According to your above statement you could go after him for not submitting a change order.

This is business! There is no room for being nice. If the GC DID NOT SUBMIT a change order than ANY changes He did are on his dime.

Go after Him DON'T DO HIS WORK FOR HIM!

The reason the other quote was higher was He saw these things coming. Unfortunately your chosen GC did not. Let this be a life lesson for Him. Guys like your GC have to learn the hard way. That means money out of His pocket.

It's not your fault that your GC wanted nothing in writing. BURN HIM!!! Make Him pay!!!! There are too many guys like this in our industry that RUIN honest GC's reputations.

Was this GC licensed, insured and bonded? If he had a performance bond, contact the bonding company. They might be able to help. Is there a state contractors board? They might be able to help.
