Would you mention this to your contractor?


Hi all, I'm in the process of wrapping up a long and drawn out remodel - I was having a look through today at the new floors and noticed one certain area was out of level by about 1/4 inch.

In your opinion, would this be worth making a big deal about - I just want them to finish at this point, exhausted with this whole process.

Thank you,

I guess it all depends on your point of view. If it's something that you are going to notice forever and keep yourself in the butt for down the road then by all means you should tell him about it! On the other hand if you feel it's so miniscule that you'll forget about it after a little while and don't worry about it!

That looks like prefinished flooring so I'm not quite sure how that happened. Since it's near the edge it may be quite easy to correct.

Thanks for your reply :D - These are cherry hard wood floors, not engineered or laminated. Right - since it's so close to the edge i'm just not sure if it is an easy fix. or how does one fix it? If it's a simple matter of just throwing a shim under there then I might be inclined to address it, but i don't want him to have to rip the whole section up because that will take more time..

By all means talk to him about it. You may be surprised by his response. But at least get a response. Then go from there.

Toolseeker is correct.I am a contractor and appreciate my customers opinions on all of my work.He may give you an answer that satisfies you for the issue or he may fix it.Never know until you ask.Could be something that one of his guys overlooked.

It looks like that 1/4 inch occurs whilst transitioning from one room to another. Is this new floor transitioning from one room to another with possibly a different subfloor? And if so, were there any discussions as to what the remedy would be if this situation were to crop up?

that 2x4 doesn't look straight to me , try using a real straight edge might be a lot closer than it looks

No... He had nothing to do with it... you might want to mention it to yours.


(Photobucket wouldn't work for me?)

Good luck
