We recommend that you keep your order number, which can be found on your order confirmation email or on the delivery packaging, as you will need it as proof of purchase in the event of any after-sales queries.

Effects of cancellation

If you cancel your order, we will reimburse to you all payments received from you, including the costs of delivery (except for any supplementary costs arising if you chose a type of delivery other than the least expensive type of standard delivery offered by us). We will refund any postage you pay to return a product only when the product is faulty or damaged, not when a product is simply unwanted.

We will make the reimbursement without undue delay, and not later than:

(a) 14 days from the day you return any goods supplied if dispatched before cancellation, or provide evidence that you have returned them; or
(b) if there were no goods supplied, 14 days from the day on which we are informed about your decision to cancel this contract.

We will make the reimbursement using the same means of payment as you used for the initial transaction, unless you and we have expressly agreed otherwise; in any event, you will not incur any fees as a result of the reimbursement. We may withhold reimbursement until we have received the goods back or you have supplied evidence of having sent back the goods, whichever is the earliest.

If the goods were dispatched, you shall send back the goods without undue delay and in any event not later than 14 days from the day on which you communicate your cancellation from your order to us. The deadline is met if you send back the goods before the period of 14 days has expired.

Returning Online Orders

Please ensure you return your unused goods, as sold, with all the original packaging and labels within 28 days of purchase. Items must be returned as they arrived for protection. We also suggest you obtain a proof of posting certificate or use a traceable postal service with the appropriate level of compensation, should you be concerned that your parcel maybe lost or damaged in transit to us.

The goods should not be damaged in any way.

You are only liable for any diminished value of the goods resulting from the handling other than what is necessary to establish the nature, characteristics and functioning of the goods.

We do not accept responsibility for any goods returned to us that are damaged or lost in transit.

PLEASE NOTE: All returns of non-faulty products are returned at the customer’s cost. There is no need to contact us prior to returning your goods.

Please also note that you will be responsible for the costs of collection in the event that our carrier is used to collect any items from you to return to us

Short or damaged deliveries must be notified within 5 working days of receipt. Deliveries must be checked for damage prior to signing the Carrier's delivery note. No complaints shall be entertained if the Carrier's delivery note has been signed as "received in good condition".

We recommend obtaining product samples prior to ordering especially in the case of window rubbers, edging trims and replacement inserts as products that are ordered and cut to your specification cannot be returned.  Non-stock items that are manufactured to your order cannot be returned unless faulty and with prior arrangement. This does not affect your statutory rights.
