How big is the job? My father in law does commercial properties primarily from start to finish (medical centers mostly but he can tackle anything, re-built a house after Sandy). His guys work fast, extremely fast.

Just curious, if you hired a general contractor, why did you not use his sub? Also if all your doing is what you described, You dont need a general contractor and the ones that would take that on may not be who you want to do the job. Hire a flooring guy, a electrician, a garage door company, a painter and a spackler and you are done

If you are using really not engineered wood floor the longer it sits in the home before installation the better and not in the basement or garage.
Open up the boxes. If you have room spread out the wood(preferably in the room its being installed)this will help the wood dry to the home and prevent warping and bulges.

I'm putting 10mmm laminated hardwood floor and I was told to have them sitting in the house for about 3-4 days. Do you recommend putting the A/C on or doesnt matter?

always a good day to keep them in the environment they will be installed to acclimate. as far as the AC thing, if your house is always with AC then yes but if you only use ac when its hot, it does not matter. Engineered flooring is very stable. Also it is very very easy to install

Its more important with real wood over engineered wood but if they say 4 then that's what the designed it for. Real wood hold a lot od moisture and take a while to acclimate.

there's a bit more story than that, too long to tell, but pretty much he made the decision on hiring the electrician without us telling the detail of job to see how much they quote us for. I didn't say yes to anything yet, only the original agreement on painting few rooms, that's it.

He claimed he's an electrician, but why he's getting a quote from an electrician?

He started in the morning then left the premises, never finished and left me with this mess for me to clean up.
