You want to improve your home’s value and curb appeal, and you want to add an inground fiberglass swimming pool to make that happen while providing better enjoyment of your home before you sell. But what kind of fiberglass pool should you choose? There are so many different fiberglass pool designs on the market, including options with entry steps, bench seating, a spillover for visual appeal, a shallow end for wading, and a deep end for diving. What about a freeform pool? Are there some fiberglass pool shapes that are more popular than others?
Selecting the perfect fiberglass pool for your home can be a difficult decision, but when you work with Solid Structures, you’ll get the best new pool in the neighborhood, with an outstanding warranty to give you peace of mind in your purchase. With over a decade of experience helping Virginia Beach and Chesapeake homeowners find the perfect pool for an amazing oasis in your own backyard, we’ll help you find the right pool size and pool models so you’ll have plenty of room and enjoyment for all ages.
A fiberglass pool is manufactured in a single piece to provide a strong seal from the ground. These fiberglass pools are designed in a range of pool sizes and pool shapes to provide a range of price points for homeowners to choose from. You’ll be able to choose from a wide range of options in swimming pool design, including loungers, seating areas, swimming space, bubblers, beach entry, and a swim lane. You’ll also be able to select from a range of beautiful gel coat finishes to provide your pool with a vibrant color that coordinates well with your home’s exterior. But why should you select a fiberglass pool over another pool type?
Fiberglass pools have a range of benefits over other pool types. The sides of the pool are manufactured at the same time as the flat bottom, so it starts out with solid, seamless construction that will provide greater durability over time. An inground fiberglass pool typically has much faster installation than other types, while remaining very low maintenance for the homeowner.
By comparison, vinyl pools have a liner that can tear or break; while concrete pools are very porous and require significant maintenance to keep them in operation. The virtually maintenance-free options provided by fiberglass pools supply you with a great option that has a lower lifetime cost than other alternatives.
There is a wide range of sizes and shapes for fiberglass pools that extend far beyond the traditional rectangle shape options. You’ll find a swimming pool design that includes tanning ledges, splash pads, benches, and hot tubs, making it much easier to make everyone in the family happy. With a smooth, high-quality gel coat finish, you’ll be able to enjoy the beautiful appearance for many years to come.
When you work with Solid Structures as your pool builder, you’ll be able to choose from a wide range of fiberglass pool shapes, including those that resemble a freeform shape to give you a custom pool appearance at a fraction of the cost.
For a modern touch, a rectangle pool shape has become popular with homeowners who prefer a more formal appearance to their backyard while still wanting to enjoy the space. They also work very well for automatic pool covers and safety fencing.
A rectangle shape pool is the most common pool shape simply for its practicality. They are fast to dig and install, allowing you to enjoy your pool quickly. It is also easier to manage a range of swimming abilities from shallow to deep ends.
For a more organic feel, you may want to consider a freeform shape. This allows you to create curving surfaces on your pool deck and plantings to create a more natural appearance to match your lifestyle and yard. Continue below for visuals, sizes, and colors of the fiberglass pools we offer.
Solid Structures works with more than one fiberglass pool manufacturer to ensure that you have a superior selection of options when you decide to create a personal oasis in your own backyard. Here’s a quick look at two of our largest manufacturers and what they have to offer you.
Imagine Pools is a fiberglass pool that also has a range of great features, including tanning ledges, spas, spillover cascades, splash pads, benches, fun pads, and pool spa jets. These features allow you to enjoy every moment you spend in your backyard oasis while improving the functionality and the age range able to use the pool.
Even better, you can enjoy a wide range of sizes and shapes from your Imagine Pools installation, including a range of rectangular pools and freeform pool shapes with a wide array of available and add-on features. Imagine Pools are available in a range of seven beautiful gel coat colors to match your home’s exterior appearance and landscaping.
We offer a wide selection of seven gel coat shades in blue, gray, tan, and black. But which one is the best choice for your home and personal style? If you prefer bold or bright colors, going with a deeper blue or turquoise tone can provide you with a lovely appearance. If your backyard oasis is intended to be a relaxing location, going with a lighter or more natural tone such as a pale blue, gray, or tan can give you a better fit.
Other considerations include your lifestyle, or when you’ll be swimming, as well as the area around the pool. For shaded pools, darker tones will help the pool warm up more easily, extending your swimming season, while unshaded ones may become too hot for comfort if you are planning on using it for exercise. Deep and bold tones look fabulous if you’re planning on late-night cocktails around the pool.
As you can see, there are many options available in pool design for your inground fiberglass pool, so you can find a perfect option for your friends and family for spring, summer, and fall enjoyment. Instead of settling for less, why not get the best? When you work with Solid Structures, you get an outstanding swimming pool that you can enjoy for many years to come.
