Work Contract

A Work Contract starts with you, customer, being cautious and defining all the criteria clearly before both sides sign it.
Make changes to a project in writing, inspect the work regularly and pay directly and promptly the Work Contract.

10 Tips for Working With a Contractor - Part 2

Be cautious about upfront payments for more than 15% of the contract price.
The schedule and criteria for each instalment should be clearly defined in the contract.
Any instalments should be not be required on a certain date, but correlated to work completion.
Do not pay cash. A reputable builder will ask for a check.

7.Make any changes to the project in writing with a "work order change" to avoid misunderstandings and surprises.
8.Keep pets and children away from the construction site. This will ensure not only their safety, but also that of the workers. In addition, it helps keep the project on schedule.
9.Inspect the work regularly.
10.Pay directly and promptly according to the contract.
Above all, you should feel comfortable communicating with your contractor. If you sense he is being evasive when you are getting a quote, it won't get any better during the construction period. Find someone you understand and who understands you, and who is open and forthright.

Working with a contractor takes a little preparation, but following these steps is well worth it. Are you looking forward to your new outdoor space?
