The Plaintiff (Ever-Tite Roofing) and the Defendant (Green) wrote a contract for the Plaintiff to re-roof the Defendant’s residence. The contract specified that it would only become binding and enforceable either when signed by an authorized officer of the Plaintiff, or by commencement of performance of the work. The contract was never properly signed. The Plaintiff immediately and with due diligence began obtaining the necessary reports and documents for the commencement of the work.
