Terms & Condition


“Change Order” refers to a written amendment to the Quote executed by Customer and American Chimney Contractor.

“Contract” collectively denotes these Terms of Service (these “Terms”), the Quote (if one is issued by American Chimney Contractor), any purchase order acknowledgment (if one is issued by American Chimney Contractor), and Customer’s purchase order (except to the extent it conflicts with these Terms, the Quote, and/or the order acknowledgment).

“Customer” refers to the individual or entity to which an American Chimney Contractor is selling Products or Services under a Contract.

“Products” encompasses the equipment, products, parts, materials, supplies, and other goods provided by American Chimney Contractor under the Contract.

“Quote” is the statement from American Chimney Contractor identifying the Products and/or Services, along with quantity, price, delivery schedule, and/or other terms and conditions (in addition to or different from these Terms), offered for sale to Customer, including any Change Order.

“Services” denotes the repair and other services agreed upon by American Chimney Contractor under the Contract.

Scope of Terms

These Terms govern the Products and Services provided to Customer by American Chimney Contractor, and are considered incorporated by reference in each and every Quote. Any additional or different terms or conditions or purchase order in any form delivered by Customer to American Chimney Contractor are rejected. By accepting delivery of the Products or engaging American Chimney Contractor for Services, Customer agrees to be bound by and accepts these Terms unless a separate agreement is signed by both Customer and American Chimney Contractor, in which case it will govern and supersede these Terms. These Terms and the Quote together form a binding contract between Customer and American Chimney Contractor. All purchase orders and Quotes are subject to these Terms, whether or not stated explicitly. In case of conflict with any Customer purchase order or other Customer terms, these Terms will prevail. These Terms are effective as of the date stated in the earliest accepted Quote or, if no date is stated, the date upon which Customer is deemed to have accepted a Quote (the “Effective Date”). Any proposals, negotiations, and representations made by American Chimney Contractor prior to the Effective Date are superseded by these Terms. Provisions that should apply beyond their terms will remain in force after Contract termination or expiration.


Customer agrees to pay American Chimney Contractor the amounts specified in the Quote for purchased Products and completed Services, including taxes. Unless the Quote specifies otherwise, all payments are due upon Service completion without set-off or discount. Upon Quote acceptance, Customer agrees to provide American Chimney Contractor with credit card or bank account information (the “Customer Payment Information”), kept on file for authorized charges after Service completion. Late payments incur interest at the lesser of 1.5% per month or the highest permissible rate under applicable law, calculated daily and compounded monthly. A $35.00 fee applies to returned checks. Customer reimburses Priddy for collecting late payments, including attorneys’ fees.


Customer is responsible for all sales, use, excise taxes, and similar charges imposed by any federal, state, or local governmental entity on amounts payable under the Contract.

Zoning and Permits

Customers must provide necessary information for American Chimney Contractor to secure plans and permits for Services. Customer ensures Service compliance with zoning, building codes, laws, and regulations. Costs for Services not in the Quote but required by authorities for compliance are Customer’s responsibility. The American Chimney Contractor assumes no responsibility for zoning violations.
