Help Writing a Contract with Stone Fabricators
What should be included in a written agreement with a stone fabricator?
Agreements offered so far, have not included specifics about the scope and manner of services -- how the job would be done.
I am not comfortable with generalized agreements which say little more than "template, fabricate, and install" countertops. Should I request language that specifies work will be done to certain standards, such at the MIA?
These are just a few of the things I wonder about including in the terms of the agreement:
How under-mount sinks would be installed, including reveal styles
What reinforcement techniques would be used (if any) in areas such as the cooktop
How the edges will be finished (by hand or CNC only)
What "repairs" would be acceptable
What happens to my deposit if the slabs I have on hold are unacceptable
What happens if "my" slabs are damaged while in the possession of the fabricator.
There is a wealth of information on this forum, however I have not seen information regarding acceptable contracts from the homeowner perspective. I would like a contract with specifics so that both parties understand what the common objective is, and how it will be achieved.
Am I expecting too much?
