These are not guaranteed and could be subject to delays because of strikes, accidents, government direction, force majeure, mechanical breakdowns, unavailability of materials and parts or other causes beyond the Company’s control.

Working Practice & Quality Control
16: Except in respect of death or personal injury, CJ Coatings shall not be liable to you by reason of any representation (unless fraudulent), or any term (express or implied) of our agreement for any loss of profit or any indirect, special or consequential loss, damage, costs, expenses or other claims which arise out of, or in connection with the project.
17: All roof coatings systems are designed to protect the roof materials from weathering and to prevent corrosion, the system is designed and manufactured with watertight properties, however the application is not designed to stop any existing or prevent any potential water ingress and CJ Coatings Limited can not be held liable for any leaks on the roof which manifest after any works have been completed. We always recommend a full survey of the roof and guttering systems by professionals qualified to do so and prior to any works commencing.
18: These works will involve spraying a paint system at a high velocity and we ask that the client make good preparations and show due diligence around preparing the surrounding areas in regards to informing any neighboring businesses and or private dwellings to move any vehicles / other high value items within the immediate vicinity for the complete duration of works. This is to prevent any over spray landing on vehicles. We will do all we can to ensure we keep any mists to a minimum and we will not be held liable for any over spray / contamination if no evidence of preparations have been made by the client or end client.
19: All on site repairs and spraying are completed on the understanding that as much as we try to complete near perfect works that we are unable to control environmental factors such as the weather. This may cause small imperfections to the finish of the paint such as drips, sags and dust to the finish of the coatings. The industry standard states that these items shall not be noticeable from a distance of 3 meters’ or more from the surface of the worked area.
20: All panel repairs are completed on the understanding that we are unable to perfectly replicate any finishes such as leather grain, embossed and the like. We therefore announce that such repairs may still be visible from 3 meters.
21: All panel repairs, which are bigger than 9” in diameter, are deemed as severe damages and may be visible from a distance of 3 meters or more.
22: We can only guarantee a colour match of up to 80% if spraying any areas that are required to match any existing elevations or areas. Silver shades may also appear a darker / lighter shade under sunlight or if viewing from side angles. The spray technician will always make his judgment on the panel face on at a distance of 3 meters, this is the industry British standard.
23: As a spraying company we prefer not to complete any large areas of works from scaffolding or MEWPS with small baskets, doing so can cause dry lines due to not having a consistent layer of coats end to end, also due to not having sufficient viewing angles there could be a variance in shading, Therefore we will not be held liable for any dry lines or variance in shading that appear once works have been completed or after any scaffolding has been struck, this is regardless of who has supplied the access equipment. We will always prefer access equipment that allows us to have full coverage of the spray area.
24: Samples are used to demonstrate a typical product, its composition and general appearance. The products will be applied in the way that CJ Coatings Limited considers most suitable. Under our policy of continuous improvements to application methods and products, we reserve the right to make any necessary modifications without notice.
25: Duty holders of all non-domestic properties within the UK must establish an asbestos register and a management plan. The definition of “non-domestic” is “a property or structure (commercial, domestic or residential) where work is carried out” the obligation of the duty holder is that such operatives are not exposed to any asbestos based materials during the course of the work, the Asbestos Register states the presence or non presence of asbestos related to the inside and outside of the structure.
26: We assume that the client / end client has made all the relevant preparations in regards to ensuring that all areas ready for our works to commence on the date agreed, this should include the means of entry and exit, must be, as far as reasonably practicable, safe and without risks to health, with access to welfare and parking facilities, unrestricted access to the work areas and removal of all fixtures, fittings and general obstacles that could prevent or delay our works. Should our teams face any delays due to lack of preparations or access to any works areas then costs for any downtime will be charged at our minimum day rate. This may also include the removal of items such as gaskets, door furniture, alarm boxes, signage, or items that will prevent full coverage of coatings.
27: CJ Coatings will contact clients / end clients if bad weather is forecast on external projects with a view to removing labour from site as productivity will be reduced, however if requested to keep labour on site, then full charges will still apply regardless of productivity on the day.
28: Any changes or additions to the project must be agreed in writing by us.
29: Fees that include foreign fieldwork costs are based on the exchange rates prevailing between sterling and the currencies of the applicable countries on the specified date. C.J.
