Flood in friend's new kitchen
To make a long story short, a friend has been having a hard time with her kitchen installation. She went with a neighbor who builds custom kitchens.
From day one, she had trouble with everything. He couldn't create a basic cherry stain, until she finally had to settle.
He didn't plan for transition of molding from cabinet to wall, so she has to choose an awkward solution.
Her engineered wood floors came with black marks. Her sample did not show that this could be the case, So she kept ordering boxes to pick through until again finally she just picked the best of the worst.
Her granite is in and I don't think she has a problem with it.
They woke up on Tuesday to a flood in her kitchen. It seems the cabinet builder also did the plumbing and according to the insurance salesman, a joint was installed incorrectly.
Her whole basement, which housed storage is ruined and of course the floor. The sink cabinet is buckling.
They are beside themselves. I am not wanting to go into who is responsible, but want to understand the process of how you correct damage like this.
Does she have to have all the bottom cabinets redone? Do they have to be lifted when she puts in a new floor. Or is it now too heavy with the granite? Can she trim around and possible put in a different type floor.
Wondering what her options are.
