Choosing the Right Type of Pool for Your Property

Q – What is the difference between a vinyl pool and a gunite pool?
A – Like a fiberglass pool, the initial investment is less than that of a gunite pool. Due to the weakness in the durability of the vinyl liner, often a homeowner will end up spending the same amount after several liner replacements. A vinyl pool is also limited in look and shape, and unlike a gunite pool, does not retain its value as well.
Q – What is the difference between a fiberglass pool and a gunite pool?
A – While a fiberglass pool is cheaper than a gunite pool; fiberglass restricts the builder’s ability to provide custom shapes and features.
Q – What the difference between a pebble tec type surface and a plaster surface?
A – Traditional plaster surfaces are composed of Portland cement and crushed marble fines, and smooth by nature. They are available in many colors, through the addition of color pigments. A pebble tec type finish is an exposed aggregate, meaning there are small rocks embedded in the finish. While this surface provides a beautiful look, it tends to be rougher on the feet than a traditional plaster surface. Both of these finishes can easily last up to 20 years, but it depends on proper water chemistry.
