@KILZ FILLZThis is what I do day in and day out. Was the guy that came and was under your sink with you from the insurance company or was he from a restoration company?

He was from the plumbing company I hired to do the leak detection. Flood mitigation folk are going to subcontract the demo, just waiting on the final asbestos and lead test results. Flood mitigation put me in contact with a restoration company that I am working with for a separate flood claim in the hallway bathroom... going to request that same restoration co and project Mgr get assigned to the kitchen flood claim. 
 

just bought this place in nov .... lol good times.

Good man. Keep these independent adjusters and in house insurance company claim adjusters away from you. They will try to get you to cash out for about 50% of what the job costs to fix, leaving the home owner on stuck. One of my buddies mom was going through this months ago. The insurance company cut her a check for 6000 and told her good luck. I told her to mail that shit back and tell them no thanks. I ended up getting her $20,000 for her repairs. She didnt even use me as her contractor. Fucking bitch.

@mr.yuck that sounds pretty much exactly like what’s going on in my hallway bath. Fucker mailed me a check for $5200 to work out with my mortgage co before they even received an estimate from the restoration co. Project Mgr for restoration co submitted an estimate for $20k and insurance rejected it. 
 

should I mail back that $5200 check? I’m sitting on it for now until this kitchen issue is fleshed out

 

both claims will have some overlap because they involve the laminate flooring

Yeah hang onto the check. Whats happening right now is the restoration company over scoped something and it could be as little as $20 to detach and reset your towel bars. The insurance companies are the fucking worst and they are the major hold up on your repairs. Dig in man. Shit can get fucked up and if they tear your house up, it could be months before anyone shows up to do repairs.

The disparity is that the laminate floors run through out the whole home and all of it that was in the bathroom was water damaged and tossed. now neither the contractor or insurance can find a match (brilliant move by the flooring companies to change their product every few months). You said this is your day to day so I’m sure you know how the rest of this story goes. 
 

so I’m stuck between an insurance company who wants to pay the minimum and a contractor who wants the job to be the maximum. If I can get all new floors I’m fucking down with that but I would also be cool with getting tile in that bathroom and being done with it 
 

Now that the kitchen floors are fucked too, I’m gonna slow play the bathroom for a bit and see what happens. 
 

ideally - tile in bathroom, tile in kitchen, carpet in living room, leave existing laminate in bedrooms and closets.
