This is an example of a tempered glass scratch waiver; the IWCA cautions that your own legal counsel should review all of your contracts and waivers.
Tempered Glass Waiver
Releasing Window Cleaner From Any Liability On
Tempered Glass Scratching During Cleaning
Due to widespread problems with poor quality tempered glass scratching during construction window cleaning, INSERT COMPANY NAMEwill not be liable for any scratches on any tempered or heat strengthened glass.
It is accepted and understood by ALL parties that properly used razor blades and scrapers are standard tools and techniques for construction window cleaning and can safely remove limited amounts of construction debris (plaster, paint, texture, tape, stickers, etc.) from quality glass, without scratching the glass surface.
Furthermore, it is accepted, the use of razor blades and scrapers will be employed on all
construction window cleaning and no other cleaning method will be offered by INSERT COMPANY NAMEto remove construction debris from any glass surface.
If Builder does not choose to have window cleaner use razor blades or scrapers, Builder must cover all glass during entire construction process, which would protect glass from any construction debris and eliminate the need for INSERT COMPANY NAMEto use razor blades and scrapers to clean the glass.
This clause must be included on all contracts. If this clause is not acceptable, there is no contract between INSERT COMPANY NAMEand Builder.
