Hello everyone,

We have a signed contract for door and window replacement. The work was done, for the most part, to our satisfaction. When we received the bill, there was an additional cost of $250 for 'Jams rebuilt on 2 doors 125 per'. The contract clearly states that the 'Price includes all labor, materials, delivery and taxes.' Should we be obligated to pay this additional cost?

Off hand I'd say NO! Bring it to their attention just like you stated here and if they disagree and insist that this is in addition to the signed contract, then contact a lawyer.

Unless the items were spelled out in the original contract or you signed a change order, you're not obligated to pay. If you signed a standard AIA contract there are provisions for arbitration that you can invoke. Be very careful and make sure they don't put a lien on your house. This needs to be resolved or you may find find a lien when you try to sell your house.
