Our product warranty

  To the extent allowed by law (such as the Fair Trading Act 1986 and the Consumer Guarantees Act 1993,) we give only the following warranties in respect of the products sold by us to you.  We do not provide you with recommendations or advice on the products.

We provide a warranty only against manufacturing defects in the products which result in them not being of acceptable quality, having regard to their type and price and the information about the products provided by their manufacturers.  If they provide instructions, recommended uses, applications, warnings, and application and installation information for the products, you are responsible for reading and following them.  A failure to do so may result in damage which is not our responsibility.  We give no guarantee or make any representation as to the effectiveness of the products because the results achieved will depend on the condition, age, amount of use and maintenance of the items on which they are used.

If there is a manufacturing defect in the product you must return the product to us at your cost in its original packaging, if possible, with an explanation of the defect and the circumstances in which it has arisen.  At our cost, and our option, if we consider that the warranty is breached, we will  obtain a prompt product replacement from the manufacturer or if we are unable to do so we will  refund the product purchase price to you.  Nothing in these terms of sale limits or excludes any other implied legal rights that you may have.
