Why Are Coping Stones So Important?
Coping stones defend walling against the harshness of the elements being crafted to allow water to flow off of the walling when it is raining. Constant exposure to the sun and other elemental environments such as ice and snow can damage walling and copings serve as a component to prevent damage as much as possible. Coping stones also serve to strengthen walling as well as increase their durability and appearance. This ensures that your walling is protected as well as being able to conform to a specific design which makes coping stones a vital aspect of walling. It is therefore highly recommended that when installing walling or looking to enhance current walling; you consider the wide range of coping stones that are available to you.

All of our copings are available in natural stone which offers a range of properties which make it an ideal material to consider to use for your coping stones.

Slate is also impact resistant which means that it will resist potential damage that could be caused to your walling.
