Remodeling Rules \r\n\r\nRule One: Develop complete plans and specifications before you start any work. \r\nSpecify everything, such as appliance and fixture make and model, size, color, construction materials, mechanical and plumbing equipment and installation requirements, prevailing code information. \r\nWhen specific information is unavailable, include generic information and an allowance provision. \r\nRule Two: Require a stipulated sum agreement with a single contractor.\r\nRequire that the contractor give you a fixed price for the construction or remodeling. \r\nDon?t hire multiple contractors or tradesmen. You need a single entity to be responsible for the entire job. \r\nRule Three: Don?t let payment to the contractor outpace the value of the completed work. \r\nThe contractor will need to be paid as the construction progresses. A workable schedule of payment should provide for a nominal sum at the time of agreement or start of work, stages of payment based on the value of the completed work, and final payment upon completion. Stage and final completion requirements should be clearly defined.\r\nRule Four: Don?t supply materials or fixtures. \r\nRequire the contractor to provide them. The price may appear lower if you provide them, until you become, arguably, responsible for delay or quality. If the contractor installs your item with hidden damage, such as a jetted tub or kitchen appliance, you may not have a reasonable expectation of repair or replacement at the contractor?s expense. If a delivery is delayed, whose responsibility is it to do the due diligenge necessary to track it down? If lumber dissappears, who's problem will it be? Your contractor, as a professional is the most able to deal with jobsite management, losses or mistakes. After all, it's what the contractor does. Put the risk on the contractor, that's what you pay for. \r\nRule Five: Maintain a businesslike relationship with the contractor. \r\nAlways make a paper trail. Document payments, changes and progress. Require proof of insurance. Require that the contractor apply for and obtain all building permits, and pay all permit fees. \r\nRule Six: Don?t hire friends or family if it will keep you from following any of the first five rules. \r\n\r\nLook for PlansNSpecsDOTcom online.

Pros: Six Remodeling Rules

.

I'm a small business owner just getting started and had a lot of questions about how to incorporate and how to protect my ideas and work. Mr. Wise was very patient and answered all my questions clearly during consultation. He is also representing my business through a zoning variance I need for my new space. He is relaxed, which makes me feel comfortable, but also very knowledgeable and professional. I highly recommend him to others that need guidance and support when opening and sustaining their business.

I consulted with Wise Law Offices on an easement issue and realized that I needed to take my small Real Estate Development company to the next level. I have chosen to let Wise handle my corporate affairs on an a-la-carte basis. Small Businesses need a no-nonsense, efficient, budget-conscious, and experienced counsel, and this firm is all of this and more. One of Philly's best. Wise Law Offices is highly recommended.
