So what is a Gunite Pool?

To get started, a Gunite inground pool is comprised of strategically placed, hand installed, steel rebar reinforcement that acts as skeleton of your pool.

Once this reinforcement is in place, sprayed or applied concrete or “gunite” is shot into place by team of highly skilled professionals and then hand sculpted to the design of the pool. Upon completion of the gunite process you will then see your one of a kind pool start to come to life. Shortly thereafter, a tile border will be installed around the entire perimeter of the pool. Then the interior finish will be applied to the pool to give it that truly exquisite look found only in a Gunite pool.
