How to renovate broken up pool with cooldeck
We are seeking advice on how to best renovate our pool deck (house built in 1970, age of pool unknown). The pool itself is in very good condition with diamond coat. The deck dropped an inch on one end (probably due to broken sprinkler (now fixed) which eroded that end of the pool before we moved in). The coping was badly cracked and must be removed. What would the experts recommend? Removing the 4 x 12 foot decking that was eroded and broken on one end, remove the whole deck around pool? (It is old and has some big cracks in it.) There are no pieces of replacement coping available. We prefer to not have pavers, since our neighbor did this and the pool deck is now so HOT they can't walk on it, and we like the lighter look of concrete or cool deck. Also, the current top of pool is oxygenated a strange dark gray that is unsightly. Can a few inches of diamond coat be removed to add waterline tiles at the top of the diamond coat? Thanks for the guidance. We don't know whether to call a pool company or concrete company? Your suggestions are appreciated!
