I bid on a roofing job. I think I bid it really cheap. I only bid 40 off per sq and 45 on with an extra $ 280.00 for disposal and gas fee’s. Homeowner bought all materials. So we are talking $ 3000.00 on a 32 sq ft home. Here is the thing, some ins company’s around here hold part of your money until repairs are complete and shown. Their insurance company is holding $ 2500.00, however they had siding damage to and that they are not repairing. They also didn’t want their gutters replace and so we didn’t even bid it. Now a member of their family is asking why we didn’t replace the facia (I said because that is siding work, and why would we replace that if they didn’t want their gutters done). I said u seen our bid, if you wanted changes done before we started then you should have mentioned it. They now say they don’t think they will get their full $ 2500.00 from insurance holdings cause these repairs were not made and make it out to be our fault. Why would this be my fault. I already gave them a huge huge discount on the roofing job. Around here the average is 55 off and 65-70 on not including disposal fee’s. What do I do if they blame me for this and hold back part of my money? Some it look like a small claims thing? One more thing, when I gave them all the material lists, the husband went to pick them up before the price of shingles went up. I had the codes and everything wrote down. He picked up almost everything wrong except the tar paper. He picked up buckets of nails instead of nail gun nails, he picked up 3 tab shingles instead of heritage. He didn’t pick up his roof vents, valley, or boots (so we call them). I had to make special trips into town to pick up an exchange all this stuff but I’m still getting the shaft for not replacing the facia. What gives. I thought I was trying to be nice here but now I’m feeling taken advantage of. Any 3rd party view on this would b greatly appreciated.
We only have 9 sq to finish laying shingles on. It’s already torn off. We are only a 2 woman team.
I did draw up a contract. So I am protected in that area.
Oh one more thing, I’m not asking for compensation for the extra miles I had to travel for the exchange. I was just pointing out what I’ve done for them. I know it was a small loss on my part but wasn’t going to make a big deal about it and still don’t plan on it. Was just trying to tell the whole story is all.
