I have not heard good things about Samsung appliances in general.The factory warranty looks to be for only a year.
They were all discounted for Black Friday and the cost of the warranty was based on that price. The deals were pretty good; e.g., $1K 5.8 cu. ft. gas range for 40% off, $1,700 refrigerator for 41% off.
It's on the refrigerator, dishwasher, and range. I know a lot of the newer models have electronics issues and those typically cost hundreds of dollars to fix. I will kick myself if I cancel the warranties and run into an expensive issue in a few years.
I bought a full suite of SS kitchen appliances on Friday. Gas range, microwave, dishwasher and refrigerator. The sales guy at HD talked me into getting extended warranties on the fridge, range and dishwasher, which I agreed to. The total cost for the 5-year extended warranties was around $300. What's the consensus on these? Waste of money? I've always felt that way but now I'm questioning it. The appliances are Whirlpool and reliability appears to be pretty good.
I've been to Penrose a few times. Nice atmosphere, good dranks.I miss visiting the UES chick who I shagged on and off for years.
There are some dark stains on the hardwood floors in the dining room. I don't know why it took me so long to think about it, but they are probably from dog/cat piss. I think this also explains the musty smell when you walk in, although I chalked that up to the home being uninhabited for some time. We will be sanding and refinishing the floors and I'll treat with hydrogen peroxide beforehand. Hopefully the stains come out and the smell is contained. This better work...
Very nice. I'm working Monday through Wednesday and then enjoying a long weekend.
Any general thoughts on Great Danes, aside from the obvious issues with large breeds?
Encapsulation may be the way to go, but the tape is pretty nasty. Moldy, fraying. I'd rather have it removed but still considering encapsulation. Based on what I've found online, removal of tape on ductwork shouldn't be overly expensive. If we are talking $1-2K I may bite the bullet simply to allay my neurotic fears. Thanks for the opinions, guys. And I did think about the reporting/disclosure issues Piob. Good point.
I'm growing more concerned with the probable asbestos tape on the ductwork joints. There's at least 30 strips of tape (4 inches wide I believe) throughout the ducts that are visible in the basement. Quite a few strips are frayed and moldy. Some of the ductwork is low enough that it could be bumped into if one is careless. The amount of tape has me leaning against a DIY approach. Has anyone priced out an abatement on this kind of asbestos?
