What is Pool Coping?

The coping around the pool is the rim of concrete around the pool that you might find yourself sitting on, after a long hot summer day, as you dip your feet and legs into your crystal clear pool. When building a new pool this pool coping can be a eye-drawing decorative design element or as simple as formed concrete sections. Adding the right pool coping can complement the architecture of the rest of your home and feel more complete. There are many options when it comes to choosing the material to use for your pool coping. Decorative flagstone or tile can be used in innumerable ways for the special look you are going for, or for functionality and economy choose precast concrete sections. When we visit your home for the consultation, we can help give some direction to the type of material that will complement your home the best.

Here are some common requests for pool coping:
  • Natural stone
  • Bricks
  • Concrete Pavers
  • Flagstone
  • Poured Concrete
Here are a few things to consider when choosing the right material for your pool coping:
  • Affordability: Is the material within your budget? How much maintenance will it need? Can it be readily, and affordably, replaced or repaired if needed?

  • Durability: Is the material going to last a long time? Is it weather-hardy and able to stand up to chemical-rich pool water? Is it able to withstand the weather extremes in your area? If you have a salt water pool, is your coping choice salt resistant?

  • Safety: Is the material slip resistant? Is it sturdy? Is the design safe and useful for everyone who will be swimming in your pool? Does the material absorb a lot of heat in the sun?

  • Style: Does the material blend well with your deck, landscaping, and other design elements?
