There’s nothing like resort living in your own backyard.

A pool transforms ordinary outdoor space into an inviting oasis for family and friends. It creates the perfect ambience for fun, relaxation and romance. With the right design and materials, an inground pool is an investment that will pay off for years to come.

For durability, versatility and good looks, a gunite pool is hard to beat. Here are some of the many advantages:

Gunite Is Long-Lasting

Gunite is simply a mixture of cement, sand and water.

After the excavation, a steel rebar framework is put in place for stability. The gunite is then sprayed into the mold from a high-pressure hose. As it dries, it hardens to form a sturdy, impact-resistant structure. It’s so tough that no wooden framework is needed to support a gunite pool, but it’s flexible enough to easily withstand natural shifting and settling in the soil.

Gunite pools are so sound and long-lasting that they typically come with better warranties than other types of pools.

Gunite Is Versatile

A fiberglass pool is prefabricated to a specific shape. That’s rather limiting for people who have their own idea of a backyard paradise.

Since you choose the pool’s shape, size, depth and location with gunite inground pool, the design possibilities are endless. The free-form pool that you envision can be integrated into your existing landscape. It will blend into the natural surroundings as though it has always been there.

Gunite Finishes Are Distinctive

Continue to personalize your pool by choosing from a diverse assortment of textures and colors. Whether you prefer a pebbly, rustic look or an eye-catching shimmer, we have a finish that will complement your landscape and express your personal style.

Not only are gunite finishes aesthetically pleasing, but they last years longer than old-style pool plaster.
