One of the most important materials you’ll choose for your project is a pool coping paver. What is that you may ask? Coping pavers surround your swimming pool and act as a protective cap at the top of your pool wall. Selecting the right coping pavers is essential in ensuring the success of your project. In this article, we’ll establish why pavers for pool coping are important and show you an array of different options that could work great for your swimming pool design! Let’s get started!
What are pool coping pavers and why are they so important?
In swimming pool designs, pool coping pavers refer to the pavers used to cover the top of the pool wall, where it meets the ground. They actually cover the bond beam, which, in inground pools, usually has exposed steel. To ensure everyone’s safety, it’s therefore best to have that layer of protection on top.
Coping pavers around your pool also allow you and your children to enter and exit the pool safely, reduce the risk of slipping and keep surrounding water, grass and debris from entering the pool and causing potential damage. Esthetically, it also gives your pool a more polished look and allows you to get creative with some modern and sleek pool coping pavers!
