Contract provisions govern roofing contractors? liability. A carefully considered contract provision can shield a roofing contractor against a claim or loss that might otherwise be used to impose liability on the roofing contractor. Conversely, regardless of the quality of the roofing contractor?s work, the wrong contract provision can make a roofing contractor liable for a loss or claim that was not due to the roofing contractor?s fault. This NRCA-sponsored legal program will focus on the most important provisions roofing contractors should seek to include in every contract and the most important provisions roofing contractors should seek to modify or delete prior to signing a contract. Contracts, particularly for reroofing projects, provide roofing contractors with a great opportunity to manage and improve their legal position. This program will present contract provisions purposely drafted for roofing contractors to address potential problematic situations, such as deck conditions affecting roof performance, building code liability, fumes emitted from roofing products and wind-uplift testing, as well as provisions to deal with every day issues such as payment, indemnification and dispute resolution. This session will be presented at all levels.
