Pool Coping Ideas


Pool coping comes in a wide array of styles, colors and materials ranging from natural quarried stone to poured and stamped concrete. Bullnose coping allows concrete decking to be poured abutting the pool's lip, while cantilever coping extends over the lip of the pool wall and is used with stone, cast concrete and brick.

Natural Stone Coping

  • Natural stone coping is available in marble, granite, limestone, travertine, fieldstone, riviera and bluestone. It comes in pre-cut slabs and tiles, but you also can custom cut it to fit the contours of your pool. Slab, paver and curved coping styles can be laid in uniform or random patterning. Hone natural stone coping for a satin-smooth finish or leave it in its rougher textured state. You can either seal it or leave it untreated to weather naturally in the elements.

Concrete and Porcelain Tile Coping

  • Concrete coping can be poured wet into forms or used in pre-cast formats. You can pattern, stamp, distress and color it to mimic the look of more costly natural stone. Concrete is easier to work with and goes down more quickly than natural stone during installation, as its thickness and material quality is more predictably uniform.

    Porcelain tile also is used for pool coping and is available in textures, patterns and colors that mimic natural stone at a lower price point.

Brick Coping

  • Natural clay brick and molded concrete brick that mimics clay provide a classic style of pool coping on contoured and linear pool shapes. Brick coping comes in a wide array of hues, from terracotta red to blue-grey and black, and allows for the added style choice of grout color.
