  • Concrete pools will increase the home’s resale value. If you may eventually sell your home, a well-built concrete swimming pool is an investment you may reap a return on your investment from at the time of a sale.
  • They are the longest-lasting of the pool construction materials. They are low maintenance (but because the surfaces are not smooth, you may run into algae issues if you skimp on or miss pool service tasks).
  • Inground concrete swimming pools truly enhance the ambiance of your backyard and complement the style of your home. Adding a hot tub or spa, a deck and an outdoor living space or pool house, as well as water features like a fountain or rock waterfall only, add to the beauty.
  • If you want a pool that will be with you and your family for decades — then concrete is your best choice. Concrete may need to be acid washed and eventually resurfaced, but it will not spring a leak and it is durable as well as beautiful.
  • The design and shape options of a concrete swimming pool are only limited by your imagination, budget and your yard size. Concrete gives you design flexibility to work with your existing landscape, to skirt other landscaping items and add a unique shape appeal to your project to make it uniquely your own.
