Taking our services a step further, at Victory Surfaces we are now offering gunite swimming pools!
What is a gunite swimming pool?
Gunite pools are created using a rebar framework, which is then covered in a mixture of cement, sand, and water. Unlike a shotcrete pool, which is mixed beforehand, the gunite materials are a dry mix, with water being added on the job site.
Why should I choose gunite over other options?
Because of the way they are formed, gunite swimming pools allow for almost any shape, depth-transition, and design to be created! Curves, sharp turns, beach-entry pools—all can be achieved with this fantastic product. In addition to a diverse design range, gunite is also an incredibly durable choice, boasting flexibility and tensile strength that its competitors cannot match. While the up-front cost may be more than other selections available, gunite has proven that for lifespan costs, it is a clear winner.
We provide an array of services for your pool needs. Check the list below to see how we can help you.

Curious about where we start? Here are the steps for Our Process:
Layout and Excavation
The process begins with a layout based on the design specifications you chose. We then excavate the designated area for the size and shape of your pool.
Forming and Plumbing
We form the shape of the pool and the walls. We install conduit for underwater lights all the plumbing for water filtration, circulation and in floor cleaning if specified in the plans.
4″ to 8″ of gravel is placed over the entire bottom of the pool.
Steel Rebar Grid
Steel rebar reinforcing grid is installed 12′ on center throughout the pool. The bond grid is installed and the floor of the pool is placed.
The walls, steps, bench seats, swim out, bar stools, sun bench or other features are placed and shaped per your pool design specifications. The Gunite is hand trimmed and finished.
Tile and Coping
Careful attention is paid by hand finishing the top edge and face of the pool wall to provide a smooth and level surface to install the tile and coping. Proper preparation is critical at this point. Tile and coping is then installed. These are the first of your personally selected finishes on your pool.
Installing the Deck and Patio
The deck will be formed according to your design plan. Gravel and reinforcement will be carefully placed to ensure your deck is durable and has the finish you selected. Optional pavers are installed according to their specific specifications.
White marcite plaster provides a smooth, durable finish and is our standard finish. Optional finishes include polished marble in a variety of colors that will give your pool an even more custom look. Ask to see our color charts.
The Final Touches
Just add water! Once the construction is completed it is time for landscaping, night lighting, patio furniture and accessories. We will be happy to recommend professional landscape architects to assist you in completing your backyard oasis.
