Try your state roofing contractors ass'n. I also think that NRCA has some...they probably cost at NRCA though. nrca.net

I don't think I've ever seen a roofing contract that the roofer provided to me on a commercial job. We've always provided the contract to the roofer.
Power to you if you can get a GC to sign yours - I've just never seen it.

Commercial doesn't necessarily mean through a GC Hatchet. BTW I have made it my new policy to not sign anyones contract if they won't sign mine... and mine has a clause that says this agreement superceeds all others.

Commercial simply means properties used for commercial purposes. This includes re-roofs.

Hatchet, one more reason to hate gc's.

I write my own roofing contracts and have the lawyer give them the twice over and he tells me if I have left anything out that needs to be in there, and I have had my contracts signed by gc's. Mine also supercedes all others.

I believe in squeezing just as much as I have to. Most of the time the squeezing comes about from something as simple as manpower. I don't like to push unless it's absolutely necessary. I do quite a bit of pre-construction planning with subcontractors so they know full well what needs to be done and in what timeframe. If they look like they aren't going to make it then I start pushing. It's no different than what the owner does to me or what trade contractors do to their second tier subs.

Also again I'd like to point out that commercial roofign doesn't necessarily mean new construction or that a GC is involved because on re-roofs the roofer can and often times does deal direct with the customer.

Just trying to pull this topic back on track.
