Default Cardel 30 day

I had my 30 day items completed yesterday and today and I do have to say that I am extreamly happy and pleased with the service and quality of cardel and all the trades. It has changed my mind about them and am now really pleased and happy with the home. I would recommend them to anyone. I guess I was just upset before with the issues we had but now all has been resolved. Time for a beer

Well they are going to give me $1500 to settle.. They did not want to replace it and did not want to epoxy it either. So it was a choice between 1500 and grinding it down and sealing it so I took the cash and I did not want it grinded and sealed

Never take cash from a builder to solve an issue. They only give you cash when they know they will lose in a Tarion inspection.

Now they are off the hook

Get an estimate from a concrete refinishing contrator on how much it will cost to fix, it will be way more that $1500.

I'd keep the cash. While the floor is rougher than most, it is structurally sound. A few rocks may pop out but that happens anyway.

That is what they told me. I might paint the floor too to try to seel it a bit.

suggest paint is not best choice - it will peel off with salty water

a clear concrete sealer would be better - anything that stops if from absorbing water
