We knew there'd be problems before we moved in. I didn't get that the discoloration on the floor meant water damage. We called the insurance company who sent a crew out June 28 and stayed with us until July 6 and disappeared.
The insurance company had wired money to our bank in addition to paying Service Master. okay, additional expenses like the plumber, electrician . . . but wait. We still need more than just a sub floor. . . Installation
We finally heard back from Service Master on August 11, I believe. It was by phone on Friday and they said they'd be out on Monday. They weren't. Roland received a call after 6:00 pm on Tuesday. A representative came to give an estimate, which Roland tore apart and ended up agreeing to dry wall only. Oh, and let's not forget the furnace that has been in our kitchen the last 6 weeks. And please return our daughter's possessions!
Dry wall put in. Furnace installed but not connected. Jenna's belongings didn't arrive until Friday. To save ourselves some money, we decided to paint and install the floors ourselves. Some pictures I have posted already. But here is a synopsis of our lives June 28 through today.
