Before we start your web design project, we determine and agree on how many pages are required for your website. This is called a ‘Sitemap’. Should you need to add more pages, categories or functionality to your site other than those supplied to you in an agreement, you will be supplied with a revised quote to cover of the work.
It is your responsibility to supply all web page information, content and images by the agreed date unless it is specified that we will do it for you. Late submission of information, content and images may affect the website completion date but it does not affect the Final Payment due date listed in the agreement supplied to you.
Content supplied after the completion date will be entered into the website as and when it is convenient to do so and may be charged at $80 per hour.
No additional pages may be added during the website build outside the agreed scope of work known as the Sitemap.

Website Design Guarantee
6 Month Fix It Free Guarantee - On handover, your website is guaranteed to work as agreed for 6 months. Should your website stop working due to an error on our behalf, we will fix the issue at no extra cost.
Website Design - Before your site is built, we provided visual designs to illustrate how your site will look on a desktop computer. All of our sites are designed to be responsive which means the website layout will adapt to fit the browser device window such as iPhone or iPad. The only exception to this rule is the Internet Explorer browser which doesn’t recognise responsive web design and will display your site as a regular website.
No Hidden Fees - We provide all costs up front. Future operating system upgrades and extension upgrades usually form part of our Web Admin Package which costs $240 for a four hour block. Website maintenance such as operating system and extension upgrades should be carried out every 6 six months and are done so at your request. Some extension upgrades may need to be purchased specifically for your site. If this is the case you will be notified first.
Website Life - Your website will be built for the latest version of the Joomla Content Management System. Joomla and its extension developers periodically release upgrades to improve functionality and improve security issues. Due to the nature of Joomla’s Open Source operating system and third party extensions constantly being upgraded we cannot guarantee operating system & extension updates will be available for your website.
It is recommended that you renew your website every 2-3 years to ensure you are using the latest operating system and extensions. This would also allow for a re-evaluation of your sites content, purpose & SEO strategy.
