Evening! Our family is looking to resurface our pool from marcite to PebbleTec/PebbleSheen. We've asked a few PebbleTec authorized retailers to come by and give us some quotes for resurfacing in addition to other items on the wish list. I wanted to run a few things by the group since this will be the first major item we've ever worked on in our home.
- $4200 - Pebblesheen Interior Finish including all drain/prep work, covers and fittings replaced, chemical balancing
$2075 - 6x6 Waterline Tile and 2x6 Cap Tile
- $4251 - PebbleSheen Finish
$435 - 2 Part Bond Kote Adhesion
$95 - New return fittings and VGBA main drain cover
$150 - Equipment fire up and full chemical balance
$2408 - Waterline and Cap Tile
On the surface, it seems like quote #1 would be our best deal but I'm concerned with hidden costs that quote #2 would appear to list in addition to the finish.
I'm assuming PebbleTec requires the renovators to perform the chemical re-balancing for warranty purposes?
The cost for tile in general seems so expensive. We currently have concrete decking which we would love to transition to pavers but I think is too costly right now. I've heard of some folks having the renovators do coping instead of the cap tiles and then the homeowners DIYing the pavers but that scares me, especially since I need to "float" the pavers to even out the junction between the pool deck and lanai. How difficult would it be as a DIY project?
Renvoator #2 also recommended adding on something called trim tile "mud caps" on underwater steps and benches. I'm assuming that's similar to coping but on the stairs/seated areas?
Any help or advice would be most appreciated. If anyone's in the Tampa Bay area and would like to recommend a pool renovator/resurfacer, by all means let me know. Seems the PebbleTec cost is on point for this area though. Thanks!
