I need to have my pool with attached spa remodeled with plaster, tile, and coping (in Southlake/Colleyville area.) The bids I have received so far range from $7200-$9500. This seems very high to me. I am just doing basic white plaster, standard tile, and standard coping (no upgrades like flagstone, etc.) Can anyone share their experiences or knowledge of the cost of a basic pool remodel? The pool/spa is 15K gallons with a 90 ft perimeter. 3 ft depth on each end, 5 ft depth in middle. Spa is level with pool - not raised.

probably pool building is slow--so pool remodeling has gotten more expensive to take up the slack...

can't give you any help with the price factor--
check out site on GardenWeb - The Internet's Garden Community for pools and spas--
Swimming Pools and Spas - GardenWeb

very knowledgeable people on all those forums...the pool site has pool contractors, home owners, guys who sell pump/filtration equipment in different areas of the county
think they could give you better idea of pricing for what you want

you have to join to post a question but I did not get lot of spam off it's advertising sites...

I haven't checked in years, but seems high to me. I work in the pool industry. Not tile and plaster however. Last quote I got was 25.00 to 30.00 / perimeter foot. That's just the plaster.
Did you try calling plaster companies direct and not a pool builder?

Have you gotten at least 3-4 bids from different reputable contractors? If you have and all the bids are coming in around that number then there could be some reason that your job site is costing that much. Just remember it nevers hurts to get a 3rd, 4th, or even 5th bid/opinion to insure you are getting the best deal. Also please remember that going with the cheapest bidder is not always in your best interest. Always make sure you do a reference check of whoever you hire.

Had a similar size pool redone last year but we do not have a spa. The quote was $2400 for basic white plaster (1 yr warranty) and $900 to reattach 80% of the flagstones/coping around the pool. Called about 7 of their references and then used them to do the work. Was satisfied with the outcome. The water makes the white plaster appear blue btw.

Guess I cannot name the company but the are on Michigan Ct. in Arlington.

Sounds about right TubaCzar. I am a big fan of white plaster. Your correct about the effect of white plaster and clear water. Add a blue Texas summer sky, and it really looks blue and inviting.

Demo should be 11.00 per lineal ft., you have to count the lineal footage of the inside of the spa as well as the pool. If it is done properly you can get away with a replaster but if the demo gouges the shell too much I HIGHLY recommend that you brown coat the entire shell (add plenty of bonding glue) or even reflash with gunite otherwise you may weaken the shell and have cracks later. Tile can range from 500 to 1500 or more depending on how much there is. Coping with standard stuff 6.00 to 10.00 lineal ft. , new plastic drain covers and nozzles $200 max. Plaster should be 16.00 - 20.00 per lin. ft Make sure to count the entire perimeter of the spa as well. Make sure to check for any existing cracks after the old plaster demo, they will likely show up as lines that stay damp for a while after the rest of the shell dries. Fix them now or deal with a structural crack later. Hope that helps.
