It is our mission to always provide the best possible services at a competitive price wherever possible, and to honour all long term legal obligations to our clients, to that end.
Warranties run from time of handover of completed works, however no warranties shall be honoured until all payments are final and satisfied, and the client shall have no right of use until then.
