Gunite resurfacing, tiling, and concrete repair cost.


Jul 24, 2017
I have this old gunite pool from the 60s, no leaks, new equipment, but it needs some work. The pool is estimated to be around 30,000 gallons. The pool to me looks like it popped up, supposedly the last owner hadn't opened the pool for a 10 year stretch and might have had it drained. There's only a few companies near me that even do gunite work, most people here have above ground or fiberglass. Also, it's a tight squeeze on the side of the house to get equipment to the backyard.

I'd like it resurfaced, leveled off with new concrete, retiled and slightly expanded for more room around the pool. Should I expect this to cost 50k+ and is it even fixable? My big concern is that it popped up and wasn't repaired. Unlikely to get a quote this year they're real busy and might be booked through next year. I just wanna know if I should keep it on my home repair to do list or just leave it as is.

I don't know what the second picture is showing. Did the pool pop or did the ground around it sink?

If the pool is not losing water then the "pop" is probably not very serious.

Only way for you to know what repairs will cost you is to get a few quotes. Prices from other areas are of no value if you don't have anyone who can do the work at that price.
