What Benefits Do Concrete Swimming Pools Have Over Fiberglass?

Honeysuckle Nursery & Design Concrete Swimming Pools Fiberglass

Concrete swimming pools have a few distinct advantages over fiberglass, allowing you to create the custom pool of your dreams.

It’s the age-old debate—concrete swimming pool or fiberglass? Both of these options have their own advantages and disadvantages. We create stunning custom concrete swimming pools, and we believe that the advantages of concrete outweigh the potential advantages of fiberglass. After all, your dream pool should be true to how you envision it, and you won’t get that custom experience from a fiberglass pool.


The biggest advantage concrete swimming pools have over fiberglass is probably their customizability. If you have a vision for your dream pool that is unique, you probably won’t be able to make it happen with a fiberglass pool. Fiberglass pools are made with molds. While there are a lot of molds available, they are limited in size and shape due to space constraints and what is considered feasible. So, if you’re dreaming of a sprawling oasis surrounded by plants and comfortable outdoor furniture where you can unwind after a long day, a fiberglass pool might not provide what you’re looking for. If you want a specialty pool, such as a beach-entry pool, a concrete swimming pool is required to make it happen.


Concrete swimming pools are also known for their extreme durability. Concrete is well-known for being able to withstand just about anything nature throws at it without showing signs of deterioration or damage. This also means extensive use of the pool doesn’t run the risk of harming its longevity. As long as it is properly maintained, a concrete pool won’t have a problem standing up against the elements or heavy use.


The innate durability of a concrete swimming pool also lends itself to the pool’s longevity. Concrete swimming pools have a life expectancy of at least 50 years (many last much longer), while fiberglass pools are only expected to last 30 years at most. A properly-constructed concrete swimming pool is a great investment because, if it’s well-maintained, it will last you a lifetime.
