Terms and conditions of trading.
Any defects or issues remaining after a repair or installation has been completed must be notified in writing within 7 days of the works being completed. In the absence of any problems being brought to our attention we reserve the right to charge payment in full.
Any additions or variations to the works, including any change in the manner in which or the time at which the works are to be carried out shall be charged on a time and material basis or shall be the subject of a separate estimate/quotation and the value agreed, where it is practicable to do so before the work is carried out.
Unless otherwise stated, the quotation provides for laying cables, conduit and pipe-work runs by the most economical and practical routes.
The quotation presumes that the client’s current heating system is piped in accordance with best practice and in line with schematic diagrams included in manufacturers’ instructions. Any issues caused with the operation of the new boiler as a result of non standard piping/design will be subject to an additional charge which will be discussed with the client before commencement of rectification works.
We do not accept responsibility for any part of a heating system which we did not install. Any issues caused as a result of draining and/or filling the heating system are not covered.
Failure to allow an undersized gas pipe to be upgraded will prevent us from commissioning the boiler. As a result of this, the boiler will not be operational and the warranty will not be honoured by the manufacturer. The client will be invoiced for the total installation amount quoted.
The works will be carried out so as to comply where appropriate with the Building Standard (Scotland) Regulations, the current edition of the IEE Wiring Regulations for Electrical Installations, Gas Safety (Installation and Use) or any other relevant regulations.
The client shall obtain all permits or other approvals necessary to carry out the works covered by this agreement (including without prejudice to the foregoing generality any Local Authority Consent) and pay all associated fees.
The Contractor shall take reasonable care while carrying out the works but, unless specifically included in the quotation, the price does not otherwise include incidental redecoration or other related works which may be required upon the handover of the works duly completed.
Full payment is required upon realistic completion of the works and paid in full within seven days of the date on the invoice.
Title of any goods supplied or installed by the Contractor shall remain with the Contractor until full payment has been made for these goods.
The Contractor shall use all reasonable endeavours to complete the works within the period stipulated in the quotation, or if no period is agreed prior to the commencement, then within a reasonable time. The Contractor shall not be responsible for any delay, loss or damage whether direct or consequential, arising out of any cause that is beyond the Contractor’s control.
The Contractor undertakes to repair, or if necessary, replace free of charge, any defective materials selected by him or work found to be defective if the defect is due to faulty materials supplied by or defective workmanship of the Contractor and brought to the Contractor’s attention within 12 months of the completion of the works provided nevertheless that:
Such repair or replacement of materials or carrying out of remedial works in terms of this clause will only be carried out by the Contractor, his servants or agents. Failure by the client to follow this condition will result in the undertaking in terms of this clause becoming null and void.
The Contractor accepts no responsibility for the materials or work carried out in accordance with drawings, designs or specifications prepared by persons for whom the Contractor is not responsible.
