Re: Replacing deck & coping on a vinyl liner pool
Dragging this really old post out of the dusty archives....
So, I'm facing an identical situation, with the exception that a couple years ago I hired a slab jacking company to come in and level several of the sections also. That actually was about 80% successful. It being old concrete the act of drilling holes actually caused a couple more cracks, and the drill holes are permanently a different color where they were patched. Also 2 of the sections had drifted a half inch or so out of position and there wasn't much the jacker could do for those. But the slabs are mostly leveled and for $2300 it was a decent stop-gap move to prevent stubbed toes if nothing else till a new deck could be installed.
Which brings me to this point in time and pulling out this old post. Was there any resolution? I wouldn't dare attempt this on my own but I'd like to hear what others have done under similar conditions. We're getting ready for a major make-over and want to consider our options. I'd throw in that I'm also considering some of the wood decks I see built around pools as maybe a possible option? As in, right over the concrete.
