Preparation for our arrival.
Please make sure that the area that needs attending to is accessible and safe (i.e. clear of all household items). We won’t be able to start any work if we believe there is a health and safety risk, for example hazardous chemicals, asbestos or pest infestations..
If access has to be made to your property in order to carry out any work we will fill any holes and leave the surface level but we will not replace the original surface or construction. Unless we have been negligent, any redecoration or repair of damage that may be needed following our work is your responsibility..
We will give you a time estimate for doing the work. However, there may be circumstances outside of our control that prevent us keeping to such timescales. We will contact you as soon as possible to let you know and takes steps to minimise the effect of the delay and rearrange the appointment with you.

We will agree a price with you over the phone or online and take your credit or debit details then. Those details are kept safe and secure and are not stored by us. Once we have completed the work we will take payment from your card.
When we agree the price with you over the phone or online, we want that to be the price you actually pay. You need to tell us as much as you can about the work required. If we arrive and more work is required than when you booked the job then we may have to charge you more for the work. We will tell you before we start any work.
5. Your right to cancel
You have 14 days from the date you place your order to cancel without giving any reason. This is your statutory cooling off period. You can choose to have the work carried out before the cooling off period ends, however, if you cancel after we have started the work, you will have to pay for any work completed before you tell us that you have changed your mind.
If you do wish to cancel please call us on 03300247041 or fill in the cancellation form below.
