Coping for Swimming PoolsCozy Pools
WHAT IS COPING FOR SWIMMING POOLS?
Coping is the definition used to define the stone, concrete or timber material used to cap the pool wall. There are many options available which allow each pool to have a unique quality. Whether you are after something a little more formal or informal, including pre-cast concrete material, tile, natural stone (pavers, flagstone, stones), timber and more.
POURED CONCRETE COPING
A great alternative when building a concrete pool is to pour the coping at the time of pool construction. This allows the coping to be one unit with the swimming pool deck. Incorporating the edge right over the pool in this fashion delivers a no break in the finish. The incorporation of the coping and pool into one unit enhances a pools appearances and can create a feeling of more space in smaller areas.
NATURAL STONE COPING
Natural stone coping delivers the warmth, texture and robustness of stone. Typical materials range from quarried granite, flagstone, sandstone, and any other type of hardy stone. The effects offer a beautiful and long lasting solution which requires little maintenance. Coping creates a transition which blends smoothly from the pool wall. Additional benefits are the protection that coping offer to a pool wall.
Traditionally the coping surrounding a swimming pool is constructed from stone, however you may be partial to timber. Timber offers great textures, colour and variations. When treated properly timber coping and decking will last for years.
Swimming Pool Decking can be constructed from natural or man made materials. The effects and looks vary greatly as does the maintenance needs. Natural timber decking surrounding a swimming pool requires regular maintenance to maintain its look and to help maintain longevity,including painting, staining, etc. Man made materials are a little more robust and often come in a range of vibrant and fun colours.
