    Remodel Advice - Cmasty Remodel Thread

    I am in the beginning phases of planning a remodel. THis will probably go one of two ways.

    Method 1:

    Redo Tile, cleanup cool-deck and live with the plaster and cool deck.

    Method 2:

    Redo tile, tear out cool deck and coping and replace with travertine.

    Here are a couple pics of the pool. It is about 30x18 and plaster is in overall good shape. There is some spotting/mottling but it doesnt look bad to me - actually I think the pictures accentuate the spotting.

    My main complaint is the outdated tile.

    I have a couple questions.

    1. How difficult would it be to retile this myself? I am pretty handy and have most tools including a wet tile saw. Is there anything specialized about pool tile vs bathroom and kitchen work?
    2. What is the procedure or is there a thread (I searched and could not find) detailing steps to pool tile replacement?
    3. Is there a good website online where I can source the tile online?

    Little Tile is a great online resource for mosaics and tile. He can give you all the info you will need.
