Poured in place concrete coping
Hi all, I just discovered this site and love it. We are in process of building a pool. We have a poured in place concrete coping completed and they are starting to make the expansion cuts in the coping itself. My question is can these cuts or joints now be filled in with grout? Spoke to the contractor and was told they leave the cuts. I'm sure they will be sealed somehow, but they look like they go through the concrete and I'm concerned about pinching skin or bugs and junk filling in the cracks. Am I wrong in thinking that these joints should be filled? Thanks for any advice. Deck has not been poured yet. If these joints are filled would they do it at the same time they fill the joint between the deck and the coping?
