Replaster & Tile replacement estimate question.

Recently got an estimate for a re-plaster and the rate seems reasonable at $3100 for plaster up to $5300 for stone scapes. My concern is the proposal states in part:
-Chisel around fittings and lights so new plaster will be even at tile.
-Acid wash old plaster surface to roughen for bonding purposes.

I was under the impression that all old plaster needed to be removed to get the best results. Is this the case? Is it standard practice to ONLY chisel out plaster around fittings and tile for a re-plaster job?

Additionally, the proposal would replace 145' of water line tile for $3700 which is about $25.50 per linear foot. Is this price reasonable? It seems
odd that tile replacement is just as expensive as the re-plaster.

Thanks for your time,

Definitely get a few more estimates. The plaster estimate seems a little high if they aren't going to chip out all the old plaster.

average tile replacement is $35/ft in PA. average size replaster is $4,000. i would expect TX pricing to be lower since lower cost of living

You don't chip out all the old plaster!! They apply it over the old plaster. They do a bondcoat and prep it. Removing any spots in it that could cause for pop ups.

Our basic tile is the K-Series solid tile. At $30 a foot, that must be a really high end tile. When you quote these things you can't say one price fits all.

The plaster quote seems good for my area.... but check references and if they are current with good results...go with them.

I am also in the Los Angeles Area and an replastering my pool. I have a 35,000 gallon pool, with tile it is costing me $6,500 to replaster. Should I convert my pool to a salt water system at the same time. Is it healthier and better system to have?

Just FYI on the salt system. I work for a pool company in Texas and we have stopped putting in salt systems as they will eat your decking and any flagstone you have around the pool. Make sure to ask lots of questions before converting
