  18. REQUIREMENTS. Additional service information and requirements listed below.
    1. Product Warranties: All warranties are limited to those offered by the manufacturers of the products used. Provider makes no additional warranties. If Recipient ever has a concern regarding Provider’s work, Provider should be notified immediately.
    2. Water Usage: By signing the Contract, you agree to provide Provider the right to use an on-site water supply as needed to complete the stated project without compensation. If an exterior water supply is required, an additional charge may be applied. It is the recipient’s responsibility to make sure the water supply is on and in working order before Provider arrives. Additional charges will be applied if water is not available. Water supply must be able to provide at least 10 gallons per minute of flow.
    3. Electrical Usage: By signing the Contract, you agree to provide Provider the right to use an on-site source of electricity as needed to complete the stated project without compensation. If an exterior source is required, an additional charge will be applied.
    4. Courtesy: While Provider is performing the duties of the Services, Recipient is responsible for keeping all children and pets, as well as other individuals away from the work area. Children and pets must be kept off the work surface for at least 24 hours after Services are completed. Provider will stop work in the work area if any person or pet enters a radius of 50ft around the work area, or if Provider feels it is unsafe to continue working.
    5. Scheduling: Scheduling in a business which productivity relies upon the weather can be difficult. Inclement weather may affect scheduling. Provider will try their best to keep scheduling conflicts to a minimum, however, circumstances that are beyond Provider’s control may affect Recipient’s project start and completion dates. Recipient will be notified of any changes.
    6. Removal & Replacement of Exterior Contents: Removal and replacement of grills, deck furniture, planters, and any other items are the responsibility of the homeowner. Should we need to remove items from the deck or other exterior area(s), we will not be responsible for any damage, breakage or for storage issues. An additional charge may be applied for the time and labor devoted to the removal of these items.
    7. Damages: Provider is not responsible for damages due to improperly installed siding, loose shingles or siding, broken or opened windows, improperly sealed windows and doors, wood rot, defective construction, improperly secured wires, loose or improperly installed gutters, and leaders and improper caulking. In every aluminum siding case and in some cases with vinyl siding, the sun and weather will bleach the color or cause fading. Power washing, which entails the removal of organic, gritty, or failing surface materials may cause the faded aspects of the vinyl or aluminum to stand out. Provider will not be responsible for such conditions. Provider will not be responsible for loose mortar that may dislodge during the cleaning process.
    8. Stains: Some stains cannot be removed by power washing. Tree sap, artillery fungus, splatters from stains and paints are examples of materials that cannot be removed by conventional means. Provider cannot guarantee removal of artillery fungus from exterior house surfaces. We make every attempt to point these areas out to the customer when quoting the project. Sometimes these stains cannot be removed at all.
    9. Watertight: Provider expects your property to be in good repair and weathertight. This includes, but is not limited to all electrical services including receptacles and light fixtures. Doors and windows shall also be weathertight. Provider is not responsible for damages as a result of water and or chemical infiltration from poor or improper installation, maintenance, or repair of electrical related items or doors or windows.
    10. Window Spotting: Windows may become water spotted as a result of our services. Window cleaning is NOT included in our standard exterior cleaning service. Window cleaning is an additional charge.
    11. Concrete: The appearance of concrete depends on a number of factors most linked to when the concrete was initially poured and cured. When concrete with dirt, mold, mildew, algae and other pollutants and stains is cleaned, the concrete will then reveal any and all imperfections that the pollutants and stains have covered up. The Recipient understands that not all concrete will look the same even on the same driveway, patio, sidewalk, or concrete slab.
    12. Roofs: Recipient agrees that Provider will not set foot on Recipient’s roof under any circumstances. If Provider believes the roof is unable to be cleaned from the ground or from a ground ladder, Provider may quote Recipient for the additional cost of cleaning the roof which may include the cost of a lift or scaffolding. Roof cleanings require the application of stronger chemicals to kill any organic growth. In some cases, the Provider will not rinse the chemicals from the roof so that the chemicals will adequately clean the roof over a multi-day process. This cleaning process could take up to 2 months. Most roof’s are rinsed with the next rain storm.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the parties hereto have caused this Agreement to be executed by their duly
authorized representatives as of the date of the Estimate and upon Provider’s receiving the approval signature on the Estimate.
