A most unfortunate flooring failure!

#35
I understand where you're coming from. It can add enough cost to lose a job if price is the only consideration. Having worked for Ardex, an installer and now as a self employed testing technician, I have always contended there needs to be more communicaiton between installers and GCs during the bidding process.

I have only seen a few specs that didn't require testing, so the GC needs to inform ALL flooring bidders that the cost needs to be included. However, I have personally never seen a bid invitation stating that. I always had to call to inquire. Bet a lot of installers just let it go, then try to get the change order later after things are underway.

To me when everyone doesn't face the issue head on, it's like trying to ignore the elephant in your living room.
