"8 months ago we hired a contractor that a friend referred us to for our basement remodel. We naively did not put a legal contract place, and paid him 1/2 up front. 2 weeks into the project, and with a house that was a complete mess, the contractor told us he underestimated the project and the price would now double. After months of arguments, tears, and legal bills, we realized we would never get our initial $25,000 back. We've since hired a new contractor to finish the work and he used Contract Smart to put in place a contract that protects us going forward. It was easy understand, and we love the payment milestones concept.”

"I just finished a large landscaping and irrigation project at my home in Evergreen.  We choose our contractor because he used the Contract Smart program. After reviewing the bids from 3 other local contractors, we felt that this contractor was more professional and organized.  The contract and scope of work detailed every task and the materials that were going to be used, and how much I would pay along the way.  As a frequent traveler, I also appreciated that I could review the contract and any changes online at the Contract Smart website at anytime."
