The insurance adjuster left just a little bit ago, and it was easy-peazy! I will have new carpet soon! I don't have a figure yet, but it looks like they will replace with like value. I'll get the information and a figure in about a week. They are also looking into the trouble with the water heater that was the cause of the whole mess. I don't know if that means a possible replacement or just what. Although it has been repaired and the plumber feels it is still a good heater, I'm glad they are considering all aspects of this. If it turns out to be a faulty heater, I'd certainly rather replace it and avoid a repeat of this!
I'm going to go ahead and look at carpet at the store this weekend. I can start making choices, and have less time out when I have the figure to work with. I also want to look at replacement for the living room. I don't know if I will do it now or later, but I want to begin considering. It is time to replace it, as well.
The adjuster said that the ceramic tiles in the kitchen and laundry room look good at this time. He said that problems might pop up much later, however, and to let him know if they do, because the claim will remain open for an extended period to be sure I'm OK. Wow! I love it when things go so well.
