I've been pushing off the inevitable for a few years, but the time has come to get the pool replastered, along with new waterline tile. I've been looking through the forum for any recommendations of builders or replasterers in the area, but no luck. We have a roughly 20x40 oval-ish IG gunite pool with plaster finish and attached spa. We are starting to see some patches of plaster come off on the pool bottom in the shallow end, and there are about 10 linear feet of waterline tile missing.
Part of my foot-dragging is that I'd also like to
1) make the pool deck all one flat level, instead of having the last 2-3 feet of decking being 6 inches higher than the lower level, which would mean that I'd also need to
2) install new paving, and probably coping for the pool, but then I could
3) lay down track for an auto-cover so that I don't have to do battle with the solar bubble wrap cover.
but that's a big chunk of change to lay down all at once, and other things keep coming up. I know it would be cheaper to do all of the above at once, but that might not be in the budget.
On the positive side, the (DE) filter, heater and pump are a few years old and in good shape.
Are there any SoCal forumites who have suggestions for companies that do a good replastering job? Or, can people tell me where to look on the forum for suggestions?
Thanks for any pointers!
