I was on the phone with my Mom last night, talking about life, the house, and all that jazz... and she brought up a good suggestion, she said that her sub floors under her hardwood were nailed in rather than screwed in. I've seen enough HGTV to know that nailing in sub floors under hardwood is just not a good idea, her floor squeaks so bad as well as all of her neighbors, the nails pop just like they do in the dry wall, causing squeaks! This isn't the flooring company's responsibility too, and if you have a finished basement, it's going to be EXTREMELY hard to make any fixes to your squeaky floors unless you rip up your ceilings!
I'm going to talk to my PM this week and ask if the sub floors will be screwed in, if he says no, I will request they be screwed in, hell I would pay extra for that!
On another note, I met my neighbor directly beside me, he is a very nice guy, down to earth, built his dream home with his wife. He asked me what moving company we were using, I said none because we have no furniture! LOL... But he said stay as far away from Two Men and a Truck as you can. He was so distraught over the situation, and I know for my future neighbor Darla, I said that I saw them moving in and to maybe get a quote from them, but after hearing his story, I wouldn't go near them! They put holes in his walls, ripped up trim, damaged furniture and floors and they refuse to fix it!!! My parents used Always Moving Company and were very pleased. So just a warning in case you are in the Pittsburgh Area and need a mover! I know everyone's experiences can vary but I wouldn't want to take a chance at getting the same crew and get holes in my brand new walls!
On a positive note, I think we are going to go ahead and make an appointment with Ethan Allen to buy our morning room set. Pics to follow! Happy building everyone!
