A more relaxed and natural look for your pool
types of freeform pools
We highly recommend gunite for our pools here in the warmer climate of Texas and Oklahoma for multiple reasons.
To build a gunite swimming pool, a construction team creates an opening large enough for the pool, plumbing, rebar reinforcing rod, and other accessories. In general, rebar is spaced about 10 inches apart, and secured with wire. On top of the rebar, the crew sprays a heavy coating of gunite cement.
We do not recommend vinyl liner pools. For an in depth look at the reasons I recommend reading our post on problems with in-ground vinyl liner pools.
Concrete Freeform Pools
When it comes to a concrete pool of any shape, the cost is really going to come down to the total square footage of the size of the pool.
We still recommend constructing a gunite pool for the sheer durability and longevity versus a concrete pool, not to mention the significant cost savings.
Advantages of gunite designs
This is the biggest advantage of building a gunite pool, there are really no limitations when it comes to size or shape. We custom design this pool to your vision and specifications. We want to make sure that your pool fits your home and yard perfectly.
We find that when talking to folks about planning for a pool, it’s also very helpful to take a look at your entire yard. Some things you might want to consider when planning would be:
- If you have children and pets would it be beneficial to maximize the amount of grassy area in your yard for a play area year round.
- If you want to have outdoor furniture in your yard do you have adequate paved areas or patio platforms for that furniture
- If you’d like to have an outdoor room, such as a Florida room that lets in massive amounts of natural light.
- If you would like to have garden beds in the yard. These often soften what looks like hard edges in the fencing around your yard and make a visually appealing perimeter all while providing increased privacy.
YOUR PARADISE IS JUST A CLICK AWAY
