Roofing Contract

Do You Understand Your Roofing Contract?

It does not matter if you work for a large commercial roofing business or are the proud owner of your own small roofing business, understanding your contract is vital since it governs your rights and obligations as they pertain to every project you take on. Contracts are legally binding agreements that upon signing, seal a party’s obligations. So before you sign, ask yourself some questions.

  • Do you understand the terms of your contract?
  • Do you understand your responsibilities?
  • Do you know what your liabilities are?
  • Can you tell if a provision is disadvantageous?
  • Do you know how you will work out disputes, if they occur?

These are just a few of the questions you should be able to answer before you sign a contract.

Avoiding Contract-Related Disputes

We know that contracts can be confusing and find it disheartening to see the number of people that don’t read or just skim a contract and sign it. As highly-experienced contractor attorneys, we have seen our fair share of roofing professionals end up in roofing contract disputes that escalated to costly litigation. An attorney is an invaluable resource for drafting and revising contracts that clearly define project details and goals, protect assets, and mitigate risk.

Expert Contract Review and Drafting

Our attorneys are here to help our clients negotiate advantageous terms and to understand their obligations and expectations prior to finalizing their roofing contract. We have extensive experience in reviewing and drafting a wide variety of legal documents including terms and conditions, contractor-owner agreements, teaming agreements, subcontractor-contractor agreements, licensing agreements, provisions, and bid packages. We are also intimately familiar with major documents such as the American Institute of Architects (AIA), ConsensusDOCS, and Associated General Contractors (AGC) forms.
