Terms & Conditions


  1. All Computer Aided Design (CAD) images you have been supplied with are only a visual representation of your room and its products. They are not intended to be, nor are they, an exact likeness.


  1. The payment structure is issued on your quotation. When placing your order, you agree to conform to the payment structure and any delay in making these stage payments may cause the installation programme to be deferred or suspended, and may incur costs.
  2. All products and materials remain the property of the company until the balance is paid in full.
  3. Should you instigate a delay in installation during the process, the payment structure issued to you at order stage withstands.
  4. Any requested additional works will be charged at £72 per hour (inc. VAT) plus materials, or a separate quote will be supplied for an alternative installation.


  1. Due to tile or flooring cuts and patterns, styles and sizes, quantities of tiles are estimated only. In the event additional tiles or flooring are required these products will be charged as per your original quotation.
  2. In the unlikely event that you encounter a problem with any product supplied, please contact us immediately.
  3. Your quotation lists all products to be ordered on your behalf and by signing the acknowledgement you are agreeing to the quantities and items ordered. Therefore, if changes or additions are required after the order is placed, this will be treated as a new order for which payment is required and may not arrive within the timescale of the original order.
  4. Any ‘Special Order’ products will be pointed out to you during the quoting process. These products are made individual to your specification and as such we are unable to accept any changes, cancellations or returns if the manufacturing of the order has been processed. This does not affect your statutory rights.
  5. If an non-‘Special Order’ item is ordered and you later decide it is not required, an invoice will be raised to cover the manufacturers re-stocking fee (normally 25%) and any collection or delivery charges.
  6. In the unlikely event you experience any product related problem after installation you MUST contact us first. Failure to do so will invalidate your guarantee. For the avoidance of doubt, we will not be liable for any third-party costs unless we have expressly agreed to them in writing (an email from us being enough in such circumstances).
  7. Product cleaning guidelines must be followed to ensure longevity of use. Aggressive
    cleaners will cause damage to the chrome long term and void any manufacturer
    warranties. Replacements can be installed during the processing of the tests and a refund will be issued should tests confirm the product is faulty.


  1. Any product delivered to your home and noted by you as damaged MUST be reported to us within 72 hours of delivery and will be dealt with under the manufacturer’s warranty. A sound replacement will then be sourced as swiftly as possible.
  2. We shall have no liability to you in respect of any delay or failure to deliver a product due to circumstances beyond our reasonable control, including (without limitation) delay or failure caused by adverse weather, strikes or transport problems.
  3. We will dispose of anything left in the bathroom, so please ensure before we arrive that you remove any fixtures or fittings you wish to keep or reuse.
  4. We will take reasonable care however, during the removal of your old bathroom there is a chance while removing old tiles and loosening old plaster that the vibrations may cause cracking to other walls close by. If this does happen, we’ll repair the area ready for you to arrange suitable re-decoration. During this process, and throughout the installation the utmost care will be taken to ensure that the risk of damage is minimal.
  5. Our installation works inevitably create dust, and although we take steps to keep this to a minimum, it cannot be totally avoided, and can pervade through a home. We suggest that all ornaments, pictures etc. are tidied away during the period of works.
  6. We will need to easily access your water tanks and get above the bathroom itself to install any extractor fan or lighting. It is your responsibility to ensure such access is clear and safe for us to enter. In the event you are unable to achieve this we will do so on your behalf. This clearance work is charged for at the hourly rate of £40 (ex VAT). This will be an extra charge, not included in your original quotation.
  7. Measurements are taken from your original space and we cannot be liable for any
    changes in size caused by the removal or extensions which cause additional space e.g. lowering of floors, extending ceilings, bricking up a window etc. Should additional work be required due to these changes an amendment to the original quote will be required. You are required to inform us of these changes at least 7 days before install commences.
  8. If we have ordered products on the basis of dimensions provided by an architect’s
    drawing (e.g. an extension), we will do our best to check-measure the finished walls.
  9. If the speedy completion of works require us to order ‘Special Order’ products prior to this check-measure, then the costs of changing the specification/products will be charged accordingly. We therefore suggest that you ask your builder to inform us at the earliest possible opportunity if he is not going to be building to the exact proposed dimensions.
  10. We will take reasonable care when we lift floorboards, but there is a possibility that the plaster on the ceiling below may crack and, in some cases, leave fixings visible, like nails and screws. If this does happen, we’ll repair the area ready for you to arrange suitable redecoration. Again, during this process, and throughout the installation the utmost care will be taken to ensure that the risk of damage is minimal.
  11. During installation, flooring in high traffic areas are always protected with a sticky plastic covering, unfortunately there is no such protection for walls. We will always take the utmost care when in your home, however minor damage, such as chips or scuffs, may occur. If this does happen, we’ll repair the area ready for you to arrange suitable re-decoration. Please make us aware of any fixture/fitting that is valuable and we will take steps to protect it.
  12. Where possible we conceal all pipework in the walls which creates a clean and
    professional finish to your room. As this detail increases the risk of damage to nearby walls, should you wish to avoid this possibility altogether please let us know prior to work starting. We will then either leave pipe-work visible, fit pipe-boxing and likely use surface mounted shower-valves.
  13. When installing a shower booster pump, pump manufacturers require a minimum of 50 gallons stored water to prevent the pump running dry. In the event you have insufficient capacity in your water tanks to support the use of your required pump we will quote to provide this additional capacity, if required, during installation. In the event you do not wish to have this work carried out, we will be unable to install the shower booster pump.
  14. While we are working within your home, we will need to close water supplies. If your isolation valves, such as stopcocks, are poorly maintained and have ceased to open or close, they will need to be replaced for work to continue. These will be priced separately as an extra charge, not included in your original quotation.
  15. You are advised that extensive works and/or modernising of your room could lead to problems with your heating system particularly if it is old and/or poorly maintained. You are required to provide us with information about your heating system e.g. age, maintenance dates and type of system, before work commences to try to avoid issues when re-filling the system following works carried out. Any modifications or upgrades to your heating system required to eradicate any problems, are not included in your original quotation; but will be quoted for separately.
  16. If walls are having extensive (i.e. thick) plastering work carried out, we will need to allow sufficient drying time before tiles are added. We will advise you accordingly in the event this becomes an issue or should an extension in estimated finish time be required (this additional time will be exempt from our £100 overage promise). We require our drying times to be adhered to in order for our guarantee to remain valid.
  17. We will use grey grout between tiles, unless you’ve specified otherwise prior to us starting work.
  18. When installing your lighting it is likely that our electricians will have to remove loft insulation. This insulation will be left off after lighting is installed in order to prolong the life of the bulb and prevent overheating.
  19. All of our electricians are fully qualified and NIC registered, and in order for them to signoff works carried out on your property they have to conform to wiring regulations (17th edition). If you require any additional works these will be priced separately e.g. insufficient earthing or no RCD protection on the board. Please remember that regulations are there to protect you and your family.
  20. We always use the very best tile adhesive and although flexible sometimes cracks can appear in grout lines (only applicable on wooden floors), due to natural movement. We allow for this by ‘plying’ the floor and using flexible adhesive as standard. In such circumstances we cannot guarantee that cracks will not occur.
  21. If carpets are lifted then re-laid, they can sometimes have a baggy look about them,
    although this should settle down after a week or so. In the event they do not resettle, we advise you to employ the services of a professional carpet fitter who will stretch them in to place correctly.
  22. In the unlikely event you experience any workmanship related problem after installation you MUST contact us first. Failure to do so will invalidate your Workmanship Guarantee. For the avoidance of doubt, we will not be liable for any third-party costs unless we have expressly agreed to them in writing (an email from us being sufficient in such circumstances).
  23. All due care and consideration will be made to ensure safe keeping of pets but you are responsible for ensuring that measures are in place to safeguard them from injury or escape. We cannot be held responsible if an accident or escape occurs.
