The Fine Print

We would like to thank you for giving us the opportunity to provide your quote for your project.  All quotes are valid for a period of 30 days from the date they are created.  Quotes are determined by information provided by you the homeowner or builder (i.e. blueprints, sketches, drawings, email and/or verbal conversations) and are subject to change based on the accuracy of that information up to the date of the quote.  Quotes are subject to change based on final, field-verified measurements of the job site.

Montgomery Woodwrights, Inc. (MWI) proposes to supply and install the items listed on the quote as shown on the job drawings which shall be provided by us after acceptance of the quote.  Upon issuance of the first set of  shop drawings (Issued For Review or IFR), up to two revisions may be made prior to the job entering production, so long as the revisions do not represent a change in job scope.

Changes in job scope include, but are not limited to:

  • Dimensional changes of cabinets or millwork over 1 linear foot
  • Material changes such as wood species, laminates or veneers
  • Any changes that require more than 2 hours of design labor
  • Changes to builder’s drawings or specifications that were not included within the original bid package
  • Changes in the production schedule to meet the customer’s timeline
  • Changes that require extra trips to verify field measurements, etc.

We understand that situations arise that require a change to an order, and we will gladly make any changes to your order as long as it has not entered production.  After that, any changes to this project must be submitted in writing. Alterations involving extra costs will be made only upon written agreement, and will become an extra charge, over and above this contract. Any loss of materials, labor, or clerical work due to these changes after production has started will be the responsibility of the buyer.

We will make every effort to meet all scheduled milestones and installation dates.  Delays due to backordered materials, shipment delays, delays caused by other tradesmen on the job site, delays caused by weather or other unforeseen circumstances are not considered a breach of contract and may require altering the schedule.  If the items listed on the quote are complete and ready for delivery or install, and the job site is not ready for the installation or delivery, we reserve the right to charge storage fees not to exceed $250 per week unless alternative arrangements can be made.

We propose to perform all work in accordance with the drawings and specifications submitted, and completed in a workman like manner according to best practices and standard methods of the trade.

Warranty

We warrant our products for life against defects in material and workmanship as defined and specified by our limited warranty guidelines which are available upon request.
