What is the difference between coping and bullnose?
Bullnose coping is a style of pool coping that refers to a rounded edge finish. Instead of a sharp or square edge, bullnose gives you a slightly curved edge. This can be a great look and a softer feel. The rounded shape has safety benefits, as well as offering you a smoother look and texture for your pool.
