Gunite is a dry mixed type of concrete that’s sprayed into place when used. Known for its dependable structural strength, gunite is a concrete blend of sand, cement, and water that’s applied through a high-pressure hose. Once it cures (dries), gunite becomes rock hard, forming a thick, solid structure. For decades, it has held a special place in swimming pool construction, where it is always paired with another strong building material—steel—as well as an interior finishing coat of plaster.


Rebar forms a frame throughout the entire strech of your project. Using rebar as the backbone of your pool, gunite is then sprayed at a high velocity onto the steel across the entire pool creating the walls and the floor. This steel frame acts as the base for the pool and allows the gunite to adhere. The gunite is then smoothed out before it dries


Using a compressed air "gun" builders can spray concrete on vertical surfaces or curves. In addition to being. popular choice for in ground pool construction, gunite is also used widely in things like roads, tunnels, canals, wall retainers and foundation for a house.
