With warm weather coming here in the North State, some residents may be contemplating putting in a swimming pool. The cost of an inground swimming pool is not inexpensive; however, the pleasure of having a pool and enjoying the entertainment and social value will remain for years to come. Read on to learn more.
Inground Vs. Above Ground
There are several options when purchasing a pool. One of the available alternatives to a permanent pool is the above ground pool. Some of the advantages to an above ground pool is that there are many different dimensions to accommodate your yard size and shape. Above ground swimming pools are also economical and constructed of lighter weight materials and are easier to construct than in the past. Arthur’s Pools in Redding have many different choices available, including deck kits to accommodate any size yard and pocket book.
Concrete Vs. Vinyl or Fiberglass
The concrete or gunite pool is the more prevalent choice for consumers wanting more selection. The concrete pool offers additional options for size, shape, and configuration. Guiton’s Pool Center is the premier inground pool specialist here in Redding. Although 60 percent of the pool market is made up of inground concrete pools, there are other options. There are fiberglass pools available that are less expensive; however, the disadvantage of this type of pool is the limited availability of shapes and sizes. Fiberglass pools are constructed in only a few ranges and the ground is prepared for that shape and size. One advantage of a fiberglass pool is that typically, your pool can be installed in one day. A vinyl pool is also an additional route, vinyl pools have only been available in the U.S. for about 40 years. Vinyl pools now have the choice of a free form pool to enhance landscaping and preference of style and function. Vinyl pools require a vinyl liner and these liners tend to deteriorate if not maintained. There is a large range of prices and quality of liners; however, liners can last for up to 20 years if maintained properly.
Whatever your style, preference, or pocket book, a pool can give pleasure and fun for the whole family for years to come. All you need is the right maintenance, some patio furniture, pool toys, and a good barbecue. The heat is on in Redding, California, so cool off in your own pool this summer!
