It’s all about expectations in this business and the new and revised Contractor’s Legal Kit forms do the best job I’ve seen of defining in writing the expectations between me, the builder and my customer. With 50 years of experience building and remodeling, I’d recommend you buy these agreements and forms before vague misunderstandings with the owner bring you another headache and cause you to lose another dollar.

I've been a licensed contractor since 1996 and it was my good fortune to obtain the original Contractor's Legal Kit back then when the contracting world was new to me and quite intimidating. Gary's simple, easy to access templates were a must then and have been essential for my business ever since. The revised and new Contractor's Legal Kit construction agreements, forms and information on the Resource tab of this site should be required reading for newcomers to the industry. Their detailed scope and thoroughness will provide even the most seasoned builder like me with over 30 years of trades experience with a wealth of new ideas and insights into construction agreements and structuring the important contractual relationship with my customers. The fact that Gary's both a building contractor as well as an attorney allows for the material at hand to be extremely practical and easy to understand. One is never lost in too much legal jargon, yet at the same time all legal bases are well covered.
