The unexpected never happens, or does it? My friend decided to undertake a simple project. Repaint the living room, hallway and three bedrooms, along with, new carpeting and two new sofas. How hard could it be? The local home improvement store was offering free tear out and installation for any new carpet purchased. He figured, buy the furniture from the local furniture store on interest free credit and take advantage of the free tear out and installation from the local home improvement store. Sounds simple and easy, doesn’t it? Well here’s what happened.

When the local home improvement store came out to measure for the new carpeting, they never looked to see what was under the existing carpeting. Guess what, the house was built on a slab and there was asphalt tile underneath the existing carpeting. When they came out to install the new carpet, they discovered the asphalt tile and claimed it could have asbestos. They told him, he needed to have the tile removed before they could install the carpeting.

The problem was, the new sofas were scheduled to be delivered three days after the carpeting was to be installed. He had to take the sofas and put them in the POD he rented to hold all his other furniture.

The lesson learned is, we know what we know and we know what we don’t know. It’s what we don’t know that we don’t know that always seems to get us.

Petrolere Construction Services has more than 20 years experience in the home remodeling business. Yes, through the years, we also have learned the hard way.  However, we have always stood behind our work and will never compromise the quality of the job were doing.
