We built a gunite pool seven years ago at our last house. Loved it but moved. Now we are thinking about putting a pool in at the new house. We are in Massachusetts so the pool adds little value to our home but a lot to our lives.
The builder we are leaning towards does both vinyl over concrete and gunite. There is a $15k difference between gunite with a pebble finish and vinyl for pool/spa combo.
Gunite was great but our pebble finish (wet edge) was rough despite my brushing. Our two labs don't swim but like to lounge on the steps. I know people often warn if dogs ripping vinyl but the builder has never had it happen in 20 years. I was just hoping to hear some experiences and thoughts. We have also looked at fiberglass but I just am not sure.
Also, I'd love to hear any build stories from Massachusetts. We used South Shore Gunite last time. They build a good pool but we had some issues along the way which left me feeling a bit out of the loop at times. Thanks for any thoughts and help.
