We placed an interior floor that is contracted to us to color and seal. The Building contractors knew that it was a finished floor and they were to take up care of it. Unfortunately they chose not to. There was some damage done to the floor therefore we were not going to be able to just color it, it was now going to require an overlayment. Obviously an overlay ment is extra cost outside of what we had contracted and estimated. The homeowner chose to bring in a 3rd unknown party To complete the color on our floor. Our contract is still open with this clients and our floor has been finished by someone else. My question is when a homeowner puts out request for bid or estimate on contracted work is that a breach of contract? If we are expecting as the contractor a certain amount of revenue and suddenly it is yanked out from underneath our feet or taken away from us. Is there anything in place to protect us, the contractor?
