We recently discovered a slow leak in our kitchen that resulted in mold and partial removal of cabinets, backsplash, countertops and walls.
Our insurance company sent out a contractor to do the removal of damaged items and mold. He also provided us with an estimate to replace everything.
The estimate from the contractor sent by the insurance company is considerably lower than 3 other estimates that I requested from other contractors. Our adjuster is not budging and will not give is any more money. She said we can hire a different contractor but the amount she gives us will remain the same.
We also have 4 kids and living in a house with no kitchen.
