NRLRC releases publications
The National Roofing Legal Resource Center (NRLRC) has released A Roofing Contractor's Guide to Fume Claims, a document addressing alleged health effects from fumes or vapors emitted from roofing products; potential legal liability associated with installing materials that emit fumes; and strategies to reduce potential liability for fume-related bodily injury claims.
NRLRC also has released A Roofing Contractor's Guide to Obtaining Payment, which addresses approaches to collecting money; terms in invoices, liens and claims on payment bonds; stopping work; not providing warranty services; and more.
In addition, NRLRC offers Contract Provisions, Volume II. Written by lawyers, the contract provisions feature plain-language explanations. NRLRC's second volume of contract provisions includes 20 key issues, such as arbitration, dispute resolution proceedings, FM Global compliance, waiver of subrogation requirements, nonroofing personnel on roofs, one-sided waiver clauses and lending fall-protection equipment.
