- 1.1 - The information contained on this website is for general guidance only.

- 1.2 - Computer screens cannot be relied upon to accurately replicate colours. All screens vary and, unlike a painted wall, are backlit. We therefore strongly recommend that you take advantage of our free colour samples. In most cases the images online will work for most people if it’s a white or off white, but with darker colors especially, it would be best to request a sample before ordering. Since it is not possible to guarantee our online colors will look the same on all computers, we do not guarantee that what you see accurately portrays the color of the actual product and therefore cannot be responsible for these differences.
2 - Pricing
- 2.1 - In the event that a product is listed at an incorrect price due to typographical error or error in pricing information, the company reserves the right to refuse or cancel any orders listed at the incorrect price, whether or not the order has been confirmed.

22 - Company Installations
- 22.1 - A home survey is non-refundable and compulsory unless a disclaimer is signed giving permission to fabricate according to the measurements provided by the customer.

The company do log all calls and will always leave a voice-mail message if possible. If the company has not been able to make contact after these attempts, then the responsibility is on the customer to make contact with the company’s head office to arrange the appointment.

- 22.5 - Following a home survey visit the customer will be emailed an order confirmation for their approval within 2 working days.
- 22.6 - It is very important that the customer checks and fully understands the details in the order confirmation before signing off and making payment against the order. Whilst the company will accept liability for any errors in the determined sizes, it is the customer’s responsibility to ensure all other details are correct. For example, if an order quotation is generated for a green door, and later it is decided that blue is preferred (be it before, during, or after the survey visit) this will need to be updated on the order confirmation BEFORE it is signed off.
- 22.7 - During the survey, the surveyor will only ask the customer basic questions relating to the order, such as which side they want the hinges to be on, and whether the door should open inwards or outwards.
- 22.8 - It must be made clear that a door or window can open in a variety of different ways. The surveyor will note down the customer’s requests and relay them back to the company’s processing department. Whilst the company will make every effort to meet the customer’s requests and update the customer’s order (where possible), the responsibility remains with the customer to ensure they have checked and understand all aspects of the order confirmation, and sign-off is correct, before proceeding. The company should be contacted should there be any queries.
- 22.9 - After an installation has been carried out by one of the company’s installation teams the customer will be asked to sign to say that the installation is correct and to the customer’s satisfaction.
- 22.10 - It is the customer’s responsibility to determine whether planning permission is required for the goods installed. The company will not be liable for any costs, expenses, loss, or claims for compensation, or any other liability arising directly or indirectly as a result of the customer not obtaining planning permission approval prior to installation.
- 22.11 - If a fault is reported, a survey may be required. Any fault due to mechanical breakdown or poor workmanship will be repaired or replaced free of charge within the guarantee terms
- 22.12 - If there is no fault present, or the fault is due to excessive force or misuse, or the fault falls into the "fair wear and tear” category, there may be an attendance charge of £95+VAT. Please see the guarantee for full details
- 22.13 - During a survey the aperture will be measured according to what is available, and the surveyor cannot anticipate any additional works still to be carried out on the property. For example, the company is not able to fully survey partly-built openings, therefore if the company is requested to attend in this case it is the customer’s responsibility to advise of any future planned work so that this can be taken into account. This also includes any making good (plastering, trimming or rendering) required. This information will be relayed back to the customer at the time of sign-off, and must be agreed before production can commence
- 22.14 - If after a mutual time and date has been agreed between the company and the customer for an attendance at the customer’s property, no one is found to be at the property, surveyors will wait for up to 20 minutes before aborting the visit. At this time, the appointment will be deemed a ‘failed attendance’ and will need to be rescheduled. Failed attendances may be subject to a charge of £95+VAT, payment of which will be due before any further visits can be arranged and agreed.
- 22.15 - A height surcharge may apply if your door or window is not on the ground floor. In the case of fire door installations, these are often on 1st, 2nd, 3rd floors etc.. In this case there may be a height surcharge applied if a suitably sized lift is not available on site due to the extra man power required.
23 - Cooling Off
- 23.1 - The customer has the right to a 14-day cooling off period after placing their order, in which they can cancel free of charge. This would however slow down the bespoke order fulfilment process by 14 days. Therefore, to avoid this delay, by agreeing to these terms, the customer is giving consent for the work to begin straight away (this ensures there is no delay to the customer’s order). If the customer does not wish to give consent, they should not place an order.
- 23.2 - If a customer would like for the cooling off period to apply, they should make this explicitly clear by stating: "I want my cooling off period to apply" in the additional info box at time of order, as well as to email the company immediately after placing the order. This will result in a 14 day fulfillment delay.
