    Coping Replacement

    Hi All --
    First time poster here, but found the site and think it's a terrific resource. We have a 16x36 inground pool in the backyard made of concrete with fiberglass walls. Above the fiberglass is some white coping with blue stripes that is damaged (some discoloration, chips, even the concrete behind it swelling and pushing it out).

    The way I see it, we have a few options:

    1. Cut out the concrete and coping and replace: This sounds messy, risky (in terms of possibly damage to the liner) and expensive.
    2. Paint the existing coping: Solves some of my personal distaste for the border issues, but doesn't repair the cracking or other defects.

    A third option that I'd like to consider is actually adding a stone border to the pool with an overhang that covers the existing coping (remove demolition for the project (aside from perhaps cutting down any of the areas where the concrete has swelled out). Has anyone seen anything like this done? I have to believe it would be more cost effective than either of the other options and would probably look really nice.

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    I believe you have similar coping as what I posted on this thread: http://www.troublefreepool.com/threa...le-replacement

    Our clients (Landscaper by trade here) ultimately opted to tear out all the old coping and pour a new 12" wide stamped concrete coping using Stegmeier forms. I would have to look to double check, but I believe it came out to about $4000 for a little over 100 lineal feet.

    It looks very similar to that. The coping style was slightly different, but the type looks to be about the same. You mentioned around $4k, how long did it take for that process to go from demo to completion (ballpark)?

    Depending on how the demo goes, a competent crew should be able to do it in 1-2 days. We had one full day then a couple hours the next, for power washing and sealing the stamped concrete.
