Most pools that don’t have pool coping pavers won’t win any design awards anytime soon. Having an exposed upper surface is not a great idea, both because of safety concerns as well as draining. Incorporating travertine pool coping into the design of your pool is an excellent idea, and more importantly – it’s something you’ll never regret doing.
Not many people think about this, but swimming pool coping significantly improves the overall safety levels. The reason for this is because we use materials that reduce the risk of slipping and also offer swimmers a safe and sturdy way to either enter or exit the pool. While it may seem trivial and sometimes even unnecessary, pool coping is one of the essential elements of every well-designed pool partly because of improved safety and mostly because it significantly boosts the aesthetic appeal of your yard.
Materials like travertine or other natural stones are well-known for their ability to withstand rough conditions and last for decades. On top of that, these materials don’t require too much maintenance; an occasional power wash will suffice. Even when your drainage gets saturated with debris, all you have to do is remove the shroud and clean the debris. It’s safe to say that if you decide to use natural stone as a material for your pool coping, you won’t have to worry about damage, maintenance, or upgrades for the next couple of years if not decades.
