My PB said they will make every effort to remove what that can before pouring the decking but should I be concerned if most of it is still in place?
He made the comment that some of it is virtually impossible to remove which makes me believe they may or may not make an effort before pouring the decking.
My concerns are a) termites and b) creating a void later down the road when the material decays away between gunite and deck. On the other hand I understand that decking needs expansion joints from a home foundation so would this actually benefit me in the long run if my patio the decking is tied to moves?
What did your PB do?
