SPECIFICATION OF GOODS
It is your responsibility to ensure that the tile selected is suitable for the purposes that the goods will be used for and that quantities have been verified prior to installation.
Check all paperwork to ensure all details match your requirements. We consider any payment as acceptance of the exact details as listed on your order.
You agree that tiles may have one or more of these characteristics – variation in colour, texture, patterns, shade, crazing, marks, and blemishes, size variation and optical hazing. Sample tiles and showroom displays are to be used as a guide only and may vary from actual tiles received.
Optical hazing can be evident in polished and semi polished materials. It is an occurrence that presents itself as a smoky or smudged finish on the tile. It may only be visible depending on the light source reflecting at various angles off the surface of the tile. It is not considered a fault and we will not accept any claims in relation to this.
We will not be responsible for damages caused for incorrect cleaning / sealing methods or cleaning products used on the material.
Nominal sizes are quoted on your quote and invoice (this is the approximate size). We cannot guarantee the exact size of each batch noted on your order.
Natural stones and encaustic tiles require specific care, cleaning, grouting, sealing and ongoing maintenance requirements. Check with consultant + trades prior to purchase as claims can’t be made once laid.
Consideration should be given to the finish of the material chosen in relation to pedestrian traffic. Gloss tiles and light coloured tiles will require the added protection of appropriate door mats and only soft soled shoes at entry points should be considered in residential applications to avoid excessive abrasion.
Always install heavy coverings over newly installed material to offer protection. No claims can be made for items scratched or damaged during installation.
Most tiles can be slippery when wet. Select a tile that is appropriate for the area and consult with your certifier or specifier prior to installation of goods to ensure the correct items have been selected for the area. Once laid we cannot accept claims for incorrect selection of goods or slip results that don’t match your requirements. If you have received slip results for particular materials, it is possible that the performance of the installed materials is less than the test results due to such factors as installation, wear and tear and cleaning method.
