Unlucky Kitchen Remodeling Experiences

New cabinets are chipping paint one month after installation. Contractor says it is not his fault and wants me to pay more money to have cupboard doors redone. Furthermore, the contractor tore one large hole and a small hole in the brand new linoleum. Of course, he denied having done it. He continues to tell [...]

I had the contractor install counter tops and ceramic floor. He installed the floor and worked around the refrigerator and did not replace the tile under that appliance.
