Hello, I just signed up recently and learning a LOT from this forum. I'm planning on getting an inground pool next year. I've been leaning towards fiberglass, probably 16x35ish. Most of the pool companies I've researched indicate they come with 4 ft or so of concrete around the perimeter of the pool included in the price. I really prefer the look of pavers but the lower maintenance/installation of concrete is tempting too. Looking to find a middle ground. Let's say concrete is $7/sf installed and it's 6 inches thick. Would it be realistic or even possible to have it laid at 3 inches thick, reducing the coverage cost to $3.50/sf? At that point, I would love to diy travertine or some kind of stone paver on top. My thinking behind this is that the base, leveling/sloping, etc are done and solid. No worries about weeds growing through stones because of concrete underneath. Just easier maintenance and the look I want. I would imagine installation would be a breeze doing it directly on top of concrete. Has anyone done anything like this before or have an idea on how much you could cut back on concrete thickness without worrying about long term issues? Thanks!
