Whether you are building a new in-ground pool or starting a pool renovation project, the pool finish and framework you select will have a huge impact on your pool’s final design aesthetic. The interior finish of a pool can transcend its design to a whole new level of style and grace. There are multiple types of pool finishes and framework options to choose from, and each type comes in an array of materials, colors and textures. Gunite pools with Pebble Tec finishes are a great combination with many benefits.

Benefits of Gunite Pools with Pebble Tec Finishes

Gunite Pool Finishes

Gunite pools, or concrete pools, are one of the most common types of in-ground pools in the U.S.

The name “gunite pools” is as such because the pool’s framework consists of a sand and concrete mixture called gunite. These pool finishes offer both advantages and disadvantages to homeowners.

Add Value to Your Home

Many experts believe that a substantial concrete pool is still a greater selling point for homes.

However, fiberglass pools sell in greater numbers in the country. This is probably because gunite pools were more common in the 1970s through 1990s. As a result, most recent home sales that included a value for swimming pools had gunite pools.

Design Flexibility

The designing and building process of gunite pools is on site. Therefore, the design possibilities are nearly endless.

Conversely, you bring fiberglass pools to site in a single piece with complete prefabrciation. In addition, gunite pools are very durable. Because of the steel framework, gunite pools retain their shape over a long period of time.

Pebble Tec Pool Finishes

Pebble Tec is a newer trend that has become more popular in the last couple of decades. This pool finish consists of specially formulate cement blended with pebble aggregates.

The pebbles make up most of what you see. Pebble Tec surfaces actually look like the bottom of a creek or a riverbed. There’s also many color options available to give homeowners a variety of looks.


Pebble Tec is a high quality pool surface material due to its longevity. This long-lasting, resilient finish can last up to 20 years.

Pebble Tec pool finishes are quite durable and stain-resistant as pebbles react less with pool chemicals.

Low Maintenance

Pebble Tec pool finishes are stain-resistant which allows for easy maintenance.

These surfaces have a nonslip finish that is easier to clean. Therefore, they require cleaning less often than other types of surfaces.
