I have worked under my fathers' company for years and am looking to branch out into my own business. His contracts aren't really that professional or concise. I was wondering if there was a good website or area on this one to see what a few general contractor contracts cover, and what to watch for .. etc etc ... This would be regarding building maintenance, but I think general contractor contracts would help give me the right idea.

Any tips?


What a great site by the way!

Make your quotes or estimates as detailed as possible. Clients appreciate it and leaves less room for disputes, should they arise.

Good Luck with your business.
