Why Should You Have a Pool in the Ground?
In specific regions of the country like Palm Desert, it’s highly recommended to have an inground pool because of how warm the temperature is most of the year. One of the key factors that depends on installing a pool in the ground is your budget. Although inground pools are more expensive than above-ground pools, they come with many more benefits. Gunite pools specifically have more advantages than disadvantages to above-ground pools. Although above-ground pools can have a very nice design when a deck is built around it, having a pool in the ground has a different sort of feeling that will keep a smile on your face for many years to come.
The durability is a very drastic difference when comparing a pool in the ground to an above-ground pool. Gunite inground pools are considered the most durable, lasting on average about 15 years or more before needing to be recoated. On the other hand, above-ground pools need lots of attention and need to be properly set up on the right kind of dirt for them to last about 6 years.
More Freedom in Designing
Creating a pool in the ground allows you to choose whatever design you want. There is a huge range of flexibility to make your pool match the decor of the rest of your property. There are many different types of materials for the surface of the pool besides gunite, and you can also change the border around it freely to stick with your design.
You can also choose the shape of your inground pool and the depth. There are a huge selection of geometric and abstract shapes to choose from, helping you achieve that special look you desire. Many sorts of water features can be added as well, including waterfalls, jets, fountains, or even waterslides. If you want to keep your swimming pool more relaxed, then you can even add a walk-up bar and a spa, too.
Inground Pools are a Great Investment
There have been recent real estate studies showing that your property becomes more attractive to people looking to purchase a home. A pool in the ground can also increase your property value by as much as 20%. Also, building your dream backyard oasis isn’t only something that will keep you satisfied for years to come, but if you’re looking to sell your home after adding a pool in the ground, that can be the difference between your home being purchased quickly and it staying on the market for quite some time.
