I just bought a house with a pool that has not been used in 3 years. The pool coping has been disjointed along one side. There is no expansion joint. Upon visual inspection, the pool safety cover anchors have pushed the brick pavers against the coping, i.e. you can see that the pavers are touching the coping in regular pattern - against each anchor. The coping is particularly detached in the corner.
I asked a local guy to tell me how to fix, and he said he will rip up all the coping and put expansion joint and new pavers.
My questions: Is it possible to save the existing coping? The coping is not cracked or damaged in any way.
