Handling an extra work claim

If you run a construction company, there could be many different reasons why you find yourself in the middle of a tricky situation. We have covered some on this blog and this post will take a closer look at extra work claims. There are a number of reasons why you may need to charge for work that was not anticipated in the original contract, and this may lead to a dispute over charges. It is crucial for you to pursue compensation that you deserve and we know how tough this can be for contractors across the state of California.

Sometimes, a project takes longer to complete and contractors need to pursue compensation in order to pay workers who put in a lot of effort to finish a job. Moreover, extra materials may be necessary to complete a job, which may also need to be included in an extra work claim. If you are thinking about moving ahead with a claim, it is crucial for you to know what your rights are and approach this situation in the best way possible. In some instances, contractors are able to carefully explain the situation with clients and the extra work claim moves forward without any hassles. Unfortunately, this is not always the case and these claims can lead to bitter disputes.

When it comes to any construction litigation issue, you should have confidence in the decisions that you make, especially since they could have a major impact on the future of your construction company.
