    Pool liner quality vs price?

    Our 10-yr old liner needs to be replaced due to some holes and significant fading.
    A highly recommended fellow came by with brochures from 2 companies; we settled on this one:
    http://www.garrettliners.com/

    He recommended 27 mil and for removal of old and install of new liner quoted $2850 for a 16 x 32 in-ground.
    The price seems high to me and I would appreciate the thoughts of others on the liner company and the pricing.
    Any other suggestions and questions we should ask as we shop/decide are greatly appreciated!

    Thanks,
    Bob

    That price seems reasonable. You might get a little lower price if you could have it done at a slower time of year.

    Sargent,
    Thanks! I wasn't sure if this was about right or way too high. It is my first (and likely last) new liner purchase.

    I would say reasonable, but all markets are different

    Balagreta,
    I know the guy needs some profit, what might be the price of the liner only?

    For a 16x32 I charge 2450.00 this is a pool with no steps or a fiberglass step. I don't break my jobs down ie liner is this price and labor is this. I include liner labor and new faceplates.If I just sold the liner it would be around 1900.00,but my main business is installing new pools and liners are a sideline

    Thanks a lot Balagreta! I have steps and in Philadelphia suburbs so his price is likely market competitive.

    Got a quote from last year for same size here in Cincinnati for $2500, so your price seems good. Garrett makes a great product.
