Pool Coping Options

Coping of pool is primarily done in order to fringe but it also serves as decorative too. Water is prevented from seeping under the deck and smoothes the rough and sharp borders that can result in bruises and cuts. There are multiple options available to be used as coping materials. They depend on the budget of the costumer and also their quality.

    • Concrete:
      It is known as an affordable and durable option for pools. They key is to pour it for limitation of stress. It can also guarantee uniform surface and power. Preservation is required in the case of cracks which might be caused due to severe temperatures.
    • Bricks:
      Bricks are an appealing option but they are not as popular as concrete. If you are looking for uniqueness, this is the track for you to follow. Drawbacks of bricks are their rough surface and ability to retain absorbed heat.
    • Stones:
      They are rough, provide natural look and remain cool. People usually avoid them because of how much they cost. If you can afford them, they are the best look for your pool.
    • Safety grips:
      They are designed specifically to eliminate the chances of slips and enhance the grips. They are ideal both for non-swimmers and swimmers alike. They can be found at the public pools.
      It has been seen that the owners usually pick material depending on how much their pool is used, the weather factor and the maintenance cost and time.
    • Color:
      When you are choosing the color, you must keep the surroundings of the pool in mind. There are multiple options depending on how you decide to complement the background with your color choice.
    • Space:
      If you want your pool to appear larger, you may use light colors. Like Off-white color or a pale blue shade will have the vision of larger size.
