Far more contractors are vulnerable than they are aware because of a tool you use every day – a poorly conceived and incorrectly worded contingency contract.
Candidly, what could be more boring than contracts, you know, construction agreements – even for contractors?
Wait just a minute, these documents are critical. Imagine a warrior going to battle without a shield.
How vulnerable would he be?
Look… the equivalent of a warrior's sword is your pen. When you ink the deal, that secures a client. The equivalent of your shield is your contract. This unassuming document protects contractors from the occasional unscrupulous consumer from screwing them over after they’ve put a ton of work into helping that client get a comprehensive scope of work and fair market rate for ALL their damages.
A contract is like the lock on your back door – it keeps honest people honest. A committed thief is going to lie, cheat and steal no matter what you do. Nevertheless, a really good contract will lock in even a relatively honest consumer. Once they realize that they have contractually obligated themselves to YOU to perform their work, they stop the foolishness that occurs when greed rears its ugly head.
Here’s the problem - the majority of contract attorneys we have spoken to, say contingency contracts are virtually unenforceable.
Here’s why - basically a contract is nothing more than a meeting of the minds – laid out in writing.
I am giving something of value in exchange for you giving something of value. I’ll pay you $10,000 and I get a new roof. The more specific the contract is, the more enforceable it is obviously. Essentially, the contingency construction contract is stating that ‘we will be doing some amount of work…. to be determined in the future…. for some amount of money…. to be determined in the future. Can a contract be more vague? That’s why contingency construction contracts are essentially not worth the paper that they’re printed on.
The other HUGE problem a colossal vulnerability, that 95% of roofing and storm restoration contractors have and are not aware of – many of their contracts are null and void the day the client signs them. Here’s why – the majority of states have some public adjuster licensing laws in place. To negotiate with anyone regarding an insurance claims violates these laws – its referred to as public adjusting without a license or sometimes UPPA – the unauthorized practice of public adjusting.
Stay with me here, this is critical. If your contract has ANY language in it like this at all, then it could very well cost you your business – we’re talking bankruptcy. And according to Wikipedia, a full 44 states have some form of statutory law that makes public adjusting without a license a crime.
In addition to our revolutionary Two-Part Contract, the Contractor Pro-Docs package is chock-full of important, essential documents you need, including:
* BONUS #1
* BONUS #2
Let me share a quick story of triumph to tragedy with you about a major contracting company who were recently on top of the roofing contractor world with nothing but visions of continued success for their business, when they experienced a near catastrophic melt down practically overnight because they weren't prepared with the necessary docs to cover them when things went wrong...
...A little background, this is critical for you to understand – a couple years back, one of the largest roofing companies in the US was sued by one of its clients – I’m talking these guys do 8,000 roofs a year! No one could have guessed the potential ramifications that this small lawsuit could have for contractors nationwide. It seems they had some seemingly innocuous language in their construction contract that stated that they would work with the insurance company to help with the consumer’s claim as well as other common, seemingly innocent wording. The lawyer for the roofer’s client jumped on that and made the case that their contract was null and void because there was language in it for activity that was illegal in that state for a roofer to be performing – UPPA language.
The consumer prevailed in court and the judge not only ruled that the contractor’s contract was null and void, but also ruled that the contractor must return every penny that they collected for roofs and other work, done under this contract, to all property owners, in full, upon request of course – going back to 2005! What an impact on their business. The legal reason was, that since the contract was null and void the day it was signed, the consumer had never agreed to pay the contractor one red cent for the work they performed.
We take the time explain, in plain English, the purpose, function and necessity behind every single clause in our contracts in a comprehensive instruction sheet. With your license, you’ll get full use of the documents for your company’s professional use and can omit or change the any wording that you’d like. They’re your company’s contracts, the wording licensed to you for your use how you see fit. You pick and choose what terms, clauses and wording that fits your company’s needs.
We license the use of the entire Contractor Pro-Docs package to contracting companies for a mere $1,495.00 licensing fee for the Residential package, and $1,995.00 licensing fee for Commercial package with a renewal fee of only $95.00 annually – and this is for a perpetual license. With your perpetual license, comes free updates for all licensed documents. If one of the documents in the package is ever changed or updated, the updated wording is emailed to you immediately for free, to use it as long as you keep the annual renewal license fee going.
How much would it cost to have a genius contract attorney create all these 20+ documents (even if you and they knew what all to include)? Five thousand dollars… ten? And that’s if you were able to locate a construction contract attorney that specializes in roofing or insurance restoration contractor agreements and could figure out all of our brilliant bells and whistles. And how long would it take them, even if they knew everything that we know? We’ve been working on this package for over 15 years, have only had two refunds total during the last 2 years offering this package. We honestly believe that our Contractor Pro-Docs package is the bargain of the century, especially considering the state of vulnerability that roofing and insurance restoration contractors are in out there with their current, mediocre at best, contracts and documents.
