Good morning, now that it is starting to turn to "spring" here in the northeast and temps are supposed to get above 50 I am starting to get itchy to start working outside.
Here is what I want to do and I am looking for advice.
I have an old gunite pool built in the early 70's. The pool is ok, does not leak, needs new waterline tiles and I am sure a good cleaning (this will be our first summer in house).
Around the pool there is an existing concrete deck, maybe 3 feet wide, it seems to be in good shape, although painted/stained blue. At first I thought about ripping this up and installing 1200 feet of 4x8 pavers around pool. Now I am thinking of leaving the concrete because of work to remove it (what is the best way to remove it without damaging pool), disposing of conrete and it saves me money on brick.
So the question is "Is butting the pavers to the concrete a good solution? How can I make it look good (if I can)? Would I need an expansion joint in between?
Or should I just remove old concrete, which was my first plan and if so what is the least impacting way of getting this out?
