Stone coping & paving is a lasting option to decorate the space around the pool. There are many paver options and here you will see a few of our recommended choices.
Swimming pool coping is the finishing touch to every swimming pool, it can be done in many ways by concreting, timber decking or using bricks, though the most durable & popular is using stone, the stones strength and versatility to all pool shapes makes it by far the most used pool coping, the most common stone used at the moment is bluestone, though there is a wider variety of colours with sandstone that also looks really good.
Pool coping is the capping surrounding the top of a swimming pool sitting directly on top of the pool tiles, the coping can also be used over the spillway between the pool & spa.
The pool coping is usually 20mm thick, though some customers choose 30mm
Pool coping is available in a wide range of sizes and usually gets cut to size when being installed around a swimming pool.
At LPR we have a unique and long lasting pool coping installation method that has been passed on within the family from one generation to the next.
Over the years we have always been called upon to do renovations and repairs, from what we had seen we have also learnt how laying coping shouldn't be done, this has helped us further improve our methods and product selection as we are always striving for perfection.
We aim to deliver quality workmanship for all our customers to enjoy their pool surround for years to come.
5 Star Maintenance Rating - This means that coping tiles are easy to maintain!
Natural stone can vary in colouring throughout the stone and in thickness.
The stone is natural and therefore has a non-slip effect as the surface of the stone is textured.
Honed stone provides more consistent colouring and thickness.
The stone is smoothed out to eliminate the natural texture, however the stone is still non-slip.
