I have been a roofing contractor for 10 years. During this time we often work hail related insurance claims when available. Several times over the years I have went to great efforts in good faith in order to get a claim approved for a client only to learn that once that they got what they wanted, I was told to take a hike so they may pocket the insurance proceeds instead of using them to have the work done by me as originally agreed. As a result of this frustration I changed my contract last year to spell out several times the cancellation policy in this event. It clearly states, several times, that they understand that what we are providing is a "service", and that the service is NOT FREE in the event they cancel or breach the contract after said services have been performed in order to ensure their claim is approved. It is a contingency contract, that is binding and carries a 30% cancellation fee in order to deter people using us in this manner with no intent for compensation once they have received benefits. It also contains language that they give permission without question to place a mechanical lien on the property.and charge interest and collection fees until paid. There is additional language included such as; meeting of the minds with their insurance company, a time and date of completion, date of acceptance of contract, our legal address and theirs, scope of work to be performed and a clause required in Colorado referencing insurance rebating fraud. It is crystal clear what happens in this event they cancel and must pay for this labor/ service incurred. I've never had to file one yet but I'm wondering if this will go through if I do. I've also made them aware of my intent to enforce the contract via text message, phone call and paper deliver to principle place of business to the hot,e owner of which I have pictures. Please let me know if you think stick, as I have made it as clear as humanly possible in the contract to no longer be taken advantage of and have my time and services wasted in this manner.
