Welcome to our Wall Caps and Coping Section!


Some of the most overlooked and, consequently, neglected components of concrete features in outdoor areas are wall caps and coping. These unassuming components actually play a big role in keeping outdoor structures safe, attractive, and functional.

Caps and coping primarily act as protection against the damaging effects of constant exposure to the sun, rain, snow, and ice. They also adorn features such as pools and serve as deterrent to injuries caused by blunt pool edges. For retaining walls, on the other hand, wall caps add strength and durability to them, hence effectively extending their serviceable years.

Another benefit that you can get from wall caps and coping is they add appeal to pool areas, steps, and retaining walls. They are available in dozens of designs, shapes, and sizes that allow for easy customization. They can match your property’s existing overall theme for a truly harmonious look.

The different types of caps or coping include sandstone, concrete, bricks, limestone, marble, granite, bluestone, and slate. They come in various color options, such as terracotta, charcoal, dark brown, coffee, green, pink, blue, gray, beige, red, black, purple, white, and even two-tone. They also come in various textures, like rough (for a rustic and natural look), washed (features a porous-like texture), and smooth (resembles a painted surface). Meanwhile, you may choose from different shapes, such as pier caps (flat bottoms and shirt straight sides), classic (chiseled edges and crowned flat top), tier caps (pyramid shaped), and consular (sawn sloped top).

With skillful design and installation of wall caps and coping, it’s possible to combine form and function for a truly stand-out property.
