The same applies if remedial works not apparent at the time of estimation show themselves as necessary during the scheduled work.
3) If any hazardous substances, such as asbestos, are found on the property during the works, works will cease until Heywood Heating and the client have acted upon any local or national regulations and requirements. This may incur additional charges if these actions are not covered in the original quote. However, if the substance must be removed or left in place without alteration or additional works, this will fall to the customer and the safety of the working area will be their responsibility.
