The surge in popularity of fiberglass pools has been well-documented in recent years. In many cases fiberglass pools are being added to a builder’s lineup to provide a more comprehensive product line, as the different types of pools offer complementary strengths and thus allow a builder to serve a wider spectrum of customers.
For instance, gunite is more customizable, but it also requires longer to build and more effort in ongoing maintenance. Fiberglass costs less and goes in quicker, but narrows design choices. These complementary strengths allow pool building companies to match features and price points that fit the individual customer.
