What is a construction contract?
A construction contract outlines all details pertinent to a construction job. It is created by the general contractor, reviewed by the home or business owner, and signed by both parties. A construction contract should include details such as project start and end dates, costs, detailed work descriptions, license and insurance information, permits, and warranties. Using a construction contract ensures both parties are aware of all aspects of the construction project—from how much the project will cost to project plans and blueprints.
Why should I use a construction contract?
Construction jobs can get complicated very quickly. Using a construction contract ensures both parties are on the same page about the work to be done and payments to be made. It helps minimize confusion around projects and protects you if a disagreement arises around the scope of work, payments, timelines, or licensing. Whether you're a homeowner, business owner, contractor, or construction company, this construction agreement is legally binding and protects your rights if any legal proceedings are required for a project.
