    Hey thanks, no sorry.....it's a poor in place concrete coping.

    The Pavers are Angelus tumbled, I forget the color combination.

    Does anyone have any pictures of stone coping or concrete and approx price for square ft. My Pb I interviewed wanted $45 ft for bluestone which I thought was outrageous

    Re: Show me your coping!

    Our 1980's "modern classic" pool, without coping.
    Supposedly, no coping makes a small pool deck look larger.
    It came with the house when we bought it, and we like it. Clean.
    But I'm not a huge fan of the old 'classic' tile.

    Pool surface will be refinished, and tile will be replaced in a year or two.
    Probably will also expand the patio another 440 sq. feet, to extend all the way across the back of the house.

    The plaster is gray. The travertine stays really cool under foot. Iam glad we chose it.

    Re: Show me your coping!

    Travertine is so beautiful. Just be very careful with salt water and marble/limestone. Salt water can discolor and even dissolve some of those beautiful stones.

    Here is another of travertine. We are using a lighter travertine for the coping and a blend of two darker colors for the decking (all sealed of course). PebbleSheen will be Ocean Blue.

    Re: Show me your coping!

    Well its end of November and our bluestone coping was supposed to be installed on Friday, however due to rain they did not show. Now temperature supposed to drop and wondering if can be laid or do we have to wait for milder climate. I know that cement cant be poured at certain temp.
