Picture summer. What do you see? Barbeques, lemonade, and everyone gathered around a swimming pool. But your own beautiful gunite pool is more than just a fun afternoon it is an investment that pays back its initial cost in both direct and indirect ways. There are a myriad of swimming pool reasons. Below we have listed some of the advantages to owning an inground swimming pool.

Reasons For A Swimming Pool

1. Family Time – It seems today that quality time with the family is harder to come by than in the past. Owning a swimming pool is a great way to get everyone together for one of those few moments when nobody is rushing out of the door.

2. Physical Health – Swimming offers one of the few ways to get a full body workout. It is especially beneficial to those with injuries that prevent other types of exercise and the older members of our community.

3. Mental Well-Being- Just as concrete pools offer a great physical workout, they also offer a calming escape from the bustle of everyday life. Water therapy is an effective way to combat stress and unwind from a hard day.

4. Durability and Customizability – Gunite (concrete) pools last longer and have far more benefits than vinyl fiberglass and above ground pools. Unlike the other options, gunite pools have a much longer life and are fully customizable to fit you needs, size requirements, and wallet. In addition, gunite pools actually add value to a home while other options can actual detract.

5. Home Value – Recent studies, including one done at Florida State University, show that gunite (concrete) pools add value to a home that in the long run can prove to be higher than its initial cost. The FSU study concluded that pool ownership can increase a home’s value by up to 15%. In addition, houses with an inground pool tend to sell faster than those without.

6. Beat the Heat- Remember last summer when your AC stopped working? Well don’t worry about having to go down to a crowded public pool to cool off, just walk outside, sip some lemonade, and wait comfortably for the repair man to show up.

7. Entertainment Purposes- Everyone wants to be the popular one on the block. With one of our gunite pools you can be! Nothing makes someone a better summer party host than an outdoor pool.

8. Backyard Vacation – Can’t get time off work this summer? No worries, just fire up the barbeque get on a raft and mentally head miles away. You can even pop on some of your favorite summer songs.

9. Get the Kids Outside – With technology slowly engulfing every aspect of our lives, kids don’t often experience the outdoors anymore. With a new gunite pool you won’t even have to convince them to play outside, they’ll be there before you are!

10. Aesthetics – A well-made pool can really be the wow factor of your home. Unlike a bulky above-ground pool, a gunite pool is something to be featured in your yard. Check out some of our past projects, we promise you won’t be disappointed!
