This flooring contractor was living hell from the beginning. From the fact that the floor wasn't sanded, stained and topcoated before my cabinets were installed, to the fact that they couldn't get the color right the first three times.

I don't know if this is the same guy or not but this really takes the cake. How could you ever expect to get paid to do this even if you were the lowest price around? More like you should be talking to a lawyer because I don't think they are going to pay you. And lucky if they don't sue you for your pathetic work skills. I don't see how you could do such a crappy, sloppy job. Beyond hack. If they were blind, and I mean cannot see anything, this wouldn't be acceptable. Un f'n believable.

I offered to refinish. But at my normal rate. This is far from my problem. Baseboard would look like ka ka

Barely. It's a Euro kitchen. Suppose to have a clean look.

My part of the job has been over since mid December. The floor has been an ongoing issue. They couldn't get it dark enough. Idiots I say. You don't put the topcoat on if the stain is wrong. You put another coat of stain on. Of course you could do a shaded poly coat to help darken the color. Without slobbering it all over the cabinets, of course.

I hope you know I wasn't serious. Just thinking of that thread a while back of Pin's floor.

If they top coated it before it was the right color than I guess you can pretty much guarantee they didn't know what they were doing.
Yes, you winked

They tried 4 times, what do you think.....

No. This was a low budget job. Especially for me.

I do agree with the premise. But I think they are trying to bleed him dry.

Cedar Shake was designed to be put over 1 x 5 stock spaced 3-4". You weren't suppose to have a plywood deck. That's the correct way to do it. But I'm sure with modern construction and code you can't do that for a home, maybe an outbuilding.
