TERMS OF SERVICE
XForce Web Designs provides a full portfolio of projects for you to review before ordering our services, to ensure that you are comfortable with our design style. The design process for your website begins with a short questionnaire, which will help us get an idea of your style and preference for the design. Once we receive your payment and the completed questionnaire, we will begin working on your project. Once the initial design is sent, you’re allowed unlimited revisions on the design while the website is still in development. Once you’re satisfied with the design and overall website, we will transfer the website to your hosting account to make it live. Once a website is transferred to your hosting account, the design process is complete.
The average build time for a general website is 2-4 weeks, however, the actual build time may vary based on factors such as complexity, communication, additional requests, and unforeseen circumstances. Your project will be started on the first business day (Monday-Friday excluding national holidays) after your payment has been received. If your project needs to be rushed, you must contact us before ordering to see if we can accommodate your timeline. Rushed projects will be subject to an additional cost based on your timeline and requirements.
We offer communication through email, phone, and sometimes instant messaging. We prefer email and usually answer all emails within 24 hours, but please allow up to 48 hours before sending a follow up. We prefer email communication as it allows us to work more efficiently and keep track of our conversation history, however, you can call us anytime during our normal business hours. When working on a project together, it’s your responsibility to make timely responses as well. If after one month of no communication on your end, your project will be considered abandoned and will be archived. If you would like to resume your project, there will be a fee of $160 that must be paid prior to resuming work on your project.
