When building a new swimming pool or renovating an existing one, one of the first considerations is what pool coping you’ll need. Pool coping tiles are installed around the edge of the pool, setting the tone for the rest of the paved area and the look of the completed landscape. At Better Exteriors, we can provide pool pavers that meet all your needs and preferences.
Our pool coping is available in a huge range of natural stone options, textures and profiles. Consideration should be given to the aesthetics of the coping and its ability to be fit for purpose with regards to slip resistance during wet conditions, heat retention from the sun, and durability from pool chemicals, particularly in the case of a salt chlorinated swimming pool (salt safe).
Some materials tick all the boxes with a consumer, but do not always meet Australian Standards for resistance to salt. These materials can still be treated with a consolidating sealer to assist in this area. This is generally the case for sandstone and some limestone. Our Ardenne limestone is the exception to this rule – it’s popular for its soft grey tones and ability to remain cool underfoot in direct sun due to its low iron content, but it’s also robust enough to be naturally salt resistant.
The main profiles that pool coping tiles come in include:
At Better Exteriors, we can provide a myriad of off-the-shelf stock options or provide tailor made sizing, profiles and finishes that are project specific. These custom orders are done at industry benchmark lead times and pricing.
