Are You Considering Backyard Pool Construction?

Gunite inground pools are a step toward a new lifestyle when installing one in your backyard. You can use your outdoor space to cool off on a hot day, work in the pool in peace, or host get-togethers and barbecues with friends and family. In addition to making you more social, a swimming pool can let you enjoy the great outdoors in a new and exciting way. In the construction of swimming pools, gunite is a common choice of material. At Lakeside Custom Pools, gunite inground pools have been popular for many years.

What is a gunite swimming pool?

What exactly is a gunite pool? For those unfamiliar with the term, “well gunite” is a cement-and-sand-based coating. Pool builders spray the gunite mixture into the hole after digging it, installing the plumbing, and constructing the reinforced steel rod framework. It resembles wet concrete in appearance. A trowel helps to smooth out the pool’s surface. Tile, fiberglass, white plaster, or concrete paint are ideal for finishing gunite pools. When it comes to a gunite inground pool, the options are virtually limitless. They’re so popular because they not only look great, but they’re also incredibly long-lasting, and you can build them in any size and shape.

Gunite pool design

With gunite inground pools, your options are only limited by your mind. It is possible to have Lakeside Custom Pools sit down with you and bring your pool dreams to life. Tiles, glass beads, colored plaster, paint, marble, or pebble aggregate can all work well on the pool’s surface. Decking and pool coping, as well as stamped and stained concrete, are all options to consider when designing the area around your pool. You can customize these pools with a variety of features, including slides, pool heaters, step or rock waterfalls, spillover spas, lighting effects, or maybe a volleyball or basketball setup. Count on Lakeside Custom Pools to build a beautiful gunite pool you’ll be proud to show off.

The advantages of gunite inground pools

Remember that pool builders mix gunite concrete with water before applying it. This allows for more freedom in shaping the concrete into the appropriate shapes. Using this method, it is easy to build a more durable structure. As a result of its enhanced spreading force, gunite concrete will form stronger bonds to the surface of the pool. As a result, the construction will be more resistant to cracks and wear, resulting in a pool that will endure longer.


Gunite inground pools not only have a more stable foundation, but they also age gracefully over time. A pool that doesn’t have cracks is both stronger and more attractive. The resale value will be higher in the long run as a result of this. If you ever decide to sell your property or home, this type of pool will only increase its value. This is because it is much more appealing and durable than other inground swimming pools of the same age.

Pool Design and Building Flexibility

Gunite inground pools have the added virtue of being quite adaptable in design. Because of its unique water mixing technology, builders have a great deal of leeway when it comes to shaping and sizing their workpieces.

A benefit of using gunite water mixing instead of shotcrete is that builders can take a break and come back the next day to finish their work. The pre-mixed water in shotcrete necessitates that pool professionals apply it to the surface right away. Gunite has no limitations.

Size Limitations 

Having an inground pool that is as huge as you desire is the first benefit of this option. It’s no secret that building a swimming pool might take months, depending on the design. As a result, gunite is a wonderful option for huge pools that will take a long time to build because of its water mixing process.

Secondly, gunite provides for a broader range of pool shapes. This type of pool is best for those with a specific design that fits the layout of their land or property. Gunite inground pools are easier to build and apply.
