Green and Heritage Roofing Limited (“Green and Heritage Roofing”)
Terms and Conditions of Sale
Exclusion clause relating to chimney work. Because of the manner in which chimneys are constructed, we are unable to provide any guarantee that work done to chimneys (including, but not limited to, re-pointing, re-rendering, and work around the chimney stack) will prevent some water infiltration. This is due to the fact that chimneys are built of porous brick / stone and mortar which, after sufficient water saturation, over time acts as a sponge and through capillary action and gravity allow water to run down the internal flue and manifest itself by way of damp in internal rooms. We will always ensure and guarantee that our work will be undertaken to a reasonable and satisfactory standard in line with our legal obligations to you, but cannot guarantee that the work will prevent water penetration through this cause. Please note that this does not affect your statutory legal rights. On any job which requires any kind of chimney work, we advise upon completion of our work you (the customer) arranges for a gas inspection to be done by a registered gas safe fitter, as we can’t be held responsible for any debris which might be dislodged on the inner flue lining.
We cannot be held responsible for any minor and unforeseeable damage caused to ceilings during our work.
