Custom Gunite Pools in Memphis

If you live in the Mid-South, you know how uncomfortable hot and humid summers can be. Installing an inground pool is one of the best ways to beat the Memphis heat! Pools allow you to cool off and chill out on warm days, all while extending your living space beyond your deck or patio. At Gurley’s, we know how to help you create the perfect gunite pool for your new backyard oasis.



What is Gunite?

Gunite is a concrete blend made of sand, cement, and water that is sprayed through a high-pressure hose onto a steel rebar structure. When applied professionally by a Gurley’s team member, gunite becomes a sturdy, watertight, and durable pool building material. A layer of plaster will follow the gunite, creating added durability and a beautifully finished pool. 

The Benefits of a Gunite Pool

When it comes to pool materials, gunite is the clear winner. Compared to other options, it offers the most benefits to homeowners, such as: 


Not only is gunite the most durable pool construction material, but it can also be applied in a more durable way. Because a Gurley’s professional can control the amount of water that is mixed into the dry material, they can manage the consistency of the gunite to where multiple coats can be applied. With multiple applications and a professional hand, your gunite pool will be built to last!


The way gunite is applied creates the flexibility for you to customize your pool’s shape and design. A Gurley’s professional can even help you incorporate unique shapes and design elements, like:

  • Seating
  • Curves
  • Contours
  • Seamless steps
  • Waterfalls 

With gunite, you can get exactly what you want from your custom pool!

Visual Appeal

With a variety of finishing options, your gunite pool will be a seamless extension of your home’s aesthetic. The material is finished with plaster and marble dust but can be decorated with almost any type of tile, pebbles, and stone. With Gurley’s by your side, your outdoor area will be the best on the block!

Increased Home Value

A well-maintained pool is not only attractive to you but to potential buyers, as well. Pools are a highly sought-after amenity, especially if you can tell that the previous homeowners really invested in the project. When it comes time to sell your home, you can have peace of mind knowing your pool will be a deal-maker!
