3 Advantages To Custom Pool Surfacing

by Sara Cook

Installing a pool is a major upgrade to your home. Many people choose to put in a pool for recreational reasons, in attempts to beautify the yard, or  to improve the value of the home. If you are considering installing a pool in your yard, you should consider doing a custom pool surface. Here are some of the advantages of a custom pool surface.

1. Any Size and Shape

Many homeowners choose to put fiberglass pools in their yard because they are affordable and easy to install. However, there are some disadvantages to these types of pools. You don't have a lot of flexibility with the size and shape. If you are choosing fiberglass they will be made in a factory, so you can only choose a factory setting. In addition, a vinyl pool can only have a certain shape. This means if you want to make your pool blend in with the yard by making it a certain shape or size, you should consider getting a custom pool.

With the help of a pool contractor like Pebbleworks Pool Surfacing you can choose whatever you would like. The sky is the limit with the different options that are available to you.

2. Choose Any Color

Once again, if you choose fiberglass you can only get white. These pools look like giant bathtubs. The vinyl pools have a couple different options of colors that you can choose from, but they are still very limited. Usually you can only get variations of blue. If you are putting the pool in a yard where you want it to look like part of the landscape, you may not want blue or white. With a custom pool you can get a natural stone look, like cream, black, gray or just about anything else you would like. This has allowed people to make their pool look like a river, a hidden lake, or a reservoir.

3. Durability

Custom pools are very durable. You can choose the materials that look nice, but they will also hold up even with extended use. This is a major selling point for many people, seeing that a custom pool can cost a little more. Luckily, you know that even though it might be a little more expensive up front, you can be assured that you are getting your money's worth.

Additionally, most custom pools are easy to maintain. With the right chemicals you can keep your pool clean with very little maintenance. For these reasons and many more, people are choosing custom pool surfaces.
