26. 'Made to order / Bespoke' items are not returnable. They will be replaced or repaired but only if the product is manufactured to the wrong specification, size or deemed to be faulty by the 'manufacturer' or 'supplier'. The specification & measurements are those confirmed, by the 'customer', at the time of order and are the 'customers' responsibility that they are correct and that the 'products', they have ordered, are fit for purpose. No replacements or repairs will take place if the 'customer' has ordered incorrectly.
Most fireplaces, fire surrounds, back panels, hearths and inserts are not supplied with manufacturers fitting instructions. The fitting of a full fireplace requires a competent installer who is familiar with the various options of building work required to suit each individual installation. We strongly recommend using the services of a installer who has experience of fitting fireplaces as each installation will vary. We will not be held responsible or accept any liability for fires & fireplaces that have been installed incorrectly or poor workmanship.
Certain fireplaces are made from natural products including marble and stone. These natural stones are formed over millions of years and as such are prone to fossils and other natural inclusions such as open veining and pitting caused by air pockets. These features are of no detriment to the fireplace and have been deemed acceptable by the manufacturer.
