Since about 2000 the desire for pools in north eastern Ohio has grown pretty dramatically.

We have developed some amazing outdoor living spaces and realize that these are projects that require close attention to detail. Planning and coordination of all trades is very important. I have learned who to work with and who to stay away from.

Pools come down to a few basic choices, diving pools and play pools. The trend is away from diving pools, which dedicate a lot of space to the diving area, and toward play pools that have a lot of shallow area for fun and games. Volley ball and basketball areas in play pools are very popular. Steps and even seating areas also provide cooling spaces without the need to swim. Slides are also gaining popularity but according to insurance companies are more dangerous than diving boards.

The Right Project Needs The Right Materials

Real Creativity.

The two types of construction methods that work best in north eastern Ohio are shotcrete and vinyl liner pools. In certain neighborhoods shotcrete pools are the norm. Shotcrete allows for a lot of creativity in the creation of underwater benches, steps and shapes. Geysers can erupt from beneath the surface providing hours of entertainment for the young ones. In short Shotcrete costs more, but gives you much more flexibility.

Budget Conscious.

Vinyl liner pools are built to standards as designed by the manufactures. Shapes are often rectangles but organic shapes are available. The industry is making headway by introducing preformed steps and underwater seating areas that allow more creative design of vinyl pools. Improvement in the manufacturing of the vinyl has increased the life of vinyl to 15 years or better. This style of pool is what I call a value pool, as you will get a lot for the money.
