Use this form for one-time projects by skilled contractors. Examples include installing new locks or windows, carpentry repairs, touch-up painting, masonry work or roofing repairs. It’s a good idea to spell out as many details of the job as possible -- and who will perform which tasks.
Because this is a contract, both parties need to sign it. If your contractor provides a form, compare it to this one to make sure all of your concerns are covered. Check the instructions that accompany this form for more help.
Important to Know:
Be wary of unlicensed contractors. Almost all states have licensing requirements for certain categories of home improvement and construction work. For details, contact your state's Consumer Protection Office.
If you belong to a homeowner’s association, it may require approvals for repair or new work. Be sure to check for local permit requirements.
