I've had about 3 contractors bail out on this job because of the complexity of the corners, angles, and the just overall shape of the home.
I was then referred by a friend Jodi couple of floors below mine to use Alliance. I went to their shop, found the laminate flooring I wanted, and they recommended me to use the QuietMax underlay which meets my building code.
They were even professional enough to have this form in which they will warrant your floors if the proper procedures were done. 1. Ripped up the carpet, then they measured temperature, and leveling. 2. Then used concrete or some sort of filling to fill up so that floor was straight and even. 3. They waited for it to dry for about 2-3 days, then started the laminate flooring.
They finished in less than 2 days, let me inspect it, then cleaned up. It was flawless, I even stepped on every single area of the laminate flooring so that it doesn't "squish" downwards and it was hard like hardwood floor which is exactly what I wanted.
Although during this process, one of their workers scratched up my washer as they needed to move it out of the way (I take half the fault). I explained to the owner Lehel the situation, and his worker did admit it (which I appreciate the honesty a lot, you don't get this often) and they were going to pay for it to get it fixed. Since they aren't specialized in this, and don't want to do a poor job in fixing the scratch, they asked me to hire someone and they will pay for it which Lehel sent me a cheque 3 business days later.
So these guys are not only great workers, but honest business owners as well. They really do take care, and one of the most important thing is that they answer their phones. Even though I am probably a nightmare client, and call them like 5 times a day wondering about status, they were always patient with me and worked with me through this process.
I just have to say, it was overall a great experience and will definitely recommend people to them without hesitation.
