The perfect pool for your house

Shapes, materials and costs: here are all the points you must consider to add value to your property installing a swimming pool


Who among us has not dreamed of drinking a cocktail by the pool, at home, enjoying privacy and relax? 


Having an inground swimming pool is a common dream. It means having an elegant property and upgrade the social prestige. Not to mention that a pool increases the value of the house


What do you need to know before installing a pool in your garden? Read this article to get more information on costs, timing, shapes and much more!

Which material is the best to realize your inground swimming pool?

Building a pool is an important, expensive step. Just think about materials, maintenance and manpower.


The reinforced concrete pool is the most expensive solution and has longer construction times. At the same time, it is the most durable model and it can be customized.


The steel panel pool represents an excellent compromise between a masonry pool (long-term resistance) and a prefabricated model (easy installation). It has a good quality / price ratio. You can choose the shape you prefer, but it can only be covered with the reinforced PVC membrane.


Fiberglass pool consists of one or two blocks ready for installation. You can choose shape and size. This solution keeps the water temperature stable and the works do not involve cadastral changes.


Pool in polystyrene formwork is as durable as those in reinforced concrete, but faster to build and less expensive. Customization possibilities are limited. Unfortunately, this solution is more difficult to repair.

Having a stylish pool paying attention to details

The construction of a swimming pool changes the aesthetics of a property. Moreover, it requires several bureaucratic steps, so rely on a professional.


Do you want an infinity edge swimming pool to admire the wonderful panorama? Or do you prefer a glamorous swimming pool in front of the door?

Dimensions and details of your pool will vary according to the use you want to make of it and the size of your garden.


In addition to position and shape, you also have to decide how to transform the garden: kids area, lounge area with gazebo, botanical garden, solarium, barbecue area.
