We are trying to decide on what to do for decking around our pool. We originally planned on doing about 1500 ft of concrete but now I'm getting worried about running into issues with a lot of cracking and stuff. I know that concrete cracks but it seems like I've read that some recommend not pouring the deck until the following year which realistically isn't an option for us. I can't imagine no decking around a new pool that will be done by may.
I have friends that do concrete work for a living they just don't do pool decks generally. I can save a ton of money by having them do it for me. I can probably do the decking for around $2 ft or so.
What main things do I need to have them worry about that are specific to IG VL pools?
Also, I've read many posts that reference bond beams when pouring the deck but I'm not totally sure I know what the bond beam is.
