Deadline- or Contract Extension

You may need a contract extension agreement because almost every building or remodeling project will take longer than anticipated.

The contractor and homeowner should firstly be realistic when drawing up the construction schedule. They should agree on an allowance for bad weather days and specify that in the schedule.


For the contractor it will be especially important to get any extension in writing, lest he be held liable for penalties as may be applicable according to his contract.

Our free contractor agreement makes provision for deadline extension if done so in writing and signed by the homeowner.

Please Note: Links to all the related information and more free legal forms for contracting can be found on our main Contractor page.
