Subcontractors – Paying (cont., pg. 4)

 

Types of Subcontractors and How They Are Paid


Heat & Air Conditioning (HVAC)

Your HVAC contractor provides a total price for entire job, including all labor and material.

Make one payment of around 50% of total after rough-in is complete and inspection passed.  Pay the balance after the final installation is complete and final inspection has passed.

 


Insulation

Your insulation contractor will propose a total price for the entire job.

This will include all labor and material.

You should make one payment of anywhere from 50-75% when wall and floor insulation is complete and inspection has passed.

Make final payment after attic insulation is complete and inspection has passed.



Roofing

Roofing is measured by the “square.”  A square is the amount of shingles it takes to cover one hundred square feet of roof.

Roofers charge a fixed price per square, which can vary according to the type of shingle or the pitch (steepness) of the roof.  They also charge more for two-story houses.

Extra charges occur for installation of vents, valley metal, or other options.

Some roofers will contract to provide all material as well as labor.  I find it cheaper to provide material myself.

Make one payment when the job is complete.
