Additional Notes

Complaint: Superior Restoration was called in when the condo where I live flooded up. They came in an dried down the place and repaired it. They send my an invoice for repairs they did not perform, equipment they did not installed and bogus work hours. The insurance company send me a check for more than what Superior Restoration was supposed to get paid but Sup. Rest. agreed to cash the check and reimburse me for the difference which they never didI would consider what they did as fraud since they invoiced me for something that never happened.

Desired Settlement: Reimburse me for the agreed upon amount.

Business Response:

I wanted to take a few moments to respond to your complaint with the Better Business Bureau,

and perhaps provide you with some clarity on the situation.

We realize having a flood in your home can be very traumatic and stressful, and we try our

hardest to make the situation easier and go as smoothly as possible. We were called out to your

home because your neighbor, ***** ******* had a flood that in turn affected your home. Mr.

*******'s insurance company was ******** Insurance. We were in constant communication with

******'s Insurance throughout the whole process of mitigation and reconstruction, as we are

with all insurance claims.

**** **** of ******'s Insurance, and the adjuster assigned to your claim received both our

water mitigation estimate, as well as our reconstruction estimate. He also received photos of the

affected areas in your home. For your convenience, I have enclosed one of those photos with

this letter. **** **** also prepared his own estimates. We agreed to accept the amount totaled

on the adjusters scope of work, which was $696.05 less than what our original billing came to.

As for your claim that we didn't perform any work, or place any equipment in your bathroom, as

you can see from the photo enclosed, there was base trim and toe kick removed, as well as

equipment in the bathroom. All these things are billable items which were included in our


When I spoke to **** **** on November 11 th, he told me he would be issuing payment in the

form of a two-party check naming Superior Restoration on the check. We tried to make contact

with you on several occasions to collect the payment. We had a hard time getting a hold of you

and our phone calls were not returned. I finally got a hold of you on December 15th, at which

time we spoke about the billings in the bathroom. I explained to you that we did perform some

work in your bathroom and I also explained that we settled on less than our original billings

which would more than compensate for any work you felt we didn't perform in the bathroom, as

the work in the bathroom didn't even total that amount. I also explained that if there were things

we didn't do but billed for, then that money would be reimbursed to the insurance company, as

they were the ones who issued payment. You would not be entitled to a payment due to the fact

it is the insurance company's money. However, like I said before, we settled on an amount with

the insurance company who had the photos of the work performed in their possession.


On December 29, we were called out by Mr. ******* to pick up his payment. We asked our

technician to try contacting you as well since we had been unsuccessful in making contact with

you. At that time the technician explained to you that if there was any disputable amount in the

estimates, the money would be returned to the insurance company. I also wanted to address the complaint of "bogus work hours" on our estimates. I know ********* estimates can be difficult to understand. However, there is an industry standard among contractors and insurance companies. Hours are billed based on the amount of equipment placed in the home, multiplied by how many service calls were performed. This isn't explained on the estimate because it is something understood in this industry. However, again, we settled with *******'s Insurance, which they paid out based on what they felt to be a fair amount for the scope of work.


I apologize for any confusion in this process. I truly hope that this letter provides you with some

clarity on the situation. If you have any further questions or concerns, please feel free to contact

our office.
