Possible to replace coping and tile but not the quartz plaster?

We have a pool that is only 7 years old. Flagstone is badly deteriorated (salt water pool). We did seal it but it may have just been cheap, not sure... but its pretty bad at this point. My plaster is still smooth... I have heard 2 things. 1. yes it can be done, they would cut below the tile and patch (but we may be able to see this area and the plaster may get stained while they are working) 2. No, it cant or really shouldn't needs to all be done at same time.

Any experience or thoughts on this situation?

We have a free form pool.

Thanks so much, KIM

it can be done but the chances of it looking like its supposed to be that way are probably slim. , As with anything in the construction/ remodel business, how noticeable or attractive (or not) it will be when finished depends entirely upon the attention to detail, and skill of the people doing the work.

The only thing I see wrong in the picture is the Texans shirt... :mrgreen:

I think I have the same waterline tile that you have...
