I have been following up on the apartments manager about the tile damage on the second floor hallway and up to now he hasn't sent anybody to fix it. The crack is starting to get bigger and to think some of our fellow second floor neighbors are quite heavy footed. Me and hubs refer to them as "stompers" because they seem to be stomping around whenever they walk by the hallway. Sometimes baby even wakes up when they pass by. Couple of times I almost yell out to tell them to walk gently and stop stomping around.

Last time we talked to the in-house manager he mentioned that the ceiling underneath the cracked walkway has already started to rot. It's wood so with the rains previously, the wood has been soaked and wearing off. They said the owners for this apartment complex are so cheap and very tight with money therefore not wanting to fix the problem. They better do something or else not only the hall renovation will eat up their precious money, so as the water damage repair service austin.

Only if they paid attention to our appeals then they definitely will save from water damage repair costs austin. All we were asking as an immediate action was to overlay a thick plywood to sustain and distribute the weight, this way further cracking can be avoided. Then being so negligent will end up with a higher water damage cost austin compared to just a regular repair. Our biggest concern is our safety and as much as we want to vacate this unit it's not that easy to move things out and settle in again in another unit. We're just hoping the hall can hold on til we're out of here for good with our own house.

    That's not safe for anybody, and the landlord could be sued for negligence.
