Why Natural Stone Pool Coping Needs Maintenance
An elegant choice that adds a touch of luxury to your pool, natural or cast stone can also be very problematic in pool coping without the proper maintenance. Whether Austin or Oklahoma stone, Lueders limestone or cast stone, any stone can degrade in appearance due to:
Grime. Porous stone types tend to collect dirt and grime from debris, which can remain after everyday cleaning.
Chlorine or salt. Both chlorinated water and saltwater can leave an ugly residue on the surface of the stone or even chemically etch it.
Freezing and thawing. Low temperatures in the off season cause contraction and expansion of stone, which can result in cracking, separation and flaking.
Direct sunlight. Regular exposure to UV light from the sun can cause discoloration over time.
Fungi. Even near chlorinated water, mold and mildew can develop in porous stone and between pavers, staining the surface.
Chipping. Unattractive chips and holes can develop in many stone types from the impact of heavy objects or simply everyday wear.
All this can eventually add up to a costly replacement. Thankfully, with professional treatment and maintenance, you can repair the damage and prevent future degradation.

Other Pool Coping Services
For deeply stained grout, we use a safe but powerful cleaning solution and gently abrasive brushes to completely scrub out the discoloration, bringing out the grout’s original color.
It’s natural for cracks and gaps to develop in the grout between pavers over time. We use an exterior-grade epoxy to rebuild the grout, preventing water access that can cause separation.
Water, debris, and soil erosion will cause your pavers to separate and become uneven. We can put the stones back together with a perfect fit and a long-lasting bond on an even plane.
Pool coping tiles can easily chip or crack with normal wear. We use a special epoxy for natural or cast stone tiles that can repair the damage and match their natural color.
