This is Turtle.
I have some wet carpet in a house put there by a tree limb that went through the
roof and it was raining. It flooded 3 rooms and a
hall way and we are talking wet and not just damp. I called State Farm Insurance
company and their adjuster came out and looked at
it and said that they did not replace carpet anymore when a house floods. He
told me that the only thing they would do is send in
their carpet man / not my carpet man and have him remove the carpet and replace
the pad and dry the carpet and lay the old carpet
back down. I told him the carpet has been wet for close to a week waiting on you
to look at it and the carpet will not fit back
right and have wrinkles in it after you relay it. He allowed $350.00 for their
man to clean and remove the pad and said that all we
will do. I just had all the carpet replaced and run his ass out of my Rent
house. To recarpet the area was $1,750.00 , fix the roof
, replace one rafter replace the insulation in attic of the area, replace
ceilitex ceiling , and shingles was $1,400.00. That come
to $3,150.00 and i have $250.00 deductiable with exact replacement cost of items
in the home. The cost after deductiable would be
$2,900.00 and they was so nice to just send me $1,200.00. I call about the roof
not being fully paid and they said their roof
repairman could have done it much cheaper than $1,400.00. I pay more than $12k a
year in premiums and been with them for 20 or more
years and they will be getting the ax this year but I have some questions here.
1) If you relay Carpet after it has been wet for a week. Will it cause it to
wrinkle up? I have seen some relayed on a friend
house like this and it did not fit back right and did wrinkled up in about 3
months. This is where my thoughts are coming from.
2) These State Farm hands that dry and clean the carpet really get all the
mole, bugs, whatever out of this carpet ?
3) Is this a good thing to do by relaying the 5 year old carpet on new pad?
4) What is your thoughts on relaying wet carpet ?
