Overwhelmed With Repairs
When we chose this house, we assumed that there were certain small jobs (in addition to a few big ones) that needed to be done. One of these was having the tile floor professionally cleaned and re-sealed. I was told by a friend with some knowledge of this process that it would cost at least $250., so was ready for an estimate in that general range. However, I got a $900. estimate for this job, which completely flummoxed me. Given the number of other, larger, and more crucial jobs (plumbing, electrical, etc.) that need to be done and the number of major purchases I must make (washer/dryer, air conditioner, flat screen t.v.) this is impossible. I'm not sure what to do at this point.
