On our new build, we have elected to have a cantilever concrete deck instead of pavers. I ASSUMED that all pool builders would be installing an expansion joint between the coping(bond beam) and the deck or a slip joint to give my deck the best chance of survival. Our builder told us that it was be just one big pour without any expansion joints that separate the bond beam to the deck.
My question is are there any guidelines that pool builders are required to follow, ASPC?, building codes? or is this the norm? Thanx
