Oh what a tangled web we weave...

Why do contractors have to play games with the insurance companies? I am ready to get my house back to normal but have to wait, yet again, to allow my contractor time to get more money out of my insurance company. I understand some of the charges on the quote, but there are a bunch of charges out there that are complete hooey.

The contractor told me they would discount my deductible because I was allowing them to post a sign in my yard with their name on it while they were doing the repairs. What they really meant was that they would get the deductible covered by the insurance company by jacking up the charges. This is why insurance costs have skyrocketed into outer space. If you are going to give me a discount, just give me the damn discount.

I am not interested in insurance fraud. If they don't want to charge the correct amounts, they can keep their damn business and I will go elsewhere. I am not selling my soul for a few silver coins. Just because everybody does it, doesn't make it right.

  1. Tis the way of the world.

    But Honestly, I wouldn't do buisness with them either. My Dad's a contractor, and he's never hiked his costs because an insurance company is paying.

    It costs what it costs... end of story.
