Whether building a new pool or renovating an old one, the coping and paving will play a large part in the overall look and feel of your space. The range of products available on the market today is huge and there are also more suppliers, making the products more price competitive.
We usually like to recommend natural hardwearing products – like bluestone, limestone, travertine and granite – as these don’t mark as easily. Sandstone is also a popular choice, but these pavers can mark so it is recommended that you seal them.
Bluestone is by far the most popular product at the moment (and has been for a while) – it’s hardwearing, affordable, readily available, and can be cut to any size or thickness. As with any product, however, there is good and bad quality so it is important to choose wisely.
Coping these days is rarely in the old style, with a rounded bullnose edge. Instead, it is more likely to be square edged with a small aris to take the sharp edge off. At the moment, drop face coping is also very popular, but is more expensive.
Large format coping and paving looks fantastic on many properties. 1m x 350mm is a common size for coping, whilst 500mm x 500mm or 1m x 500mm is common for paving.
Baden Pools can provide pool coping and paving for all areas of Melbourne, including: Beaumaris, Sandringham, Brighton, Black Rock, Mt Martha, Mt Eliza, Hampton, Portsea, Malvern, Balnarring, Mornington Peninsula and Blairgowrie.
