We had our linoleum laid, and the job was horribly done! There were a ton of bubbles and wrinkles. I was not happy!
We called the store that installed it and had them come take a look at it. They decided that it needed to be redone. I guess that's what happens when you try to cut corners. They used an installer that has never done a job this big. He is a carpet installer and they had him do the kitchen since he was already here doing the carpet in our basement. They didn't want to pay their regular installer to come to Orangeville as well. Oops!Round two:
Most of the bubbles were on the seams of the new sub floor. Since it wasn't sealed properly, the bubbles happened. The new installer cut the linoleum on the seams and sealed it. It made me so mad to watch him cut up my new linoleum!
He came back the next day and laid they new linoleum. He said it would work this time and if there were any problems to call him and he would come fix it. It turned out great. The only thing I would change is the new linoleum. It was all they had that was closest to what I picked out before. Since we bought a remnant the first time around, they couldn't get it anymore. The new linoleum is smaller squares. I prefer the bigger tile look, but it is done now. At least it is laid properly!
