The problem resulting from hardwood floor installation have not been fixed after paid in Full and we couldn't use half the house for a long time.
We employed Jacob Channel Painting Inc. to remove the carpet and install 1300-square feet new hardwood floor in our new house. The project started in late December in 2013 and ended the first week of January 2014. Even though there were multiple spots that the wood had not been securely glued down to the concrete and caused unleveled flooring, we paid ***** ******* in full on Jan 6 based on his promises to come back and fix them really soon. And after several contacts reminding this unresolved issue, his team came back on Thursday Feb 13th to fix other spots but failed due to lack of appropriate tools. Before they left, they said ***** would be in touch with us to schedule another date. However, he never got back to us or return our messages. On Feb 21th, losing faith in him, we contacted our general contractor who worked with ***** and he told us that ***** said he would be back in three weeks to fix the floor. We patiently waited another 3 weeks before we contacted our general contractor again. This time, ***** promised to drop by on the coming up weekend (March 15 & 16) to get everything done while no one at all showed up and no notification was made. Due to the unattached floor, we cannot any furniture in the room or live in there. So we still **** on an old mattress for 2 and a half months by now. In addition, the old carpet that should have been removed months ago (in December last year) still stuck in our carport at this moment.

Desired Settlement
Fix the floor, remove the left old carpet and reimburse estimated loss $100*2.5=$250 resulting from we couldn't use the Master Bedroom and Half living room for 2.5 months.

Final Consumer Response
In the beginning of April, with the help (or push) from another contractor (who helped us remodel the bathroom and also knew him), the company finally contacted me and resolved the problem.
