If you have decided to build or renovate your home, and have already hired a contractor, the next step is to draw up written contract outlining all the project details. A proper contract will address the work that must be done to client specifications, the materials and products to be used, and an estimate of costs that will fit into the client’s budget. A written contract should also include details such as whether the contractor or you, the homeowner, is responsible for obtaining the relevant permits and inspections. Issues such as drawing up a workable schedule, and determining payment arrangements should also be included in a written contract.

A written contract serves a twofold purpose. Firstly, it holds the contractor accountable to any verbal agreements made at the outset of the project during the interview process in which his services were retained. Secondly, a written contract provides protection for the homeowner. A legitimate contractor who is operating in an above-board manner should also outline his business liability insurance, worker compensation coverage, bonding, licensing, and business registration such as GST/HST numbers.

Planning Is Everything

 

Planning ahead when renovating makes for a satisfying and successful outcome. Often it’s a balance between desire and budget. It is important to prioritize what you want to achieve and work within a budget.

Our 2016 Golf Tournament was a great success!  130 players didn’t all managed to finish the course due to the heavy rains provided by “Mother Nature” or the  power outage which didn’t damper the spirit of the players to enjoy a Steak BBQ Dinner after a beautiful warm & sunny afternoon of golf.
