Every effort is made to accurately show the colours of the natural stones. Each tile is unique and as such there may be variations in colour and texture. Once the tiles have been installed they will be deemed to be accepted and we cannot be held responsible for any colour or shading variations.
(We strongly recommend that you order a minimum of 10% extra tiles for damages e.g.in transit, site handling and cut wastages, as per industry norm for the tiling industry. At least 15% extra should be ordered if your room is an awkward shape.We recommend that you keep several extra tiles as spares in case of accidents or future renovation work.)

Damage during Transit:
Goods must be inspected upon delivery. If there is visible damage, you must mark ‘Damaged’ on the delivery note and nothing else. Customers must inform us immediately if any of their goods have been damaged during haulage. We will organise replacements immediately as long as they have been signed for as damaged and we have the stone in stock. If the goods are signed for as in “good condition” and later found to have been damaged by transport, we cannot make any claim against the haulier and we will not be able to replace the damaged goods “Free of Charge”. We will only replace damaged tiles if the total amount is greater than 5% of the total order. Photographic evidence of any damage will be required to aid with any insurance claim against the haulage contractor.
No claim whatsoever will be entered into after 48hrs of accepting delivery of damaged pallets (goods). All other complaints other than delivery damage must be reported in writing within five working days of receipt of goods.
