George Lawrence reports:
"Remodeling often involves choosing specific types of material and hiring specialists to install that material. Bathrooms, kitchens and patios often use tile as the floor covering. There are thousands of tile options to choose from; the owner of the building and his interior decorator want to choose the right type of tile to suit the room. It is also critical that the tile be installed properly, with even grout lines and no loose ends. A tile contract between the owner and the specialist installing the tile can help ensure that the job is done to the proper specifications...Agree on a price, a time frame for installation, and other details such as what each party is responsible for and what to do in the event of a breach of contract...Use identifiers such as 'owner' to indicate the owner of the property and 'contractor' to indicate who is doing the work...Include headings such as 'Contractor’s Duties' and 'Tiling.' Include enough headings to encompass the entire scope of the tiling agreement...In the 'Tiling' section, include basic information such as 'Contractor agrees to provide all setting, grouting, cleaning, and sealing materials.' Be specific as to what the contractor must do...Fill in the other sections of the contract with information that relates to each section heading...Sign and date the contract. Provide copies to the contractor and the owner."
