What You Should Know About Swimming Pool Coping Stones

May 26, 2023

What goes between pool coping and swimming pool paving? Between the coping and the rest of the decking should be an expansion (or transition) joint. This is filled with a foam backer rod and a self-leveling sealant.

In addition to serving as a functional part of your swimming pool, swimming pool coping stones offer you the chance to make your pool truly unique and special.

Swimming pool coping is the edging material above the pool tile line that surrounds the top of the pool edge.

Similarly to the frame around a painting, this coping stone also serves as a frame around the pool, giving the pool owner the chance to create something stunning and unique.

Pool coping aids in distinguishing the pool structure from the decking or border, while presenting even more scope to create unique designs for both. There is a large variety of paving options suitable for pool copings and surrounds, especially when looking into complementary ground-level grates. Various natural stones and porcelain tiles are offered in an array of colour combinations and looks, giving your end result a special, exclusive look.

Many pool designers use limestone for decking and pool coping due to its beauty and lasting durability. Limestone is also available in a variety of colors including gray, blue, tan, and brown to name a few, and can be cut to a variety of shapes and sizes for your project.

Limestone and Sandstone are both water-resistant. With some treatments and sealants applied to the surface, Sandstone too remains unaffected by water. They can both be used around pools or wet areas.

There are several reasons why Travertine is a great material for pool copings. The first is that it is cooler to the touch than other stones. The second is that it offers a high level of slip-resistance, which is safe for wet feet of all ages.

Our stunning range of pool surrounds, copings and grilles is constantly expanding and our materials are selected specifically for this purpose. Standard sizes, corners, and Roman end kits are available in natural stone and porcelain – including non-slip finishes. We offer flexible delivery options, so contact us for details. We are one of the best swimming pool coping stones manufacturers in China.
