Terms & Conditions 

1. Terms

1.1 These terms and conditions, together with your signed order, constitute the agreement between Walkers Windows Limited (“us”) and the customer (“you”) for supplying and fitting of our products. We intend to rely upon the written terms set out here. If you require any changes, please make sure you ask for these to be put in writing. In that way, we can avoid any problems surrounding what we and you are expected to do.

1.2 Please read these terms carefully before you submit your order to us. These terms tell you who we are, how we will provide services to you, how you and we may change or end the contract, what to do if there is a problem and other important information. If you think that there is a mistake in these terms, please contact us to discuss.

2. Our contract with you

2.1 Our acceptance of your order will take place on our receipt of a satisfactory property survey and when we tell you that we are able to provide you with the services, which we will also confirm in writing to you, at which point a contract will come into existence between you and us. Neither party may alter the contract without the agreement of the other.

2.2 If we are unable to accept your order, we will inform you of this in writing and will not charge you for the services. This might be because of unexpected limits on our resources which we could not reasonably plan for, because a credit reference we have obtained for you does not meet our minimum requirements or because we have identified an error in the price or description of the services.

2.3 We will assign an order number to your order and tell you what it is when we accept your order. It will help us if you can tell us the order number whenever you contact us about your order.

A sample notice of cancellation (Notice of Right to Cancel) is set out at Annex A. The notice of cancellation is deemed to be served as soon as it is posted or sent in the case of electronic communication from the day it is sent. If services have commenced, with your written agreement and before the end of the cancellation period, you may be required to pay for any goods or services supplied.

6.2 If our performance of the services is affected by an event outside our control then we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know and we will take steps to minimise the effect of the delay. Provided we do this, we will not be liable for delays caused by the event but if there is a risk of substantial delay you may contact us to end the contract and receive a refund for any services you have paid for but not received.

You must comply with our reasonable recommendations, preparatory to installation taking place, designed to minimise/avoid the risk of damage.

6.8 We will not, unless specifically agreed by both parties in writing, move pipes, wires, doorbells, cables, satellite dishes, TV aerials or telephone wires or sockets of any kind while we are installing the goods. If this is necessary you must undertake such works at your own expense.

6.9 We shall not accept responsibility for damage to the base of conservatories caused by natural subsidence or subsidence caused by a third party i.e mining or subsequent building work to the property or the surrounding area or damage caused by vegetation growth or tree roots.

6.10 If you choose to carry out your own building works, we will not be responsible for any damage to frames or glass caused directly by such works. We cannot be held responsible for any latent defects in the foundations of your property or base of the conservatory which causes subsidence or damp to such foundations and which arise within the guarantee period for the services.

If a cavity tray is not installed, we will not be responsible for any water ingress caused due to lack of cavity tray.
