A window replacement is a big undertaking, so it’s important to make sure that you have a contract in place with your contractor of choice. In this post, we’ll discuss some of the key components that every window replacement contract should include.
The window replacement contract should include detailed information about the contractor, such as their name, address, phone number, email address, license number, and any other relevant contact information. This helps ensure that all communications are tracked throughout the project.
The contract should include a detailed breakdown of the pricing for each item included in the scope of work. This includes any additional services such as cleaning, and any applicable taxes or fees.
The contract should specify the payment terms for the project. This includes when payments are due, what methods of payment will be accepted, and any other applicable terms such as late fees or discounts.
Scope of Work
The contract should include a detailed description of the scope of work to be completed on your property. With double-hung windows as an example, this includes the types and sizes of windows to be replaced, any necessary repairs or modifications, and any additional services that may be included.
Professional Liability Insurance
The contract should include information about the contractor’s professional liability insurance. This is important to ensure that you are protected in case of any accidents or damage during the window replacement project.
Permits and Inspections
Another detail the contract should include is information about any permits and inspections that may be required for the project. This ensures that the window replacement is done in compliance with local building codes.
The contract must include details about the warranty for the window replacement. For instance, if you choose gliding windows for your home, the warranty should include information about applicable terms such as what is covered and how long it lasts.
Finally, the contract should include a detailed work schedule for the project. This should cover information about when the work will start and end, as well as any milestones or deadlines that must be met along the way.
