Long overdue update.

Bill/sunny and cold
It’s been quite a while since I’ve posted but just wanted everyone to know we are both still alive and still in Colorado. As for the work on our house, well the roof is long since done and done well. As for the oak flooring in the first floor, for those of you that have been following know what we have been going through with the contractor the insurance hired to fix our damages, well it’s still not over. A few weeks ago we found out that they(the contractor)had submitted lots of additional bills to our insurance company to pay for the damages that THEY caused to our house. Strangely, my insurance company seem intent on paying them for the damages they caused to our house. I’ve made numerous calls to the insurance company about what they did and encouraging them to disavow the new claims. A few weeks ago, I got an email from the CEO of the insurance company touting how wonderful they are. At the bottom of the email was a link to respond so I did just that. A few days later I got an email that they would have another person contact me about my concerns and a few days later I did get the call. Heck, they even recorded it! I outlined what had gone on and encouraged them to disavow this new addendum to our existing claim. We talked for about a half hour and in the end she agreed with me. They didn’t insure the contractor just us and would relay what I had said and they had taped to the arbitration department with the recommendation that they stop this new payment. Our original damage was $4,600. This new addendum for what they had done was almost $5400 far more than what was originally damaged. When I was in the business world, if I went into a customers house and caused damage, well it was my responsibility to fix it, not pile it onto the homeowners insurance. I got another call last week from the young lady at our insurance that I had talked to and she told me that there had still been no definitive answer yet but would call me once it is made.
