Claim for wind damage was approved for partial repair, we inspected it, realized shingles were discontinued and got the entire roof approved. Now the homeowner called to let me know they found someone that would do it for $6,000 less and is going with them. They signed a contract at the beginning of everything saying that they would work with us if we got it approved, but is now saying that he thought the doc was so we could talk to the insurance company with his permission, that that is how he understood it.
So now I just want to get some compensation for all my work, this is what i listed in the invoice:
roof claim process-time wasted
Tarping various areas of the roof to prevent leaks before the storm
Meeting with adjuster and providing new shingle necesary for color comparison- in the rain
Climbing up the roof and taking pictures in multiple occasions to send to insurance claims dept
Sending shingle to lab to be analized
Calling/ dealing with the lab to get shingle processed
Calling/emailing adjusters/claims dept as needed in the day/night
Working up Xactimate estimate requested by adjuster-money and time spent
Satelite measurements of roof report-money spent
Getting claim approved for the total roof
Time and effort spent in the entire process
How much should I charge them? Unfortunately, in the contract they signed it does not state an amount due to me if contract is broken.
Any and all feedback is appreciated! this has never happened to me.
