What is Pool Coping?
Coping is the term used to identify the stone or concrete material used to cap the pool shell wall.
Options available are poured in place concrete, pre-cast concrete material, tile, and natural stone. (Pavers, flagstone, stones, etc.)
Poured concrete allows the coping to be one unit with the pool deck, incorporating the coping right over the edge of the pool so that there is no break in the finish on the horizontal plane. This method can help to make a small area around the pool look much bigger, and give the deck cleaner lines.
Natural stone or brick coping offers the warmth, texture and sturdiness of stone. Materials ranging from quarried granite, to limestone to natural fieldstone offer beautiful and long lasting coping solutions. In working with natural stone, it is very important to specify consistent coping thickness for this most visible pool element.
Precast concrete coping offers the choice of a wide range of textures, patterns and colors, often at a significantly lower cost than poured concrete or natural stone. From an installation standpoint, it is typically simpler to install, and it is also usually easier to provide uniformity in thickness and color than when working with natural stone.
