Where items are defective or not compatible, additional material & fitting costs will be incurred to rectify the situation.
9. Plastering & Rendering:
9.1 When rendering or plastering a chimney breast or false constructed chimney breast/’media wall’ some small shrinkage cracks may appear after drying. Inset fires that abut a plastered wall can be prone to plaster “crazing”. We will undertake to return once to rectify this at our own expense but if it re-occurs, we would suggest some modification to the surrounding area. Neither skirting board replacement or re decoration, are normally included in our quotation of works, unless specifically included. We cannot be held responsible for any damage that may occur to the customers’ existing fireplace, decor, plaster, or skirting board around the installation. The Company will not re-fit skirting boards, coving, or carpets as these are specialised skills.
10. Marble/granite & limestone fitted.
10.1 As marble/granite is not naturally fire resistant, the higher the temperature reached the more likely the marble/granite will crack. By slabbing the marble all we are doing is reducing the amount of heat reaching the marble. By cutting the marble into three pieces we are introducing expansion joints, which reduces the possibility of the marble cracking, however in no way does this make marble heat resistant or crack-proof. We as a company cannot accept any claims for any slabbed panels and hearth cracking after installation.
THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS DO NOT AFFECT YOUR STATUTORY RIGHTS.
