We have been in business for eight years now. everything has been great. We do great work. We recently graded this guys property. The guy had a pool installed in his back yard and a pole barn put in. Needless to say the concrete trucks and other trucks tore a path through his yard getting back and forth. The guy has a big peice of property. We had him sign a contract stating that we would grade his property, add fill dirt, seed and straw. I have my guy out there with another guy for two days grading his property and adding in the 4 tri axles of dirt where it needs to be. Needless to say the property looks great. The ruts are gone. My guy exceeded the contract expectations. We even added a tri axle of pulvarized top soil no charge. The company owed us one for dumping a load of sand on the property. They did come and remove the sand. We get our final payment. The guy is happy as can be. Sit down and bullshit for a while. Take off. Three days later we get a call. The guy is pissed. Someone left on a water hose at his property and it busted and ran all night into the morning. This caused an area of newly graded dirt to wash away. It also rained and some of the seed was washed away accoring to him. The guy basically wanted us to come fix someone elses mess up and do more work because of mother nature. We nicely told him that we could come take a look but we cant control other workers you have on the property nor mother nature and we will charge to fix. We look. Not our fault. The guy said he wanted grass now and we tell him that he paid for seed and if he wanted grass now we should have sodded his property. To end the story he blows up and we got a certified lettter today stating that we are being sued. What would you do? The job was done to contract specifications if not better. The work was great. Our dirt guy is one of the best in the area. That is the main reason we hired him. It is not our fault some jackass left a water hose on causing it to blow and wash out newly graded areas because it was left onn for 12 hours plus. Just in a pickle. I dont want to fix it for free due to it not being our fault. We bent over backwards to make this guy happy. I also dont want to mess with the lawsuit. We have a lawyer.
