TERMS AND CONDITIONS

SUPPLY OF STONE

Stone is a natural product which varies in colour and will contain markings, small holes, fissures and flaws, some of which may be artificially filled and therefore: unless otherwise agreed in writing this is not a sale by sample and no warranties can be offered to match material from a sample and any subsequent order of the same stone will not come from the same batch; colour and veining differences are to be expected as stone is a natural product.
Selection of material to supply to the Buyer will be at the discretion of Stone Design London unless agreed in writing to the contrary.
Selection of material by the Buyer from a batch, where agreed in writing will attract a premium cost.

The supply of samples is at the discretion of Stone Design London Ltd. and a charge may be applicable.

Flooring calibrations are nominal. A variation of +/- 3mm in thickness is normal and variance outside this range may occur. Stone Design London cannot take any responsibility for measurements outside this nominal calibration.

PERFORMANCE OF STONE

Natural stone is liable to staining. Although it can be impregnated with a substance to increase resistance to staining, it is not stain-proof and in particular cannot be protected against etching from acidic substances. We highly recommend that the material is treated periodically with a similar product to maintain this resistance. Stone should be professionally installed and any chemical treatments applied in accordance with manufacturer’s instructions for optimum performance.

It is for the Buyer to decide if the material is fit for their purpose and no warranty is given by Stone Design London Ltd. unless agreed specifically in writing as performance of different materials will vary in different circumstances,(e.g. outdoors, a swimming pool or as a kitchen worktop). Buyer should arrange testing independently to verify suitability for their own project before they purchase.

It is the Buyers responsibility to ensure that all surfaces and substrates are prepared and adequate for the stone flooring or products with regard to movement, weight or any other structural issues. Any advice given on these matters by Stone Design London is general and subject to the further approval of the Buyer’s professional advisers.

QUOTATIONS

All quotations or estimates are valid for 30 days and are based on information supplied.

The Buyer is responsible for confirming that the calculated square metre requirement is correct. Stone Design London Ltd. cannot be held responsible for insufficient or surplus amounts being delivered resulting from unconfirmed requirements.

We may charge for additional visits required that are the result of the customer not complying with our template/installation process where applicable.

Lead times are approximate, from full and final instructions, the receipt of a deposit and subject to selected material arriving and performing as expected.
Key dates if changed may mean that the company cannot guarantee to adhere to initially planned/agreed timescales with regard to supply, manufacture, delivery or installation.

Quotations will be dependent on accuracy of information provided and clear and legible instructions. Any drawings sent to us for the purpose of a quotation must be fully dimensioned, accurate and to scale. Stone Design London cannot be held responsible for inaccuracies resulting from omissions or inaccurate information from the Buyer. Later amendments must be in writing and may attract a penalty.

DELIVERY

Any dates quoted for delivery are made in good faith and will be adhered to as far as possible, however time for delivery shall not be of the essence.

INSTALLATION

Programmes for installation are issued assuming that preparation works have been completed. Delay resulting from a lack of preparation from the Buyer or their agents may result in charges on a daily basis.

Where delay is caused on the part of the Buyer, there is no guarantee that the fitter will be available for the later date and charges may be made if no other work is available for the fitter for the allotted period.

Programmes for installation are created in good faith and Stone Design London Ltd. cannot be held responsible for delays caused by unforeseen circumstances.

Any fitting charges are based on using a standard two man team assuming good and level access from the point of unloading to the final fit position, unless agreed otherwise in writing. Any variation to this is not only likely to incur additional charges but is likely to result in amendments to previously planned or agreed timescales.

Protection of stonework during and after completion of works, is the responsibility of the Buyer, unless otherwise agreed in writing.
