Claim against Bond


I just had a GC install some tile and it is horrible workmanship. Every tile installer I have interviewed since says it all needs to be demo'd and start over.

Can anyone give me some guidance on going after the GC's bond.

Re: Claim against Bond


If you know who is holding the bond then contact them, it is somewhat like an insurance policy. Of course a lawyer is always an option. At some point someone will need to confirm the claim and establish a cost to remedy it. Start documenting all details and get approval before you demo anything.

Re: Claim against Bond


I have already contacted the bond holder and they sent me forms. I have written estimates and photographs.

My concerns before moving forward, who's side is the bond holder on. If its like an insurance policy claim then they will most likely fight to not pay out.

I need this money to move forward. Looking for advice from anyone who has gone thru the process.

Still have not posted a single picture so we can see what your seeing, or even stating what the issue is.

Re: Claim against Bond


This has nothing to do with seeing images of the work or issues.

The question pertains to the bond process and how to achive a positive result.

Re: Claim against Bond


It has a lot to do with it, first thing there going to do is ask for pictures and ask what the issue is, as I have done on all the sites you have posted the same question on, then there going to send out a 3rd party they trust to inspect it.
The way to have a positive outcome is having a valid claim against them.

Re: Claim against Bond


Congratulations and ensuring that your GC had bonding to cover any problems that came up. Many people don't do that.

Re: Claim against Bond


That's not what the bond is for in this state. It's for things like getting a deposit and not doing the work and not refunding you. It doesn't sound like you hired a tile company. If it was a handyman or low bid your best option will probably be small claims court. If you can convince the judge it was a rip off you then need to somehow collect.

Re: Claim against Bond


The other course of action is to file a complaint for poor workmanship with the CSLB.
Here is an explanation of the complaint process.

So nothing has been resolved yet? Photos would help but if you're talking degrees of workmanship it becomes subjective. It isn't like he didn't show up. bear in mind, you saw the job and obviously paid him.
