TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR DOORS, WINDOWS AND CONSERVATORIES on Chesterfield and The Surrounding Areas
1. Deposits and Stage Payments
If the order is of any significant value (above £5000), a deposit of 25% of the order value will be required 14 days prior to the commencement of work. This value will be deducted from the Final Invoice amount.
If the order value is above £10,000, a deposit of 25% of the order value will be required 14 days prior to the commencement of work and another 25% of the order value will be due 7 days after commencement of installation. The remaining 50% will be due in line with the Payment Terms specified on the Invoice.
We offer an Insurance Backed Guarantee policy to all our Window, Door and Conservatory customers. Under the changes in the Building Regulations that came into effect in April 2002, every consumer must be offered the opportunity to purchase an insurance policy to cover their installer's guarantee/warranty should the installer, for some reason, be unable to fulfil its guarantee obligations. S.K Sanderson has included this Insurance Policy in with this contract hence there is no need for the customer to purchase. This Insurance Backed Guarantee covers all that Sanderson Windows Sanderson offer in their own warranty/guarantee (Section 8), but will become operational in the event that we cease to trade within the period of insurance.
