Good to see LL stepped up. Does $500 cover ripping up all the newly laid flooring as well?
No. 14 boxes of flooring were laid. That is more than should have been laid according to LL and I don't disagree with them.

My brother was trying to make it work and wasn't figuring out the issue initially and pressed on a little too long. We are billing the client $500. Our actual job costs were $675 but we felt that the right thing to do was not make them pay for our crew going a little too long on the project before stopping.

I hope the replacement is better than the other one.

Doing fast math on 14 boxes @ 25' per box. I'd go broke working for that rate/sq ft.

Is that how many feet are in a box? Idk, I'm not a floor guy...

I think you know what I meant by job costs and that was what we paid the guys, WC, taxes, and a tube of glue that was used. Would have been invoiced at over a grand including O&P.

I also didn't bill them for any of my time on it which included quite a few hours and two site visits 40 min away.

He's a fire fighter and they go to our church. Just wanting be a good friend and help out in the midst of a crappy situation as they're trying to get the place finished and move in. Living with her parents right now.

I'm going over tomorrow to hang 15 doors for them as a favor as well.
