Making a Remodeling Contract

  • What is a Remodeling Contract?

    If you are a remodeling contractor, you should consider making Remodeling Contracts to safeguard your business when you are providing remodeling. By accepting this agreement, both parties will know what to expect. With Rocket Lawyer, your Remodeling Agreement is not just a template. If you ever need help from an attorney in the event of missed payments or another problem, your Rocket Lawyer membership provides the optional benefit of Document Defense®.

  • Why should a remodeling contractor always write a Remodeling Contract?

    Whether you are remodeling a home or a commercial space, it is valuable to record the details of your work in a contract. Using a Remodeling Contract most likely will be helpful for your business because of the benefits listed below:

    • Everyone knows when payments are due
    • The remodeling contractor and client both understand their responsibilities
    • Neither party is surprised by how long the engagement lasts

    Ultimately, if you opt not to use this document, neither party will get to experience any of the aforementioned benefits.

  • How do you write a contract for remodeling work?

    Before getting started, you may want to organize these critical details for the Remodeling Contract:

    • The name and address of the client
    • What tasks you will be performing once hired
    • Whether the work will be ongoing or if it will last for a predetermined period of time
    • How much it will cost and when payment is due

    Your contract from Rocket Lawyer also contains the typical language regarding the independent work relationship between the parties, indemnity for losses, and lastly, dispute resolution. As you build your agreement, you also can select which state's jurisdiction it will fall under. Using the Rocket Lawyer document tool, you have the ability to implement additional adjustments and edits, such as license details, if necessary.

  • How much should a licensed remodeling contractor charge up front?

    Remodeling contract deposits typically fall somewhere between ten and fifteen percent of the estimated total cost. However, the amount you charge upfront depends on where you operate, as some states have limitations for the maximum upfront payment that a contractor can require. If the contractor has to order certain materials in advance, that also could affect the payment required before work gets started. You can conduct online research in your specific market or speak with peers who have done similar work to find out what the market rate is.

  • On average, what would it normally cost me to draft a Remodel Contract?

    Luckily, you don't have to pay hundreds of dollars to get your contract in writing. With Rocket Lawyer, you can draft a free Remodeling Contract online today. Your agreement will be constructed piece by piece, as you enter more details throughout the process. Simply click on the "Make document" button to begin.

    If you've got any particular questions or hesitations about how to move forward, talk to an attorney. Also feel free to explore more business documents in our library.

  • How much do remodeling contractors make?

    Contractor rates are highly sensitive to their local markets. You can generally find information about rates by doing some geographically-specific research.

  • How can I get a remodeling contract template reviewed by an attorney?

    Finding a legal professional to give feedback on your contract can take a long time if you do it by yourself. An easier approach worth consideration is to get help via the Rocket Lawyer On Call® network of attorneys. Rocket Lawyer members have the ability to request guidance from an On Call attorney with experience in business or send additional questions. As a business owner, you can Work Confidently® with Rocket Lawyer by your side.

  • Would I have to do anything else after I have created a Remodeling Contract?

    In order to finalize your agreement, it must be signed by both you and the client. As a best practice, make sure to send a final copy of your fully signed contract to your client. With a membership, you also may print out, copy, and download it as a Word document or PDF file as necessary.
