Fiberglass pool steps

My pool steps are 31 years old and need replacing. Liner is out. Is this difficult to do? Or does anyone know someone who does this in the Greensboro, NC area?

The steps can be refinished for under $400. if you do the work. No experience is needed but there is some labor involved. Check out They provide the material and instructions. They invented the "DIY restoration of vinyl liner pool steps" system more than 10 years ago. Contractors charge up to $10,000. for new steps that are no better than the steps you already have, after you restore them.
It's a little easier if the liner is out, but since your new liner must be in by now, you'll just have to use a drop cloth and be a little more careful. It sure beats spending between $5,000. and $10,000. for new steps. -Glassguy1. :D

If you can restore them then do that.

Replacing steps is a big deal. You have to cut them out and jackhammer concrete behind them. The cost would be very high.
