A West Virginia Subcontractor Agreement is a legally binding document that outlines the relationship between two parties – a contractor and a subcontractor.
It documents the tasks a subcontractor must perform, any materials the subcontractor must bring to the job, travel details, and payment terms for the specific project.
Typically, a contractor takes a job even if he or she doesn’t have access to all the manpower, skills, or materials needed to complete it. The contractor seeks outside assistance to fill any gaps in expertise or equipment; this extra person is the subcontractor.
Subcontractor agreements allow prime contractors and subcontractors to work together to provide a full scope of work on projects like home renovations or buildings under construction.
