When quotation specifies material to be furnished by the Purchaser, ample allowance must be made for reasonable waste and material must be of suitable quality to facilitate efficient production.

RETURNS: No returns will be allowed on carved, curved, flexible or custom mouldings, non-stock mouldings, doors, custom millwork or special order items. All material must be clean, uncut and resalable. No returns will be allowed on painted, primed, or finished materials.

CLAIMS: All claims must be made within three days of receipt of goods. All claims must be made prior to installation. No claim will be considered after installation.
