Brand new home and sharp tack strips
We did a " walk-through" on our brand new house yesterday and we re scheduled to settle next Wednesday. We have carpet in the family room and hardwood in the kitchen. We stepped on sharp tack strips where the carpet and hardwood meet. We also felt some on the stairs and by the walk-out basement door. Our Realtor and the builder's Rep keep saying its normal-and that he's just going to hammer the sharp strips down...Im very bothered by this-because I'm afraid hammering the strips down could not fix the real issue and could wear our carpet. I asked the builder if they can do install a wood transition where carpet and hardwood meet and they refuse to do it saying--its installed properly and that they re just hammering it down...If they hammer it down, is it guarantee that the strips wont poke through the carpet in the future?
Anybody has any idea on how to deal with this?
