Custom pool builders serving southeast Pennsylvania

Selecting a contractor to build your custom pool is a major decision. We encourage you to ask any pool builder you are considering for a complete in-home estimate and design proposal. Ask lots of questions—from the amount of time they have been in business to the details of their written warranties. Request photos of their recently completed projects as well.

Vinyl liner pools: Why settle when you can have a real inground pool & spa?

Your home was built to last, so your swimming pool should be, too! So why accept a vinyl liner pool when you have the option of building a lasting, beautiful gunite pool? Along with being more affordable than you might have imagined, gunite pools are far more attractive and far more functional.

The shape and design versatility that comes with these solid concrete-and-steel structures means you can enjoy an aquatic resort that enhances your home the way a permanent home improvement addition should.

Unlike their vinyl counterparts, gunite pools provide extensive options for both style and features. For example, your builder can include a spa much more easily. Better yet, a gunite spa earns an A+ in the looks department; unlike prefabricated acrylic spa shells (to which vinyl-pool companies are limited to installing), gunite spas are visually appealing and create a lovely centerpiece to your overall poolscape.

A gunite pool provides other options for functional and aesthetic features that are next to impossible with a vinyl pool. The most popular include swim-up bars and in-pool dining areas with integrated tables and seating. Another big favorite among Pennsylvania homeowners is a tanning ledge. Also known as a sun deck or Baja step, this integrated structure inside the pool can also include a built-in sleeve to hold a patio umbrella for shade.

In addition, with a gunite pool, your pool contractor can seamlessly include sophisticated features like raised walls (“bond beams”) covered in tile or stone that add dimension to your poolscape. You can even have a stunning negative–edge design (aka “infinity pool”).

If your yard requires a retaining wall, you may have the opportunity to build this structure as one side of your gunite pool. The result is a cohesive, distinctive configuration that cannot be replicated on a vinyl pool installation.
