I had the pleasure of presenting to the Omaha chapter of the National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI) last week on steps they could take to ensure that they get paid for their work.
The majority of our discussion dealt with construction contracts and clauses that should be included in their construction contracts. The clauses that I recommended included:
- Identification of contract document
- Detailed scope of work
- Dealing with concealed conditions
- Payment terms
- Dispute Resolution
- Change orders
I appreciate the opportunity to present and I thought we had a great discussion about how the NARI members could improve their construction contracts. If you’d like a copy of my presentation, including sample construction clauses, please let me know.
