A seamless window replacement service comes with a detailed contract that protects both parties. You should know the important details to understand your contract’s terms and conditions.
Renewal by Andersen® of Kansas City and Central Missouri, a reputable home improvement contractor, discusses the elements that you should look for in a window replacement contract.
Window replacement contracts typically have two types:
Fixed-price contracts. These set definite deadlines and penalties and specify the costs of building materials and labor. They also include the expenses of obtaining permits, waste disposal and other project essentials. In a fixed-price contract, you would only pay the amount stated in the agreement. If the contractor failed to include the expenses they incurred or went beyond the stipulated project deadline, they can’t charge you those additional fees.
Time-and-materials contracts. These are flexible contracts for replacing windows. The cost of the project can change based on the time and materials necessary to finish the entire replacement. Typically, this contract is undesirable due to the uncertainty of time and cost involved in the project. Reputable window replacement contractors usually won’t issue a time-and-materials contract.
Window Contract Details
A window contract includes your contractor’s full details, including mailing address, phone numbers and email address. The project’s overview and scope of work must be stated in the document too.
The contract must lay down the materials and costs involved in the project. Furthermore, your contractor must include that his company is licensed and has liability insurance that protects you and your property from undesirable situations.
Your window replacement contract should also include the start and finish dates of the project and any penalties for missing the deadline. It should also indicate the payment terms and schedule, payment methods, termination clauses, liens, working hours and warranties.
