7. PRODUCT QUALITY

7.1 All photographs are provided as an indication of product appearance only, as lighting conditions, screen calibration and natural variances may affect the appearance of the product. Natural stone products may vary in colour and texture and will contain individual markings and natural imperfections. These include, but are not limited to mineral depositswhich may change over time as the minerals oxidise and can appear as copper, bronze or black colouration or quartzite veining. Reconstituted (manmade) stone products contain natural aggregates and these may vary in colour and texture between batches.

7.2 Efflorescence (white markings) may appear on the surface of concrete paving as a result of a chemical reaction between cement and water. This is a natural phenomenon and will gradually disappear with weathering. Efflorescence is a characteristic of good quality paving with high cement content.

7.3 Sizes quoted are nominal and may vary in accordance with manufacturing tolerances. Sizes quoted may vary by +/- 5mm. The thickness of calibrated paving may vary by +/- 4mm. The quoted sizes and coverage shown on our website are achieved when using an average 10mm pointing joint. Sawn edged flags may include minor variances and irregularities. The surface of hand-cut paving may delaminate slightly.

7.4 As paving may vary between packs and batches, ensure that products are mixed from each pack to achieve a blended overall appearance.

7.5 Ensure all paving is checked for damage and defects prior to laying as we will not be held responsible for any associated costs of uplifting and relaying. 7.6 Many products will weather over time and this may appear in the form of gradual fading (mainly manmade paving) and lichen/ organic growth discolouration in certain environmental conditions. Areas close to trees or planting borders may be prone to discolouration and require cleaning. This process can often be reduced by sealing the paving, however seek the manufacturer's guidance prior to application.

7.8 The suitibility of a product for your required application will be your resposibility.

7.9 All complaints must be received in writing. We will deal with the matter in accordance with your legal rights.
