7.2 Notwithstanding the provisions of clause 7.1 if the Client specifically requests
the Contractor to leave Materials outside the Contractor’s premises for
collection or to deliver the Materials to an unattended location then such
materials shall always be left at sole risk of the Client and it shall be the
Client’s responsibility to ensure the Materials are insured adequately or at all.
In the event that such Materials are lost, damaged or destroyed then

accommodate the installation.
7.4 Where the Contractor gives advice or recommendations to the Client, or the
Client’s agent, including but not limited to, the suitability of the worksite, a
particular course of action or the condition of materials supplied by the Client
being inferior and such advice or recommendations are not acted upon then
the Contractor shall require the Client or their agent to authorise

subsequent commencement of the Works nor will such losses or damages be
deemed a defect.

specifications and other information provided by the Client. The Client

provided by the Client is inaccurate, the Contractor accepts no responsibility

plans, specifications or other information.

variation to the quotation as per clause 5.2.

does not follow the Contractor’s recommendations, including the shower
should not be used for a minimum of twelve (12) hours.

that are repaired by the Contractor, and in the event that other components
subsequently fail, the Client agrees to indemnify the Contractor against any
loss or damage to the Works, or caused by the Materials, or any part thereof

restoration or making good of any surface/area where any Works have
been carried out.
7.12 The Client agrees to indemnify the Contractor from any damage caused by
any other tradesman during and after the completion of the Works. If the
Client instructs the Contractor to rectify any damage caused by any other
tradesman, this will become a variation to the original quotation and will be
charged at the Contractor normal hourly rate.

responsibility of the Client to:
(a) ensure that the Contractor has clear and free access to the worksite at all

liable for any loss or damage to the site (including, without limitation,
damage to pathways, driveways and concreted or paved or grassed
areas) unless due to the negligence of the Contractor; and
(b) ensure that any surface requiring waterproofing is suitable for the
purpose. In the event that the Client requests the Contractor to prepare
the surface for waterproofing, then at the Contractor’s sole discretion a
fee shall be charged for the Works, and shall become immediately due
and payable; and
(c) ensure that no other trades men work on the membrane applied to the
surface, until the membrane is fully dried and cured to manufacturer’s
specifications. The Contractor shall not be liable for any costs, damages
or loss however arising from the Client’s failure to comply with this clause;

cured in accordance to the manufacturer’s specifications. Failure to
adhere to this clause will mean the Contractor shall not be liable for any
costs, damages or losing arising;

a timely manner; any delay may deteriorate the membrane and may void
any applicable warranty; and

water, lighting, and toilet facilities, if so required; and
(g) make the premises available on the agreed date and time and have all
areas clean and clear to enable scheduled work to be completed in

proceeds direct from the insurer without the need for any person dealing
with the Contractor to make further enquiries.

Materials then the Client must hold the proceeds of any such act on trust
for the Contractor and must pay or deliver the proceeds to the Contractor

with other goods but if the Client does so then the Client holds the

Fantastic job done on our shower. Grout looks amazing and so glad it fixed our leaks! The quality is fantastic and the staff are very professional. Would definitely recommend to everyone!
Thanks for doing such an amazing job on our shower. You can imagine my dismay when I realised my shower was leaking so close to Christmas. Barry and his team were so helpful and were able to accommodate us urgently prior to Christmas. They were completely professional, even removing their shoes when walking through the house. They were quick, efficient and the difference in my showers was immense. We really appreciated the pride that they took in completing the job properly and neatly. We would have no hesitation in recommending them or using them again ourselves. Their customer service was exemplary, their workmanship spectacular and were always prompt and professional.
Thanks so much to the team at Elite Shower Repairs.

I had a look at the finished job today and it looks great. He has really made an effort to blend things in with the rest of the bathroom.
He was very helpful with his follow up on questions and queries and sending me images of tile etc

We had Elite Shower Repairs come to our home today to do a fix on one of our showers. We have been trying for a while to have someone come out but because it was a small job no-one seemed interested. Very professional & a great job done. Big thank-you to Barry. We highly recommend them.
