Inspections to make sure the work is what you expected: Client's Bill Of Rights.

1) Inspection Clause

As a Time and Materials work agreement delineates, it is important to inspect the work performed during work development to prevent mistakes from going too far.

Also it is important to inspect any work immediately after it is completed and to express any questions or perception you may have about the results of the work performed right after the work is completed, so worker has a chance to correct it before he/she leaves.

After work is completed, you have the right to inspect and ask for any adjustments, improvement and corrections before he/she leaves. 

You also have the right to inspect for any craftsmanship imperfections and request correction up to 48 hours after the service is completed as long as you voiced your concern to the office, same day of service. 

After this time-frame window, without your formal acknowledgment of dissatisfaction for any incomplete work, unsatisfactory craftsmanship and/or any problem that can be visually detected, you automatically acknowledges the results of the work performed as acceptable and waives your rights to request unpaid corrections.

First we will provide climbing equipment, ladder, climb assistance devices and lifts up to 10’ high at no extra charge. 

Also e will provide extension ladders to reach exterior walls up to 2 stories high (about 25’ high).  But you need to let us know over the phone when you are booking and requesting work that requires these devices.  

Even if you are not certain about the exact height, you can provide a loose estimate in number of stories, number of door lengths, number of feet, number of people standing in each other’s shoulders…  You get the idea. — This is so we will know how far up we have to reach and we will bring the proper equipment.  

Call the office if you just realized you need it and our worker is already there. There is a chance that we may be able to solve it fast.

Excess trash and debris: - Client's Bill Of Rights

4) Trash clause

Of course, we will do a basic cleanup and place any trash using your regular means of trash disposal. 

Its important to check with your howling company, because when city regulation prohibits such practice, or the debris and trash is too much for your container to handle, they may charge you a fine/fee for construction debris.

Although this may be the case, we can remove any trash from your property if you want us to do so.  

At no extra charge, we will remove up to, one contractor-size bag of debris or trash.  Contractor-size is considered to be in between 30 to 40 gallon in volume of trash and 40lb in weight maximum. EXCLUSIONS: No Concrete, drywall, logs or branches, nor any dirt!
