STANDARD OF WORK PERFORMED
The work will be performed to reasonable standards
The client must not intervene during execution of the job with instructions and/or changes of any nature or supply any tools and/or equipment. Any such intervention will void any warranty and the above standard will not be applicable. The client can, at any time stop the execution of the job. The client must and should stop the execution of the job at the moment they realise something is wrong. This includes suspicion that the end-product will be compromised or health and safety breached.
QUALITY OF MATERIALS AND SUPPLIER RECOMMENDATIONS
Materials supplied will be UK or EU quality standard, sourced from local or national traders and are warranted as such. These will be sourced with input from client. No warranty given implies free labour to remove or exchange a faulty product, unless the fault is caused by LWD (operatives).
The supplier recommends any materials, tools and/or equipment used be of UK/EU standard, marked accordingly, where possible bearing the CE or BS equivalent marks. Where alternative equipment that bears said marks is available, this will be preferred. Supplier’s recommendations are always limited to context and not instructions or mandatory in any way. Clients or others assume full responsibility for acting on recommendations.
GUARANTEE FOR WORK

Any warranty or damage caused during any phase of the LWD work will be covered up to the value paid for the job. LWD holds adequate Public and Employer’s Liability to a minimum value of £1million.

No pay means no guarantee and no reparations!
REPARATIONS AND ENGAGEMENT OF GUARANTEE

In these cases, the client agrees to start by raising a complaint (verbally or in writing). The client agrees to allow the supplier 48 hours to establish contact and engage in mediation BEFORE rectifying the issue by any other means. The supplier will make an initial remedial offer within a maximum of 72 hours.
The client will forfeit any warranty on any work done and/or relating to any claim or complaint where another supplier has been asked to, or performed any work BEFORE the supplier’s initial remedial offer.
Irrespective of claim, the client agrees that reparations will be limited to the value of the individual job.
