Can they redecorate at our expense?
At our fault, we flooded the apt downstairs. We are paying to have the servpro guys come dry it all out, paying for ceiling replacement. Now they want carpeting replaced in three rooms (two bedrooms and a hall) at cost of $1600. I feel they are upgrading the carpet quality and taking advantage. Am I wrong? I want to be fair, repair damage, but not redectorate. I feel they should replace with similiat carpeting quality. At this point I am thinking of just teling them to take it to small claims court and let the judge decide on it all, then I'll pay whatever the judge says. Their current carpet is old and ratty.
