Customer will ensure interference by unauthorized individuals will be avoided so as not to impede the smooth progression of the work.
Customer shall grant the contractor permission to work in the subject area(s) and shall be required to prepare all work areas so as to be safely accessible and acceptable to Contractor. Depending on the scope of the work we may have to enter property using a small pickup truck, skid steers / pavers all the way to large tri-axle trucks weighing in excess of 20,000 lbs and will require stable access for our equipment. We are not responsible for damages to driveway, grass, pavers and any other areas required to enter said property for the purposes of construction. Please note that our technicians take great care to minimize this damage. Signage is recommended to more effectively mark the construction area. The Contractor is not responsible for underground that is not marked or underground pipes that may be crushed / damaged while accessing the construction area. Customer must provide water, electricity, and all necessary hookups at no cost to the Contractor as Contractor deems necessary to perform the work. The Customer shall be responsible for ensuring that all landscaping, grass, and shrubs outside the surface perimeter are lower than the surface itself so as to aid in proper drainage. In order to drain properly, outdoor courts require a 1” minimum slope per 10’. The Customer shall keep all irrigation systems off during resurfacing work, and for 2 days following the completion of work. Damage due to use of any irrigation system will be billed as additional expense to the Customer. Note: irrigation water may have negative effects on the new surface, and should be adjusted to keep water off the court’s surface. Irrigation water will typically stain or discolor court surfaces.
It is understood and agreed that all work is performed “weather permitting”. Contractor will make every effort to timely notify the customer if work is unable to be performed due to weather. In the event the customer cancels or postpones a scheduled day’s service without providing Contractor at least 48 hours notice, customer agrees to an additional mobilization fee of 475.00.
If such is required, this proposal does not include the cost of permit fees, engineering, drafting, blueprints, inspection fees, impact fees, or any other fees which may be required from the various agencies or municipalities having jurisdiction.

Furthermore, areas of aesthetic, profile, or texture differences will remain or may become more obvious with the removal of existing coatings, caulking, sealants or substrates. Absence of a vapor barrier, curing agent on concrete or topical waterproofing agents added to the concrete voids any warranty implied or expressed in writing or otherwise.
Contractors Note Regarding Crack Treatment: Cracks in a playing surface can be caused by many reasons. However, the most common are surface cracks & structural cracks. Surface cracks are caused by the aging surface material that becomes brittle and cause surface cracks that are generally small in width. The structural type of crack is caused by sub surface settling, and is generally wider. They extend from the sub base into the aged playing surface, and are caused by sub base settling and aged playing surface which then causes a wider deeper crack formation. This proposal includes a scope of work designed to treat the cracked areas, however, they may reappear in the same area at any time or form in new areas at any time. When these issues occur, it is not under warranty. If total elimination of cracks is desired, total reconstruction may be required, Please speak to your Sport Surfaces licensed and certified professional to discuss this option.
