First thing i would do is arm myself with weather info of the days around the claimed date. And go from there. Hope you can find it here,just look for your building area. Apparantly a rain day is 5.0mm or more,from what i have read on here somewhere. http://www.bom.gov.au/products/IDN60901 ... 5765.shtml

Maybe they made a mistake with the date. I would chase it up, just to let them know you are watching them.

I think they probably can claim it anyway. They may reasonably argue that even though they did their best to maintain construction during the weather, the rain prevented performing a particular task (e.g. because of OH&S and a wet roof) or site access for a particular piece of equipment which then had to be rescheduled for a later date resulting in a delay.

It did pour like crazy at our site too. But that was the day they put the roof trusses over the garage, completed framing and invoiced me the very next day for framing completion. I mean the one day is really not a big deal but certainly it reflects on their work ethics and integrity.
