All orders are subject to our terms and conditions which are available on our website

The plan/drawings form the basis of the installation services, as such you must ensure that you are happy with any changes the fitter makes to the proposed plan and that such changes are clearly identified on the plan before you agree to it. You agree not to approve the changes to the plan until you are happy with them.

If you are not happy with any of the fitter's proposals for supplementary work or any changes made to the proposed plan you should contact your designer at the showroom as soon as possible. Any alterations can then be discussed with timelines that may affect the project and an agreement reached.


We will endeavour to complete the installation services as soon as possible but time for completion is not of the essence of this Contract and we will not be liable for any reasonable delays.

If during the installation services, it appears that the walls are incapable of holding the Products or the utility connections are unsafe, faulty, flawed or of poor quality, we reserve the right to suspend the installation service until the necessary remedial works have been completed. This does not affect our right to take the full payment for the Products and installation services in line with our terms & conditions.

We shall not be responsible for or liable for any damage, loss or expense caused due the poor quality of or fault with any of the walls or utility connections.

Whilst we will try to ensure our fitter(s) keeps dust and disruption to a minimum during the provision of the installation services, you should take all reasonable and necessary steps to minimise the impact of the installation services, for example by moving breakables/delicate items and covering areas likely to be affected with dust sheets. Whilst the fitters will endeavour to clean up after themselves, you should expect some dust to result from the installation services and you agree that we will not be liable for any cleaning expenses resulting from such dust.

Minor damage may occur to decor, plaster and tiling during the installation services but you agree that we will not be responsible for redecorating or making good any damage unless it is as a result of our negligence rather than an unavoidable consequence of having the products fitted.
