Thanks, Jeff and Howard! Howard, you are exactly right..........I had NO concept of what installing a floor was like until I saw what all they had to do. It makes me wonder how people manage to use the 'do it yourself' approach. Even those who have some talent, lol. I know my hubby would never attempt it, and neither would I. The last step in this whole process is getting that one bad area repaired (to our existing wood) and doing a poly finish over all of it, then I think I will be 100% happy
Different person doing the repairs and poly, so I hope he is as good as our installers were. He was recommended by the company who installed, so I take that as a good sign
I'm glad to hear that $100 was an insulting amount. Wish I could have given more!
