:> No one ever came to look at it. They rejected the job sight unseen.
: that's kinda fucked up
I wish he would post a .jpg anyway, I re-read his explanation twice about
why there could be a 1/8" problem and still don't get it.
With the above post, he must of told the sales drone at Sears that there
could be a problem installing it and they wrote it on the ticket, which is
how/why the installer rejected the job. Like others said, should of kept
your mouth shut. At least they would of came out and you could of did an
eye-to-eye with them.
Like others have also said, those guys just get a flat rate from businesses
like Sears so anything more than a unbolt and rebolt, they are going to flip
a coin to take on the job or not. If he explained to sears anything like
what he's been posting about the problem, no wonder they were scared off.
One thing I get the feeling about with all of this is that you are expecting
perfection with the install and I really doubt that is going to happen. Tile
cutting/replacing, cabinet moving, that is all beyond the scope of just
replacing the hood. I did my own kitchen remodel a couple years ago,
everything from the dishwasher to overhead microwave and can tell you first
hand, nothing is going to be moved 1/8" in any direction without getting
into a major overhaul.
Again since I can't picture the problem you think there is, if you are
worried about having a gap with the new hood or exposed tile where none was
before, deal with it, there is going to be a gap or exposed tile.
