Do You Have a Contract For Work to be Completed?

Our quotes are signed by both MONK Renovations and our clients and form a contract. Detailed contracts, such as these, provide a record of what was agreed upon and help ensure the renovation is completed as requested by the client and as agreed by the contractor. Good paperwork creates and maintains good relationship.
