A few weeks ago I treked up to the Daniels Road area of Fort Myers, Florida hoping to get installation pictures of somecustom handcraped hardwood flooring we sold to a builder in the area. Prior to the sale they claimed they had installers lined up for the job, but what kind of installers I wondered? Or better yet did the installers know what they were doing?
This is a classic example of somebody trying to save a few bucks in what will be a highly visible country club setting once completed. Sorry folks I will not get into details of the builder name or exact location because it makes me sick just thinking about it. Real skilled idiots the way I look at it. The moment I walked in the door without looking at the newly installed area red flags were waving.
Not only did they fail to use the proper amount of adhesive that is required to gluedown hardwood floors, but the method in which the floor was started was wrong. Needless to say I did not want to stay around long. Afterall the people that bought the flooring said they had installers lined up for the job.
I would gander a guess even the most uneducated consumer can figure out what's wrong in the picture below. Give up? These skilled idiots were too lazy to handle this job in any way remotely proper. Hardwood flooring should be installed with each plank being staggered from one another and not lined up where the end joints meet up with each other!
