An inground swimming pool is a good home addition people can have to increase real property value and have an amenity every family member and guests can enjoy. There are three types of inground pools: concrete, vinyl, and fiberglass.
Each has their own advantages and drawbacks in terms of durability, customization ability, and length of time to build.
Here’s a quick profile for each pool type to help you choose one that suits you:
These are custom-built and can virtually take any shape and size. It takes quite a long time to install a concrete pool (between three and 12 weeks depending on size and shape), but it makes up in its sturdiness and is known as the most durable type of inground swimming pools.
This one is pre-engineered and is the least expensive among all inground pools. They come in dozens of pre-designed shapes and patterns, but pool toys, pets and sharp objects can puncture its liner. It only takes three weeks to construct a vinyl pool.
These are factory-molded and pre-finished and has a super smooth gel coat finish that makes it durable and stain proof. Transportation usually takes time because of state regulations and a crane is needed to put the pool inside the excavated hole. However, it’s faster to install, clocking in at only three days till completion.
Now that you know the types of inground swimming pools, you can already choose the one that best suits your needs.
