How To Use

This check list is provided to inform you about this document in question and assist you in its preparation. Change or Work Orders are one of the only profit opportunities for construction companies. If you are a contractor, be sure to so advise your clients so they understand that “changes” are much more expensive than original work.  When estimating Change Orders remember that lots of time can be absorbed in the quotation process.

So be sure to provide for that extra time when you quote on these jobs.  If you are the owner, do everything in your power to preplan events so you do not need to enter into these expensive changes.

1.  Make multiple copies. Give one to each party.
