According to USA Swimming and the National Swimming Pool Foundation there are 10 million Swimming Pools in the United States and we can guarantee that none of them is similar to another. We can guarantee that your swimming pool will not be the same as any of these 10 million pool. When you plan your swimming pool there are so many details you need to consider and select: pool shape, materials, pool coping and decking.


Pool tile offers a customized look of your swimming pool in a variety of sizes, colors and patterns. In addition to a rainbow of color choices, we can expand your options even further with a variety of pattern and design.


Plaster is the coating over the concrete pool shell that is made of crushed white marble dust. Standard depth of plaster should be no less than 3/8" thick, this requires two coats of plaster to be trowelled onto surface.Plaster is needed to have the smooth touch on the pool surface. Plaster is at its smoothest when it is new. This is when the plaster has no erosion or calcium build-up on the surface. Once erosion occurs the surface gets very rough and creates pits for algae to grow into the pool walls and floor (causing problems with repeated algae formation in short periods of time.) White marble plaster should maintain its smoothness and whiteness about 5-7 years before you should notice any type of erosion. Water chemistry should be properly maintained at all times to get a longer life out of your plaster. Other coatings will last longer but will cost a little more. Additives can be introduced into plaster to add life and durability as well.

Decking and coping

One of the most important considerations for any pool deck is the type of material to use. The material you ultimately choose often depends on a number of factors including your surrounding landscape, space availability, how much traffic the pool deck will receive, budget, and how much time and effort you want to devote to care and upkeep.Coping is the term used to identify the stone or concrete material used to cap the pool shell wall.Options available are poured in place concrete, pre-cast concrete material, tile, and natural stone.Poured concrete allows the coping to be one unit with the pool deck, incorporating the coping right over the edge of the pool so that there is no break in the finish on the horizontal plane. This method can help to make a small area around the pool look much bigger, and give the deck cleaner lines.

Natural stone or brick coping offers the warmth, texture and sturdiness of stone. Materials ranging from quarried granite, to limestone to natural fieldstone offer beautiful and long lasting coping solutions. In working with natural stone, it is very important to specify consistent coping thickness for this most visible pool element.

Precast concrete coping offers the choice of a wide range of textures, patterns and colors, often at a significantly lower cost than poured concrete or natural stone. From an installation standpoint, it is typically simpler to install, and it is also usually easier to provide uniformity in thickness and color than when working with natural stone.
