Rock and pebble pavers, cement, and conventional tiles may be commonly used when paving the pool area, but they can be unsafe and they tend to deteriorate quickly over time. For that reason, you may want to consider travertine pavers or the French marble pattern paving material for areas that are typically exposed to wet and moist conditions. These pavers can come in a tumbled finish that will provide extra grip for feet. This way, you can improve the safety of your pool area and minimize incidents of slips and falls, especially if you have children and elderly around.
Travertine and marble pattern pavers come from natural stone that is naturally porous, so they prevent puddles from accumulating and forming around your pool area. So, you can splash around as much as you want without worrying about flooding and puddles in certain places around the swimming pool. Both travertine and marble pavers are excellent insulators, too, so they are not likely to become hot, especially in the summer. This way, you can sit comfortably around the pool area without the burning sensation. Likewise, they are more comfortable to bare feet, so you can walk barefoot and not worry about a rough surface hurting you.
Aesthetics is another reason for considering travertine and marble pattern pavers for the pool area. These materials come in a wide array of unique colors and styles that can let you make a bold look, while ensuring an elegant and luxurious touch to your pool deck or waterline. Standard bullnosed pool coping is easy to install on uniquely shaped pools that have a lot of rounded curves. They come in other sizes that can be used on rectangular shaped waterlines, too. Some suppliers offer specialty travertine and marble copings for remodeling and retro fitting. These products should help you save time and avoid costly and time-consuming demolitions when you want to fix your pool.
