Give your pool a touch of class with the most natural and timeless of surfaces. Stone and granite copings will give your pool a character that can't be matched with man-made imitations.
With the rise in popularity of natural products such as Travertine, Granite and Bluestone for paving, so has come the need for good quality pool coping. Not just any product can be laid around a pool, especially salt chlorinated pools. Both Granite and Travertine have been proven over time to give better resistance against salt attack verses man made products. Yes, sealing is still essential for the ultimate protection however you are starting with products that have already stood the test of time.
We not only supply and stock a large range of natural stone products, we do things a bit different. We discuss the requirements of each pool project to ensure the correct fit which can make a big difference to the overall look of the pool. Unlike standard paving, swimming pool projects require extra cutting/shaping/profiling etc. We have full workshop facilities and can custom cut to fit just about any pool. On top of this we HAND SELECT each piece of coping stone for quality, size and thickness. As with any product, stone can have its own complications. We have developed this process to alleviate any major issues.
STONECRAFT IMPORTS Pool Product Warranty
Attention all pool manufacturers, installers, landscapers and direct purchasers:
As you are aware, Stonecraft Imports supply all natural products. We hand select all pool coping pieces and profile the edges ourselves ‘in house’. We also supply extra pieces to allow for selection and rejection if necessary.
Due to the above procedures, we can warrant all pool coping products for a 12 month period upon the following terms:
Correct installation practices are followed
Correct sealing particularly salt pools and clean water flushing after each use
pH is at correct level to reduce calcium build up
With any product used around a swimming pool, especially salt pools, you can expect to see varying levels of deterioration within 5 to 10 years. This includes natural and man-made.
No claims can be made if the following occurs:
Cracking/breakage due to movement and settling of the pool shell
Calcium build up due to improper maintenance of the pool itself as well as surrounding areas
Abuse of product such as damage caused by dropping building materials and lawn edgers/mowers and snippers etc.
Due to the many factors of wear and tear by the end user, movement due to fibreglass pool shells settling and especially the long term affects of salt water; a warranty of 12 months will cover most issues the stone has itself.
