This is not a P&P type problem BUT I know I will get an honest opinion from forum members
Scenario: Fire damaged home. I represent the homeowner for their content claim. The insurance adjuster did a great job on the estimate for the dwelling repairs so I was not needed or so I thought. A Preferred Vendor for the Insurance Company began repairs without a signed contract from the homeowner ( to the extent of $70,000)....
The scope of work included REPLACEMENT of ALL metal siding and house wrap. When at the home last Wed the siding company was there and I was making small talk (homeowner was not there) when they stated they were only replacing 2 elevations of siding AND I noticed the house wrap had not been replaced.
Later at the homeowners rental home I pointed out that all the siding and house wrap had been paid for on the approved scope of work AND the check was already endorsed but not sent to mortgage company yet. The homeowners and I went to the home after our meeting and I showed them the old wrap was still on the home and only 4 strips of siding was left before the 2 elevations were completed. When rubbing my hand over the wrap my hand came back covered in soot. Thus the reason it was to be replaced.
Also, the incorrect front door was installed (a cheap metal exterior 6 panel door), homeowner told they could pick out $4000 worth of cabinets when they were reimbursed $9600 and R11 insulation was installed instead of R13 per code.
Now the GC is telling them it wasn't supposed to be replaced when they know better. Since the homeowners have not signed the contract they want to pay the GC for the correctly completed work and they want my company, that has done many fire rebuilds, to finish this off.
I have mixed feelings. This GC has lost trust of the homeowner. I was thinking about calling a meeting with the GC (without homeowner present) at the home and point out the deficiencies and let them "man-up" and make corrections. I'm afraid they will feel embarrassed and cash out on the project... Then I'm stuck rebuilding.
What would you do?????
Where you at P3+?
