OUR CONTRACT WITH YOU
After placing an order, you will receive an email from us acknowledging that we have received your order. Please note that this does not mean that your order has been accepted. Your order constitutes an offer to us to buy a product or products as advertised by us. All orders are subject to acceptance by us, and we will confirm such acceptance to you by sending you an e-mail or phoning that confirms that the product(s) has/have been despatched (the “Shipping Confirmation”). The contract between you and us (the “Contract”) is only formed when we send you the Shipping Confirmation. We will not accept orders for delivery to addresses outside the UK.
The Contract will relate only to those products whose despatch we have confirmed in the Shipping Confirmation. We will not be obliged to supply any other products which may have been part of your order.
If we decide not to accept all or part of your order, we will contact you to see if you still want the rest of the order. If you refuse part shipment we will arrange a full refund for your order.
You may, subject to the terms of our Returns & Refund Policy set out below, cancel an order at any time within 14 days, beginning on the day you receive the products. In this case, you will receive a full refund of the price paid for the products in accordance with our Refunds Policy set out below.
To cancel a Contract you must inform us in writing (email). You must also return the products to us within 14 days of cancelling, in the same condition in which you received them, and at your own cost and risk. You have a legal obligation to take reasonable care of the products whilst they are in your possession. If you fail to comply with this obligation we may have the right of action against you for compensation. It may not be economical to return some long products as carriage can be expensive.
This provision does not affect your statutory rights.
RETURNS & REFUND POLICY
If you return items that are not damaged and have just decided that you do not require them anymore within the period mentioned above and in accordance with the terms of our Returns Policy, we will process the refund due to you as soon as possible and, in any case, within 28 days of receiving the returned items. In this case, we will refund the price of the product in full, charged to you. However, you will be responsible for returning the item to us in its original condition and all postal costs or other costs incurred when returning the product(s).
If you return the product because you are claiming that it is defective we will examine the returned product and notify you of our findings and confirm whether you are entitled to a refund because the product was defective. Defective products returned by you within 28 days of you receiving them will be refunded in full, including a refund of the original delivery charges charged to you and the postal cost incurred by you in returning the item to us provided that a receipt for or evidence of such costs is provided. Defective products returned after the first 28 days after you have received them may be replaced or repaired, not fully refunded.
Some of our products are fragile. They must be checked when arriving by a courier service and if any part of the packaging is damaged should be signed for as “damaged”. Whilst every care will be taken to deliver the goods safely, inevitably some breakages may occur. In this event, we will replace the damaged goods. You must notify us in writing of any damage and when possible supply a photograph of proof of damage so we can claim from the courier or supplier.
We will not be held responsible for any refunds or compensation due to goods being held up in transit due to breakdowns, traffic problems, driver hours running out or any other reason. We never pay compensation for delivery days missed or goods being delivered late. All deliveries must be signed for by the customer. Customers must be aware that the goods are heavy and that assistance will be required to unload. Some deliveries are Hiab offload but not all. We do not promise Hiab offload but it may occur.
Hiab offload cannot be booked at this time.
All prices listed are subject to change without prior notice. In the event of a pricing error, if a product has been mistakenly underpriced, we will not be obligated to fulfil the order at the stated price. However, we will notify you promptly before dispatching the product, giving you the option to proceed with the corrected price or cancel your order. If we cancel your order due to a pricing error, your card will not have been charged. In the rare circumstance that your card has already been charged, we will provide you with a full refund. We strive to ensure accuracy in our pricing information, and we appreciate your understanding in the unlikely event of such errors. For any questions or concerns related to pricing, feel free to contact our customer service team for assistance. Your satisfaction is important to us, and we are committed to transparency in all aspects of your shopping experience.
SPLITS, KNOTS, & NOMINAL SIZES
Timber is a natural product and is susceptible to splits and cracks. Please endeavour to use these pieces whenever possible in the construction process. We will exchange any really bad splits and missing knots in the timber but there must be a modicum of common sense applied.
If any uplift and returns are required photographic proof must be emailed to us to assess the problem.
Our rough-sawn timber is provided by nominal sizes, and can vary slightly from this, the installer should confirm the sizes of products supplied and adjust builds accordingly.
LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
We shall not be liable to pay any compensation to you, for tradesmen who cannot complete the job because of lack of material, you should never book a tradesman until all the goods have been delivered and checked, other than any refund as provided above. In particular, but without limitation, we shall not be liable to you for loss of profit, damage to goodwill, any indirect or consequential loss or damage arising out of any damage, defect, negligence or other failing on our part.
Our liability for losses you suffer as a result of us breaking this agreement or any other duty owed to you (if any) is strictly limited to the purchase price of the product.
Nothing in these terms shall limit any rights you may have as a customer which are not capable of being lawfully excluded or limited, nor shall it exclude or restrict our liability to you for any death or personal injury resulting from our negligence.

DECKING CALCULATOR & GUIDE
ABOUT THE CALCULATOR RESULTS & GUIDE
The decking calculator takes the customer inputs and provides a list of products that could be used to build a deck by the dimensions and options submitted. The decking calculator guide is intended to provide an explanation as to why the calculator has provided the list of products that it has and to give a rough guide as to how these products might be used to achieve the dimensions of decking input.
You are free to make changes to your order after adding items to your basket from the calculator, however, modifications to this generated list may render any information in the guide provided by the calculator to be no longer applicable to your requirements.
We endeavour to make the information as accurate and helpful as possible but give no guarantee that it will provide accurate or safe information for your specific project. The results generated are approximate and based on the information provided by you. Variations in project conditions, construction methods, and other factors may affect the actual quantity of materials required. It is the nature of these jobs that there may be some materials remaining after the job is complete. It is not our responsibility to uplift and credit any lengths that are left over. We would always advise that such extra lengths are kept aside to be used as spares in case of future repairs.
The product list and guide produced by the calculator are provided for informational purposes only. The use of the calculator and guide is at your own risk, and we accept no liability for direct, indirect, special or consequential damages.
LOCAL LAWS, REGULATIONS & PLANNING PERMISSION
The purchaser or installer of any deck or handrail using information from the calculator and guide must: check and abide by all local laws, regulations, building codes, and planning permissions required for their specific location and project as well as ensure that the construction is carried out in a safe and legally compliant manner.
We accept no responsibility for any legal, safety, or planning issues that may arise due to non-compliance with local laws and regulations. The purchaser or installer must verify the accuracy and suitability of any statements in the guide or products suggested for their project and make adjustments to their plans accordingly.
We recommend that you consult with a qualified professional or contractor to assess your specific project needs accurately. Such professionals can consider site-specific variables, local building codes, and other factors that may impact your decking project’s requirements that are not covered in the decking calculator.
The decking calculator formula is built on the basis that the deck is to be used for residential use, building a deck from the guide for commercial use may invalidate any potential manufacturer commercial warranty.
The decking calculator makes no guarantee that the guide will comply with any manufacturer warranty, it is the responsibility of the purchaser and installer to make sure any decking, handrailing or any other product is installed correctly in accordance with the manufacturer warranty. Warranty information, manufacturer installation information, local laws, regulations and common sense should take precedence over any difference in suggestions from the decking calculator.
