If you intend to incur any expense in relation to the blinds (e.g. if you employ a fitter to install your blinds, or if you want to decorate a room corresponding to the blind), we advise you strongly not to incur such expense or make such arrangements until you have received your order, and that you have checked that all the components and blinds are complete and undamaged. This will give us time to address any problems you may have before the installation day. We will not be responsible for any costs you incur in relation to the blinds, other than as set out in the section “Our Liability”.
10) Our Guarantee
We warrant that all goods sold to you will be free from defects in material and workmanship for a period of 12 months from delivery of the goods to you.
As your sole remedy for any breach of our guarantee above, we will either (i) repair or (ii) replace your blind free of charge with a product of similar quality and specification - providing the goods have not been modified, misused or been treated negligently by you or on your behalf. This does not affect your statutory rights.
Notwithstanding the generality of the foregoing, please note that wood is a natural product and there may be some colour and grain variation between slats. Over time there may be a mellowing of colour depending on exposure to the sun. You may find that the surroundings will effect the way your blind reacts as the slats can absorb and release moisture, especially in steamy environments such as kitchens/bathrooms and extreme temperatures. A small amount of warping could be experienced and as it is a natural condition of wood this would not warrant a replacement blind or repair to a blind.
You will need to have contacted us via email/telephone or in writing at the address given on our contact us page, giving us full details of the fault. Calls cost 5p per minute from a BT landline, other service providers and mobile operators may vary. This is not a premium rate number.
Any dispute as to the quality of the product would need to be supported with a professional independent report (along with photographs), explaining why you believe the blind is defective.
11) Cancellation and Returns
We reserve the right to cancel your order if we have insufficient stock to deliver the goods you have ordered or if the fabric you have selected has been discontinued. You will be informed by email and offered an alternative. If these are not suitable then a full refund of the blind in question will be re-credited to your account within 30 days of your order and the order will be terminated. We will not be obliged to offer any additional compensation for the disappointment suffered.
