That’s right, I said for beach homes! Now you may think, “Why would someone want a pool when a beautiful beach is available?” Well, some folks want the privacy, the convenience, and the fresh water of their own pool. This also allows them to avoid the crowds on the beach and in many cases increased the rental value of the property due to the private pool that is on the same elevation of the house itself.
How is all this accomplished? An engineer must design a support system of pilings under the pool. Then a floor or cradle of treated wood is constructed for the fiberglass shell to be lowered into. Installing the plumbing is very easy since all the fixtures are exposed on the exterior of the pool shell. A wood deck around the pool and railings at the edge of the deck finishes everything off and another beautiful, affordable, VERY LOW maintenance American Fiberglass Pool is installed and ready for swimming!
It is not my intent to tell you that this type of installation is the norm. It takes engineering, lots of state and possibly federal permits and of course $$$. We have worked on close to a dozen installations like this over the last 6 years from Florida to Texas. We have a much increased interest level for this type of pool installation over the last 2 years specially. If this type of installation is exactly what you have been waiting for, give American Fiberglass Pools a call today. We have engineers and constructors available to assist you in designing, permitting, and building your beach house pool.
More than 75 years ago, people began building swimming pools of concrete. However, on the mid-1950′s fiberglass was introduced to the industry and a quiet revolution began. That revolution has especially taken hold in Europe and the Carribean where 70% of all residential pools are fiberglass. Fiberglass pools offer numerous advantages over old-fashioned concrete pools and does not have the many durability questions typically associated with vinyl liners. With vinyl-ester and ceramic blended resins, manufacturers have eliminated all surface and structural problems that may occur due to materials used or manufacturing methods. The surface of a fiberglass pool is satin smooth, not rough and abrasive. The fiberglass composite is an inert material, which will not affect water chemistry and prohibits algae penetration. Fiberglass simplifies maintenance on average 80% more than old fashion concrete pools.
Most quality fiberglass pools cost an average of 10 to 12 percent more than concrete pools. However, American Fiberglass Pools by design insures a comparable price by eliminating most of the subcontractors and performing the work in-house, thus saving the buyer from paying for several subcontractor’s overhead and profit.
Choosing a Fiberglass Pool is a solid investment in your property with long lasting durability. American Fiberglass Pools now offers high-definition, gel coat surfaces that create a unique look that no other pool offers with the benefits of a non-porous surface.
