    How screwed am I? Stopped filling pool mid way after a replaster job: Ring on walls

    Litigation in front of judge...well that will take years. Plus they are just going to say; who turned the water off and why? I dont see this 100% on them or you. So the remedy will likely reflect that.

    #yolo_az New Build!

    With a two story home and rear yard facing north we are not seeing much sun back there. Almost too cold to even sit out there...unless we crank up the fire pit. We did take a little walk in the pool, but that was about it. We have already had some awesome nights with family and friends just...

    #yolo_az New Build!

    Actually they did eventually come back, about 10 days ago and replaced most them. No questions asked. It does seem this Travertine is prettty soft. We are pretty satisfied at this point. Except we won’t be swimming for many months. Water is at 50 degrees today! :(

    #yolo_az New Build!

    not sure of the exact cost as the paver work is part of the PB bid. these were the "level one" pricing though. i think they offered three different pricing levels. they use https://www.monterreytile.com/ who i bet you could call and get pricing info from.

    Re: Not happy with tile choice-advice please! UPDATE: Tile is not the right color yeah, natural stone products all come with that "warning" for the most part. not much you can do, but pay to have it redone.
