of a catalogue. Moreover, during the backfilling process, If the sand gets wet, it liquifies, creating intense pressure against the walls of your fiberglass, which can cause spider cracks to form which will damage your pool.

Fiberglass pools also are subject to being damaged and chipped from debris from inclement weather and pool equipment and the repairs on fiberglass are hard to complete and color match the new fiberglass with the old.
