What materials can we use for the pool coping?

Pretty much anything that can be cemented down can be used. However, one needs to be cognizant of things like moisture absorption, chemical resistance and comfort. We start all pool designs with the “standard” off-white pre-cast concrete pool coping and then discuss options like Bullnosed Concrete Pavers or types of natural stone like Bluestone and Granite. The pool coping needs to look good, stand up over time and adhere properly.
