Selecting the proper pool materials is a very important consideration when you’re designing your backyard pool. Neave Pools offers you a choice between gunite/shotcrete pool construction and the more traditional vinyl liner. There are certainly advantages to both materials, and a Neave Pools professional can assist you in making the right selection for you and your budget.

Shotcrete or Gunite Pools

Gunite pools are made of concrete and are completely customizable in shape and size. They tend to have longer construction times compared to vinyl pools, but are also considered a more permanent structure and offer more options in terms of accessories. You can outfit a gunite pool with a sun deck, water features, overflow spas and whatever other additional features you can dream of. Neave Pools can provide your family with the gunite pool that is personally customized to your exact desires!

Vinyl Pools

Vinyl liner pools are the ones you most commonly see in backyards. They are constructed using a steel frame that is molded to fit the design you prefer. The steel frame acts as the foundation to the concrete floor and vinyl liner that covers it. Vinyl pools are no longer restricted the way they were in the past and are much more customizable with advances in technology. A Neave Pool professional will be able to help you determine if a vinyl pool will satisfy your vision.

One of the many benefits of a vinyl pool is the lower up-front cost compared to gunite pools. However, there are residual maintenance and repair costs down the road. Vinyl liner pools are preferred for their fast installation, their ever-expanding selection of liner options and their soft under-foot feel.
