I'm house shopping and a house I looked at today had painted concrete
floors - I had never seen it before - this floor had lots of remaining small
holes where the tack strips were nailed to the floor - seems like they
should have been filled in or something - did they just do a sloppy job, or
is this the way it is? Thanks, experts!
Yea, it sounds like the carpet was bad so they took it up and did not
want to pay the price of replacing it so they took the cheapest route
possible. Add the cost of new flooring to the cost of the house before
considering it. They did not do a good job and the paint will likely start
flaking off the week you move in.
I agree - if they didn't want the cost of replacing the carpet, and they
didn't bother filling the tack holes, then obviously it was a quicky, cheap
job. You don't use high quality paint or prepare the surface correctly when
doing a quicky, cheap job. Tell them what you think about that with your
wallet, when you deduct it from your offer.
