Terms & Conditions
Paramount Stone Specialists aim to provide the highest level of customer service to both our direct and trade customers. We take pride in the fact that we always do our best to be open and honest with our dealings, and keep the small print to a minimum. However, we do outline our terms and conditions below.
Quotes are given to you based on the dimensions, layout and material requested by you. Any changes or inaccuracies with this information will result in the quote being reviewed and a price difference is likely to occur.
It is advised to use our own fitting and templating services for products that we will manufacture. When templating, we ask that the customer or their authorised agent is present to agree all items. If there are any necessary adjustments you will be informed and asked to confirm these and the price before manufacturing can begin.
Terms of payment
The preferred method of payment is by either debit card or internet bank transfer.
A minimum deposit of 50% will be taken when the order is made. The balance should be paid on the day of completion of work.
For supply only, or supply and delivery 100% of the payment will need to be made, when ordered.
All material supplied by Paramount Stone Specialists will remain the property of the company until full payment has been received.
On orders that are cancelled before templating the deposit will be refunded less a £30 administration fee.
On orders that are cancelled once templating has been completed the deposit will be refunded less £100.
If material has been ordered upon cancellation a restocking fee will be applied.
Once manufacturing has begun, the deposit can no longer be refunded.
Delivery and delays
If delivery is requested without fitting, the order will only be delivered to your front door, if you require the order to be placed in your house, please state this when ordering.
In the unlikely event of unforeseen delays, we cannot be held responsible and cannot accept any liability for losses incurred due to delays.
If we have to make an extra journey due to no one being available at the arranged time and place of delivery, we reserve the right to charge for additional costs. If we come to template and the kitchen is not ready as previously stated we reserve the right to charge additional costs for the wasted journey. This also applies if units are moved after templating as second templating visit would be required.
Much of the material we use is natural, and therefore we cannot guarantee the colour or pattern, natural variation will occur as they are inherent to the stone’s character and part of its attractiveness. The surface will show some pitting and crazing in certain lights as it is of a crystalline structure. Engineered stone such as quartz is subject to minor batch variations.
Worktops and units
Please be aware that it is essential for the unit that the stone will be placed on to be structurally sound and able to hold the weight of the material. Paramount Stone Specialists will not be liable for failure of carcasses to support the worktops, nor for joint breakdown or dropping of worktops where the carcass movement is the cause. Granite or Quartz worktops cannot be used as structural elements to reinforce the in integrity of supporting units.
