I had my pool rebuilt a few months ago and "kool decking" applied to the pool surround. Now, already, it is starting to flake off in a couple of places. The adhesion to the substrata does not seem to be good. The applicator was a well regarded local abañil contractor with a good reputation. I had looked over some of his previous jobs and was impressed. Bottom line? I would only have the work done by someone who could show me "kool decking" done in well-aged previous jobs that still look good.

So if you use this person, I would suggest that you take full control of the prep process and not leave it up to him.
A correctly done kool deck job should last for years. Particularly here where we don't have the extremes in temperature.

A canterra border around the pool looks best. You can also do a canterra patio, but it's very expensive. Canterra is extremely soft and pourous so water will penetrate it.

If no one locally, where to go see in GDL?
We are thinking about using it for redoing the facade of our FP, which is currently a truly undistinguished "feature" in our LR.
Also, I would think that a stone that is really soft and water absorbent isn't good for pool copings.

The stepping stones here are "adoquin" in Spanish. They come in several sizes, thicknesses, colors and many textures. They can be set in a compressed sand bed, or in concrete. The lighter colors are cool to walk on, and have nice textures for kids to run on.
Many of the construction materials outlets have a display and order them for you, or go to the periferico sur, on the north side, between the Chapala Highway and the Lopez Mateos exit where there are a couple manufacturers with displays who will make them to order and deliver them.
