After living at our condo in Fort York Blvd for almost 3 years, our parquet wood floors are visibly lifting. They started lifting in the summer of 2013, so that is actually 21/2yrs that they (un)lasted after Lanterra Developments finished with the building. This is the height of cheapness. A developer who cuts corners and installs the cheapest particle board or wood-type floors that won’t even last 3 years?! All we do with these floors is walk on them and clean them with Swifter products, and apparently it is too much for the poor things. I’m sure Lanterra and their contractors would like to put the blame on us and say we messed up their work. However, my answer to that is — there is no messing up a properly installed hardwood floor to the point of lifting. I would steer clear of investing in anything Lanterra Developments of Toronto puts their hands on, because it won’t last more than a couple of seasons. Already, our guest shower door had leaked at 4 months when we first moved in and the area around it required caulking and mending. As of Dec 2013 our heating/AC unit stopped working and we had no heat for 8 days. The $4,000 unit was replaced for free (building management took care of the logistics). Our condo faces the south by the Lakeshore, and gets a crap load of wind coming at it. You can hear our balcony metal and glass frame rattling like it’s going to tear off at certain times of the year. The noise is not sleep inducing. When we moved into the unit brand new nearly 3 years ago, even then upon close inspection, the fit and finish around mouldings of the doorways were only passable in some areas. Little did we know that was the least of our concerns. We also had to get use to a noisy heating/air-conditioning system in our bedroom that loudly clicks on and off. When we brought it to their attention they stated that that’s just how it is. It still wakes me up at times, and it an enduring reminder of what to NOT to expect from any new development we move into.
