Terms & Conditions

Right on Construction, Inc. General Provisions:

 

Sealer is optional and is not included in price.

It is understood that Right on Construction, Inc. will not be responsible or be held liable for:

 

1. Cracks - Concrete foundations, slabs, walkways, driveways, sidewalks, approaches etc., can develop hairline cracks not affecting the structural integrity. There is no known method of elimination of this condition, which is caused by characteristics of expansion and contraction. It does not affect the strength of the concrete. It is concrete’s nature to crack. To control cracking as much as possible, RoC thoroughly compacts base rock, uses rebar and add expansion and control joints where needed

 

2. Plastic shrinkage cracks, cracks from freezing or thawing, crazes cracks, earth movement cracks, settlement cracks or cracks resulting from applications or placement of heavy loads.

 

3. Discoloration - Uniformity in the color of concrete may vary within the same pour or when repaired or replaced. With a hand-crafted product like stamped concrete, color charts are unreliable. There are many unknown variables with raw materials, such as cement color, mix water, sand and aggregates, for a color chart to be accurate.

 

Unless otherwise noted in approval attached, RoC has proposed your project for a single mobilization and installation that is final and complete once RoC crew leaves the jobsite.

 

Excavation: O/B will indicate the property lines and any known underground irrigation or utilities to RoC and will provide a survey if in doubt. Underground construction involves risk of damage to existing underground infrastructure in addition to the possibility of encountering unexpected subsoil conditions including, but not limited to, rock, clay, aquifers, archeological items, existing or abandoned construction elements and sink holes. Reasonable effort has been made to locate or predict said risk but no warranty is expressed or implied as to what will be discovered or encountered during construction. Proposal is an estimate only and is based on similar projects where adverse conditions were not encountered. Any such adverse conditions which arise during construction will require additional work which will be billed at time and materials above and in addition to the amount shown on this proposal. By accepting this proposal, customer agrees to these potential additional charges which may include work by others, when necessary, in the opinion of the contractor.

 

Sump Pump: Upon completion of sump pump installation, RoC will pour water into the sump pit to test that it is working properly. If it does, your installation and testing is complete. Please fill out the manufacturer warranty paperwork that came with the sump pump. A failed sump pump can lead to costly repairs for your home. Plan to replace your sump pump every seven to 10 years to ensure your home is adequately protected. Electrical power outages are the most common reason a sump pump stops running, but this can be avoided with a backup power source. Sump pumps need routine maintenance and testing to ensure they will continue to function properly. RoC suggests using a licensed plumber if any problems arise and for maintenance to ensure your pump works properly.

 

This Contract shall be construed in accordance with laws of the State of California. Right on Construction, Inc. reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to change, add or remove portions of these Terms and Conditions, at any time. If any portion of this Agreement is deemed unlawful, void or unenforceable by any arbitrator or court of competent jurisdiction, this Agreement as a whole shall not be deemed unlawful, void or unenforceable, but only that portion of this Agreement that is unlawful, void or unenforceable shall be stricken from this Agreement.
