    Concrete Pour is tomorrow and I won't have the 90degree corners I expected

    Deck drains drain on both ends, pipe is exposed on both long-ends of the concrete deck. I'll be running pipe to another area for better drainage. I also have 20linear feet of those deck drains left over, they were about $56/10ft. If you want to save a couple bucks i'd be happy to ship. They...

    ...Soon to sign contract in raleigh, NC area...need some recommendations

I have also had a pretty good relationship with the hired excavator and learned quite a bit of history of pool building in...

    Concrete Pour is tomorrow and I won't have the 90degree corners I expected

    Here they are! I think they did a great job. Some rough edges, but I have to remember it's concrete, not sculpting plaster. I could probably smooth some things out once it's more stable.

    I have a 6" radius vinyl liner. The track doesn't make a curve, but has 3 straight pieces that come together in a sort of hex shape. The concrete framing guys told me today that they have to follow the liner track with the coping forms and can't make a 90degree turn. This was news to me, but it...

    Thanks everyone. I really appreciate the advice. I think I will be patient and wait for cantilever concrete coping.

    Coping Options and Deck Advice

    The best quote I have so far on cantilever concrete coping is $13 per linear foot (that's not even stamped). Our pool is 108 linear feet, which would be $1,404. With the stone option you presented, I'd need 54 pavers * $22 = $1,188. Granted, the cost of laying them will bring it up a little...

    Coping Options and Deck Advice

    Our pool still has no concrete decking and I have been looking at alternate options instead of doing a cantilever concrete edge. One option that seems to look very nice is a stone coping with concrete decking poured up to it. Is there a reason to avoid doing something like this? We have a...
