We're in the planning stages for our new pool build in central NJ, and one question that has come up is what lid to use for the auto cover housing. Aesthetically, obviously a lid that matches the coping is most seamless, but the PB has said that it requires a bracketing system that is prone to wear and tear and breaking given the weight of the stone. The other alternatives seem to be aluminum and composite of some sort. Any views on which are better as a matter of functionality? Does the standard aluminum lid seem cheap and flimsy? The cover will be at the deep end away from the house/patio, so I don't think it will be terrible visually whatever we end up with. Any thoughts appreciated. Thanks.
