Question regarding my newly remodeled pool

Feb 24, 2013
Hi all,

I recently had my pool remodeled and noticed something that kind of bothered me. I noticed there is no mastic or grout between my spa veneer and my decking. It was not obvious during a normal day. But when we had a bad weather, it became really muddy near that area. It also looks kind of crappy to have a gap there.

Is this normal? Is it something that my pool contractor should've done when he did the remodel? And advice is welcomed, thanks.
