Understanding Pool Aesthetics

Understanding Pool Aesthetics

About a year ago, I realized that there were some serious problems with the way that our pool looked. It was old, outdated, and incredibly unsafe for visitors, since the entire cover was having problems. I began thinking of various ways to make things right, and it occurred to me that the best thing we could do would be to replace the cover. It was incredible to see just how much of a difference it made, and within days, the pool looked like a brand new area. I wanted to begin a blog all about understanding and correcting pool aesthetics, so you know how to make things right.

Considering Installing A Pool? Reasons To Select A Concrete One

Deciding to install a pool in your backyard is a big decision. Pools are costly to install and require a lot of work to maintain. But they can transform your backyard into an outdoor oasis that your friends and family can all enjoy and relax near. As you look to install a pool, you will have to decide which type to have installed. The most common include fiberglass, vinyl liner, gunite and concrete pools. Here are a few of the reasons why concrete may be the right option for your pool choice. 

Concrete Pools Can Be Completely Customized

One of the top benefits associated with concrete pools is that a concrete pool can be completely customized. A concrete pool is poured by hand at the job site. This allows you, the homeowner, the ability to decide on the shape, size and depth of the pool. After the pool has been poured, you can select the tile and other design elements for the pool. This gives you full control over the look of the pool, something that you do not have when you select fiberglass, vinyl liner or gunite pools. 

Concrete Pools Last the Longest

The second benefit associated with concrete pools is that concrete pools last the longest out of all of the pool types. In fact, when properly cared for, a concrete pool can last upwards of 25 years before you can expect to have the concrete resurfaced. This is longer than vinyl liners, which typically need to be reinstalled every five to 10 years and fiberglass pools which may need their shell replaced around every 20 years. 

Provides the Highest Return on Investment

The final benefit associated with installing a concrete pool is that concrete pools provides the higher return on investment. It is important to note that a custom pool will not always increase the value of your home by the amount that you pay for the pool. However, if you are looking to install a pool that will give you the most bang for your buck when you do go to resell your home, concrete is the best option On average, concrete pools provide you with the highest return on your pool investment than other types of pools. 

Concrete pools are typically the most expensive type of pool to install and take the longest to install. However, if you are willing to put forth the money and wait, concrete can provide you with many benefits over other types of pools. These pools can be completely customized, last the longest and provide the highest return on investment.
