Pool Coping & Recoping
Pool coping is the part of your pool that separates the pool shell from the surrounding patio. On a typical pool, coping runs all along the edges, and is an important part of the overall aesthetic. If you’re planning on installing a pool in your Orange County backyard, or if you need a team of professionals to remodel your existing pool, you should spend some time thinking about what you want your coping to look like. The pool installation experts at Oliveira Pool Plastering, Inc. will gladly help you explore your options and settle on pool coping that best complements your property.
The Importance of Quality Coping
Without quality pool coping, your pool area will look slightly off. Professionally installed coping can provide a number of benefits for your pool area and property.
- Safety: Pool coping delineates the pool and the patio, reducing the likelihood of somebody accidentally wandering into the pool. Good coping should also make the surface near the pool less slippery.
- Style: It’s nice to have some kind of material serving as a buffer between the pool shell and the surrounding patio. Pool coping provides the opportunity to infuse a little more style into your pool design.
- Patio Protection: Over time, the water from your pool may damage your backyard patio. Coping can take the brunt of the water from your pool, sparing your patio from damage.
Pool Coping Options
There are a number of factors you must consider when choosing your pool coping, including the pool finish, your patio material, and your landscaping. Here’s a brief overview of common pool coping materials.
- Natural Stone: If you want to give your pool a thoroughly natural look, natural stone is an excellent choice. Flagstone, limestone, and other kinds of natural stone have a warm texture that’s difficult to duplicate.
- Poured Concrete: For a clean look, you might consider pouring concrete along the edge of your pool. Poured concrete can create the appearance of an unbroken surface between the coping and the pool deck.
- Precast Concrete: Precast concrete is one of the most popular types of pool coping. It’s generally more affordable that other options, and there is a wide variety of options.
