My new house has a nice pool and in good shape structurally. It was painted by the previous owners and either needs to be repainted or paint removed and plastered. Also needs to be retiled. I absolutely want plaster over paint, but my quote seems high. What you think????
Location: north NJ shore area
about 40 feet long (probably a little more, I am not sure) and maybe 15 wide. It is not rectangle, more of odd kidney shape. The deep end is probably 8 feet deep. Spa is circle and about 7 feet across. I did ask for pricing to include installing a hand rain at the pool stairs.
* Remove cover - Drain pool and Spa
* Attach underground drain pump if required
* Remove all existing tile in pool and spa
* Sand blast entire pool and spa removing paint to bare concrete for ultimate adhesion
* Removing all sand blasting debris as per EPA regulations
* Grinding out around fittings and tile line out in pool and spa
* Chip out any loose concrete and repair and patch up any cracks remove debris
* Retile from a choice you choose from samples provided by me
* Retile pool and spa add feature strips to stairs and bench
* Install a hand rail by core drilling 2 2” round holes then grounding it to equipment
* Clean out entire pool and spa
* Acid wash pool and spa prep for bond Kote
* Bond Kote pool and spa surface for ultimate adhesion of new plaster to existing pool shell
* Plaster pool and spa with white silica plaster
* Upgrade pool and spa main drain covers
* Assemble and start pool equipment
* Balance pool water chemistry very crucial to the healing process of the plaster
* For ten consecutive days we will come and brush down the pool and spa
I am a 100% DIY kind of guy, but I know my limits. This seem high or relatively accurate?
Also, this site is GREAT. Helped a ton in the water chemistry department when I moved in - had a crystal clear pool all last summer. Thank you!
