theres a lot of claims from a huge storm last December. I dropped off information at a residential residence and was called to do an inspection. I install tarps and he files a claim. I told him insurance would cover the tarp 100%, yada yada yada. he agrees if I help with the adjuster meeting I get to do the work. long story short he got approved.He wanted to do the interior painting, and he was going to service the garage door with the acv money and pocket the rest. thats his choice and its legal if he doesn’t want the depreciation on the garage. so I end up doing a supplement for him and because there were so many damages that needed to be addressed. supplement is approved for over $10,000.00 along with general contractors O&P that around $3,200.00 for the roof alone. the money for the tarps I installed also included.
keep in mind, Out of the $10,000.00 theres 4 downspouts included on our contract. Im the General Contractor what is this guy thinking. I have a contract that includes a mechanics lien on your house and you are going to keep the overhead and profit on the jobs I did the work for?
This is 100% bullshit. He called me. His roof was on 1 day after the shingles were on his roof and that is because the weather. his roof was an emergency and I got him on schedule over the owners roofs and everyone else. No hes fucking me over. (sorry for the language
Im a newby. only 4 months. Is there anything I can do? This has to be illegal right? policy holders are not aloud to pocket the money the insurance pays RCV to the homeowner. the homeowner pays his deductible and all of this money is paid to the gereral contractor the homeowner has a contract with.
He was greatful the whole time told the owner how much he appreciated me and how good I was to him. They both literally had a hand on each of my shoulders bragging about me to each other. now this? I still cant believe this guys doing this.
What is the law in Missouri? Can the homeowner get away with this legally. Contractors cant do anything in this situation? Hes keeping my o&p and its not right.
