aquabright worth the money?

Hi all,

Time to redo the plaster on the house we just bought (this was known going in). Quotes are coming in around 13-15k for plaster or quartz, and the lone aquabright installer is quoting 15k plaster 17k quartz 19k aquabright. Ouch! I had originally worked 9k into the negotiation on the house, definitely underestimated.

This seems high compared to other quotes I've read around the internet - or is this the going rate these days?

Thanks!

Yes thanks! Great threads. I am sold on aquabright generally, just trying to figure out if the quote I got is typical/reasonable. Not sure if there is really an alternative as I doubt anyone is going to travel from Dallas or Houston for a job

One of the threads mentions that AB should theoretically be cheaper, as you can put it over the old plaster (assuming its in good condition). Replastering should involve a labor-intensive process of chipping out the old plaster down to the gunite. Check with the installer to make sure he isn't chipping out the old plaster and putting a new layer on and then AB over that. Maybe it will bring the cost down......
