IF YOUR PROJECT IS TIME SENSITIVE AND YOU REQUIRE THE INFORMATION BEFORE ACCEPTING OUR TERMS & CONDITIONS AND PAYING YOUR DEPOSIT - The works coordination team will try to help and provide a rough idea of our availability to start works or estimated completion times. However this may not be possible at times due to our current and incoming workload.

We might ask you to approve drawings and information prior to the project starting so that we are certain that the whole project runs smoothly from start to finish.

Unfortunately due to the volotile times we are currently experiencing, things such as manufacturers reducing stock availability to reduce cost during high energy price increases, materials being available on time, staff shortages due to illness or self-isolation, transport strikes, changes in legislations and regullations due to Brexit or a host of other reasons that could crop up. 1974 Ltd T/A SFA Total Refurbishments, will use its reasonable endeavours to honour such dates but will not be liable for any losses suffered by the Customer as a result of any delay and time shall not be of the essence in the Agreement. if we are unable to meet any such dates we shall give the Customer as much notice as is reasonably possible and arrange an alternative date.
