Joinery:
Timber is a natural material and is susceptible to swelling and staining. Once timber products are installed/delivered to site the client is responsible for taking measures to prevent such problems. Grady Joinery recommends that all factory finished timber products are treated with two coats of quality oil base stain/paint. This will help reduce the amount of moisture that may be absorbed by timber. Grady Joinery will not accept any responsibility for timber movement (i.e. warping, swelling etc.) or any damage caused as a result of this movement. Please refer to timber information leaflet. (Available on request)
Glass:
Owing to the high insulating property of the windows and glass, you may experience condensation on the outside of the glass. Certain climatic conditions and localised atmospheric conditions may result in external condensation on some windows but not on others. This is in no way indicative of a defective unit.
Toughened glass is used as standard where there is safety glass requirement, on oversized panes and the centre pane of triple glazed units. Toughened glass is an excellent product; however its optical quality is not as high as the glass from which it’s produced. In general it has a wave like appearance, may shiver and its surface is more susceptible to abrasion than non toughened glass.

Visual quality:
Our toughened glass and insulated glass units are in accordance with European standards EN12150 and EN1279 respectively. For the avoidance of doubt glass is designed for looking through and NOT looking at. A defect must be visible whilst being observed at right angles and at a distance of 3 meters and not in direct sunlight.

Timber Production Process:
Laminated/engineered timber is widely used in the company’s production process. This involves the joining of two or more pieces of timber to make a single component which leads to a stronger component and reduces the risk of warping. All products are dipped in a water based primer and then sprayed with water based high build stain as standard. Variations in grain and texture in the timber may become more apparent after the spraying process. As this is normal and a natural feature of timber products:
Grady Joinery will not accept liability for claims in respect of :-
Variations in grain and texture within that component or product.
The fact that actual engineered joint may be visible upon close examination
Slight surface scratches/indentations that can be removed during the subsequent client aftercare process.
Where you return a Product to us because of an alleged manufacturing defect, we will examine the returned product and advise you as to our view of the reason for the problem. If it is accepted that there is a manufacturing defect we will notify you of your refund or replacement via e-mail within a reasonable period of time. We will usually process the refund due to you as soon as possible and, in any case, within 30 days of the day we confirmed to you via e-mail that you were entitled to a refund for the defective Product. Products returned by you because of a defect will be refunded in full, including a refund of the delivery charges for sending the item to you and the cost incurred by you in returning the item to us.
