Contract
Once you’ve chosen the professionals you want to work with, you will likely be asked to sign a contract. Make sure that the contents of the contract are acceptable to you before signing. Also, ask the contractor to estimate a completion date for the contract so you can hold them accountable if the work is not finished in a reasonable time frame

Carpenter
A carpenter is a professional worker who can build the foundation and rough work of an addition, a deck, or a screened porch. Carpenter can also do finish woodworking like building cabinetry, hanging doors, and mounting trim.

Circulation Pump
The device that causes water to circulate within the heating system.

Construction Liens
Just like any bill, it is important to pay your contractor and construction bills on time. But unlike most other billing agencies, contractors and other home improvement professionals have the ability to put a “construction lien” on your property if you do not pay. A lien is a legal document filed with your local register of deeds, basically making your debt public record. A lien filed against your property will be held against you if you try to take out a home equity loan, line of credit, or refinance. And before you collect proceeds from the sale of your home someday, the company will have legal rights to that portion of the profits. A “lien waiver” is a document from a contractor, subcontractor, materials man, or other party stating they have received payment and waive any future lien rights to the property. Be sure to ask for a lien waiver once you’ve paid and keep it in the file.
