Our PB neglected to ensure that the waterline tile was ordered in time, so now we don't have any available and have to wait a week. The issue is: the pool is at tile and coping stage. Most pool builds I have seen have the waterline tile installed before coping, but now our PB wants to install coping now and then install tile.
Tile is 2"x12" glass tile with a brick pattern and the coping is travertine 12"x24"x2"thick.
Why is tile typically installed first and what are the negatives to reversing the process?
Thanks in advance!
