Construction Contracts

Please do not *EVER* rely on a 'one-size-fits-all' contract for your construction company!

All construction projects are unique - there will never be two that progress in exactly the same manner.

This is the same for all contractors. They're unique and you'll never find two that operate the same way.

Unique projects and unique contractors require unique contracts that conform to their state's requirements.

It used to be crazy expensive to hire an attorney to draft contracts so most companies just use the same contract for project after project, subcontractor after subcontractor.

And truth be told it is still crazy expensive to hire an attorney. The difference is that now you don't have to.

There's a program titled Construction Contract Writer that creates your contracts for you, as many as you need and/or want - without ever worrying about crazy legal fees again and for that matter no longer worrying that your contracts meet the needs of the project.

When you put your contract out there for signature you need to know that it's legal and binding and that there's nothing that can get you in trouble with the license board/law.

Your contract must have its T's crossed and its I's dotted

States have individualized requirements as to what is, and is not, allowed in contracts for construction.

  • There are requirements for the size of the font, whether or not the text is bold, and so on.

  • There are requirements as to what has to be included as an attachment

  • There are requirements as to what has to be included directly in the contract

The list goes on. Please take a look at Construction Contract Writer before hiring an attorney and before relying on a 'one-size-fits-all' template.

This eBook is the Definitive Guide to "Get Paid!"

This is an in-depth eBook about how to get paid when dealing with difficult customers. It's written toward restoration contractors but the insights are very helpful for all construction contractors no matter the trade.

I was lucky enough to be invited to contribute to this book with a couple of my own articles! You might think that would make me biased but I gotta say that this book truly does have terrific articles, suggestions, and wonderful guidance on getting paid (and I'd still say the same even if I wasn't in the book). ;o)

These are forms / documents that you download to your computer and use with the listed software programs - you must have *your* computer (the computer that the forms are stored on) to use these forms. Using these forms on a computer was all the rage for many years and lots of my customers still find them useful. But I've licensed a company to carry these same forms because they have better options for how to use the forms. I've included links to this partner of mine on this page as well as an explanation of each, below.


These are forms that don't require that you download anything to either your computer or your phone/tablet - wherever internet access is available (or data if you use it on your smart devices) fill in the forms from within a browser (on *any* computer or device) and then print, email, etc. the form; it allows for excellent collaboration with coworkers and customers even when everyone is spread across the world. The forms are saved in a private cloud that you're given which allows you to share your documents with others, and everyone can sign the same document no matter where they are. Edit them any time you'd like from any computer or smart device. They're super simple to use and yet can help you to accomplish so much more than you might imagine.
