See Pulte Home Corporation v. Parex, 265 Va. 518, 579 S.E.2d 188 (2003) [Right to Consecutive Damages]. This results from the interaction between UCC Section 2-318 and 2-715. UCC 2-318 provides that « [t]he defendant`s privity between the plaintiff and the defendant has no defence in a lawsuit against the ?…? Seller of goods to recover damages in case of violation of the warranty?… However, section UcC 2-715 (2) states that « consecutive damage caused by the seller`s breach includes: … losses resulting from general or particular requirements and needs that the seller had reason to know at the time of the contract?… (Added to the highlight) Most courts are subsequently implied by the « at the time of awarding of the contract » in this section that there is a contract between the parties and, therefore, the plaintiff must be with the defendant in order to claim damages. See Beard Plumbing and Heating, Inc. v. Thompson Plastics, Inc., 254 Va. 240, 245, 491 S.E.2d 731, 733 (1997) [The plaintiff`s damage to uncompensated home repair costs, the loss of the remainder of the contract with the general contractor and lost revenue due to damage to the businessputation are all irreversible damages as a result]. It is not enough that the cost of the service for the seller has increased dramatically.  It is no excuse for the seller to lose money through execution.
« Impractability » means something that is due to conditions that were no longer unforeseen at the time of the contract.  The seller is not excused by predictable terms at the time of the contract. Many work contracts are located in the « grey zone, » where it is unclear whether the UCC applies.  For example, work in a typical carpentry subcontract for work and equipment is an « essential part » of the contract, and Article 2 does not apply. Simply delivering and unloading materials is probably not an « important job. » However, many truckers essentially « install » the stone by distributing the stone evenly on a road when they deliver it. Is that enough to make it an employment and equipment contract? What about finished mixed concrete? In a way, concrete is a material that is delivered to the site in the same way as wood.
