Hi all - I've edited this post to ask the following:
1. Should I have a mastic/expansion joint separting the "coping" and the rest of the pool deck?
2. How would/could this be fixed?
3. When putting the cantilever forms on, should the cove strip have been used?
This was not a diy.
Hi all - new to posting - but have been lurking and learned much!
We just put in a 16X38 fiberglass pool. The concrete deck and concrete cantilever coping has only been in for three days and the coping is not good. There are waves, edges, nails and plastic tie parts sticking out, etc. To make matters worse, they did not put a mastic joint between where the coping was and the deck.
My question is: can we measure from the front of the pool and go back 13" and cut out the concrete coping and then put in some type of stone coping?
Just about every repair person I spoke with today has told me without a mastic joint it is going to be very iffy/not good. Only two were willing to come look at it and see if it would be doable.
Any advice or suggestions?
