Utmost care is taken working around personal items & floor covering and furniture is always protected. Doors are sealed when carrying out any dusty works, gardens and yards are protected as best possible during your project.
How long will my bathroom renovation likely take?
We will always give a clear indication of how long a project is due to take – on average our bathrooms take approximately 2-3 weeks.
What are PC & PS Items?
A PC item is an amount of money included in a contract sum to purchase a specified item such as tiles, taps, doors or bathroom fittings. An agreed estimated amount is included at contract signing but the specific products are not selected until a later stage. If the PC item varies, so will the final contract sum.
A PS or provisional sum is an amount of money included in the contract sum to cover work or materials, or both, the extent of which cannot be specifically detailed when entering a contract.
Typically, builders will include a PS for sitework costs. The builder is legally required to take reasonable steps to ensure an accurate site works cost estimate. However, in some circumstances, unforeseen events mean that the provisional sum is exceeded. This can be added to the contract sum.
For example, a building site may seem sandy and clean with minimal siteworks required.
However, there may be large rocks or tree trunks concealed below the surface which only emerge once siteworks commence.
