u r correct, that's exactly how they do the carpet, plactic and interior.
my concern IF u are planning to keep this unit is...
what's going on UNDER the flooring ?
as in the insulation and frame area...if it's still wet that needs to be addressed.
again the original subfloor is osb and once wet SWELLS, even after drying.
given the purchase price for this unit vs the typical price for 16s...
it is worth it to have the unit properly inspected and repaired.
take it to j/c and let them do ALL of the critical work....
labor rates are 20% off in the winter months, but i wouuld not wait till december on this.
should YOU decide a bigger unit is needed, the resale of THIS one will be easier...
if it's properly repaired.
and why have u not posted any pictures yet?
we love looking at other peoples messes!
all of the true things that i am about to tell you are shameless lies. l.b.j.
we are here on earth to fart around. don't let anybody tell you any different. k.v.
