Scheduling: To start the process a free estimate appointment is scheduled in order to walk the job and provide an accurate pricing for the scope of work. Once we have provided an estimate a signed contract and 10% deposit is required in order to hold a place in our current schedule. We will then schedule a date for power washing in order to remove any debris so the house is ready for paint. Power washes are good for up to 4 weeks. Once the power washing is complete a start date will be given for the painting. If repairs are needed, they will be done prior to painting and charged at a time and materials rate. Darling and Associates will do everything in its power to meet intended start and end dates of a job. We make no guarantee of start or completion date. If you choose to reschedule your job after we have chosen a date, we reserve the right to work it back into our schedule as we are available. We reserve the right to move, reschedule, and cancel any job at any time for any reason.
Payment Schedule: 10% of estimate due as deposit upon acceptance; 50% of estimate due upon completion of preparation; remaining balance (including additional charges) due upon completion of contracted services. A 5% per month penalty will be assessed on all outstanding balances not received within 30 days of invoice. Credit cards payments will incur an additional 3.5% processing fee.
