What to Know About Inground Pools

March 20, 2023

Are you considering contacting pool contractors to install an in-ground pool in your yard? If so, you’re in a lot of company. In-ground pools make up between 51 and 60 percent of pools in the United States, while above-ground pools are around 40 to 49 percent. An in-ground pool is a durable, attractive way to level up your home’s beauty.

In-Ground Pools Raise Your Home’s Value

Often, having a pool will raise your home value. It’s an eye-catching addition to your landscaping, making your house the go-to hangout spot among friends and family. A pool is even more of a great addition when you live in areas with a warm climate or have a large backyard. According to HGTV, the average in-ground pool increases your house’s value by 5 to 8 percent. Just make sure your pool is well-maintained!

In-Ground Pools Come in Many Kinds

Pool contractors can install three basic kinds of pools in your home. They differ in the material they’re made of. All three start from a hole dug in your yard, and once they’re installed, they can be surrounded by a concrete, tile, or composite patio that will complement them with all the pleasures a backyard oasis promises. Grills, chairs, lounges, and patio games can complete your in-ground pool.

Vinyl Lined Pools Are Cost-Effective and Customizable

Much like an above-ground pool, a vinyl-lined in-ground pool consists of a metal tank. Unlike the above-ground type, in-ground pools are set into the ground. Pool contractors can deliver one and begin to fill it within days of ordering. They are customizable, although not to the same degree as concrete pools. Vinyl pools are the least expensive in-ground pool option, although the trade-off is in durability.

Gunite Pools are Long-Lasting and Durable

Gunite pools are known for their long installations but their high-quality outcome. Gunite pools are designed and constructed on-site, and because of this, they are fully customizable to your liking. Being able to customize your pool and knowing it will last at least a few decades will highly increase your home value, should you ever wish to sell. They are also known for being easier to construct than concrete, but more expensive than concrete pools or vinyl pools.
