Actual sizes may differ slightly to those advertised.
It is the customer’s/fixer’s responsibility to ensure that the correct method & products are used for fixing, sealing, cleaning their tile/stone/glass/b-room supplies/UFH & suitable grout/expansion joints are used. Prior to fix protective wax/film must be removed from tiles and mosaic sheet if present. We advise not to brick bond tiles and if you decide to no more than 15%. We advise dry laying before fix. As we are not professional fixers of tile/stone/glass/b-room supplies/UFH and do not offer or seek to offer that service any advice given by us is in an impartial non-contractual manner & We are not responsible for any works carried out. Fixing of the tiles constitutes acceptance of their quality & acceptability.
Tiling should be carried out by a skilled operative, who has been trained to a level of competence, certified by a recognised authoritative body, such as the TTA.
CPT accepts no responsibility for orders that are either under or over supplied from customer's own measurements/diagrams. Natural Stones will vary in colour & calibration from shop display & are more susceptible to wearing. They will vary from tile to tile. Tiles are not guaranteed as being frost proof.
Please note that as is common with bright solid coloured tiles optical hazing & light effect discolouration illusion can occur dependent upon certain light conditions caused by both natural & artificial lighting even when tiles are from the same batch & are of the same shade therefore please ensure that you are satisfied with the desired effect & blending of colour to ensure you have a harmonious finish prior to fixing the tiles by pre-laying the tiles before the final fix as once fixed the supplier cannot be liable for costs.
All orders must be collected within 2 months. Delivery times can be subject to change & are purely best estimates. We advise not to book fixers until all tiles have been received and checked by customer/fixer. CPT is not responsible for consequential or 3rd party loss. Upon collection/delivery all shortages & breakages must be reported within 24 hours. Cancelled orders /Returns must be returned to the depot within 14 days of date of purchase & are accepted at the discretion of the management of the company & if accepted will be subjected to a re-stocking charge of 30% of the original sales value. You must present us with original receipt as proof of purchase and we must currently have stocks of that product & its shade/batch. Only full, unopened/undamaged boxes can be returned. We do not take back any grouts, adhesives, sealers, cleaners, any tile treatment / fixing products due to not knowing the conditions that they have been kept in and therefore their suitability for re sale purposes. Refunds-we reserve the right to recuperate any errors in amounts.
All Discounted Items, Deposits & Special Orders are non-refundable. All goods remain the property of CPT until full payment is received & cleared. Credit Notes will expire unless used within 6 months. Accounts must be settled as terms agreed.
We may offer the service of a subcontracted kerbside delivery if the customer requests this. The deliveries are sub contracted & classed as kerbside only, meaning they will be delivered to the nearest safe and easily accessible point on or near your property and we have no control over the drivers or the vehicles & have no responsibility for accidental damage to property or personal injury claim and anything such like must be addressed to the contractor. It is the customer's responsibility to ensure that there is suitable & safe access. The driver will not be able to move the products you have ordered. As our deliveries are made using a pallet truck and our pallets are very heavy we are not able to deliver pallets on to gravel driveways or soft surface such as grass or soil. We can only deliver onto hard, level, smooth surfaces such as concrete or block paving. When your delivery arrives always check that you have received the correct products and that you are happy with everything while the driver is still on site. If the delivery environment is deemed unsafe or the access is not adequate the goods will not be delivered, and the customer is liable for the costs that ensue. All damages or shortages must be reported within 24hrs. Delivery times can be subject to change & are purely best estimates. Due to unforeseen circumstances hauliers and couriers at times cannot complete delivery at the specified date. The failure to deliver on the arranged date does not account a breakage in the contract between the buyer and seller and there is no entitlement to damages or compensation. The customer or a dedicated representative of the customer must be at the point of delivery.
We will endeavour to resolve any complaint in a fair & reasonable manner & as quickly as possible. No claim will be accepted after 6 months of receipt of goods & any claim for faulty goods must be made within 6 weeks of receipt of goods.
