The construction industry has had its issues with individuals and companies that promise the world and deliver something far short of that, never to be seen again. In their defence, by nature of the work we do sometimes despite everyone’s best intentions things can go wrong and it is normally the mark of a company whether they see it right.
At JACK we have always stood behind our team and the quality of our work so should something not go to plan we have always got it right for the client. As we were already ‘walking the walk’ it was recommended that we start ‘talking the talk’ too, so we are pleased to be able to formally introduce the JACK workmanship guarantee.
Below is a version we can all read and understand that still keeps our solicitors happy. They have advised that the conditions are subject to change and for the current and full legal wording of this guarantee please refer to the terms of trade relating to your project.
