Q - Is it OK to sign a partial or blank contract?

A - NEVER. Read every clause carefully and ask any questions you may have before signing. Keep a copy of the signed contract and file it in our records. You should attempt to pay a minimal or no down payment for supplies or services, especially if he contractor is new to you. Excluding the down payment, you should not make payments for any incomplete work. Schedule additional payments at weekly or monthly intervals or after completion of each phase of the project. Again, all of these terms should be spelled out in the contract and clearly understood by both parties.

Q - Can I cancel the agreement?

A - When you sign a home improvement contract in your home and in the presence of a contractor, or contractor's representative, you have THREE BUSINESS DAYS in which to change your mind and cancel the contract. The contractor or his representative is required to tell you about your cancellation rights and provide you with any cancellation forms. If you cancel, it is recommended that a notice of cancellation be sent to the contractor via certified mail, return receipt requested.

Q - I hear people talking about Lien's on your property. How do I protect myself?

A - For a large remodeling project involving subcontractors and a substantial financial commitment, you should protect yourself from liens against your home in the event the primary contractor does not pay the subcontractors or suppliers. You may do this by adding a release-of-lien clause to the contract or by placing your payments in an escrow account until work is completed.

Q - How good are Warranties and how do I collect on them?

A - Any warranty offered by the contractor should be in writing and you should read it very carefully. The warranty must state whether it is a FULL WARRANTY giving the consumer certain automatic rights, or a LIMITED WARRANTY that limits certain consumer right. The warranty clause should spell out all terms and conditions in clear, understandable language.

Basement Remodel

It is my pleasure to recommend K&S Remodeling for all your Twin Cities home remodeling needs. They transformed our cement block basement into a beautiful living space that we use on a daily basis and love to entertain in. I appreciate the detailed bids they provide, the fact that they are always there when they say they will be, their attention to detail, and how clean they leave the job site each day. Shawn is incredibly professional and a perfectionist. They also made custom cabinets and an entertainment center for me that are the talk of the neighborhood. I’ve hired K&S on more than one occasion and they are the only company I would ever consider calling in the future.
