Payments will be allocated to labour costs in the first instance and then once all the labour costs are paid funds are allocated to materials. When more than one invoice due by a particular client or agent then the sum of any labour costs are paid first with the sum of materials after.
We do not usually employ other trades (such as carpet fitters, plasterers, joiners), but can include such works- if this is the case it will be specifically detailed on any job detail sheet
When floors coverings and carpets are lifted this is carried out on the basis that Coleman Electrical & Security are not liable for any damage.
Coleman Electrical & Security specifically exclude damage to carpets, decoration and re-plastering from our quotations, but can arrange specific trades (at an additional cost)
Certain dwellings (flats, maisonettes etc) may require building warrant(s) for certain works. It is the responsibility of the client / home owner to obtain any such permission.
Some flats have pre-stressed concrete beams and these cannot be adversely damaged during electrical works. Any works on such dwellings will have surface wiring only included within the price. This is particularly applicable to certain rewiring in flatted dwellings with concrete ceilings.
It is required that the job areas will be made accessible by the client / tenant / clients agent. Works are usually priced on this basis. The nature of the work carried out means there will be varying amounts of dust made. Dust is airborne and will travel, whilst we DO clear up please be advised that it is the clients responsibility to ensure that they (or anyone in their property, such as a tenant / house sitter etc) have all breakable items securely packed away from any work areas and away from dust / debris.
As such we cannot be held liable for any additional cleaning or decoration required.
Please note we do not expect elderly/ infirm / impaired clients to move heavy objects and we will be happy to carry out such tasks (on a no-liability basis) if required.
