£30,000 to fix the floor after sale, £150 to have got it right in the first place

Posted on: September 23, 2009

£30,000 is one estimate for just the labour, to perform a minimum economical fix. A proper fix would mean pulling out and replacing the joist flooring, which could likely cost 3-4x as much.

Charles Church – Is this attention to detail, is this the highest specification, is this a luxury executive home?

No, it’s Charles Church, fit the lowest specification floor (assuming it’s even fit for purpose), and fit it badly (so it’s definately not fit for purpose), then spend years arguing with the customer as to why Charles Church can’t/won’t/shouldn’t fix it.

Sounds like Charles Church to me, part of the Persimmon Group plc (they own Persimmon Homes, and their floors look the same to me to).
