Floor Issues

The plumber put a large scratch in the floor when he moved the freezer, necessitating the entire floor to be redone. The work is not acceptable. Here are the latest correspondences.


I don't think a spot repair will suffice. The more that I look at the floor, the less satisfied I am with their fix.

There are light areas by the 'fridge and ovens, by the entrance to the back hall, and near the dining room passage way. The dinnette area has some wide dark and light stripes running parallel to the grain.

The whole floor has a mottled look. I think that the entire floor needs to be redone.

The repair people are coming this Friday to replace the freezer door, so if they can't start today we should wait until next week.

Please call to discuss.

The floor technician will return tomorrow to perform a touchup on the area of the floor by the sink. Yes, I could see the area was lighter, as could the floor rep that was at the house with me.

They will tape off the areas in question and heat up the area with a heat gun to lift the polyurethane. The areas will then be restained. Should all be done when you get home tomorrow evening.

Let me know if you have any questions.

No, I wasn’t able to get into the kitchen when I stopped by, as the floor was still wet. I have contacted the flooring company; I will be meeting with them at 9:00 am tomorrow morning to take a look. I have told them that no one was in the house since they were there on Tuesday and Wednesday of last week. I will let you know what I hear.

I hope you had a pleasant trip.

The tile does look great, but there's a big white spot in front of the main sink. Did you notice that? I think it needs another coat of stain.

Hey Matt:

Here are some updates:

I stopped at the house yesterday—the floor has been refinished and looks great. John completed the tiling and that looks wonderful, also.

The exterior storm door is due the 6th of November. The interior door is due the 16th of November. Both may arrive sooner. We will schedule the installation once both are here. Any final touch up painting can be finished at this time.

I will have my sketch of the pot rack/shelves scanned and e-mailed to you.

Cheerio for now, enjoy you weekend.
