Business Description: Please claim a deal or call me to schedule 669-264-1200. Twenty-five years of tradesman experience and problem solving is what I bring to you. Your satisfaction is my reputation. Please do not ask me for a quote/estimate. FOUR YEAR WARRANTY “AT-WILL HOURLY” versus CONTRACT (Estimate = Offer —-> Accept = Contract) Since estimates are contract offers, and since forming contracts requires so much, including licensure, the only way for both homeowner (you) and tradesman (me) to stay legal is by standard hiring arrangement - payment for time (hourly) and reimbursement for materials only, aka “Time and Materials.” California is an “AT WILL” state, which means either party may quit the project engagenment without requirement of completion other than recompense for hourly time and materials. Contracts, on the other hand, specify payment and completion with legal ramifications. *One cannot give an estimate without it being considered an offer. Even if only verbal, the estimate being offered is a contract offer, one either accepted or rejected. The accepted estimate forms an agreement, also known a a contract. Forming contracts for trade labor in this California is restricted to $500 total, otherwise both training and licensure are required in order to form contracts over $500. Due to the fact that contracts (agreements) - even if only verbal - are legally binding, it’s necessary to specify the many details and limits, including phase payments, final payment, stipulations, etc., which become the law specific to the parties entering into the agreement: if you will, the agreement/contract is the law within the law. Liens are usually filed when the contract is drawn. Liens can be perfected and foreclosed, which means transfer of title. Because of all this, most contractors won’t estimate for less than $7000, because forming the contract is a lawyers’ task. But a lawyer won’t lift a feather for less than $10,000. FOUR YEAR WARRANTY STANDS EITHER WAY.
