time for new floors


I'm a little surprised but don't know what's normal. I had about 1,000 sf of new carpet installed in one day.

My daughter's house is 2,100 sf and all new floor, half carpet and half LVP. We're going on the third week of the 3 workers there. I live nearby so meet them and getting a tired of waiting for them to call every morning to unlock the house. Especially when 8 or 9 turns into 10 am. We did cancel one day due to movers. Yesterday they left because they were putting trim on and only had one nail gun. 2 men left.

They still need to finish cordaround on LVP floors, reinstall 7 closet doors and reinstall one toilet. The planks seemed quick but the trim is taking longer. Since all baseboard was removed, even in closets where LVP went, they numbered walls and baseboard but it was piled in garage and took time to match up. Maybe caulking took longer than we expected

Re: time for new floors


Are these the same guys that were eating the candy and cookies.

If so quit providing free snacks, and the bums will finish and move on.


It does sound a little lax in performance.

Well: THERE'S YOUR PROBLEM.

Free beer, free food, what more can a guy ask for.

Why finish up and leave?

I'm being sarcastic this morning.

Dear Abby used to have advice that went: No one can take advantage of you unless you allow it.


Maybe it's time to get serious with these jokers.

I darned sure wouldn't put up with drinking on a job by any employee.

I quit 39 years ago and don't miss it one bit.

Re: time for new floors


And what about these guys did you say that you liked?

And why keep hiring them, if they keep abusing your generosity?


Excuse my cynicism, but poor conduct by "Handymen", is a peeve of mine.

Just showed up (better late than never). This crew is from the carpet store. They "might" finish today. I asked for 'one' room to be finished at least so I can put things(boxes, etc) without worrying stuff will be in their way and be able to put furniture against wall.
