These are the adventures of first-time home owners, who happened to make the fortuitous acquaintance of some outstanding folks at IGK Enterprises Inc.

This blog is a shrine dedicated to their outstanding quality of work and professionalism.
Next step...The Fan Club...but I might be getting ahead of myself here, so lets start from the beginning:

Who or what is IGK Enterprises Inc.???
Well, they claim to be "South Florida's Best, Most Reliable Remodeling Company" with your best interest at heart. They are committed to the fulfillment of your home improvement needs, and have been in the business for 10 years providing their customers with high quality work.

It is this "high quality work" in mind that this blog is here to showcase.
The Acquaintance is Made

So we wanted to install some Screen Doors, "No problem," said the owner of IGK (whom happened to be our salesperson as well), "It 'll take us 2 weeks to finish after we order the doors. "

"But wait, " I said, " We also need to replace the Soffits & Fascia boards, plus we'll need some stuccoing done for the columns and walls outside the hosuse."

"Yup, no problem, it will still take 2 weeks. By the way, are you planning to sell the house, I'm planning to buy coz I want to flip it." shot back IGK's owner.

"Err, no, we're living in it, not going to sell any time soon, " I replied. At this stage I was figuring "well, I could throw in a Koi pond a new roof and a tennis court, and he would still tell me it would be 2 weeks to finish...these guys are a real good."

The contarct was signed: 50% now, and the other 50% at the time of deleivery of the doors.

Mind you, we were stupid. We gave the whole kit and kaboodle even before the work was finished, and half of it even before the work began. Go figure. And you wonder how some people still have the nerve to complain.

But hey, these guys are trustworthy right? Why else would we end up giving everything up front??? Can we say...DUMBASS???!!!
Veni, Vidi, Vici

The doors came, saw the house, and conquered a nice corner to gather dust.

It was at the house for a few weeks acculmating mass, before IGK relized they had do some work.

What tipped them off?

Our phone calls every other day, then everyday then everyday on the hour. I guess they got annoyed that we disturbed their routine, but come on, the doors were quickly going out of style the longer we waited.
