TERMS & CONDITIONS OF SALE
Please note that the following Conditions of Sale should be read in conjunction with the “Finishing, Care & Maintenance Instructions” which can be found within our brochures, on our website and within the packaging of all our doors.
CHECK YOUR GOODS
From the point of delivery by us or collection you have 3 working days to check your goods.
Within 3 Days You Must:
- Detail any damage you observe to the packaging of the goods or to the goods themselves on the delivery/collection note.
- Check that the goods delivered match your order exactly including the size ordered.
- Remove all packaging and check every delivered/collected item for damage and/or manufacturing faults. Do not assume that a perfectly wrapped door is in perfect condition.
It is important that you thoroughly check your doors for any of the following potential faults, prior to commencing any alterations AND BEFORE BOOKING A TRADESMAN:
- Visible damage i.e. scratches, dents or chips.
- Warping or bowing beyond a 6mm tolerance.
- Scratches on glass (if supplied).
- Wrong door model or size supplied.
- Two odd doors supplied where the order specified a matching pair.
The above are examples of potential faults/errors but this list is not exhaustive.
Please also note that our Factory Pre-Finished Doors should not have any visible defects or damages when viewed in natural daylight from a distance of 0.5 metres or above. In rooms where there is no daylight scratches should be viewed in artificial light from a fixed wall or celling outlet NOT from portable equipment such as a torch. (As per N.H.B.C. guidelines).
DO NOT THROW AWAY THE “Finishing, Care & Maintenance Instructions” LEAFLET WITHIN YOUR DOOR’S PACKAGING.
This provides critical information and instruction for whomever is preparing or fitting your door and guidance to ensure you will remain happy with your door in the coming years.
If your delivery has been made by courier please note that once you have signed the receipt confirming that the goods have arrived in good condition, we are not able to progress any claim for damaged products. We cannot proceed with a damage claim if you have written “Unchecked” on the Delivery Note; you MUST thoroughly check the entire delivery before signing as accepting the goods. A courier delivery is made by a third party to the kerbside and will require on-site labour to move the doors into the house/ site. Delivery by Todd Doors’ liveried vehicles is made to the ground floor of the property.
Please Note: by fitting, finishing or making any alterations, the doors will be deemed to have been accepted as supplied. No claims – either relating to damage or faulty manufacture - will be entertained on any product that has been altered in ANY way. It is up to YOU, the customer to check the goods NOT the person fitting the products.
STORAGE & INSTALLATION
- Ensure prior to fitting that all doors are stored in a cool, dry atmosphere and kept flat.
- Only fit Internal doors internally.
- Only fit External doors externally.
- Ensure doors are not hung in damp or newly plastered rooms and exercise caution when fitting on newly screeded floors or when the doors will be exposed to extremes of heat or humidity, i.e. conservatories, close to radiators, inside double-glazed porches etc.
- Doors fitted on kitchens and bathrooms should be well-ventilated to prevent prolonged periods of exposure to moisture.
PLEASE NOTE: WE WILL NOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE CAUSED, FOR EXAMPLE SPLITTING, CRACKING ETC., IF DOORS HAVE BEEN HUNG AND NOT PROPERLY PROTECTED FROM MOISTURE PENETRATION.
