  1. The customer is responsible for selection and approval of all paint colors. Should the customer wish to change colors, some costs will be incurred to cover time and material.
  2. The owner agrees to pay Martin Painting the normal selling price for all additions, alterations, or deviations. No additional work will be done without prior authorization of the owner. Any additional work will become a part the contract; it is agreed that all terms and conditions of this contract will apply equally to additional work.
  3. On jobs priced between $6,000 and $10,000, a partial payment of one half of the total itemized quote is due when the job is 50% complete. Jobs priced above $10,000 will have partial payments of $5,000 each. Martin Painting will have the right to stop working if installment payments are not made. If any payments are not made to Martin Painting when due, the owner will pay Martin Painting an additional charge of 10% of the bid price, plus interest at the legal rate.
  4. Martin Painting agrees to complete the work in a professional manner but is not responsible for failures or defects that result from work done by others prior to, at the time of, or after work done under this agreement. Martin Painting will not be responsible for any damage caused by the owner or the owner’s representatives, windstorm, natural disaster, or other causes beyond our control, unless otherwise specified or unless otherwise obligated by these terms to provide insurance against such hazards.
  5. The time during which Martin Painting is delayed in work by the acts of the owner or his representatives or employees or those claiming to have an agreement with or authority of the owner, or by natural disaster which we could not have reasonably foreseen and provided against, or by stormy or inclement weather which delays the work and which are beyond our control and which we can not reasonably overcome, or by extra work requested by the owner, or by failure of the owner to promptly pay for any work as authorized, will be added to the time for completion by a fair and reasonable allowance.
  6. Martin Painting is licensed, bonded and insured with $500,000.00 in public liability insurance necessary for the protection of the owner and his property during the progress of the work. We have never had to actually use any form of insurance. The customer agrees to limit any liability claim and recovery for damages due to our negligence to policy limits and will accept any mutually agreeable settlement within these limits as satisfaction of all claims.

Martin Painting is not obligated to do any work, or perform any service, except as expressly provided in this agreement. If, after Martin Painting has declared the work completed, the owner claims that work still needs to be done, the owner agrees to make prompt payment of the full contract bid price less only the amount needed to hire a competent tradesman and purchase the material needed to complete the work claimed yet to be done by the owner, until the issue is resolved.
