Contingency Agreement – Roofing

Roofing contractors in Charlotte NC have started to use contingency agreement contracts prior to working with homeowners and insurance companies. Most roofing contractors have at least one incident where they did all the leg work, just to realize the homeowner when to another roofer just so that they can pocket some of the money. What is a contingency agreement contract? A contingency agreement is any contract that is introduced prior to any work being completed. Roofing contractors use a contingency agreement to secure that homeowner will stay with the roofing contractor during the whole process, from dealing with insurance companies to installing the new roof.

Can I get out of a contingency agreement contract? A contingency agreement contract is a binding contract between the homeowner and the roofing contractors. This contract can be released/ dismissed only if both parties come to an understanding. After the understanding, a separate release form has to be signed stating that both parties agree to dismiss the contract.
