Upon execution of the Proposal, Customer shall promptly pay to Contractor fifty percent (50%) of the total price set forth under the Proposal prior to the delivery of materials in connection with the Work. The remaining balance shall be paid immediately upon substantial completion of the Work, and Contractor will provide notice to Customer of the substantial completion of the Late payments shall be subject to a late fee on the outstanding balance at the rate of 18% per annum until paid.

  3. Insurance Proceeds. If the price is to be paid, in whole or in part, from the proceeds of a residential or commercial insurance claim, then:
    1. Customer shall instruct Customer’s insurer to issue directly to Contractor a single party check payable to Contractor. Alternatively, if the insurer is unable to issue a single party check payable directly to Contractor, Customer shall add Contractor as an additional payee on all insurance proceed checks and will facilitate prompt payment to Contractor.
    2. If Customer’s insurer requires direct payments to only Customer for the Work, then Customer shall provide Contractor with written confirmation of such requirement from the insurer. Customer acknowledges that all such direct payments to Customer shall be held in trust for Contractor by Customer and that Customer shall promptly deliver to Contractor all payments received by Customer for the Work.
    3. Customer shall remain solely responsible for payment to Contractor of all amounts due under the Contract Documents.
  4. Commencement and Completion. Contractor will commence with the Work after obtaining all necessary permits, subject to Excusable Delays and Contractor’s scheduling, and all initial payments required under these Terms. Any completion time frames or dates provided or represented by Contractor are only approximates and estimates. The Work shall be completed as soon as reasonably possible subject to delays caused by weather conditions, labor problems, fire, material shortages, energy shortages, environment conditions, nonpayment of sums due Contractor, Customer or Customer’s agents, building inspections, unforeseen conditions, casualties, or other causes beyond the reasonable control of Contractor (collectively “Excusable Delays”).

    • Contractor warrants to Customer for a period of fifteen (15) years from the date of completion of the Work that the Work will comply with all applicable building codes and regulations. In the event that Customer claims that there is a defect in the Work which constitutes a breach of such warranty, Customer shall immediately notify Contractor in writing, identifying the claimed defects, and specifying the reason(s) why Customer believes that such defects constitute a breach of the warranty. Contractor shall then have the opportunity to inspect the Work and any claimed defects. If it is determined that there are defects in the Work that breach the warranty provided herein, then Contractor shall repair or remedy such defects at Contractor’s expense. The Limited Warranty does not include or cover, and Contractor shall not be responsible for damage or defects caused by or resulting from: leaks or damage caused by winds in excess of 60 m.p.h.; ice dams; pre-existing or unforeseen conditions such as high pressure fire systems, plumbing, ventilation, or anything attached to the decking that was unknown to Contractor; storms or hail; improper or lack of normal maintenance; ground movement or settlement; abuse or alterations to the Work not made by Contractor; or events or causes outside of Contractor’s control.

Contractor may, by collection, lien, litigation, or foreclosure enforce payment of all amounts due hereunder.
  17. Liquidated Damages. In the event that Customer terminates or cancels the Work after executing the Proposal but before any Work has commenced, Customer agrees to pay to Contract an amount equal to 25% of the total price stated in the Proposal as liquidated damages. The parties intend that these liquidated damages constitute compensation and not a penalty. The parties acknowledge and agree that the harm caused by a Customer to Contractor in such event, and the cost incurred to Contractor, would be impossible or very difficult to accurately estimate and that the liquidated damages are a reasonable estimate of the anticipated or actual harm that might arise from such an event.
  18. Contractor Default. If Contractor fails to perform Work in compliance with the Contract Documents, or is otherwise in default of these Terms, Customer shall promptly notify Contract and provide Contractor with 30 days to cure any such default. Provided Contractor is not prevented from curing the default by any Excusable Delay, if Contractor’s default is not cured within 30 days of receiving notice, Customer may, by written notice, terminate Contractor’s right to perform any further portions of the Work, provided Customer has paid Contractor all amounts due for Work performed through the date of termination.
  19. Waiver of Subrogation. Customer waives subrogation against Contractor and subcontractors on all property and consequential loss policies carried by Customer during and after completion of the Work. If the insurance policies require an endorsement to provide for continued coverage when there is a waiver of subrogation, the policy owner will cause them to be so endorsed.
  20. Entire Agreement. The Contract Documents represent the entire agreement between the parties, and it is acknowledged that no other statement, representation, or agreement, either oral or written, irrespective of by whom made, in any way binds the parties. The Contract Documents may be modified or amended only by a written document signed by all of the parties.
