Repairing Pool Delamination


We've just had an offer on a house accepted and now enter a 15 day "walk-away-for-any-reason" period.

My big concern is the pool and surrounding concrete patio. The house was built in 1984 as was the pool and patio. They maintained the house but there is no record of any permits being taken out for any work since then.

The pool is filled and looks like the plaster has delaminated in certain areas.






From what you can see, does this look like it will an expensive repair?

Re: Repairing Pool Delamination


By the pictures it looks like the pool sat stagnant and had possibly heavy algae growth in those areas which can deteriorate the finish in the pool.
Just a guess though...

$8K-10K to do the pool, perimeter tile and bullnose included. $12K for the cage and another $10-12K to tear out the patio tile, install new drains and pavers.

And then there was the dock, the 31 year old kitchen & bathrooms, the leaky plumbing fixtures, the rusty electrical fixtures and finally, structural problems.

It only takes a sledge hammer on the head a few times to get me to walk away, so I did.
