I'm building my second owner builder pool and a question came up with my concrete contractor about doing a separate pour for our concrete cantilever deck. My first pool was single pour, so it's a new topic for me, and only found a few mentions of it in the forum.
Our pool is in the Sacramento area and is 38'x19' with a long raised beam along the back side with a fountain area and glass chatter wall. I'm going for a poured in place "faux" coping look along the next to the pool with stamped concrete behind. Our concrete contractor said we may want to do a separate pour for the cantilever, then pour the rest of the deck after. He talked about straighter lines and a cleaner look for the cantilever vs. doing a single pour. In my research I've found suggestions these may be a better construction technique also due to deck movement?
Any thoughts? Is it worth the added expense?
Thanks in advance.
