We had a new dishwasher that wasn't hooked up right, and leaked for about a month before we realized what was going on. Now we have a warped floor, and it took several months before I knew that I could see if insurance would cover it, then it took 6 months to get our insurance company to send us any money. It's been a really hard struggle to get any contractors to come in and give us an estimate, and then half of the guys I did get in here didn't send me the estimate they promised.
So now we've decided that we have to fix it ourselves because out of the only two estimates I got, one was too expensive and the other one was from a contractor that has never worked on a manufactured home. He was surprised to see the steel chassis under the house. Then he would never return the calls of my insurance company, so I'm not confident in his ability to do the job.
In a couple of weeks we'll be gutting out the kitchen and fixing the floor and putting in all new oak cabinets. Between the insurance money and the tax stimulus money we have enough to cover that. We had fake wood cabinets before and Joy has been peeling off the wood sticker.
I've been so disappointed in the quality of everything the builder put in this house. It's only 4 years old and looks so crappy because of the kids and the poor quality combined.
We'll be putting in Shaw laminate wood floors in the kitchen and possibly in the family room, depending on how much we have left after fixing the sub floor.
I'll be sure to post the before and after pictures.
