6. DAMAGES TO GOODS
6.1 The Buyer must notify the company in writing of any shortages and/or damages to Goods within 48 hours of delivery. After that time, the Goods are deemed to be ‘accepted’ by the Buyer thereafter the Company will not be liable for any claims for shortages and or damages.

7.1 If the Company are unable to accept your order, we will inform you of this in writing and will not charge you for the Goods. This might be because the Goods are out of stock, because we have identified an error in the price of description of the Goods or because we are unable to meet a delivery deadline you have specified.
7.2 The Buyer is entitled to 7 days from delivery of Goods during which they may return unwanted Goods to the Company. Any items accepted for cancellation or return will be subject to a handing/restocking charge which for some suppliers could be in excess of 40%. Goods that have been delivered into the warehouse, from the supplier, awaiting delivery to the Buyer, will also be subject to a restocking charge. In this instance, the Buyer must inform the Company in writing of their intention to cancel the designated products within 14 days of payment.

7.7 The Company will not be responsible for any damage or loss arising during the return transit of the Goods. It is the Buyer’s responsibility to take all due care to ensure that the Goods are protectively packaged.
7.8 Tiles are non-returnable. This is because they cannot be re-sold due to small differences in finish between batches. We will always allow for 15% wastage when calculating the amount of tiles required. This is standard practice to allow for installer cuts which inevitably result in wastage. Any left-over tiles will not be refunded.
8.1 Where the Buyer is using their own installer any problem relating to the install of the products should be taken up with the installers and is not the responsibility of the Company. For example, if a product is installed incorrectly or not according to the manufacturer’s guidelines, the Company is not liable for the cost of replacing the products or re-installing them.

The Company will not be liable for the cost of removing and re-installing goods that were faulty or damaged, where the problem could have been discovered prior to install.
8.3 Where the Buyer is using an installer recommended by the Company, while we will only ever recommend installers we have worked with for years whose work we know to be of high quality, the Company is not in a position to be able to offer any type of guarantee or be held liable for their workmanship as we have no formal business relationship with any recommended installer.
8.4 Where the Buyer is using an installer recommended by the Company, we will charge an installation deposit to hold your position in the installer’s customer list.
8.5 Installation of Goods constitutes acceptance. If the Buyer changes their mind after installation the cost of replacing the Goods is incurred by the Buyer.
8.6 In the event that the Company provided faulty Goods but the fault is not discovered until after installation of the Goods and could not have been discovered on examination on delivery the liability of the Company shall be limited to replacing such faulty Goods free of charge and paying the reasonable expenses of installation of the replacement Goods provided that the Company shall have first been offered the opportunity of itself paying out for such installation work.
8.7 It is the Buyer’s responsibility to ensure that any installation using Goods supplied by the Company complies with all statutory water and building regulations.
8.8 It is the Buyer’s responsibility to discuss preferences regarding the final aesthetic with their installer before work begins e.g. tile lines and layouts, recess heights, height of boxing. Otherwise, the plan is as agreed and accepted by the Buyer as part of the design process.
