Hello Everyone. My 8000 sq ft roof and gutters had hail damage. The roofing company said they would replace the roof for the RCV as long as my insurance company agreed to totally replace the roof and gutters which the insurance company agreed to. I signed a contract stating the sum to be paid was the “Insurance Proceeds RCV.” When my home was damaged, the hail damaged my roof, gutters and my stucco columns. I turned the columns in at a different time than the roof and gutters but they were all three under the same claim number. At the time the roofing contractor signed the contract, he did not know the claim number, the name of the insurance company, nor the amount the insurance company was allowing. The contractor had not seen a copy of the insurance claim. Now the roofing contractor says they have a right to collect the RCV for the roof, the gutters and the columns just for replacing the roof and the gutters because the contract said Insurance Proceeds RCV. Is this industry standard to collect for work not completed. I can understand had the contractor seen the insurance claim and if they had told me you are going to need to come up with additional funds or allow us to use the RCV from the roof, the gutters AND the columns. They did not.
To boot, the roofing contractor did not do a good job and I’ve had two other roofers say the entire roof needs to be replaced. I’m heart sick and feel backed into a corner big time.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
