I’ve noticed a chip out of a Bluestone paver/coping around our pool. The chip is about 3cm long. Looking for a way to repair it without replacing the entire paver.
Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community @tiv2. It's brilliant to have you join us, and many thanks for your question about repairing a chip in a paver.
I don't suppose you have the missing piece? If not, it would be relatively challenging to fashion any sort of unnoticeable repair. You could attempt to build the area back up into shape with epoxy putty. You'd then need to paint the repaired area to blend it in. You could make the area more noticeable if you don't get the repair or colour right.
It's a bit hard to tell from your photo, but is there a profile to the coping, or is it just a square edge? If it's a square edge, could the paver be spun around, hiding the damaged edge?
Please let me know if you have any questions.
thanks for the response.
The paver is a 20mm drop face paver (40mm drop).
Unfortunately I don’t have the chip though to glue back on.
If I go down the epoxy putty path, any suggestions on paint type?
Hi @tiv2 , I have an alternative view, to consider. ..
The pitted surfaces of the pavers not only give grip but give them character. You could consider this chip as another bit of character too, a part of the story of just being there. You could then soften the sharp edges of the chip with a grinding wheel (hand-held, not in a machine), or an off-cut of tile if you have one, to make it blend in more smoothly.
(I am assuming that it is your own pool.)
