Each type of paver enjoys certain advantages over other types, depending on the application and various other factors.
Here are the major factors to consider for each type of service:
Almost every pool has “coping” – the ledge around an in-ground pool where the edge of the deck meets the sides of the pool. Coping is usually done in pavers or in concrete, and of course, pavers are far more attractive than a featureless strip of grey concrete. From the coping down the sides of the pool to the water line, good pools usually have eye-pleasing porcelain, ceramic or glass tiles installed.
