Note: We may require that in order to secure the safety of our crew while on your roof,  that we tie on to chimneys. We are not responsible for a weakened chimney.

Note: Our technicians will not agree to accept less or more than our written agreements without a conversation between the customer - the technician - and the owner of AtlantaBlue. All checks get made out to AtlantaBlue Pressurewash Company and can be released to the technician.

Special Note about oil based stains: In order to produce a successful stain job - we have to set standards by which the products are applied. We have a production standard of a dry deck - of at least 3 days of dry weather -  then 30% rain or below during the day of production - and approx 12 hours of dry weather forward from the time the deck stain work has been completed. We set the same dry deck standard and 30% chance of rain standard on water based decks as well -  we allow more flexibilty for dry time on water based decks until the next rain cycle comes.

Special Note about ownership of materials: All materials relating to your job are purchased by AtlantaBlue Pressurewash Company are owned by AtlantaBlue Pressurewash Company. 

Special Note about our terms of payment: All payments are due - by check - upon completion of the work - on that day. Any other agreement must be placed in writing and agreed to by both parties 24 hours before production. If the opportunity is missed to pay us - you agree to make a check deposit to our bank account the following day before 5:00 pm in order to rectify the oversight. 

Special Note about payments on deck work: If the customer decides to opt out after the completion of the wash stage - and a check for 50% of the job has been deposited by ABP - no monies will be refunded.  ABP reserves the right to cancel our agreement with you if disputes arise. You will not receive any refunds in whole or in part.  

Special Note about your color and opacity approval process: Stain choices off of a chart are approximations.  There are many factors that go into making a choice such as the density/porosity and permeability of your wood - the inherant color and texture of the wood - the age of the wood - light conditions and finally opacity levels of your stain choice. Once you have made a color and opacity level choice and it is documented in writing and the stain has been purchased - we cannot make changes - we ask that you be available at the start of production to inspect the color on the handrails ( that's where we start first ). 

Special Note about oil based stains: oil based stains are one coat systems only - on dense smooth wood (  wood that has not been damaged by the sun )  stains can appear as a lighter wash - maybe showing some brushstrokes - on aged wood - the stain will fill in the valleys of the wood and appear darker - also we cannot apply second coats with oil - it will not dry - oil stains are meant to penetrate raw wood. Please understand before you make a choice that wood will take in stain on some boards unevenly - even on the same board. knots and end grain will repel stain as well. Expect some subtle modulation of color with a semi transparent stain. That's what makes it still look like wood when we are finished. Semi transparent stains are heavier bodied stains where you can see textural nuances of wood as if you were looking at a topographical map - but they're not clear stains. Clear stains do not last in the southern climate.
