- An instruction to carry out work, whether written or verbal, shall be taken as acceptance of
these terms and conditions unless the work is the subject of another written contract, the
terms of which supersede these.
- Definition and basis of pricing
a) An estimate is an approximate price, calculated with reasonable care from available
information, which may be given as a range or percentage variation. It constitutes an offer
to do the work within the price range. This will be used where an exact price is not required
or is impossible to give due to lack of information.
b) A quotation is an offer to do the work specified at the price quoted.
Once either a quotation or an estimate is accepted by the client it is to be taken as a
contract between the company and the client.
c) Schedule of work. An estimate or quotation will be costed on the schedule of work
prepared from information supplied by the client. This schedule is the basis of the contract
and clients are advised to check the schedule carefully to ensure that it is what they require.
a) The price is based on normal working hours, Monday to Friday, unless otherwise stated.
b) All possible care will be taken in carrying out the work, this will mean plasterwork made
good to original finish and floorboards and access panels screwed back. It does not include
redecoration. Whilst every effort will be made to preserve the condition of any floor coverings
we will hold no responsibility for any accidental damage caused.
a) Unless otherwise stated in the estimate or quotation, payment shall be due on receipt of
invoice, which shall be submitted on completion of work.
b) Should the period of work be extended, staged invoices for work done and materials
supplied or specially ordered and held will be submitted. Payment of these shall be due on
receipt of invoice.
c) Materials supplied shall remain the property of the company until paid in full.
- Time of Completion
The company shall endeavour to carry out the work in accordance with the dates specified
on the estimate or quotation, or if no dates are specified, within a reasonable period of
time. However, the company cannot be held responsible for any losses, damage or increase
in cost due to delays beyond the control of the company.
The completed work will carry a 5 year guarantee against faulty workmanship or installation
materials. Electronic devices, luminaries and appliances are excluded from this warrantee
but will be covered by the manufacturer’s warrantee, a minimum of one year.
We shall not be liable for damage from external sources affecting the installation or any
form of misuse.
The implementation of this guarantee shall only be carried out by the company staff or
persons instructed by the company. No responsibility is accepted for repairs or alterations
effected by anybody else.
