You have every right to fire the GC, but it may cost you money in legal fees to fight any leins he has on the property. If you do insurance work you should know that you have to do part of the work out of your own cash reserves and wait for disbursement from the insurance company. His crews errors are not your problem, they are his. If you have problems you should include your insurance company in the problems you are having. If he is running into problems with extras they should only be related to things the adjuster missed and not his or his crews incompetence. If upon rip out he finds hidden water damage that would be an example. An example was a flood job I did not too long ago where we found termite damage that could not be seen untill after demo. Since it was not related to the flood it was not covered. Unless this is his first insurance job he should know the procedures and not be expecting money before it is due, stick to your guns and make sure he is doing the right job. If not include your insurance company and possibly even your mortgage company in any problems. A lein is not that big a deal though in the long run as long as you pay off the agreed amount as per contract. Just make sure if you stay with this guy he has a lien release with him when you give him the finnal check!

Here are the major reasons my wife and I are leaving a negative review:
-During the water damage mitigation, the demolition crew did not take any measurements so that the rebuild crew would know how to rebuild areas the same as they were before. This caused the rebuild crew to have to redo items like framing in the shower niche.
-During the water mitigation, items such as switch plates, heat registers, curtain rod ends, shelving and other items were stored in the house and misplaced. When it came time to put them back,
-When I was told all of the damaged areas were removed, I walked through to inspect and found two areas with dry wall that had very noticeable water damage that were not removed. They ended up removing the damaged material, but they should have inspected their work before telling me they were finished.
-The rebuild project manager sent us the first scope of work with out reviewing it. There were several errors that took a week for
-Because the original tile that we chose was discontinued, we had to choose different tile. Due to this, revisions had to be made to the original scope of work. Again, the project manager sent the scope of work before reviewing it. The changes in scope should have only been for the tile, but we found that there were changes in scope for rooms not affected by the tile. I'm still not sure how there were changes to the scope of work to rooms not affected by the tile change but there were several. It took nearly two weeks for
-When I told the project manager the type of texture I wanted on the walls, he told me they did not do things that way and they used a different type that was noticeably different. I was not satisfied with the texture they used, but at this point in the project, we had already been out of our house for 4 months. We did not want to delay the project further, so we settled on their texture. We will give
-The rebuild consisted of drywall, tile work in the bathroom, and reinstalling the kitchen cabinets, counter tops and kitchen sink.
The rebuild started in early April and the kitchen cabinets were not installed until the first week of June. The kitchen sink was not hooked up until the last week of
-The first contractor they hired to do the bathroom tile ordered 20 square feet of tile more than we needed (we only needed about 55 square feet. Because we ordered tile that was more expensive than what we originally had, we had to pay for the difference. When I asked
-Right before their first tile subcontractor was to start work, he took other jobs and told us it would take a couple weeks before he could get to us.
-The lone bright spot of the project was their second tile subcontractor. He was very nice and professional and did an amazing job. I will leave a separate positive review for him.
-My wife and I each work 40+ hours a week. Because of this, if we have quick comments or questions it is easier for us to email rather than take breaks at work for phone calls. The project manager ignored all of our emails for about 5 weeks. We finally had to contract his manager so that he would become more responsive.
