Signing the decoration contract and abiding by the

  • Detail

The decoration contract has legal benefits and is used to protect the legitimate rights and interests of consumers. So when signing the contract, you need to pay extra attention to avoid laying disasters and disputes for future decoration. So how can we not be cheated

1. Decoration payment method: in general decoration contract, 60% down payment is agreed, 35% after woodworking acceptance, and 5% after completion. If you follow this form of payment, you will have paid about 95% of the cost to the decoration company after about half of the construction period. If there is any problem in the later stage of decoration, it is difficult to restrict the decoration company in terms of money. Therefore, it is suggested that when signing the contract, the down payment should be reduced to 30% and the interim payment should be 30%. Interim payment: the interim payment time agreed in the general contract is simply to indicate that more than half of the project, and the carpenter closes. However, a construction site is often multi project cross operation, and more than half of the formal construction period should be: the completion of woodwork production; Kitchen and bathroom walls, floor tiles and ceilings are finished; End of wall leveling; The electric transformation is over

2. Duration agreement: generally, for a room with 2 bedrooms and 100 square meters, if it is simply decorated, the duration is about 35 days. For insurance, the decoration company will generally agree the duration to 45-50 days. If you are in a hurry to check in, you can discuss this clause with the designer when signing

3. Arrival time and times of supervision and quality inspection: general decoration companies assign the project to each construction team to complete. Quality inspectors and supervisors are the most important supervision means for decoration companies. The time interval of their arrival inspection is particularly important to the quality of the project. Supervisors and quality inspectors should be present every two days. The design should also be present once every 3-5 days to see whether the on-site construction results are consistent with their own design

4. Water and electricity costs: during the decoration process, water, electricity, gas, etc. will be used for on-site construction. Generally, by the end of the project, the water and electricity charges add up to a large number. Who should pay this cost should also be indicated in the contract

5. Construct according to the drawing: construct in strict accordance with the drawing signed and approved by you. If the detail size is inconsistent with your design drawing, you can request rework

6. Increase or decrease items: during the decoration process, it is easy to increase or decrease items, such as making more cabinets, changing more water circuits for several meters, etc. These fees should be paid at the time of completion. How much should the unit price of these items be? If we wait until the construction has started, it may be the design. Therefore, if possible, it is best to copy a complete quotation originally shown to you by the decoration company, so as to avoid the decoration company changing the price when signing the contract or increasing or decreasing the project

also note that when you finally settle the expenses, the increase and decrease expenses you should pay should be signed by you before the construction of the project. If you do not sign for approval, you can not pay the corresponding expenses

7. Warranty terms: the whole process of decoration is still mainly manual on-site production, which has not been fully industrialized, so it is inevitable that there will be various fine quality problems. Within the warranty period, the responsibility that decoration companies should implement is particularly important. For example, if something goes wrong, whether the decoration company is fully responsible for the warranty of labor and materials, or only labor and not responsible for the warranty of materials, or there are other restrictive clauses, these must be clearly written in the contract
