Pool Coping

If you plan on installing a swimming pool or purchasing a home with a pool in the backyard, you’ll need to consider pool coping. Everything you need to know about pool coping is covered here, including:
Expert advice on how to cope with a pool
Coping for pools comes in a variety of styles.
Questions to ask industry professionals about pool coping

What Is Pool Coping and How Does It Work?

The word “pool coping” refers to the material used for the capping or edging that surrounds the swimming pool shell wall. Coping protects the pool structure by separating the swimming pool shell from the surrounding surface area. Coping is intended to keep water from getting under the pool shell, and water splashing out should flow away from the pool and into neighbouring drains if properly installed.

Expert Pool Coping Suggestions

It takes time and planning on building a new swimming pool or renovate an existing one. You’ll also need to consider more than simply placing it in the large dirt pit and filling it with water. Consider the pool’s water type, fencing, heating, and lighting. Then there are the pool’s interior and surround treatments to consider.You’ll need to finish the pool both practically and aesthetically to get the most enjoyment out of it. The pool coping is a crucial component of the pool finish.

Summer is the perfect time to sit by the pool with a cool drink and a good book, so fixing your stained, cracked or decaying paving is ideal so you can enjoy the heat with friends and family.

Pools are no longer just a place for a ‘quick dip’; they are now often the centrepiece of outdoor entertaining, with the surrounding paving and landscaping just as important as the pool itself.

With a wide range of natural and man-made products for use as poolside paving, so choosing the right paver is paramount to your decision to achieve your desired appearance.

Your selection process (whether it be natural or engineered stone) should include a review of the five S’s.

Stain resistance Pool Coping

Slip resistance Pool Coping Tiles

Salt tolerance Pool Coping Tiles

Strength and Durability Pool Coping

Stability and Tolerence to Salt Attack

Stain Resistance. Outdoor paving around your swimming pool can be exposed to a wide range of staining agents, such as red wine, oil from outdoor barbecues and food material, so it’s important to choose a pool paving solution that is durable and can be easily maintained. Tannin from fallen leaves and surrounding garden vegetation is also a potential source of staining.

You can reduce the risk of staining by selecting a pool paver and coping tile that has a low absorption capacity. Stains can be more conspicuous on pavers with a uniform appearance (especially mid-tones) compared to material that is more highly figured. Most types of high density limestone, travertine, granite, slate and bluestone are effective at resisting stains.

Judicious use of an oil repellent impregnating sealer around high risk areas such as barbecues can help preserve the natural beauty of your stone.

Slip Resistance. When it comes to pool coping and matching paving, safety is a priority. Our natural stone tiles contain non-slip qualities, and can also be prepared in a wide range of surface textures that are safe around a pool including sawn, grit blasted, flamed (exfoliated), and split face.

It is strongly recommended to avoid using honed and factory trilled travertine in external areas that are susceptible to moisture and getting wet, as this makes the surface quite slippery and potentially unsafe. The trapping of grime on rough textured surfaces can occur, but this can usually be handled with a hose and stiff bristled broom.

Salt Tolerance. As surrounding pool areas are often exposed to salt and chlorine, you’ll want to select an outdoor paver that can withstand these chemicals.
Resistance to salt attack can be determined by Australian standard method AS/NZS 4456.10A. The purpose of this method is to measure the weight loss of the stone after repeated immersion in a salt solution. Natural stone that is used as pool paving should have a maximum weight loss of 1%.

Granite, travertine, high density limestone and bluestone are natural stones renowned for their salt resistance. Some types of slate and sandstone are also suitable for pool paving, as well as the use of pavers with a textured finish which can hide minor surface decay.

It is also important to note that the incorrect use of sealers can lead to accelerated decay of poolside paving as it can trap salt within the stone.

StrengthIt is important that the paving has adequate strength to withstand service loads in high-traffic areas, in both dry and wet conditions. Sedimentary stone types such as sandstone and limestone can lose over 50% of its strength when wet.

Loss of strength can be accommodated in paving. For example, doubling the thickness of the paver increases the breaking load fourfould, whilst use of square paving units also reduces the risk of breakage.

Stability. Frequent wetting and drying of pavers can lead to expansion and contraction of minerals within the stone which can lead to decay. Stone types that have a high clay content or contain expansive minerals such as some volcanic sandstones may cause the stone to be dimensional unstable. Long, thin pavers are at a greater risk of warping than pavers of considerable thickness.

The inclusion of regular expansion joints at least every 4.5 metres and the use of rapid setting adhesives can reduce the risk of warping. Also, please ensure there is an active expansion joint in the pool paving between the pool beam (coping tile) and the rest of the paving. Square paving units are usually more dimensionally stable than long rectangular units. Increasing the paver’s thickness also improves its stability.

Hopefully, these selection criteria will help you in discussions with your stone merchant. When discussing your project with the supplier, it is important that you provide as much information as possible about your project. It is in your interest that the supplier fully understands what you need so they can provide you with a product that is fit for purpose. Remember the five S’s and enjoy your pool with peace of mind.

Pool coping tiles are not only functional, but also a great way to finish the look of your pool

Pool coping tiles are designed to protect the interior shell of your pool and provide a seamless finish that modernises your pool area.
They are also essential to keep your pool protected from external elements that could affect its aesthetic and structural integrity.

Pool coping tiles and pavers are quite versatile in their application, as you can use them as stone capping tiles and step treads, as a stylish addition to wall edges or flights of steps.

Our range of pool coping tiles comes in three styles: bullnose (rounded edge), drop down/drop edge, otherwise known as rebate, and arris edge (square edge).

Here at Stone & Slate Discounts, all of our pool coping are made from a single piece of stone, whereas other retailers may use two pieces of stone glued together to achieve the “drop edge” pool coping look. Our drop edge pool coping tiles are available in 40mm or 75mm drop lengths.

Bullnose pool coping tiles and pavers have a rounded edge, and help create a soft perimeter around your pool or steps. More traditional pool designs tend to opt for the bullnose pool coping style.

Arris pool coping tiles and pavers finish with a simple square edge around pool areas or when used as step treads. They have an understated elegance about them whilst providing a minimalist look.

No matter which material you choose for pool coping, make sure that you seal the surface with a strong solution that contains a neutral pH for the best results. Your pool coping will remain stain-free for years if you take care of its maintenance and sealing. The surface needs to be sealed right after the installation and every few months. Pool coping needs higher maintenance since the pavers will remain exposed to the weather, chlorine, saltwater, and the environmental elements throughout the year.

However, that isn’t necessary as long as you have applied a strong sealant. Another important thing to note is that the old sealant on the surface must be removed before you apply the new sealant. If you find calcium deposits around the edges of the pool coping, then soda and other cleaning detergents can be used for proper cleaning. You don’t need a special cleaning detergent for pool pavers, however, a formula containing neutral pH is highly recommended. If you notice excessive dirt and stubborn spots, then an alkaline solution can be used. If you are using a chemical detergent, then make sure you clean the surface thoroughly. After the application, the area needs to be rinsed with a pressure washer.

Are you planning to install a swimming pool or build a pool deck in your backyard? Well, before you get started with the construction of a pool, you need to think about building a robust and solid pool deck with high-quality pool coping material. So, what exactly is pool coping? And, why do you need to build one? What exactly does it offer?

In architecture, pool coping refers to the coverage around the wall, used to strengthen the pool and make it strong enough to withstand the moisture and traffic seamlessly. Not only does it increase the durability of the swimming pool, but it makes space look more attractive. There is no denying that swimming pool coping gives your space a unique touch and a special feel. Plus, it is an important component of your pool deck, as it keeps your swimming pool stable and secure. When you are sitting or lying at the edge of a swimming pool, you are actually sitting on the pool coping material.

In a nutshell, pool coping is the pavers or the tiles installed around the wall of the pool. The main application of pool coping is to protect the surrounding structure. The coping is to be installed in such a way that the water splashed out of the swimming pool should flow away from the pool deck and go into the drain. Here are a few common reasons why pool coping is recommended by experts.

Pool coping is available in a wide range of materials. You can find the coping tiles in different shades, sizes, types, and textures. Without pool coping, the design of your pool remains incomplete. Most importantly, it is the coping that makes your pool attractive. You could use the bullnose tiles or square-edge pavers to build a solid pool coping on the deck. You can also use crazy pavers to decorate your pool deck. Mostly, homeowners choose the darker shades of stone pavers, especially bluestone, to complement the water. But, you could choose any color or texture so long as the pavers are not slippery.

You must have seen people sitting at the edge of the pool just so they can dip their feet in the water. Similarly, families and friends hang out around the poolside. A vast majority of people don’t really enter the pool, but they spend some quality time on the deck. Even those who enter the pool like to hold the edges of the pool and rest in there. The material the swimmers hold while in the pool is the coping only. So, coping is one of the most crucial parts of the swimming pool decoration. It acts as the threshold used for entering and exiting the pool. It helps you create a comfortable and inviting space around your swimming pool.

As mentioned earlier, the coping is installed to direct the water to the deck drains instead of collecting on the pool deck and ruining your poolscape. Plus, coping enhances the safety of the pool. It is the pool coping that keeps your pool safe and ensures the protection of your family. With pool coping installed around the swimming pool, you can ensure safe entry and exit into the pool. The coping also makes the edges of your pool less slippery and prevents pool accidents. It also keeps your pool clean by preventing the grass, leaves, and other dirt and debris away from the pool. A pool coping has many perks. It enhances the curb appeal of your home, in addition to ensuring maximum protection for your kids and pets. It’s important that you pay special attention to the coping material, as the coping has to be robust and reliable enough to tolerate the weather, traffic and water splashes flawlessly.
The options are countless. From bullnose coping to the rough-cut, you get a plethora of options to choose from. However, when it comes to the best material, nothing can beat the beauty and durability of bluestone pavers. You could also choose other natural stones for the pool deck, but bluestone matches the color of the water, giving your space a clean finish.

Natural stone is one of the visually appealing materials and looks flawless in just about any setting. Your pool deck needs functional and durable pavers that can withstand any level of temperature and weather fluctuations beautifully. That’s exactly what the natural stones deliver. The material is designed to handle any pressure, traffic, and temperature beautifully. With natural stone pavers installed around your swimming pool, you never have to worry about slip and fall accidents. The surface of these pavers has a high no-slip rating, which means the pavers will not get slippery no matter the amount of moisture they are exposed to.

The material you choose for pool coping is an important decision, as it is your pool coping that completes your poolscape. The perfect material for your pool coping depends on your individual preference, your personal taste, and what suits your landscape.

Your pool coping will remain stain-free for years if you take care of its maintenance and sealing. The surface needs to be sealed right after the installation and every few months.

The curb appeal of your house is the first thing people look for when buying a house. That’s the reason why homeowners are investing in landscapes. People have started to decorate their pool decks, patios, and other exterior spaces with the best quality pavers to give their space an authentic and natural feel. A nice and robust pool coping not only renders an authentic feel to your pool deck but it ensures the protection of your pool and keeps it sturdy. It also enhances the lifespan of your swimming pool and helps you cope with uncontrollable and extreme temperatures effortlessly.

The main purpose of installing pool pavers is to direct the water to the drain so that it doesn’t spread on the pool deck or go back into the pool. It’s obvious that you will splash water in the pool. So, to keep the water from going back into the pool or ruining the deck, a strong coping is installed around the edges of the swimming pool. Here we have listed a few popular and sturdy pool coping materials that make an excellent choice for your pool deck.

Natural Stone Pool Coping

The reason why natural stone pavers are extremely expensive is the fact that they add a touch of authenticity to your outdoors. Brick and concrete pavers are man-made. It goes without saying that natural stone pavers come with a set of many perks that set the material apart from other types of pool pavers. For starters, the natural stone pavers render an organic and natural feel to your space. You can’t get that from concrete or brick pavers. Any polished or fabricated paving material can’t give a natural feel to your pool deck.

As these stones are cut from the giant rocks from the mountains, they carry a natural feel that looks flawless regardless of the place you are installing them. In addition, natural stone pavers are available in a multitude of colors and shapes, giving your landscape an authentic feel. Another specialty of natural stone is that it can tolerate just about any temperature and weather seamlessly.

Even if you install them in an area where the temperature fluctuates from hot to cold and vice versa, you can rest easy knowing that stone pavers will handle these variations without cracking. Travertine, bluestone, limestone, and granite are a few common and reliable stone pavers that are extensively used around the swimming pool. These stone pavers come with a high no-slip rating and are designed to last for years. Overall, the material is safe for swimmers and offers a high level of convenience to homeowners, as it doesn’t require high maintenance.

Whether you are building a pool deck from scratch or renovating the existing pool coping to replace the worn and outdated materials with premium and luxurious pavers, the material you choose for the deck plays a pivotal role in keeping your pool deck intact for the years to come. Plus, it gives a sense of luxury to your exteriors. So, it is important that you pay close attention to the pool deck before choosing coping material.
