When digging, how many inches should I account for my decking?

It all depends on your coping!

Typically, you will use the coping height you purchased to determine this.

  • If you are using bricks or pavers, etc... Measure the thickness of the stone, and add it to your wall height.
  • If you have bull nose coping, it is normally 2 1/2" but measure to be sure.
  • Cantilever coping is usually 3 1/2". 
  • Auto cover coping varies. Check your coping height, and add it to the wall height.
