Contract Provisions


The contractor will carry out home improvement services according to the provided scope of work and acceptance of the proposal by the homeowner.  All agreements are subject to the following:

Permits, Licensing, & Approvals
Contractor shall obtain all required permits, unless otherwise specified in agreement, including local residential construction permits. Contractor will also pay any fees associated with licensing or inspection of completed work. Should any easements, zoning changes, or modifications to any applicable covenants or restrictions be required to complete the home improvement project, the Homeowner shall be fully responsible for any costs incurred.

Insurance & Loss Coverage
Homeowner agrees to maintain adequate insurance coverage for the property where the home improvement project is being performed. 

Contractor agrees to maintain liability insurance and agrees to provide a copy of the certificate for that insurance to the Homeowner, if requested.

Property Access
Homeowner agrees to provide Contractor with reasonable access to the property where the home improvement project is taking place. Contractor agrees to make reasonable efforts to prevent disturbance or damage to the property or surrounding areas. 

Site Conditions
The home improvement contract is based on observations made during the Contractor’s initial walk-through of the property. While every effort is made to provide complete and accurate pricing up-front, unforeseen conditions could lead to unexpected costs. Homeowner agrees to be held fully responsible for increased costs due to mold, insects, or other discoveries which were not visible in the initial walk-through. 

In the event that such conditions are discovered by the Contractor during the home improvement project, Contractor shall issue a change order for Homeowner’s approval. Contractor reserves the right to stop work until Homeowner and Contractor agree on a reasonable means of addressing these unforeseen issues, should they need to be corrected before work can proceed.

Project Costs
The cost of the project and payment schedule is specified in the invoice provided to the homeowner. Should Homeowner fail to make any payment by the date specified in the invoice, Contractor reserves the right to reschedule continuation of the project at a later date, so as not to interfere or interrupt Contractor’s ongoing work schedule.

Change Orders
Any additional work or modifications to the work listed in the agreed upon scope of work shall require a change order. A change order is a formal document listing the materials and labor required for services not listed in the original home improvement contract and must be agreed upon and accepted by both the Homeowner and Contractor.  A new payment schedule will be provided once a change is agreed upon. All changes must be paid in full at the time the change is made unless otherwise agreed upon between Contractor and Homeowner.

Contractor guarantees that all home improvement work shall be carried out in a professional manner with quality workmanship. Material warranties are not offered by the Contractor and are limited to manufacturers’ warranties. 

Contractor shall guarantee the quality of all labor and installation performed for a period of warranty months specified in the agreement. This warranty covers any fault or failure of installation or construction associated with the home improvement project. The warranty does not cover ordinary wear and tear, abuse, neglect, or acts of God.

Final Payment
Final payment is expected upon completion of the project, unless otherwise agreed upon in writing between the contractor and homeowner. Contractor reserves the right to charge 5% interest on any remaining unpaid balance after 10 days and 3% per month thereafter. Unpaid balances are subject to collection action after 30 days and additional fees may apply.

Dispute Resolution
Both parties agree to take reasonable measures to resolve any conflicts or issues before, during, and after the home improvement project. In the event that a satisfactory conclusion to any conflict cannot be reached, both the Homeowner and Contractor agree that the agreement is governed by the laws of the state of Pennsylvania and that Pennsylvania is the state of jurisdiction.

Homeowner may cancel the project agreement within 3 business days, provided no work has commenced.  Any deposits made or money paid for special order items will not be refunded as Contractor cannot return or exchange those items.
