    Thank you @ajw22 and @onBalance for the clarification. After all of that, now it doesn’t even matter because the plaster guys told me they only do one radius and that’s it. I did not know this. We are getting pebble sheen so maybe that’s why? Sigh...oh well.

    So we are almost ready for plaster. Have some questions about the forming of steps and benches. I realized that none of our benches or steps have pronounced edges whatsoever. We want our pool to have a modern look. Not sure if this can still be achieved. Talked to plaster guy and he said all...

    Help! Need someone in Vegas to install our Coping!

    Hi Maddie, unfortunately no. The contractor we went with continues to not show up. Going on 4 days of no shows now. And no one else available and need this done asap since I already have my plaster date. And good idea...I’ll have to ask there! Thanks!

    Help! Need someone in Vegas to install our Coping!

    Hey everyone I can’t seem to find anyone that can do our coping with porcelain pavers at a reasonable price within a reasonable time frame. I am in Las Vegas. Does anyone have someone they can refer? Thanks!

    Darn, I guess you’re right that there isn’t much I can do. I attached the video of that area being shot prior to them handpacking the rest of it. Maybe you can just take a look if you see anything.

    I have another video of how much was shot and how much was hand placed. Any suggestions on what I should do at this point?

    It was blown on. It was overdug as well. However, it was not just an inch or two that was hand added. It was definitely at minimum 12 inches! 😩

    Are they packing rebound around rebar here? Looks like they are handpacking this entire interior wall of the spa :/ below is a 2 minute video . Please let me know your thoughts. Thank you!

    Thanks @kimkats! I will certainly try to find an expert but not sure how to find one as there were literally only 3 shotcrete/gunite companies in this area so don’t know who to consult about it? Should I get a structural engineer to come out and assess?

    New Owner Builder Project Advice would be much appreciated!

    I could hardly find any shotcrete/gunite subs. I found all of 3 here in Vegas let alone a shotcrete consultant but I will certainly try! Is there any level/amount of using rebound/excess concrete that is maybe not best practice but a minimal amount is not the end of the world? I am trying to...

    He told me to water 3x/day for 3 weeks. Told me not to schedule plaster until at least 2 weeks minimum from now but 3 weeks is better. Is there any level/amount of using rebound/excess concrete that is maybe not best practice but a minimal amount is not the end of the world? I am trying to...

    Yeah...I thought so. Sigh. What does this mean now? Is the structural integrity compromised? Will it crack? I do not know what to expect.

    Thanks James. Is there not a way to post videos on this site? What I saw was all the loose material being formed into benches and wall of spa. I don’t know if it actually bounced off. Here is a more specific question. The concrete that is being scraped off as the walls are being smoothed and...

    Thank you for the resources. I will look into it. Here is a small video. I am trying to make sure I understand what rebound is. But the fact that they did not haul off any excess concrete is a pretty sure fire way to know they just used all of the rebound correct? I was hoping maybe I was...

    Soooo....shotcrete day was yesterday. I don’t know a lot but looked to me like they formed a large part of the spa, wet deck, steps with rebound. They did not haul off anything. No excess at all. Asked the owner and he said shotcrete doesn’t produce rebound. Isn’t rebound just all the globs that...
