Pool coping is the 1st foot of the decking , above the pool/tile.
Here is a project we just wrapped up in Nine Mile Point. It features slate bullnose coping, a raised spa, a raised wall that has tile facing. The deck material is SunDek and the color is bone white. The plaster features a fade resistant midnight blue coloring. The pool also features a suntan ledge, salt water, a seperate pump for the 4′ sheer decent waterfall. This backyard has a wonderful New Orleans feel that ties in nicely with their existing slate patio with brick fireplace. I thank Oscar and Jeri for choosing Crystal Pools to build their backyard paradise!!!
There are a variety of pool coping :
slate, flagstone, cantilever (whatever decking product you use such as Sun Dek), brick, bullnose brick, bullnose travertine, straight nosed travertine, granite and more.
