Natural Limestone for your swimming pool

By Kristina Grigorova

 The area around your swimming pool is one of the most important parts of your poolscape. Not only is it where everyone congregates while poolside, it also plays a key role in defining your pool’s personality and style. For a natural aesthetic, white-mac-marble-tiled-for-pool-all it’s important to maintain balance between softscape (trees, plants, and flowers) and hardscape (stone, bricks, and decking) and to use stone that looks as though it belongs there.

 We, at Phoenix Stoneworks keep traditional producer know-how with its quality standards. The company is preparing its production line for ISO standardization in total quality control and working principles.We are also specialise in the fabrication of swimming pool tiles stones using limestone, travertine, sandstone, gneiss and marble. Unlike standard swimming pool tiles wihch are made using a concrete mould, we cut and shape natural stone slabs into the tiles stones. There are a variety of manmade and natural materials that create superior pool decks, but those made from natural stone are matchless companions to sophisticated pool settings. It is important to keep in mind that in order for natural stone to retain its beauty around a pool, it should be treated with an approved sealer so it can handle weather changes, pool chemicals, and hard use.

 Here are a few of the more popular natural stone types. Deciding which one to use depends on how you will use your pool and your property’s architectural style.

Travertine is one of the more popular materials for building luxury pool decks. This material’s reputation for being hard-wearing yet beautiful has been known since ancient times. Today, the material is in as much demand as ever, especially with pool builders who have come to depend on this material’s porous nature and tendency to remain cool to the touch. Because travertine typically absorbs water instantly, decks made of it are virtually slip-free. Plus, it can handle all types of weather conditions, including freeze/thaw.
Travertine types are Ivory Light, Roman Walnut (light brown and wallnut brown). Rich and luxurious in look and feel, pool designers will generally choose this material for artistic settings.
