Choosing the Right Pool Coping for Style and Safety

Dive into Style with Safe, Attractive Pool Coping

Nothing beats the Austin summer heat like a dip in the pool. But those installing a new pool sometimes overlook one of the most important features — pool coping. Focusing solely on a pool’s shell and deck gives little attention to the edging. You don’t have to settle for boring poured-in concrete. You have options for safety and aesthetics!


YardDoc remodels, renovates, and repairs using some of the most attractive pool coping materials on the market today. We can take your inground pool from a convenient outdoor recreational element to a highly attractive architectural feature.

What is Pool Coping, Exactly?

Coping is a term borrowed from architecture. It is essentially used to describe any type of finishing element that completes or accentuates a feature. As it relates to swimming pool design, coping is that lip, edge, or cap that covers the bond beam between the deck patio and the shell of the pool. Your installer may have chosen poured-in concrete by default without letting you know of all the options available.


You don’t have to settle for basic concrete pool coping. YardDoc installs some of the best, warranty-backed coping materials. These include the following:

  • Natural stone/Travertine
  • Cultured stone
  • Pavers
  • Flagstone
  • Tile
  • Brick
  • Finished concrete


If you have a particular look or material in mind, we would be happy to help you achieve your vision.

Safer, Less Slippery Poolside Surfaces

Yay, safety! It can be hard to get excited about safety features. Well, that is until you get a little hot-footed around the pool, slip, and end up on your tail. Pool coping channels water away from the pool’s edge. The edging is tilted slightly toward the deck, diverting any splash-over into the drainage tiles.


A well-designed pool coping will also have a nice, rounded edge. This gives swimmers “grip” – something to hold onto while getting in and out of the pool. In fact, the feel of these products is one of the first things people notice. Premium coping has a luxurious texture and feel, instantly distinguishing it from lesser quality material.
