I have a couple of questions about the remodeling project I am considering. I have a 28K gallon plastered gunite pool, precast coping in MA. Please excuse my lack of terminology knowledge if I say something silly.
A lot of tiles on the edge around the pool has fallen off or is falling off. It seems that there is some coping stone that are hollow under them. I was told that to fix things right at the very least I need to re-mortar those stones and only then replace tiles. I am considering a larger project with pebble stone and coping stone replacement.
One suggestion is to use cantilever decking. What are the pros and cons of doing this? I understand that it increases the cost of the project but in the long run it could save money by less problems on tile cracking, no need to decko seal every couple of years between coping and the deck, and it may look better as well.
Any comparison pictures avaialble on how it looks like where coping meets the pool walls?
Recommendations for a contractor?
Thanks in advance,
