Need to have a pool re-plastered and would appreciate some insight.
* A local (Austin, TX) plaster contractor raised his bid 20% from last year. Have energy costs affected materials to this degree?
* Another contractor submitted a bid in which he plans to only pressure wash the existing plaster. No sandblasting! My initial impression is this guy is less than trustworthy.
* Any suggestions of specific requirements to include in a replastering contract?
- Material requirements?
- Minimum acceptable warranty?
- preparatory work?
