Overview

Construction projects can be complex, and often several professionals are required to make sure the job can be done properly. If you have been hired as a contractor on a construction project, you may be considering hiring any number of additional specialized contractors to help you finish the job.

From hiring carpenters and roofers to plumbers and electricians, subcontracting is a very common way that things get done in the construction industry. A subcontractor can increase the type of services that you offer, and add that extra work that can make your construction project really stand out. In order to make sure all subcontractors are aware of all of the relevant details of their jobs, contractors must have a clear agreement explaining the terms, conditions, and scope of responsibilities involved.

This interactive subcontractor agreement will help you create an agreement that is clear, accurate, and easy-to-follow. By setting out a framework for the time and manner a project will be carried out, this document is an important first step toward the completion of a construction project assisted by subcontractors.

This subcontract agreement creates a binding agreement between a property owner and a contractor, and the construction project must be carried out according to its terms. Any delay, cost overrun, failure to perform, or defective material can give rise to legal liability on behalf of the contractor, so parties should customize the terms of their construction contracts according to what works for them.

Also consider using this construction contract as a standard business form for your contracting business. You can use this interactive, step-by-step guide to develop a standard agreement that includes terms regarding important business practices.
