The method in which the Homeowner and Contractor agree to resolve any disputes that may arise during the project, per the following:   

  • Litigation:  To go to court (i.e. file a lawsuit in the county or other court), where the case would ultimately be decided by a judge or jury.
  • Binding Arbitration:  A somewhat less formal method where the dispute is presented to a paid third party arbitrator, who makes a binding decision on the matter (i.e. enters an order determining the winner).  The order can be enforced in court.
