d.     During the works the company will use its best endeavours to ensure that the building will remain watertight. From the very nature of the work involved it is not possible under severe or sudden adverse weather conditions to guarantee the exclusion of water through a temporarily open roof or an overnight seal.

a.     Unless the company has detailed in the quotation that the works involve building a timber frame to increase the pitch of the roof then the company cannot guarantee the flat roof will not hold any water after completion of works.

8.     MISCELLANEOUS:

a.     When a scaffolding and/or mechanical hoisting is to be erected, the company cannot be held responsible for accidents or injury to any persons through the unauthorised use of or alterations to the scaffolding and hoisting facility, unless caused by the company’s failure to comply with health and safety requirements.

b.     Power and water supply are to be made available if necessary free of charge to enable the company to complete the works.

                         ii.     where the old “decking” is removed from an existing roof before the new flat roof is installed.

f.      If the customer chooses not to upgrade to the recommended insulation/thermal value, the customer confirms that they do so entirely at their own risk and absolve the company from all liability therein.
