Terms & Conditions
Shade and Size Variations
Due to the nature of tiles, shade and size variations occur from batch to
We will always endeavour to supply your orders from one batch to ensure
consistency. You are advised to view the current batch available before
For subsequent orders, for example when quantities for a project have
been underestimated, we will endeavour to supply you with the same
batch again. However, this is not always possible, and you are advised to
allow for 10% wastage when calculating quantities, in order to avoid shade
and size variation problems. Surplus, full boxes of tiles can be returned in
accordance with our Returns Policy.
Please check your tiles carefully prior to fixing for shade and size variation,
which may include dry laying. If you are not happy with the shade of your
tiles, we cannot accept responsibility once they have been fixed; fixing to
a substrate means that you have accepted the tiles in their present state
so no refunds or replacements will be available.
If you have any questions regarding shade and size variation, please ask
a member of the team.
We will offer a full refund if you return full, unopened boxes of tiles within
14 days from the date of purchase.
Between 14 days and 28 days, we will offer a credit note for the return of
full, unopened boxes in our sole discretion. The tiles will need to be the
same shade as our current stock.
No goods will be accepted for return unless they are presented together
with the original invoice or receipt.
