Florida has one of the fastest-moving construction industries in the United States, with high-rises that seem to shoot spontaneously into the air to the skylines of Miami and Orlando. But there is a lot of work that goes into every project, from planning to dedication, and each one has to be carefully tended by professionals.
Construction delays can be both inconvenient and costly for all parties involved. One project not being completed on time can become like a domino effect from the contractor's perspective. It can result in other jobs starting late. A homeowner may not have anywhere to move if their new home isn't finished by the expected deadline. Some construction delays are avoidable but not all of them are. There may be different legal remedies that you can pursue depending on how your delay is classified.

Florida is in the midst of hurricane season. While everyone certainly hopes that no big storms head this way, there is always a chance that one will. Once a hurricane hits, people need to have home repair jobs done. You might even have some that you want to finish without a storm arriving. In all these cases, you must ensure that you have a reputable contractor working for you.
Before any service is provided in return for payment, a contract should be put into place. Contracts are made for the benefit of all parties involved. The goal of a contract is to formalize all communication in a way that is clear and legally binding. This enables all parties to have a safety net to fall back on if the contract is breached.
