I just got the new quote for materials from the Lumber Yard.
The original quote from 2016 was $21,034.00. For lumber, Trusses, Cedar shake, Roofing, windows, doors, etc....
The NEW quote for 2018 is..........$30,798.00 for the same stuff.
That is almost a $10,000.00 increase in the cost of materials. We are adding this amount to our damage claim.
I also have a NEW letter from the City Building Inspector. This new letter demands that.
1.) The new footing MUST be installed on undisturbed soil or Engineered Fill.
2.) Soil bearing test is required before new concrete footing is poured, and shall meet the bearing table.
I have more quotes for over $30k from contractors.
These idiots should have just paid me last month. It is getting a LOT more expensive for them now. Their little game is costing them big money.
I am going to court on Dec 3rd. I will be there with all the ammo I can gather.
I will keep everyone updated.
