15.3 This agreement is conditional upon Our surveyor’s approval of the Schedule of work following inspection.
15.4 If the surveyor’s approval is not given for whatever reason or you do not accept the proposed modifications, the deposit will be refunded, less any costs incurred (any survey carried out is charged at a minimum of £350 +vat), and the agreement will be at an end. If We decide not to proceed with your project due to the above, the survey cost will be omitted.
15.5 All windows and doors will be fitted at our surveyor’s discretion, if any specific position, method, or guideline is sought by the you, this must be agreed in writing with our surveyor and noted within your survey report.
15.6 The technical survey carried out by Us is not a full structural survey of your property and will only deal with items which are reasonably ascertainable from an external examination of the installation site. The contract price is therefore calculated on the basis that your property is structurally sound and there are no factors that are not reasonably ascertainable from an external examination. This includes the presence of hazardous materials such as asbestos and the omission of lintels which would make completion of the contract more difficult than reasonably anticipated on such survey. If such factors are found to exist at any time after technical survey, we reserve the right to charge an additional fee for carrying out the additional work by reference to the time and materials involved. If and to the extent that such factors exist, we will notify you of the additional cost. We will also be entitled to amend the installation period proportionately to the increase of work required. If you wish to have the extra work carried out by your own contractors, this will be acceptable if we agree the extra scope of works. Should our surveyor feel the need to carry out an asbestos sample test, this cost will be covered by the purchaser (Asbestos tests currently cost £35 and you will receive a copy of these).
15.7 We install many different product ranges, specification of these products can regularly change. We reserve the right to modify hardware, frame and glazing details periodically to maintain the highest standards and current industry requirements.

15.11 We offer aluminium pressings in a maximum of 2500mm lengths and frames/cills in 5000mm lengths. Joints to frame will normally be central unless requested elsewhere.

16.2 We will require access to the premises at all reasonable times for the purpose of carrying out work. An electricity and water supply will be required as well as access to welfare facilities.

Alarm contact/sensors/ Satellite Dishes/ TV Aerials and alike are to be removed and replaced by a specialist company before and after installation, this is the responsibility of You to arrange this prior to installation, the cost of which has not been allowed for within this contract.
16.8 Once Our installers have started your installation they must be allowed to work at a normal pace at your property or premises, if they are asked to stop or are delayed for any period longer than 30 minutes you will be charged at waiting time of £55 + VAT per man/hour in addition to your contract total. Please be aware that should works be put on hold by the customer, multiple visit charges may become applicable.

Sprayed uPVC trims are used in Aluminium applications and therefore slight shade/texture differentials may be apparent due to the different material types.
