Remodeling is a usual practice by homeowners to give their house a new and fresh look. One of the most common rooms in the house that is usually remodeled is the kitchen. Remodeling the kitchen will replace old and outdated appliances, utensils, and furniture with better models that are more efficient and energy-saving. Furthermore, if a homeowner plans to sell or lease their house, remodeling a kitchen with a more quality modern design can increase the value of the home and attract potential buyers or lessors. To successfully remodel a kitchen to make it more functional, a contractor and an interior designer are usually called to do the job. Before the remodeling project will start, a contract must be made between the contractor and the client to agree on certain terms and help address any concerns of the project.

What is a Remodeling?

Remodeling is the process of changing the design and functionality of a particular establishment or an area such as a room. Commercial and residential establishments go through remodeling when the person occupying it may want to change how the area looks and how it will be used for. An example of a remodeling job is that it involves tearing out some walls to expand the space of a room and relocating fixtures to a different part of the room to create more space or installing new fixtures to add to the functionality of the room.

Details to Include in a Kitchen Remodelling Contract

1. Scope of Work and Floor Plan

The remodeling contract must start with a scope of work that includes details such as how the remodeling work will be done, what materials are to be used, where the materials will be stored during and after the job is done, and when the post-project clean up will occur.

Aside from the scope of work, the contract must also detail out the floor plan of the whole kitchen. The floor plan must include the electric plan, plumbing plan, tile, and flooring layout, cabinets and shelves install plan, and HVAC plan.

2. Contractor’s License Number

The contract should include the contractor’s name or name of their company and their license number. This also must be included in any forms of communication with the client such as estimates, proposals, and invoices.

3. Description of Change Orders

Change orders should also be included in the contract to add any repairs or remodel jobs that were not in the original quote. This usually happens in remodeling jobs so it is a must to include a change order clause.

4. Warranty information

The contract should also include an outline of what materials are warrantied and who is responsible to make those replacements or repairs.

5. Subcontractor Agreements

Don’t forget to include a section where you will state the information of the subcontractors and their license information, and the agreement on who will pay them and when will the payment be done.

6. Payment Terms

The contract won’t be complete if you don’t include any information regarding your payment terms and schedule. Identify how the payments will be done by the client when the payment will be given, and the agreed mode of payment.

7. Timeline

The contract should outline the timeline of when the work will be done by putting the start and finish date of the project.

8. Additional Clauses

Don’t forget to include other common clauses included in a remodeling contract such as financing contingency clause, payment clause, and owner liability for misinformation.

FAQs

What is a reasonable price to remodel a kitchen?

The price may vary depending on what type of remodeling is done in a kitchen but it is advised that an entire remodel job should cost no less than 5% of the current value of the home and no more than 15%. However, there will be unexpected costs that may occur so homeowners need to prepare 20% more of their budget to set aside and prepare to pay for those costs.

What is the most expensive part of a kitchen remodel?

The most expensive part of remodeling the kitchen is the cabinets since they are the most essential furniture of the kitchen and they need to be functional and sturdy enough to hold many kitchen items and utensils.

  • One-Wall Design
  • Corridor Design
  • L-Shape Design
  • Double-L Design
  • U-Shape Design

Before you finalize the contract, discuss it first with your client and reach a mutual agreement with its contents.
