On every project we create a contract for both parties to sign setting out all the key points of the project and identifying payment terms. Each contract will safeguard both you as a client and ourselves as contractors. Ensuring all insurances are in place for the project and any specific terms and conditions are noted.
If you are unsure on which contract is the right one for your project, don't worry we will run through the contract that suits your works and give you time to go through it before you sign.
In most circumstances payments are scheduled fortnightly or monthly. In some smaller projects usually less than four weeks we may agree to take full payment on completion.
Some projects may require deposits to be paid but will shall inform you of this before the works are scheduled to start and inform you what these will be used for.
We use our estimate when invoicing to make things simple and easy for you to follow. Applications for payment will be made against works completed or percentages of works completed on larger items. We will be more than happy to go through applications with you whilst going around the project showing you which items relate to costs.
