Everything Swimming Pools has skilled professionals that are employees of our company. We can help you with all of your pool coping repairs. Below we will talk about the problems pool coping encounters and how we can help fix it. Keeping your pool looking good and safe for your family and friends.
There are a wide variety of pool coping materials used to give the swimming pool or spa the look that you want. This product is made of a formed or cast concrete or they are a natural stone pool coping. The formed and cast concrete pool coping consists of brick, safety grip, artificial stone and poured. The poured concrete coping is normally the same material as your pool deck and floats right up and over the edge of the pool. The natural stone pool coping is usually a type of quartz or flag stone/sand stone.
All of these types of pool coping over time will need to be repaired. This is due to many things. The swimming pool can encounter shifting from the ground settling or maybe a slight earthquake. It can have a bad expansion joint that causes the swimming pool and deck to collide during expansion and contraction of the swimming pool during the changing of the seasons. When a pool warms up in the summer months, it will expand and if there is not enough of an expansion joint, it will put pressure on the surfaces. This may be a reason for needing a pool coping repair. You may also have materials that over time are affected by the water getting underneath causing separation from the underlying concrete pool shell. This is often due to having small cracks in the mortar or below the coping where it meets the tile.
None of these are major problems that can not be resolved. Most of the time, pool coping repairs are able to be made. It’s is only when the area has encountered to much damage that may cause the need to have all of the pool coping removed and replaced. Or when the coping repairs are large enough, some customers just choose to replace the old coping to give the pool and deck a fresh look. If this is the case, we do provide complete pool coping replacement. Again this is only when the customer wants new coping or that the pool coping repairs are severe enough to deem it necessary.
Pool coping repairs and the process
If you are needing pool coping repairs and you live in the San Diego area, we can help. The first step is to have our pool remodeling and construction manager out to provide you with a free estimate. This will allow us to find out exactly what is going on and what it is going to take to make all the necessary coping repairs. Once we have inspected the job, we will provide you with either a verbal or a written estimate for the repairs. When starting the job, we will always check to see where and what caused the problem so that we can make the repairs needed. This gives the pool coping the best chance at not needing future repairs. There are often cracks in the concrete shell of the pool that need to be repaired. This is often the problem when shifting occurs. This will cause the rigid concrete materials to crack often causing damage to the pool coping, pool tile and even the pool surfaces. With all pool coping repairs, we always make all repairs necessary to ensure that the job is done properly. If there is severe damage, we will always contact the customer to let them know the situation and if there are any additional costs for the coping repair necessary.
Once we repair the underlying surfaces, we then reset the pool coping to it’s original place. If there are any broken pieces of pool coping, we will purchase replacement pieces. These new pieces of pool coping will match the existing material most of the time. There are times were the older pool coping will have faded or worn and may look slightly different. With natural stone pool coping the only time we see issues is when it is Sand or flag stone. This material often breaks down causing it to have various areas are not the same thickness. The good thing is that it is natural stone and will usually blend fairly well once repaired.
