Terms and Conditions

  1. Whilst all reasonable care will be taken during the execution of the works, no responsibility can be accepted for any faults or failures that may occur to existing pipework, fittings, equipment, etc. due to disturbance caused by the proposed works.

  2. The attached estimate is based on a non-intrusive survey of the property and, as such, it is assumed that any existing systems that we connect to are in good condition and in working order.  Should we find, during the works, any faults with the existing systems we reserve the right to make a charge for correcting same.   Should the client fail to mention any relevant facts relating to the existing installation we reserve the right to make a charge for correcting same.

  3. Dismantling, clearing and re-instatement of any fitted cupboards, etc. to permit the proposed works to proceed will be charged at extra cost unless specified.

  4. If, during the execution of the proposed works it is necessary to gain access into floors below fitted carpets, these will be lifted by us and laid back on completion.  No re-stretching or fixing has been allowed for unless specified.  For floors covered with thermoplastic tiles, vinyl sheet covering, cork tiles or laminate flooring, no allowance has been made for reinstatement unless specified.

  5. During the execution of the proposed works, it may be necessary to isolate various water, gas & electrical services.  This will be advised in good time and the period of isolation will be as short as possible.

  6. Whilst all holes formed during the execution of the proposed works will be made good on completion, no allowance has been made for re-instatement  of decorations. We do not guarantee to match existing brickwork where boiler flue terminals have been removed.

  7. No allowance has been made for casing in of pipework or painting/decorating of the new works.

  12. No allowance has been made for out-of-hours working unless specified or to suit our own requirements.

  13. All dates or times given for the start of or duration of the works are given in good faith based on the information gained during the survey and our current workload commitments.  These times may be varied, however, due to unforeseen circumstances i.e. emergency call-outs, breakdowns, etc. or to circumstances beyond our control. No liability will be accepted if it is not possible to meet clients timescales.

  14. The works described in the estimate will be guaranteed for a period of twelve months from date of completion against faulty design and workmanship.  The materials supplied will be subject to the suppliers/manufacturers guarantees.  The Client’s Statutory Right in law are not effected by this guarantee.  This guarantee does not extend to existing, installed equipment, pipework or fittings.

Any items or materials supplied by the Client or others for our fixing will be unpacked and inspected in the presence of the Client.  Any faults found will be pointed out to the Client whose responsibility it will be to obtain replacement items.  Any delays caused by faulty or damaged items may be chargeable, may result in us withdrawing from site and may affect the completion date of the works.

  17. Any additional works that the Client requires to be carried out whilst the specified works are being executed will be charged at extra cost.  An indication of such cost will be given and the Client’s agreement to same will be obtained before the additional works proceed.

  23. Should the works include a power-flush of the existing heating system, it must be pointed out that, whilst this treatment is generally harmless, depending on the condition of the existing components the process may find  weaknesses in the system.  Should any such problems be encountered then any rectification works required may be charged at extra cost. The customer will be asked to sign a waiver confirming this point.

  24. Should the works include a new combination heating boiler unit connected to an existing heating system, the Client should be aware that the higher pressures used by this type of boiler may find weaknesses in the existing system.  Any repairs required in this respect are not included in this estimate.  The customer will be asked to sign a waiver confirming this point.
