Craftech has been a member of Angie’s list for a few years now.  We have maintained and A rating during that time.  They have recently changed their membership, they now offer a free basic membership to everyone.  Now you can leave a review for us using this link:  order Topiramate pills my.angieslist.com/angieslist/Review/4293476 even if you are not a member.

The company announced back in March that they would be converting their basic paid membership to a free membership starting in June saving homeowners $10 annually, which they hope will increase their traffic dramatically.  This also means good things for companies like ours that relies on word of mouth.  With any homeowner who visits the site being able to see our reviews this increases our chances to be hired based on the good things past clients have written like this review from earlier this year:

Misoprostol from mexico “Craftech was excellent.
Craftech was recommended to me by a plasterer, who complained that many demo companies left a mess for him to deal with, but said that Craftech always did a great job, making his follow-on plastering work that much easier.
Craftech responded to my request for a quote promptly and got me a thorough detailed quote within a day or two. This was much, much more responsive than other demo companies that I contacted.
Craftech came on time, with a large crew of 5, and got the work done in less than 1/2 of the time that they originally estimated (< 1 day, instead of 2 days scheduled). They worked hard and methodically.  They took care to limit the effect of their demo work, which was orderly and neat.
Craftech adjusted the final bill down from the original quote, since the scope of the water damage proved to be less than they had originally estimated. The final bill was about 75% of the original estimate!”

Is Laminate flooring a good idea?

By / Learn, Water / Comments Off on Is Laminate flooring a good idea?

Laminate flooring while it may be a fraction of the price of wood and can look good aesthetically has a few flaws.  Laminate is made up of wood fibers not solid pieces of wood, therefore it acts more like cardboard when it gets wet. If our crew arrives at a site where a laminate floor has been affected by water, the first step would be to remove the floor, whereas if we were to walk into a home where hardwoods were affected we would attempt to dry it before considering removal.   One in 55 homeowners will have a loss from water damage or freezing every year, so if you are thinking that will not happen to me know that you have a 1 in 55 chance every year of having some form of water damage.

 

Laminate is the flooring of choice by many DIY homeowners because of the ease of installation but, if you are looking for durability and long lasting flooring, hardwoods would be the smarter choice.  Once laminate wears through you will have to replace the whole floor, whereas if you install hardwoods they can be refinished.

This photo is from a home that had a pipe break on the main level and made it’s way to a basement where there was laminate.  As you can see the laminate swelled around the edges and that damage is irreversible.  We had to remove the laminate whereas; the hardwoods on the main level were able to be dried.
