Natural Stone and Brick Coping Options
When you are considering a custom inground pool for your home, there are several important considerations that you need to make. The interior finish of the pool and the overall style are two of the most important, but you will also need to consider the swimming pool coping used.
What Is Swimming Pool Coping?
Swimming pool coping is an important part of the overall pool design. Simply put, this is the material used to cap the top edge of the pool wall. It can be curved or straight, but it will form an integral part of the overall look and style of your swimming pool.
Natural Stone Coping
There are many options when it comes to coping, including concrete. However, natural stone is one of the most elegant options available. You will find myriad shades of stone, from dark to light. Stone also offers warmth and texture that can be difficult to achieve with cement. Granite, limestone and fieldstone are three of the most popular options available, but there are others, as well. In addition, when it comes to longevity and durability, few things can match natural stone coping.
Pool Brick Coping
Brick coping for your pool can offer a delightful look for your pool. Brick can be curved or straight, and it is also a long lasting choice, as well. Bullnose coping is the most popular option here, but there are other choices that will give you additional options when it comes to the look of your swimming pool, such as a safety edge (an upturned lip for better grip). Another good thing about using brick coping is the fact that it can be used throughout your deck, as well as for coping along the edge of your pool (as can stone).
Considerations for Coping Installation
Obviously, since it plays an important role in completing your pool, as well as in providing the look and feel that you want, you should not take chances with coping installation. The best option is to choose a reputable pool builder St Louis that provides a range of coping solutions and styles to fit your needs and your budget.
