Work in the construction industry by selling windows and doors mainly to builders. More times than not we will have add orders for a specific job (some taking up to 2 years to complete). Is it legal in North Carolina to treat each order and add order as a separate 'job'? If not, how do I handle the furnishing dates so as to not lose our lien rights?...Read More
