A credible roofing company will provide a proper roofing contract after you have made your decision to work with them. This is a legal document that spells out the specifics of your roofing project. What should be included in it? Here are five items to look for in a proper roofing contract.
1. Payment Terms
These will include the down payment, progress payments and the final payment. There is also a provision for you to withhold the final payment until the roofing job is completed to your satisfaction.
2. Roofing Materials
The specifics of your chosen roofing system are presented in your roofing contract. This includes the type of underlayment, flashing and shingles. It should also contain the areas covered by the system’s warranties.
Pick a roofing material that can give long-lasting beauty and protection to your home. At ImproveIT! of Atlanta, LLC, we install CertainTeed® roofing systems for exceptional roofing performance.
3. Provision for Change Orders or Add-Ons
A roof replacement is a long and winding process. There are some instances when your roofer might encounter unforeseen issues, which can lead to changes in the project. Your roofing contract will state a provision for change orders or add-ons to inform you about extra costs.
4. Lien Release
This protects you from liability if your roofer fails to pay their subcontractors or material suppliers who have taken part in the project.
5. Termination Clause
You and your contractor can end the agreement without penalty in case of any violation of the contract terms. The termination clause consists of reasons to not proceed with the construction.
