Got A Bite On A Swimming Pool Deck


1/4 of the circumference need framing ideas with minimum amount of footers. There's a conc wall to attach ledger to so thaat end is covered. Just a little foggy about how to butt the pool. I got an idea with 2 beams i long and 1 short.

Decking over the pool ledge or under?

Throw the ideas out please

If you have some photos of the area it would help visualize possibilities........

I'll get them in the next couple of days and post them. This is not my ideal project but I landed it so. I just want simplicity. I hate those designs with footing overkill

Re: Got A Bite On A Swimming Pool Deck


I've built two decks over pool coping. I'll see if I can dig them up.

I’ve done over and under, either way you need to leave room for the cover to be installed. I liked the look of under better.

Re: Got A Bite On A Swimming Pool Deck


I did this one a long time ago. We had to scribe and cut the underside of the joists to fit over the little bump on the pool deck's edge. I'll try and find those pics but I doubt I can, way before digital cameras.

Re: Got A Bite On A Swimming Pool Deck


I made some crazy coping out of wood last year. Bent Ipe around the pool edge and did a ribbon around the pool. Looks really cool.

As far as framing... Beam under joists and cantilever. Block the ends and you're good.

The top few rows of brick can be removed and there's a conc wall behind to mount the ledger

I was just informed today he wants composite. I hate composite. Mike loves it.

It will basically be the area where the brick is back to the pool.

I will need to figure the composite w/o a lot of waste. It only comes in 16' and the main body is 10x12 with that leg going around the side. Maybe I get a little design happy with the decking configuration? Either way I'm going under the coping I think.

Re: Got A Bite On A Swimming Pool Deck


Always go below on above ground pools. If you go above it makes for real pita to change the liner.

Use a brand that has non-grooved boards, most of them did when I was still at it.

Should I go with 12 or 16 centers? I already know I have to knock all the crowns down to avoid any waving.

Laying perpendicular to joists or at an angle? Which product are you using?

Use square edge for the ends. If the boards are perpendicular, 16 inch centers.
