Design change cause contractor to increase cost
Last week, workers came in and gutted the second floor in preparation for an entire redo. They were Tuesday through Thursday. Some excuse was made about not coming riday and no show on Monday because of getting permits. Sent the GC some plan changes which include shrinking one bathroom and locating a door in the other bath in a different place. Sounds like he's dragging his feet. He said the job would be completed by May 20 but they haven't even started!
We kept asking him what he needed and when. We have only been sending him rough plans with no specific electrical etc.. He said he'd let us know. Now he seems to have hit the brakes. There's a totally full dumpster in the backyard since Thursday.
We have already paid him almost one-third of the contract price. What if we can't agree on the change in the new price?
