One would have to see it to give a good guess - hence you need a couple of bids for comparison, and be sure you get reputable contractors - you do not want some one-many handyman outfit doing this and dropping pieces on your pool tiles or pumphouse and breaking them.


Off the cuff, I would be surprised if you got it for less than about $800-1000 and that in an area with very cheap dump fees, and depending on what it is made of (like structural aluminum or steel, hurricane rated) then could easily bump up to $2000 range.


Pay attention to getting a credit on bids for metal value (if metal), and to what is going to be done to support column fasteners - cut and ground off flush with deck (qwuick and dirty but sloppy, and will rust), or drilled out to below deck level and treated with rusty metal primer, then after dry hole grouted flush to deck, or in the extreme replace any tiles anchor holes were drilled in (if in tile and not outside pool deck area). If on posts/piers outside pool deck, then are piers to be removed, cut off flush to ground, or cut off say 3-6 inches below ground - affects cost quite a bit. Ditto to in-ground guywire anchors.
