Should I just pay the remaining balance or wait for an invoice?
My unfortunate roofing story continues...
I was under impression that when my roofer decides to collect the money I will receive an invoice. Without presenting me with the invoice he can't complain that I did not pay him.
Is this correct or I am supposed to send them a check for remaining balance when they asks me to (email or phone call)?
Not every contractor uses the invoice method.
If their was a quote\contract presented by the contractor to the client and agreed upon before the job started then the client can pay the amount stated after the job is completed and must receive a receipt for proof of payment.
Other than that you can request for an invoice.
You should ask for an invoice that states "final invoice" or something similar. If you choose to send a cheque, put "final payment" on the cheque. If there is a contract, you can also refer to the contract number or first invoice number, to keep the references in order.
