Client understands that Anastasia Painting will NOT set a commencement date for the project until AFTER the necessary approvals have been received.
    2. Site Inspection: Prior to the commencement of the property, Client should thoroughly inspect the Project area for existing damage and/or potential safety hazards. Ideally, Client should take pictures of any relevant areas and send them to Anastasia Painting as soon as reasonably possible. Should client fail to notify Anastasia Painting related to the above, it may incur additional costs associated with the Project should Anastasia Painting be required to expend additional time or resources not originally anticipated.
    3. Removal of Valuable and/or Fragile items:  As detailed in article VI above, we will only assist with the moving of “move ready”, non-fragile, items. You will be responsible for the removal of all other items from walls, or the general vicinity where the painting will take place. Anastasia Painting does not assume any liability for damages to improperly removed valuable and fragile items. It is highly recommended that you utilize the services of a professional mover should you have any question.
    4. Removal of Electrical Goods from area where work will be carried out: We can, if it has not been done so already, remove/unplug electrical equipment related to home entertainment systems and the like.

Under no circumstance will Anastasia Painting be held responsible for re-connecting and/or confirming the operation of your electronic equipment, nor responsible for any alleged damages thereto.
    5. Notice to other related services: YOU MUST undertake any and all steps necessary to protect the integrity of your paint/coatings when they are applied. This includes, but is not limited to, ensuring that other services (e.g. Lawn, Tree Trimming, Bug Services, Pool, Irrigation, etc.), are properly rescheduled or cancelled in order to allow the paint/coatings to cure properly in accordance with manufacturer instructions. Your failure to appropriately coordinate these items COULD result in your project being delayed.
  8. Use of Licensed Contractors: In certain circumstances, prior to the commencement of any work on the Project, other licensed contractors (e.g. Electrician, Carpenter, etc.) may be required to complete certain things BEFORE Anastasia Painting can begin its work. By way of example, drywall may be damaged beyond simple repair, electrical may need to be relocated or made safe, etc. In any such circumstance, Client shall be solely responsible for the contracting and payment of the required licensed contractor(s). It is understood that, if the Project requires the work of other licensed contractors, that Anastasia Painting will not officially schedule commencement on the Project until AFTER the related work has been completed.
  9. Damages & Substandard Workmanship:

Anastasia Painting cannot be held responsible for the deterioration of products applied to your property if the underlying issue is that of a construction defect, and not a defect in the material.
