Some advice for having work done in your house!!
Hopefully a way to get it back sooner, from a woman that has been without for 4+ months!!
GO WITH AS LITTLE CONTRACTORS AS POSSIBLE!!
If you can use one, USE ONE!!
I can tell you, our contractor has already requested to go with one contractor on his own home (fire issue)!! Uh-hummm, he learned from me, THANK GOD!!!
If I could have learned this from someone before me, I would've been thankful!!
It's different when your contracting to "build" your own home, from when you are repairing your own home!!
For some reason, everyone thinks you'll be ok, NO MATTER how long it's been, that you have been without! Because, your not out of a home, they honestly figure your ok!!
Lettme tell you.......being without a kitchen for over 4 MONTHS is INSANE!!!!!!!!! TOTALLY INSANE!!
We have remodelled a kitchen and we were without it for just under 3 months and that was CRAZY INSANE, BUT THIS IS WORSE!!
Having a family, having one person, in a home without a kitchen is CRAZY! Then you add in the time.....then you add in the missed bed times, the missed dinners, the half-assed washed dishes, the NO KITCHEN thing and it's totally INSANE!!
Think about purchasing a home without a kitchen....you wouldn't even do it!!! Because it's STUPID!!
I was so close to having my house back, including my kitchen!! But STUPID me decided we needed a dishwasher to match!!
God has blessed my family every step of the way, from the moment I heard "MOM, FIRE"!
My entire family walked out fine and was able to grab clothes and able to grab different shoes and NONE of my photos were ruined beyond recognition! Now some of them were burned and my heart is heavy and will never be the same, none the less, GOD has blessed us every step of the way!
Nason's, however has messed us up!! Maybe they've saved me money!! But they messed us up!! I paid cash for my appliances.......and I didn't make Nason's wait for my insurance....I'll wait for my insurance!! WRONG, WRONG, WRONG......wait for your insurance!! Let them pay what they would've and make the appliance company wait for your insurance!!! Order early and make them wait!! I ordered early and paid......should've made them wait for the insurance to pay......then we would have received all 4 appliances at the same time and they would have been installed by the SAME , only ONE Contractor, I hired in the beginning!!
]Needless to say, I am going to get my money back for my dishwasher tomorrow and at that time I will also fight the "installation" charge........I guess installation and delivery are the same thing these days!! Because this Nason's just dropped and I paid for installation and guess who did the installation???
OH YEA, your right............ME the HOMEOWNER!!
GO WITH ONE CONTRACTOR, WALLS, FLOOR, APPLIANCES, PAINT, INSTALLATION, CARRY AWAY....ALL OF IT, GO WITH ONE CONTRACTOR, INSIST ON IT!!!!!!
