Cantilevered Coping for Inground Pools: Pros, Cons, & Installation [Video]
If you are considering an inground pool, you've probably noticed there a lot of decisions to make! From the type of pool to options and accessories to the type of patio and coping...all of these details impact the look and feel of your finished pool (and your budget).
One detail that may not initially stand out is the pool coping, or material that borders the perimeter of the pool. In the video below, we discuss a particular type of coping called cantilevered concrete coping.
What is Cantilevered Concrete Coping?
Cantilevered coping is a poured-in-place bull nose concrete edge that extends around the perimeter of the pool. Many pool contractors include cantilevered coping in their base packages, so it is important to become familiar with it along with other pool coping options. In the following video, we look at a finished Greco (G36) fiberglass pool with cantilevered concrete coping.
