Got an 18X36 IG pool surrounded by 30 year old concrete. The concrete has some cracking and some settling and just looks unsightly.
Quotes to tear it up and put down pavers start at 16K and go up. More than I want to spend. Tearing it out and putting in new concrete starts 11K, but it could crack and settle all over again.
So, now I was thinking instead I'd just build a deck with composite wood right over the existing concrete instead. Still about 6K in materials, but that's a lot cheaper than 16K. I was thinking I would try to make it as low as possible...like maybe only 1 foot higher than the current deck if possible. I would just need to do something around the coping area since the deck will be higher than the pool, but I'll figure it out.
Anyways...anyone ever seen this done? Anyone have any opinions as to whether or not this is a good idea or bad idea?
