Any required or elected change to the Scope of Work, as detailed in formal estimate and existing change orders, may result in additional cost, at the discretion of Flatwater Builders, to be detailed with a change order. Change orders will require written agreement, and additional payment at the discretion of Flatwater Builders, prior to continued construction.
Construction shall be halted until contractually scheduled payments have been received in full.
Design retainers are non-refundable.
Deposits or draw payments may be refundable, in whole or part, at the sole discretion of Flatwater Builders, with consideration for compensation of labor, materials, and expenses accrued until the requested refund/cancellation of work.
Payments to be made via cash or check. We do not accept credit cards or other forms of digital payment.
Flatwater Builders will make every reasonable effort to provide and maintain a construction schedule, but shall not be held liable for delays, including but not limited to those caused by suppliers, acts of God, delayed payments, change in scope of work, etc.
Workmanship is warranted for the duration of your ownership of the structure. Materials are warranted per manufacturer. Flatwater Builders shall evaluate and remedy workmanship in a timely manner, or subcontract such repairs at their discretion.
Allowances are intended as an estimate of final cost, but may increase or decrease relative to individual selections and scope of work. Client shall be responsible for, or entitled to, the difference between the listed allowances and the final invoice.
Estimate is not a guarantee of final cost. Due to recent inflation and volatility in the market for lumber, fuel, and other materials, we will do our best to perform contracted work for the price listed on the estimate, but we cannot guarantee prices will not increase. Similarly, if expenses decrease between estimate and purchase, we will pass those savings to the client as well.
Flatwater Builders will endeavor to minimize necessary damage & disruption to the surrounding property. Estimates do not include replacement or rehabilitation of sprinkler systems, lawn, or landscaping, unless specifically noted.
We will do our best to maintain a clean and safe job site, but risk is inherent during demolition and construction. As such, Flatwater Builders is not liable for injury or damage caused or experienced at our work sites by those not employed by Flatwater Builders.
During design & construction, we may place a sign in your yard containing our logo and contact information. Please inform us if your individual preferences or neighborhood ordinances prevent this.
