The Road to More Door
The carpenter rang me yesterday. Apparently Mr. Landlord was trying to get hold of him with the wrong cell number, but finally emailed. We discussed the door, which came from the door company with 0% matching, was installed correctly (I saw it), then proceeded to sag mightily.
Me: The man from the door company came here and looked at it. He creeped me out.
Him: After the way I was treated when I went there (when ordering the door) I told Mr. Landlord he needed to deal with them himself.
Me: Are there other local door companies?
Him: Yes; the one I usually work with was $20 over the bid of this one. This door (which cost over $500*) was out of square and is a POS. It's probably that the hinge screws (the door and frame were built by the door company) were stripped or something.
He's coming out on Tuesday to address the issue, which is not of his making.
* You'd think a stupid door, which is not exactly a difficult thing to build, would A) cost less than that, and B) should actually work correctly.
