Review: Contracts for structural correction, per [redacted]'s ([redacted]) calculations and recommendations were signed on July 3, 2014. This included, stair remodel, Window installation, a hole plug for the chimney (interior), and a detailed description from [redacted]. J&J Contractors stated they could get work completed by 8/1/2014. They didn't start work until 7/28 and the day they started they found items that were 'not ready' this included a wall not being demoed. Wall demolition was contracted to J&J Contractors to complete. 2 days later they contacted me to get the return vent removed from the furnace so they could cut for the posts, my HVAC contactor could not get there till 8/1. These items should have been researched prior to them coming into the house, *1 week lost time. Once they had completed their cutting, they found some plumbing work that needed to be completed, out of their control, understood. I contacted my plumber to have him complete the plumbing fix. While my plumber was working, J&J left the job site, instead of completing work on the stairs. *1 additional week lost time. Note: stairs were in a completely different part of the house and would not have disturbed any plumbing work being done in the basement. Plumber then cemented over area where he was completing work. This concrete work completed by the plumber was $500.00, and should have been J&J's responsibility since it was the area where they needed to pour a footing (I was only credited $300.00 for this).
Each time I would visit the site after 8/15, nothing additional was completed. September 1st came around and they finally started work on the stairs. Once the stairs were complete, the project manager asked me for payment, at this point the hole in the chimney was still not plugged. By the time the project was complete and J&J contractors was asking for payment, it was October 1st.
I told J&J contractors that I was on a tight deadline and that I wanted everything done as quick as possible and they said they could do it. I missed an additional 2 weeks after their 'project' was completed because my drywall, tile, ect. contractors were tied up at other jobs. I talked to other general contractors, they had stated this project should not have taken 2 months. If they would have done their research in the beginning and scoped out the job with what needed to be done (additional demo/prep work), as well as completing the stairs while the basement was being worked on by the plumber, the project should have taken 2 weeks.
This house is meant to be sold for profit, by adding 2 months to my project time, I incurred additional taxes, electrical, insurance (holding) costs, which I should not have incurred if J&J would have done their job. They also did not properly credit me for the money that was spent on me paying my plumber to do their job (concrete work). A $300 credit from J&J vs. $500 cost from [redacted].Desired Settlement: Electrical Cost 2 Months (August and September): $253.65
Property Tax Cost 2 Months (August and September): $527.54
Insurance Cost 2 Months (August and September): $214.67
Missing Credit for concrete work: $200.00
Total additional cost incurred by me for J&J saying they were going to be complete by 8/1 and not being completed till 10/1: $1,195.86. I am seeking J&J to meet me in the middle at $597.93, I feel this is a more than fair settlement since they knew I was on a tight deadline to get the house completed, and on the market as soon as possible. In their contract, it was stated work should be completed, in a timely manner, this is by no means a 'timely' manner.
