Gunite is essentially the same thing as concrete, the only difference being in the application process. Gunite is applied through a hose using compressed air. This high velocity application ensures the gunite sticks wherever it is applied. In the case of an in-ground pool it is applied over a re-bar frame. The characteristics of gunite make it the perfect material and process for building swimming pools. It allows a variety of shapes and designs without the use of extensive form work. Along with being incredibly durable, gunite pools can be finished in a multitude of shades and textures to suit the homeowners personal tastes or existing landscape.
The complexity of the application makes it more difficult to achieve a good looking and durable finished result, so be sure your installer is trained and experienced.
