22.When installing certain boilers we will need to remove balanced flues and then brick up the existing hole in order to accommodate the new round flue for the new boiler, when we brick up the hole we will try to get as close as match as possible to the existing wall surface. It is often not possible to get an exact match and the customer will be deemed to accept this.
23. When installing certain boilers we may need to drill a new flue hole. We will seal the old flue hole with your permission using a suitable building material but the customer accepts that the finished surface is their responsibility.
