Deck and Coping Pool Options
in Bonita Springs, Cape Coral and Fort Myers, FL
All concrete swimming pools need coping, which is a cap for the edge of the pool. Besides simply being necessary, the coping provides an opportunity for a decorative accent, which can greatly enhance the appearance of the pool. When someone inside the pool hangs on to the top edge, that’s the coping they’re grabbing on to the coping.
Coping is mounted on top of the pool beam, covering its concrete edges and providing a transition to the pavers.
It also prevents water from getting behind the pool shell and integrates the finish and tile of the swimming pool.
If coping is installed correctly, any water that is splashed out of the pool should flow away from the pool and down into deck drains. Coping should be tilted slightly away from the pool.
Coping comes in many different lengths and styles. The most common style in southwest Florida is the 4×9 regular bullnose. Most pavers are multiple colors and coping can be matched or contrasted with solid colors. If you decide to upgrade the deck to a natural stone, such as travertine, a 12×24 coping can be used provided all the corners in the pool are 90 degrees. In lieu of coping stones, some pool designs feature concrete or wood decking that extends to or slightly over the edge of the pool. Materials include flagstone, brick or synthetic decking.

We talked to 5 different pool companies before deciding to use Contemporary Pools. We are extremely pleased with our decision based on the final results. They were very diligent in explaining the process and timing as this was a new venture for us. They came through on everything they discussed with us including the finish date. We were vey impressed with the overall construction and finished product. The individuals who did the actual work were extremely knowledgeable about building pools, and those that oversaw the project were extremely responsive and accountable. We have referred Contemporary Pools to 2 other individuals who have signed the up to build their pools. Obviously, we highly recommend Contemporary Pools and would use them again without hesitation!!
