Estimate


The value of the estimate is what we expect to charge you for the works, based

revised price.




Written Quotation


The written quotation follows the estimate and is the final price for the works
discussed, including labour and materials, additional costs including expenses
(if any) and tax. Any subsequent variation to the works (including, without
limitation, if you change the scope or if unforeseen circumstances or unexpected
issues arise) will likely result in a new or revised written quotation. You have
the right to accept or decline the new quotation. Should you choose to decline,
all works will cease and, on receipt of our invoice, you must pay in full for
all works already completed in accordance with the original quotation.
