hey guys, im in eastern Ontario, Canada. where it gets very cold in winter. I am doing an estimate for an outdoor area, a wading area of a pool that is under about a foot of water. I have to give a price to re-level the 2 pads 15x25 feet the original contractor used a "topping " material that wasn't recommended for freeze thaw, and the concrete lifted and came apart. so they will remove that but I have to re level, and install tile, likely 2x2 mosaics, and use kerabond keralastic because it will be submerged under water. I want to charge a lot for this job because of the difficulties involded with keralastic, and mosaics. im also requesting a rep from mapei to come assess the job before I give my price, because we don't know if the substrate is even done right therefor the whole pool may fail eventually. but they want it open for the summer, so I may provide a price but it will be based on a cosmetic fix, I cannot guarantee the job wont fail based on the existing problems. and they will have to sign off that im not responsible.
what do you guys think for a sqft price for this one? thanks

ps ii have 20 years experience, schlurter certified, wedi certified,
and its the area between the 2 brick colums it was just painted concrete but they want it tile.

Fix your substrate, mapeilastic 315 with fabric, then tile with proper expansion joint(s). Of course consult with your rep for best products/practices for your situation. Don’t bid by the foot, figure your time and materials and add markups to both.
