What to Know Before Signing a Home Improvement Contract ?  

        Before you sign a contract to make improvements to your home, you must first collect the company’s license number and verify the same with the relevant authorities in your county or state. Usually this can be done by consulting the business license division of your county or state as they are responsible for issuing the license.

        The next step is to find out whether the number of the license matches with details of the company that has been given to you, if the number of the license is a valid one, and most importantly, if any grievances have been registered against that particular company. Every state has its own law to tackle business associated with home improvement. So, make sure the contract you are planning to sign is not in any kind of violation. Pay particular attention to the printed information on the contract, like the name, address and phone numbers of the contracting company must be clearly printed, along with its home improvement license number. All these details must also be exactly the same as the details registered with Consumer Affairs. Each and every detail of the work required to be done must be included in the contract, along with approximate dates regarding the start and finish of the project. On your part, include a penalty clause in case the contractor fails to complete the job on time, since it is a well known fact that working with contractors can be quite a nightmare.

        A sensible idea would be to not make the entire payment at the time of signing the contract. Contracting companies usually ask for a deposit which you will have to pay, but try to work out a payment schedule that provides for payments to be made as and when a certain amount of work in finished.WelcomeToWelcomeRocketswag
