Ok so i got a new roof and gutters. I got an invoice 2 to 3 weeks after saying i owe $6,662 I sent them a money order for $6,670. A month after that
Did the roofer file a supplement with the insurance company? Did they have something in their contract about supplements?
I will call and ask. What i do not understand is job was completed i was invoiced paid the invoice then received a new one a month after 1st invoice was paid. Can they turn in a supplement 2 months after the job is completed? I emailed state farm to ask if one was filed.
Yes you can file a supplement later on after a claim is closed.
Alternatively your roofer could have filed a supplement right away but it took State Farm a while to process it. Sometimes the insurance company will send a depreciation check and then a third check which covers the supplement at a later time. I usually let my customers know what supplements I file with their insurance carrier so that when they get the money they know it is owed to us. Even if your roofing company did not let you know they filed a supplement it was most likely paid by the insurance company because your roofer sent them the appropriate paperwork and photos to justify the bill.
Does contractor should have that in contract in written ?
Was your agreement for a set amount or was it for whatever the insurance paid? If the former and there wasn’t any additional out of scope work, you don’t owe any more. If the latter and a supplement was paid, you owe the money.
Damn it Authentic! You’re using former and latter verbiage with roofers. You made me have to think and it’s after hours!
Tileman, the way I see it, if they can’t follow my paragraph, they’ll never figure out how to get paid correctly.
I agree but I’m more worried about ME following it after a drink or two.
