    Agreed, because you need to search the Lic. # to find them.

    Could be an employee.

    Here’s the progress on our kitchen, we should be cooking again tonight. My wife wanted this copper sink and had to order the matching drain and it won’t be here until Friday so no running water yet(off at angle stops)...

    So the copper drain piece finally showed up and my contractor came by and installed the disposal and air gap and disposal switch. We now have a fully functioning kitchen again. Here’s a few pictures of the floor that we need to patch. We got 1 estimate so far and it was like $5300!!! I know it’s not going to be quick and easy but we got the whole floor done for $4500? Does that seem outrageous? We do, however, want to sand and stain it a bit darker and the quote reflected it. Also add hardwood down the small hallway.

    If you want the flooring fixed where that straight line disappears, it is very time consuming. You want to find the guy that is really good at that, faster. And it might be a different contractor to refinish.

    Floors are all repaired, contractor came back and installed new baseboard and pendant lights over the island. We went darker on the finish for the floors, antique walnut I think.

    Looks really good! Congrats. What kind of floor did you put in? Hardwood? Vinyl? Pergo?
