New builds or refurbishment works would include other trades tools and materials.

Delays to work.

If we don’t have adequate notice of a delay in works due to other trades working or areas not ready for at least 5 days a charge to cover our costs may be added to the invoice. This also includes if we have already started other trades etc start work in the same areas.

Unforeseen extras to quote or poor workmanship from previous trades.

Whilst we try and cover all things in our quotes if any unforeseen issues do happen this will be an extra cost which will be agreed upon prior to carrying on. This also covers poor workmanship from previous trades, new plasterwork is hard to see the imperfections until mist coated, fresh plaster should require no preparation or fixing of blow plasterboard fixings, we also can't be held accountable if the plasterwork is not flat. New carpentry works should have minimal-sized gaps to fill and all nail heads should be counter-sunk prior to us starting.



If we don’t supply materials we cannot be held responsible for any issues due to the products you have supplied.
