What to expect in a proposal from a contractor that is going to work on your property.

Any reputable contractor doing work on your house or property will provide you with a written proposal for the work requested. Proposals can look different from company to company but they should have essentially the same information to protect you and the contractor.

  • The names and address of both the contractor and the homeowner.
  • The scope of work. This should be as detailed as possible.
  • The cost of the work.
  • Payment terms. Example: 1/2 upon signing contract, 1/2 upon completion or Net
  • Warranty period: One year is typical on labor and materials

It is not uncommon for proposals to contain additional information. When reviewing  proposals make sure to compare apples to apples. Most residential driveways do not facilitate large compaction equipment so be weary of any contractor claiming they place three inches of pavement in one lift. Do your home work on any contractor working on your property and always ask for proof of insurance before the work begins.
