Build Your Dream Pool

Concrete Pools vs. Fiberglass Pools

News March 18, 2016

Looking into building a pool in San Antonio? If so, you�ve likely come across a few different types of pools that you can build, two of which are concrete pools and fiberglass pools.

Today, we want to talk to you about a few of the differences between concrete and fiberglass pools to help you make an informed decision about which type of pool to purchase.

SWIMMING POOL INSTALLATION TIME

A concrete pool will likely take a bit more time to install than a fiberglass pool will. This is because the shells of fiberglass pools are built somewhere off-site, so the installation process itself takes less time. Curious about the installation time of concrete pools?

SWIMMING POOL COST

The cost to build a either a concrete pool or a fiberglass pool is relatively the same.

SWIMMING POOL CUSTOMIZATION

Concrete pools are much more customizable than fiberglass. This is because fiberglass pools are made from a mold. Therefore, the customer must choose from a select number of designs that are offered by the fiberglass pool builder. However, a concrete pool can be 100% unique and built to the customer�s specifications.

SWIMMING POOL SIZE

Concrete pools can be any shape or size you would like them to be because they are dug and built on-site with a construction plan or blueprint. On the other hand, fiberglass pools cannot exceed 16 feet in width because they must be shipped on a truck via the road.

Hopefully this post helped you learn some of the differences between fiberglass and concrete pools. Here at Keith Zars Pools, we only build in-ground concrete (gunite) pools because we feel they are the superior type of pool.
