Raising coping to match deck overlay

stephenmorris73April 3, 2012

Would like your opinions on the best method to address this problem. My existing coping surrounding the inground pool is precast concrete which is level with the existing concrete deck. Plans are to add a 1/2" stamped concrete overlay to the deck but this will cause the deck to be 1/2" higher than the coping.

Option 1: remove the coping, mortar underneath and raise them 1/2" to match the deck height. What about the gap poolside between the underside of the coping and the top of the tile?

Option 2: don't know whether this is even an option. Continue the concrete overlay onto the top side of the coping and blend into coping keeping the expansion joint open.

Other options?

Thank you.

I would expect neither option to work actually. Once the old coping is removed, its toast and needs to be replaced with new coping.

You can't layer over existing coping either, that I have ever heard of. It flakes off in chunks.
