    Deck / House Foundation Tie-in

    Whats the general consensus/best practice here about NOT having the new pool deck tied (via rebar every few feet) into the existing porch/house foundation? And just having some sort of expansion joint between the two monolithic structures...

    I can see both points of view on this one...

    NOT on the rebar. The structures need to move independantly.

    Are you pouring a concrete pool deck that will butt the existing concrete foundation of the house?

    There's an expansion joint between the foundation/porch, and decking...
