2. Claims and Warranty:

To be considered for credit, the customer must verify the material immediately upon delivery and report any product damage or discrepancy to GLOBAL STONE within 24 hours of delivery, before installing, cutting, or otherwise altering the material. 

 

Upon delivery of order please inspect the product for damages during shipping. All damages must be noted on the delivery receipt if there is any damage to the product. Photo documentation must be provided. Please report any product damage or discrepancy to GLOBAL STONE within 24 hours of delivery, before installing, cutting, or otherwise altering the material. 

 

Upon delivery/receipt, examine the amount, color, shading, quality, finish, thickness, bevel, and correctness of the material. Since natural stone is a natural product, no two pieces are identical. Fossils, shading, veins, pits, and fissures variations are all natural stone characteristics. Porcelain, pottery, metal, and glass are all man-made, but there are differences from one batch to another. Crushing, felting, pilling, flaking, fluffing, shading, soiling, and watermarking of carpet piles are not considered manufacturing defects and claims will not be considered. Due to the dyeing process, there may be some color difference between the sample and the finished product.

3. Warranty Voided:

Always examine the Product, Tile & / or Stone PRIOR to installation. Adjustments cannot be made once the product, tile or stone has been installed. Installation constitutes acceptance of materials. We will not be held responsible for costs associated with removing or reinstalling materials. Install from a few boxes of each color at a time to ensure an optimal blend from the production run. Observe all product, tile & stone installation standards. These protocols are specific to types of materials (tile, glass, stone, etc.) & to the conditions on the jobsite.

 

After the material has been cut, changed, or placed, GLOBAL STONE will not accept claims for any reason. Prior to installation, the customer must dry-lay all goods. Natural stone goods should also be sealed with a high-quality penetrating sealer, according to the sealant manufacturer's specifications. GLOBAL STONE does not provide a sealer but do sell the product separately. Specific installation queries or concerns should be directed to an installation specialist. GLOBAL STONE disclaims all liability for improper installation.

4. Prices may be changed at any time without further notice:

We reserve the right to change our product's prices at any time without further notice.

Selection of an experienced installer is the Customer’s sole responsibility. The Customer should consult with a professional installer to determine the best installation procedure for their project.
