We built a house 12 months ago and we are completing our 12 month final
punchlist for the builder. One of the issues I am having is with the
kitchen linoleum floor. It is an Armstrong floor, but just the basic
builder grade. The floor is dented in a few places, has a few cuts and
is generally, I think, wearing way to early. The cuts are not from
anything in particular like moving items across or dropping things,
just small 1/4" or so slits. Maybe 3 or 4 in a 150+sqft kitchen. I
know this again is just basic grade, but do you think this is a builder
warrantable item? In a casual conversation with the "warrantly clerk"
she doesn't think the builder will do anything for us. I know we
should have upgraded, but I would think we would get more than a year
of basic wear & tear out of the linoleum. I would even pay for the
difference to do an upgrade floor. The wife think we got what we paid
for and to leave it alone.
What do you think?
