Contract provision addresses how to tie warranty effectiveness to payment for services

This month's contract provision is intended to be added to a roofing contractor's standard warranty form.

Disputes often arise when roofing contractors are called upon to perform warranty repairs at its expense, despite not having been paid in full for the underlying work. This provision provides that the effectiveness of the warranty is dependent upon the roofing contractor having been paid:

Effectiveness of warranty depends on payment: "This Warranty shall not be effective unless Contractor receives full and timely payment for all installation, repairs and/or services in connection with the roofing system covered by this Warranty."
