Marble is one of the most exquisite materials for building or remodeling a swimming pool. Its majestic colors, patterns, and textures provide a look of elegance and luxury to any waterline. Using marble copings will add value to your property, and you can expect them to last for generations as they are made of hard metamorphic rocks formed from limestone after being exposed to extreme pressure and temperature.
Natural marble lets you transform the look of your pool or spa with minimal maintenance in the long run. In most cases, you only have to clean the copings at the start and at the end of pool season. Marble copings are hypoallergenic and easy to clean. They naturally resist mold and mildew growth, as well as stains.
Reputable and experienced natural stone suppliers carry ready-made marble pool copings that are ready to install. The sizes are perfect to easily enhance your pool. Standard bullnose coping is ideal for uniquely shaped pools that have a lot of rounded curves. The shape helps minimize waste and the need to make large cuts on the marble for a more cost-effective installation. You can mix and match tumbled marble pavers and copings together to create a bespoke look that goes perfectly with the pool deck.
Tumbled marble copings come in other sizes for pools that have straighter edges. Bullnosed copings are versatile for the steps of your pool, too. Marble will provide a non-slip and a more comfortable surface for your waterline, so you can comfortably walk or sit on the sides of your pool without worrying about slipping or falling, even when wet. The tumbled texture offers a higher co-efficient of friction between the surface of the coping and your feet. It takes a lot for a marble to become hot, too, so it feels cooler to touch, even on a hot day.
