The only way that boiler-plate contracts samlle ever be truly suitable ‘for most projects’ is when contractors all start doing the exact same work and all the construction projects are exactly the same. And once again I haven’t even touched on the many copies of the boiler-plate subcontractor contract you’ll need.

So if you use the A then you’re automatically roped into purchasing and using another of their forms the A It does everything I listed above plus SO much more. When using a contract that an attorney draws up for you it would be reusable an unlimited number of times presumably and would most likely be in Microsoft Word format.

I’m pretty sure that you don’t do the exact same type of work that your contractor buddies do, or at least some of them.

Unfortunately though the prices on these documents are astronomical – almost like the AIA thinks its forms aren’t just the gold standard but that they’re actually made of gold! They were the best contracts that could be had without the expense of an attorney.

You’d pay probably about the same as 5 to 10 AIA documents would cost you a110 but after those 5 to 10 uses you’d have to spend more money to get more AIA documents.

It might sound like not a big deal – until you find out how much each form costs for ONE usage keep reading for more info on that!

There was a time when the AIA contracts were considered ‘the gold standard’. Everything is written from “in the trenches” experience. And how can it possibly take into account every type of trade you’ll ever need, and every subcontractor you’ll ever hire?
