Question DetailsAsked on 10/10/2019

Concrete Slab - Am I being too picky on the bill?

I had a reputable company come in and bid a 30 by 50 slab, 5 inches thick inside my pole barn. I was quoted a rough 6 grand. This is me doing the fill, insulation, drains, forms, etc. All they needed to do was the pour. The first pour was a nightmare. They poured too fast and busted drains and the concrete ended up almost 3/4 of an inch higher right at the one drain. After discussing the outcome with the company, they agreed to bust out, replace insulation, rebar, and drains. I had to redo the pex though as they didn't feel comfortable doing that. Now that everything is done, the floor is great. I got my bill and it is 6 grand, minus the cost I had to pay for new pex. Is it unfair to ask for a bit more since I had to take a weekend to once again put the pex in? Am I being unreasonable? I am very fortunate they fixed the wrong so I do not want to be unreasonable. Is it wrong if I ask for an even 5 grand? This would be about $500 less than what they are now charging.
