6. The Goods
6.1 The Seller may from time to time make changes to the specification of the Goods which are required to comply with any applicable safety or statutory requirements, or which do not materially affect the quality or fitness for purpose of the Goods.

6.2 Where samples are submitted these are drawn from bulk and are representative of the whole and no guarantee can be given that every item will be the same in all material respects as the sample.

6.3 The Seller can give no warranty that the Goods conform to sketch plans or drawings provided to the Seller by the Buyer.

6.4 The Seller accepts no liability for inaccuracies in estimates or calculations of measurements and quantities given to the Buyer.

6.5 The Buyer will unconditionally fully and effectively indemnify the Seller in respect of any claim, cost or expenses, losses or demands resulting from infringement of copyright, design, trademark or any industrial or intellectual property rights resulting from the Seller’s use of designs or specifications supplied by the Buyer or its experts.

6.6 Whilst the Seller tries to ensure that its website contains accurate information, the Seller cannot guarantee nor (to the extent permitted by law) does the Seller warrant in any way that the information on the website, including but not limited to descriptions and depictions of materials, colours and styles, is up-to-date, complete, accurate, reliable or error-free.

6.7 All designs, samples, drawings, descriptive matter, specifications and advertising issued by the Seller, including (without limitation) all images, designs, descriptions or illustrations on this website, are issued or published by the Seller for the sole purpose of giving an approximate idea of the product described.

6.8 The colour of images on the Seller’s website may be limited by the availability of images, colours or shades or by the technology which is used by the Buyer to access this website. Different PC monitors and browsers also provide different shades and colours. Therefore, although the Seller strive to achieve the best image quality and clarity on this website, the Seller cannot guarantee that any images, colours or shades will look the same on every PC monitor or browser that the Buyer use.

6.9 All works undertaken by the Seller have a + / - 2 millimetre margin for error per cut. All timber reacts differently when cut. When undertaking work on a Buyer's Goods, the Buyer accepts that unforeseen variations in the timber may result in minor breakouts or machine marks. In order to minimise any possible effects of this, the Seller may, at its discretion, chose to modify or amend any cutouts or sizes as it sees fit to best deal with the situation. Further, where necessary, the Seller may use filler in order to repair such damage. The Buyer accepts that it is these variations in density and hardness of timber are a natural part of the product, and not the fault of the Seller. Naturally, the Seller warrant that it takes all reasonable steps to avoid damage of this, or any other nature. In certain circumstances, flaws and faults within the timber may be exposed during the manufacturing process. The Buyer accepts this is a natural feature of the timber, and not the fault of the Seller. The Seller will do their best to remedy the situation but cannot be liable for any defects exposed in this way.

6.10 For colour matching, the Seller will require a swatch or sample of Buyer’s decided colour. The seller will then then get this colour-matched and a sample will be sent out for sign off by the Buyer. Whilst every effort is made to ensure colour accuracy, the Seller cannot guarantee to absolutely match any colour due to the difference in paint sheen level, however as close a match as possible is achieved.

7. Delivery and collection
7.1 The Seller always makes every effort to deliver goods within the delivery option requested at the time the order was placed. However, the Seller cannot guarantee this, and the Seller will not accept any liability if your order is delivered outside any previously agreed time or date. The Seller recommends that the Buyer only arrange for tradesmen to carry out work on your behalf after your goods have actually been delivered. The Seller will not be responsible for any losses incurred for late delivery no matter howsoever caused.

7.2 The goods will be delivered to the delivery address provided by the Buyer. If delivery is unsuccessful due to either: -
(i) An inaccurate or incomplete delivery address;
(ii) No-one being present to accept delivery; or
(iii) Inaccessibility;
then, once another delivery date is arranged, the Buyer will be charged additional delivery charges for each attempted re-delivery.

7.3 Delivery of the goods is deemed to have taken place when the goods have been offloaded at the nearest accessible point to the delivery address, which in many cases will be the property kerbside. Delivery any closer to the property will be at the driver’s discretion. The Buyer agrees that there will be someone competent available to help with the unloading of goods, and warrants that any helpers are suitable for the unloading process and The Seller will accordingly not accept any liability for any injury arising from any delivery. Goods can be extremely heavy, and it is the Buyer's responsibility to ensure the designated helpers are strong enough / fit enough to help with the delivery.

7.4 If agreed between the parties the Goods may be collected by the Buyer. Collection of Goods must take place within seven days of the agreed collection date. Thereafter the Buyer will incur storage charges at the rate currently applied by the Seller. Details of such storage charges may be obtained by the Buyer at his request from the Seller.

7.5 Upon collection of the Goods the Buyer shall be solely responsible for the size, weight and positioning of any load on his vehicle and shall fully indemnify the Seller against any claims or action arising there from.

8.1 All joinery supplies should be kept by the Buyer in a dry place, and if supplied in white should be primed or stained immediately upon receipt. Any subsequent cut surface must be primed or stained before fixing in position. Further decoration and any future maintenance of the Goods must be completed as soon as possible by the Buyer using a reputable system in accordance with the manufacturer’s recommendations. The Seller recommends that the Buyer employ only the services of qualified and experienced tradesmen for installation.

8.2 The paint used for fully finished items is an exceptionally durable interior paint, however as a specialist paint it takes up to three weeks to fully harden, so the please handle them very carefully during this period. The darker the colour the slower the paint hardens, so please be very careful with these. Once the three weeks have passed then the doors will be fully cured and thoroughly exceed the standards for the highest certification for interior kitchen use.

8.3 Primed only goods have two coats of stain resistant primer and they are sanded between coats. A final light sanding on site is recommend for a smooth finish.

Problems associated with natural wood products are not covered in anyway including movement, cracks, shakes, moisture etc. Natural variations in the colour or texture of wood are not to be considered as defects. Hairline cracks in Painted Doors occur due to movement in the timber, which is a natural occurrence due to the nature of the wood. This movement will be increased depending on moisture and humidity levels and temperature levels, therefore any hairline cracks that may develop are not considered a defect.

9.3 Where the Buyer wishes to return the goods to the Seller, the Seller shall accept return of the goods subject to the following:

9.3.1 Notification being given by the Buyer to the Seller within 48 hours of delivery of the goods;

If the goods are not faulty, the Seller will return them to the Buyer, however, the Buyer will be required to cover the Seller’s reasonable postage costs.
9.3.5 Refunds will be made within 30 days of receiving notification that the Buyer wishes to return the goods to the Seller.

9.4 The Seller is under no obligation to exchange goods ordered by mistake or incorrectly.

9.5 If an exchange is necessary, this will be arranged without unreasonable delay and without charge. Replacement goods will not be dispatched until the original goods have been received and checked by the Seller.
