What is a construction invoice template?

A construction invoice template is a formatted document used by contractors to give details of their services and the associated fee or cost when collecting payment for their work with another party, such as a client. For most residential construction projects, key items that should be included on an invoice template are:

A list of products and/or services rendered: This includes items such as labor hours, materials, service fees, and other related items.

Payment terms - After providing service, clearly state your payment terms (i.e., full payments upon completion vs. partial payments as milestones are hit).

Total cost for services rendered and any additional fees if applicable (such as taxes): Make sure you list out every line item so there’s no confusion about what the charge is for.

Details necessary for making payment including name/address/other contact info. Make sure you provide all necessary info so that payment can be sent without delay once work has been successfully completed.

What are the different types of contractor invoice templates?

Our free invoice template includes three different types of invoices that you can choose from after your invoice data has been entered. The options are based on the three most common invoice formats:

Standard Contractor Invoice Template

A standard contractor invoice includes a breakdown of all the individual expenses with unit price, unit quantity, and total price. The price of each line item on the invoice may include a markup, but it isn't listed as an additional fee but instead factored into the unit price displayed.

Cost Plus Fixed Fee Invoice Template

A cost plus fixed fee invoice includes a detailed breakdown of all expenses, including labor, materials, overhead costs like administrative time for filing invoices. The sum total of these expenses is then added together (cost) and a percentage markup (plus) is included so that the contractor's profit is specified on the invoice.

Lump Sum Invoice Template

A lump-sum invoice is a type of invoice that outlines all the charges for a single project, service, or job as a fixed amount. The invoice will often include a list of expenses, but not broken down by unit price and unit quantity. These invoices are typically used with the cost of a project was set and agreed upon ahead of time and aligns with the signed contract.
