    is this estimate reasonable?

    I think its a little weird how the labor AND materials to add a bench around my entire shallow end is less than the labor to set the single row of tiles. Also not going to do the booster pump.

    I was wondering about the mastic/sealer between the coping and pool deck. If I plan on replacing the pool deck with pavers in the next year or two what should I do about this?

    I've never renovated a pool, but I've done plenty of tile work. It isn't the labor to set the tile, it is the labor to remove the tile and clean up the substrate prior to setting the tile that gets you. That is hard work.

    Yeah I recently replaced a broken tile in a bathroom so I can see that.

    So the mastic seems like kind of a waste if i am going to be laying pavers in the future?

    Prices seem in line with numbers I saw in planning my remodel work. Deck O Seal seams a little high but if that is the entire perimeter of the pool it probably is reasonable. I wouldn't do the deck o seal if you are redoing your deck in the near future.

    Yeah, i'd wait to do the deckoseal until everything is finished. Deckoseal should be around $4 per foot.
