Are you considering the addition of a pool to your backyard space? If so, it’s important to know that there a many decision to be made before you can begin the installation of new pool. One of these decisions is choosing the structural materials that will be used to build your pool. While concrete has previously been a popular choice among homeowners looking to add a pool to their home, we believe that fiberglass is the better option, especially for homeowners in Kansas City and the surrounding areas. Continue reading to learn more about why you should choose a fiberglass pool for your backyard retreat.
In our region of the country, we have a high density of clay in our soil. This means the ground often settles and shifts over time. If you install a concrete pool, you can expect for cracks to occur to your pools as the ground below shifts. A concrete pool would require regular maintenance and repairs to avoid a full replacement of the pool. Fiberglass, on the other hand, won’t crack as the ground below settles and requires very little regular upkeep to maintain the quality of your pool.
With the end of summer just around the corner, we are sure you want to install your pool as quickly as possible so you can spend plenty of time swimming before cool weather arrives. When you choose a concrete pool, you can expect the total install time to take as long as six weeks. In comparison, fiberglass pools take fewer than two weeks to install, allowing you to start swimming right away.
Apart from the fact that fiberglass pools are less likely to be damaged by shifts in the soil, they are also generally low maintenance pools. Maintaining a pool can be a time consuming task, even on a daily basis. Fiberglass pools require less daily and weekly maintenance, allowing you to spend more time enjoying your pool each day.
Because of the materials being used to install a fiberglass pool, fiberglass pools are an affordable option. Additionally, since fiberglass pools can be installed in less than two weeks, the labor costs associated with these pools are significantly lower. When choosing a pool that fits your budget, it is helpful to know that fiberglass pools are an affordable option starting at $36k.
