Things to Consider
There are many things to consider when designing your custom gunite pool, including the following:
Interior Finish: You can choose from a variety of finish selections, including classic white plaster, pebble aggregate, colored plaster, polished marble, glass bead, painting and tile. Textured finishes may lightly abrade swimwear and skin.
Decking and Coping: From stained and stamped concrete to natural stone, cool deck (coating, colored or textured), deck pavers or tile, your decking choices are unlimited. While cantilever decking edges that blend from the deck into your pool are most frequently used, another popular alternative is brick coping to accent the outline of your pool.
Upgrades & Accessories: It is generally more cost effective to include the extra features you want at the time of initial installation, however, any feature can be added after installation. You can also accessorize your backyard poolscape with volleyball and basketball setups, grills, safety fencing, slides, loungers, automatic covers and outdoor furniture.
Installation: While you can expect your backyard to be “visually unpleasant” during the installation process, it won’t last long. Gunite installation takes between 8 to 12 weeks before completion, however that time may vary with state and local inspection criteria. Crown Pools will include the precise terms, time frames and responsibilities of each party in your contract.
