Hi - my name is XXXXX XXXXX I'm a construction litigation attorney. Thanks for your question. I'll be glad to assist.
Do you have a written contract that says the contractor is not responsible if the brick doesn't match?
The likely reason the contractor is wanting you to locate and bring in the brick is so he can then say he put up what you gave him. Otherwise, if he found the brick and it didn't match, the expense and burden would be on him.
We have located the brick he wants to make it seems as if we have to pay to have transported to the house should the fee to transport them be our responsiblity
If your contract doesn't cover this expense - - in other words if his contract is simply to do the brick-laying, then it is likely your responsibility.
It all depends on what your contract says.
The contract is for him to provide the brick and lay the brick after we have located the brick he does not want to pay for transporting them and did not state a certain mile radius To have them picked up.
If the agreement says that the contractor will PROVIDE the brick, then that's your answer. If it is up to him to provide it, then the cost associated with his providing it would be part of your contract.
Who will answer my question waiting.
Hi - sorry if you can't see my response above.........
Therefore, it would be your contractor's responsibility to provide the brick, which means that he will have to do whatever is necessary to have the brick delivered to the jobsite.
