Do we have a contract template? because I found that different contractor has different contract paperwork, it is too long and I have to read them myself, I am not sure if it has any hidden details that I am aware of. If there is some official contract template, it will make me feel more comfortable and confidence to sign.
Thanks a lot guys.
A contract is as long as you make it. If you google Reno contract and press images there's long ones and short ones. But it's the policy of what ever contractor you are dealing with. It's what we call cover your but.
Hope this helped.
Carpentry Unfortunately is Not a Licensed trade like Plumbing and Electrical. In most situations but not all it does function as a efficient Trade. There is no real Template to go by. A Legal contract can be as simple
as a verbal acceptances to a written Estimate. One agrees to pay a certain amount for everything that is in that written Estimate. Obviously if there are things in the Estimate/ Quote / Contract that you are not clear about, you must get clarification before you agree or sign. If you feel it could be a major or costly item down the road, have it put in great detail in writing on the Estimate or Contract before you sign. As soon as you agree and or sign a contract you agree to everything and the way it is interpreted by the Contractor that prepared it.
I find that a "Scope of Work" document is more important. Here I list the actual "to do" list that both the client and I sign.
Payment terms, start date, estimated time of project and any special requests, omissions or concerns are simply stated.
Sign a second spot for knowledge that everyone accepts "contract" and has read everything.
Biggest problem is when "changes" happen. Must diligently track and amend documents,adjust price accordingly, re sign and keep on keepin on.
