Patterson Pools, an award-winning custom pool and spa building company based in Sydney, is sharing the many benefits of opting for an in-ground concrete swimming pool installation on one’s property.
Concrete is one of the most durable and versatile materials available for pool construction with an expected lifespan of over 30 years with periodic maintenance. Not only can it be molded into a variety of shapes such as steps, benches, caves, and even slides, but it is also energy efficient leading to lower overall pool heating costs over the long term.
The spokesperson for Patterson Pools talks about the types of concrete pools available to homeowners by saying, “You can opt for a gunite or shotcrete pool. Both start off with a pool rebar framework that is then filled in with a dry mix of cement and sand in the case of gunite pools and a wet mix in the case of shotcrete pools. Both are highly customizable in terms of size and shape with shotcrete yielding a slightly denser and stronger resultant material.”
The solid, monolithic construction of concrete pools makes them very durable with great longevity. The pools can withstand all sorts of weather conditions as well as general wear and tear for many years making them a great investment. Moreover, the right maintenance, such as replastering, correct chemical balance, regular cleaning, and checkups, can add several years to a pool’s life.
Concrete is also extremely malleable giving pool designers and homeowners the ability to craft a design that meets their aesthetic as well as functional needs. Some of the examples that Patterson Pools highlights include lagoon-style pools for an oasis-themed build, rectangular lap pools for daily exercise, or any other unique design that blends in seamlessly with the rest of the home’s landscape.
Apart from flexibility in construction, concrete pools can also be textured in several different ways to achieve a distinctive look. For classic pools, homeowners can opt for a plaster finish. A pebble finish can look great for those who want a more natural yet sophisticated look. For glamorous designs, property owners can opt for glass or tile. Concrete also makes it easy to include design elements such as cascading waterfalls, grottoes, or custom steps.
Some of the other distinct advantages of building a concrete pool include being able to create one with a deep end, integrating features such as spas or hot tubs, adapting the structure of the pool to fit in neatly into a hillside or steep slope, ability to withstand both low and high temperatures, and, finally, increasing the value of the property when it comes time to sell.
