My Girlfriend and I just bought a house together. 1st thing we want is to finish was the basment. We saw the Owens BFS in the mail, and thought it couldn't hurt to learn more about it. I wished I would of did my homework.
The very nice Saleperson came over around 6 'clock. Looked at the basement, sketched it, they we watched 30 minute video while he was estimating a price for the basement. we had 450 sq ft, and about a 186 sq ft that was just getting the drop ceiling. His initial price was $38,000. I was stunned, but liked the product overall, since mold thing scared the hell out of us.
Then he gave us the credit for the showcase special which dropped it to 32,000. My girlfriend said I would be comfortable if this was below 30,000. He called his boss "MR. Wilson" (probably his buddy) at 10:00PM!!! Now of course he came back with 29,999.
You will be astonished..we signed!!!!!!!! That night I did my homework online"This Site" and woke my Girlfriend at midnight to cancel the check.
I was going to pay like 55 sq ft. Yes I could actually built an addition with this money. The Basement now is the least priority to get finished, since he scared the girlgriend into not using Drywall. I guess they did one thing right!
NEVER sign , where they want you to sign right then and there!!! Product should always sell it self. Good luck out there people who want your hard earned cash. I could of been paying for the basement for 20 years. What was I thinking.
