If you’re considering having a swimming pool built, you’ll have to make a choice on the best material to use for the coping, the pool deck, the waterline, and the interior of the pool.
Most custom pool builders will offer you a choice between concrete, fiberglass and vinyl.
While each of these materials has its own pros and cons and can be used to attain a certain desired outcome, concrete has proven to be the material of choice for the vast majority of homeowners and professionals looking to have a pool built.
Regardless of the pool’s style and design, whether it’s a geometric, luxury, free form, lap pool, plunge pool. Concrete is considered the best choice for a variety of reasons.
THE PROS OF CONCRETE POOLS
The main benefits of having a concrete pool boil down to appearance, durability and design flexibility.
Concrete can easily be molded to form a pool of any size or configuration. This can also include any custom free-form designs that you may have envisioned plus any additional features. Additionally, using concrete for construction can support the inclusion of a water feature or spas, next to the pool or down the road when needed.
