I’ve built custom gunite pools from the ground up using subcontractors for the large tasks but also doing my own tile & coping, deck, plumbing, designing, etc.
The techniques I have developed for structural integrity as well as aesthetics are well tested and have lasted much longer than traditional workmanship.
There are many different ways to replace tile. We remove the existing tile, strip down the old thin set, add a new layer of acrylic fortified mortar,
and set the new tile with acrylic fortified thin set and grout.
Believe it or not there are companies out there who lay the new tile right over top of the old tile, even the loose ones! This is unacceptable and will diminish the durability of the new installation.
We pay special attention to detail regarding aesthetic values but also in regards to structural stability and longetivity.
