My beef was contractors charging folks for work who have no insurance that they can get for free and then leaving a house half done when funds run out or make them hit their credit card or take out a heloc.
No contractor should every charge widows and orphans without flood insurance for electrical boxes, rip-outs or mold remediation. They can get that for free, they should take the money for what is not covered. I saw so many servpro folks banging credit cards for 5k the week or two after flood only for those folks to find the town would have sprayed for free. That 5k should have went to their appliances.
This sounds like stuff right out of the show Treme....
