These Terms and Conditions apply where the customer is a “Consumer” as defined by the Consumer Rights Act 2015

1. GENERAL:

  • All electrical installation work will comply with BS7671: 2015 and any amendments in force at the time of the works.

  • All electrical installation work will comply with applicable Building Regulations in force at the time of the works.

  • Unless agreed beforehand, all materials supplied, for re-wiring, will be standard White. We cannot guarantee any materials supplied by the Customer.

  • Verbal or Written Quotations will be issued prior to start of any works together with a payment schedule, if required.  Normal terms for large jobs is 50% deposit with the balance payable upon completion. Payment is accepted by debit or credit card, cash, bank transfer or cheque.

  • A pre-work survey of your electrical installation may be necessary, in order to ascertain the condition of the existing installation.

  • It is the customer’s responsibility to obtain any relevant consents, licences or other permissions needed from any third parties such as landlords, planning authorities, local authorities or similar. These must be obtained before the electrical services commence.

  • Our standard working hours are between 08:00hrs – 17:00hrs Monday to Friday inclusive.

  • Where work is to extend or modify existing circuits, costs quoted assume that the existing installation is in adequate condition and complies with minimum current regulations. Any works found required to bring the necessary parts of the existing installation up to standard will be at additional cost.

  • Any faults found during testing and inspection, which require immediate or urgent rectification, must be made safe prior to that circuit being reconnected. Any costs for such work will be in addition to any previously quoted figure. Such issues will be brought to the customer’s attention as soon as practicable.

  • Unless stated otherwise, all cables will be concealed by chasing into the building fabric or concealed in building voids, under floors, etc. Where impracticable, cabling will be neatly surface run, either clipping direct or housed in trunking / conduit.

  • Where carpet or flooring coverings may require lifting to allow concealed installation work, no charge is made for this service, with best endeavours being made to avoid damaging them and to refit them to an acceptable standard. 

  • Every effort will be made to undertake installation work in a clean and tidy manner, using dust sheets and vacuuming as necessary. However, please be aware that some additional vacuuming and cleaning down of surfaces should be expected afterwards.

  • Whilst undertaking the installation work at the property, the customer is required to provide water and power free of charge.

  • Clearing and / or moving of furniture and other items blocking access to work areas is not included.

  • Re-decoration and final making good is excluded from quoted costs, unless specifically detailed as included.

  • Workmanship by Windsor Kitchen & Bathrooms Ltd is guaranteed for 12 months.  Materials will be covered by the Manufacturers Warranty.  Any faulty materials, within the first 6 months, will be replaced.

2. NEW CONSUMER UNITS:

  • Installation of new consumer units (fuse board) is subject to the whole installation being tested to ensure it is safe to be connected to a new consumer unit. This is a legal requirement under Part P Building Regulations.

  • Existing faults on any circuit may not have been picked up by the previous fuse board but they will be by the new consumer unit. Any faults found when connecting the new consumer unit which are deemed unsafe or faulty, must be rectified prior to that circuit being reconnected to any new consumer unit. Any costs for such work are not included. Such issues will be brought to the Customer’s attention as soon as is practical during works.

  • Following a loss of power some items in the home may require resetting or reprogramming, for example, boiler, time clocks etc. Power will be reinstated but no items will be reset or reprogrammed.

  • In particular it may be necessary to install new main services bonding to water, gas or oil supplies. This is especially common on properties built during or prior to the early 1970s and again these are at additional cost unless agreed otherwise beforehand.

  • It has been assumed that the incoming mains supply is adequate to withstand a new electrical installation and the earthing values obtained prior to final connection and certification meet the required standards.  If this is not the case then you should talk to UK Power Networks about upgrading the service head to a modern standard. This is not included in any quotation and should be dealt directly with your energy company.

  • All new consumer units installed are tested and verified on the day of installation. Faults that develop after such time are in isolation to the installation and any additional visits to locate and rectify faults are chargeable.

  • If you have had an Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) carried out on your property recently and this has shown the installation to be satisfactory, this must be presented prior to Installation of any new consumer units.
