Avoiding Problems With Your Pool’s Cantilevered Concrete Coping

Pool installation doesn’t have to be a tricky procedure, but there are some mistakes that can impact its style. One of the most common and easy to avoid is mistakes in cantilevered concrete coping.

What Is Cantilevered Concrete Coping?

Concrete coping is a thin layer of concrete poured around the surface of the pool to help protect it from erosion damage. When it is properly poured and maintained, it will be level and remain sturdy and strong for years to come.

Improper pouring can cause it to slope and decay, making it crucial to understand how your pool installation experts install this item and mistakes that could cause it severe damage.

Common Mistakes To Avoid

One of the most common problems that occur when pouring this concrete is a dirty form or coping that is muddled and poorly maintained. This will decrease the quality of the concrete as it dries and causes it to sag. Thankfully it is possible to catch this problem before the concrete dries and fix it. However, if it dries this way, there will be a seriously expensive repair procedure necessary to make your pool look great again.

Getting It In Right

To avoid the above-mentioned mistakes, it is important to eliminate air bubbles in the concrete with smoothing and other processes. Talk to your pool insulation experts about this while they work in order to gauge their effectiveness in installing your pool.

They should also tap the outside of the form on the concrete to vibrate it gently and break apart these bubbles and bring the cream to the surface of the concrete. If you are worried about this pool installation problem and need help fixing it, please contact us today to learn more.
