Entertainment Magazine: Home Improvement: Swimming Pools

Selecting the best swimming pool materials

There are three different types of materials used for in-ground swimming pools:

  • gunite
  • vinyl
  • and fiberglass

With so many choices in pool styles, and so many new technologies, many homeowners who have always wanted a pool are realizing that issues that may have held them back, are no longer issues at all.

All offer great benefits depending on what you are looking for in a pool. When planning construction on a foundation for the pool, consider the type of look each pool material will produce when the swimming pool is filled with water.

Adding a swimming pool to any backyard will increase property values. It also looks good when viewing your property through satellite maps, such as GoogleMaps and MLS maps.

Your pool dealer will take a close look at your property to determine its size and shape, and to identify possible issues that could affect construction or access for construction equipment.

The dealer will also look at local zoning ordinances to assure compliance, and apply for the necessary permits. Installers are required by law to provide an estimated start and complete date so you will have a good idea of how long the construction will be in progress.
