Thank you for requesting me.
How much would it cost them to make the repair necessitated by your error?
Are you saying that they are not out any money at all due to this error?
If this went to court the court would order that they pay you all that they owe you less what it cost them to repair your error.
You could sue them in Small Claims Court.
But, a better approach may be to first threaten to file a lien on title. You can file a lien on title within 45 days from the day that you substantially completed the work.
Then, within 180 more days you have to file a lawsuit against them.
So, your best next step would be to send them a letter demanding payment and telling them that if they do not provide you with a payment by a deadline you set then you will proceed to immediately file a lien on title.
You are very welcome, best of luck.
