BELOW ARE OUR TERMS & CONDITIONS OF SALE
Terms and Conditions
ORDERS DELIVERED BY OUR VANS
Deliveries are ground floor only and to level sites. Please check first that you have the correct size and design of door as per your Invoice and that there are no damages to any of the packaging before signing as 'received in good condition'.
Remove the protective packaging and inform us within 72 hours of any visual defects, the doors should then have a protective treatment applied once unwrapped (see 'EXTERNAL DOOR CARE' and 'INTERNAL DOOR CARE' below)
ORDERS DELIVERED BY CARRIER THIRD PARTY
Please examine doors before the driver leaves, as you will be asked to sign for the correct amount of goods IN GOOD CONDITION, the doors must be checked and if any damage is present the signed docket MUST BE NOTED AS DAMAGED, the carriers or ourselves cannot be responsible for complaints on condition or shortages after this event. It is not acceptable to sign ‘unchecked’. Any defects must be notified to ourselves at firstname.lastname@example.org within 72 hours of Goods received.
No claims of damage will be considered after this date. Some deliveries may arrive by pallet and are kerbside only delivery so it is advisable to have help to unload the doors from the pallet as some doors may require 2 person lifting. Some doors are available with a 1 or 2 man delivery service depending on region and quantity of doors, so if this is important then please check this is applicable at the time of ordering.
HEALTH & SAFETY
Due to the above regulations, when a delivery involves FIRE DOORS or EXTERNAL GLAZED DOORS, there must be help on site, as the handling of same requires two persons. If this is not adhered to, we will need to re-deliver the order, which will unfortunately involve additional costs.
In the case of collection by customer from our premises, goods must be examined before loading, as damage can easily occur while transporting goods in or on unsuitable transport. Cheques will be subject to 7 working days clearance.
CHECKING GOODS AFTER DELIVERY OR COLLECTION and BEFORE BOOKING YOUR CARPENTER
Prior to commencing any work on your doors, please check for faults: a bow of 4mm along the length of the door shall be deemed to be within the manufactured and BSS tolerances.
CHECK THAT YOU HAVE THE CORRECT DOOR, FRAME etc. AND THAT THE SIZES ARE CORRECT, ALSO THAT THERE ARE NO FAULTS
By fitting or finishing your door or making alterations in any way, we shall deem you to have accepted the goods supplied. We shall not be held responsible for any incidental work or expense arising out of or because of any defect in our product, or bad workmanship applied to our products.
In the unlikely event of our goods proving defective (Manufacturer’s defect only) which need replacement, our liability shall not exceed the replacement of faulty goods. N.B. Claims are unacceptable after work has commenced and any alterations have been carried out.
Doors should be kept dry and stored horizontally on a flat surface or three bearers. Always ensure that there is adequate ventilation and that the doors are not subjected to excessive build-up of heat, as this would lead to an imbalance of moisture content in the kiln-dried timber components of the door. This can lead to problems with the door at a later date.
Doors are sold as individual items and timber is a living product. Please enquire if doors are required as pairs, an additional charge for labour time involved for the matching of veneers, will be applicable if it is possible to accommodate the request. Remember that wood has many variations in grain pattern and colour variance and these cannot be accepted as a reason for exchange or rejection. All our doors are manufactured from timber which is from natural but sustainable material and is vulnerable if not properly protected from changes in temperature and humidity. If exposed to such extremes without suitable treatment, natural movement or distortion such as swelling, warping or splitting can and will occur. We take great care in supplying quality doors, but once the door leaves our premises, we obviously have no control over the conditions to which they are exposed and therefore no liability will be accepted where any problems arise from moisture ingress.
EXTERNAL DOOR CARE
To validate your warranty and preserve the appearance of all external doors and to give long and trouble-free service, our recommended treatment must be used on all our external doors, which is a minimum of: For doors manufactured with Mahogany type timbers we would suggest the use of one of the products from our 'Exterior Oils' range applied in accordance with our instructions.
For doors manufactured from Oak and timbers containing large quantities of tannin (e.g. Idigbo) we would suggest one coat of 'External Oak' (Virgin or Regency) and two coats of 'External Oak Protection' applied in accordance with our instructions.
It is of paramount importance that all external doors are completely sealed from moisture ingress before exposure to the elements. Remember; there is moisture in the air, and as soon as you unwrap your door it is exposed, even if it is inside your garage or home, so treatment must be applied as soon as the door is out of it's protective wrapper.
If a door is fitted before any treatment or protection, it will be ruined within a few hours when exposed to the elements. All timber doors must be finished in accordance with BRITISH STANDARD CODE OF PRACTICE. BSS 8000 PART 5 1990. Each finishing coat must be applied to all four edges, to both faces, inside all cut outs for locks, letter plates and hinges, inside all glazing rebates and around beading. Pay careful attention to exposed end grain including tops and bottom and the fielding of raised and fielded panels. These finishing applications must be made strictly in accordance with manufacturers instructions.
WATER BASED PRODUCTS are NOT SUITABLE for engineered doors
There must be some element of protection against UVB/UVA rays within the treatment.
IF PAINTING YOUR DOOR: Solvent based aluminium primer for hardwood must be used, which will seal the natural resin in the timber that can spoil your finished paintwork.
The same brand of finishing product must be used on all faces and edges of the door as recommended by the manufacturer, and not mixed with a treatex treatment to one side and painting to the other.
EXTERNAL DOOR FITTING
A) Reduce doors to fit equally from both sides, but not excessively, e.g. maximum of 6mm from each side. If you need to trim more than this please ask for advice on the correct choice of manufacturer.
B) Seal the door with 2 coats of treatment before your first fix, then remove the hinges, take off all ironmongery and coat every already treated surface with 3 top coats and bare timber with 2 base + 3 top coats, including all the cut outs before refitting.
The number of coats advised by the manufacturer is usually a minimum, it is therefore wise to exceed this if possible.
C) Fully seal glass rebates and backs of glazing beads prior to glazing on models supplied without glass but also…..(see D)
D) It is essential due the English climate to apply a bead of clear silicone to the glass where the glass meets the timber, before your final coat
E) Never fit mortice locks etc. at rail joints as this may seriously weaken them, use a minimum of three 4” hinges.
F) Always fit with a suitable weatherboard/bar regardless of frame cill type fitted, to prevent droplets of moisture travelling under the door and sitting on the bottom edge causing moisture ingress
G) To test the final finish you have applied to the door, spray with water, and if finished with 'treatex' products correctly as above, water droplets appear and just run off the door.
H) It is also essential to protect your door from direct sunlight and rain by means of a porch, canopy or similar construction.
I) Regular recoating of your door must be carried out as soon as the first sign of deterioration is noticed or every 3 years, whichever is the sooner.
This advice is to be read in conjunction with the treatment advice leaflets that will be inside the wrapper of your door.
INTERNAL DOOR CARE
All timber internal doors still require protection from the atmosphere e.g. central heating/ kitchen and bathroom Humidity. Remember; there is moisture in the air, and as soon as you unwrap your door it is exposed, even if it is inside your garage or home, so treatment must be applied as soon as the door is out of it's protective wrapper. Please read the instructions that are supplied with each door inside the wrapper, if by any chance there are no instructions please telephone the Sales Office. Both faces, all 4 edges and any cut outs for hardware must be treated with at least *2 coats of a good quality solvent based treatment such as treatex hardwax oil, 3 coats for steamy areas such as kitchens, bathrooms and shower rooms.
Where a pre-finished door has been purchased, it is only the two face edges that are coated, so all 4 edges will need treatment as well as any cut outs as described above*. Maximum 2-6mm trimming to each edge for standard doors (please enquire), but for FD30 fire doors only 3mm to each long edge and bottom edge, no trimming from the top. Some of our doors can be trimmed by more than 6mm (please enquire). But please telephone the sales office if you wish to use OSMO DOOR OIL Do not assume that if the door design you have appears in our website under the named range, that is the door you have purchased. We have many different ranges and suppliers with the same design of door.
If painting your ready primed door you may need to lightly sand the primer, if very smooth, to give a suitable surface for base and top coats. If un primed, a good quality solvent based Aluminium Primer for Hardwood must be used, which will seal the natural resin in softwood and hardwood that can spoil your finished paintwork. Then a good quality solvent based base coat and top coat must be applied, as recommended by the manufacturer, with a brush (we do not recommend rollers).
The Recommended stain treatment of treatex (see manufacturer website ) must be used to validate your guarantee period as stipulated at the bottom of all invoices.
A timber door must not be exposed to extremes of temperature or humidity prior to protection with recommended treatment.
Doors must not be hung or stored in damp or freshly plastered rooms, all new plaster needs at least six weeks drying out period.
All doors need finishing and should be sealed or primed prior to hanging. This advice is to be read in conjunction with the treatment advice leaflets that will be inside the wrapper of your door.
