We will then despatch the goods to the address provided at the checkout page.

5.1. The price payable for goods that you order are as set out on our website. 5.2 You may be required to pay extra for delivery and it might not be possible for us to deliver to some locations. Our delivery charges and restricted delivery areas are fully detailed in our delivery information.
6. NATURAL PRODUCTS
We endeavour to display as accurately as possible the colours and sizes of our products on our website, however, as our products are produced from natural stone, each batch is unique. An allowance should be made for +/- 5mm to cover natural variations in the dimensions specified for sandstone and slate products, +/- 2mm for granite paving and +/- 10mm for cobbles & setts. If you are concerned about an item’s colour, texture or finish please email us at [email protected] or call our customer service team on 01206 700 599 for further details. Please see our Installation Guide for all the best practices for laying a patio. This is provided in order to help prevent any issues within the laying process. We always recommend seeking advice from an industry professional who can assess the specific needs of each project before work begins. Nustone.co.uk or Nustone Products LTD does not take any responsibility for the incorrect advice, incorrect installation of materials supplied or for any faults found in products after installation.
For further information on variations in natural stone, please see the information on our website here.

7.2. Please read our returns policy.
7.3. If your goods have been dispatched before you cancel your order, you can arrange for collection by Nustone.co.uk where a collection charge will be applicable, or alternatively return the goods at your own cost. Nustone.co.uk must be made aware of any damages to the goods before you return the goods. Any damages to the goods which have not been declared will be deducted from a final refund amount.
7.4. Once you have notified us that you are cancelling your contract, any sum debited to us from your credit card will be recredited to your account as soon as possible and in any event within 30 days of your order, excluding any initial delivery charges, return charges, re-stocking fee or goods returned to us that are not in a resellable condition.
8. CANCELLATION BY US
8.1. We reserve the right to cancel the contract between us if:
8.1.1. we have insufficient stock to deliver the goods you have ordered;
8.1.2. we do not deliver to your area; or

We will not be obliged to offer any additional compensation for any disappointment suffered.
9. DELIVERY OF GOODS TO YOU
Please read our delivery information.
10.1. If the goods we deliver are not what you ordered, are damaged, defective or the delivery is of an incorrect quantity, we shall have no liability to you unless you notify us in writing at [email protected] highlighting the issue within 72 hours of the final delivery of the goods in question. The burden of proof is on the customer to prove the item is not of satisfactory quality and a second opinion from an independent party may be necessary to provide this evidence. Should this be due to any fair, wear and tear, misuse or accidental damage, the trader cannot be held liable.
10.2. Due to the long distances that our products travel, some damages can occur. If the product you purchase is damaged or faulty, we may offer an exchange or refund as appropriate in accordance with section 10.4.1., 10.4.2. and 10.4.3. If the goods have arrived damaged, we ask you to sign for them as “damaged” on arrival. It is important for you to inspect the delivery before signing. If the delivery note is not claused, we are unable to process any claim for breakages. Once delivery has taken place, we recommend that you open a claim. You can see how to do this here.
10.3. Nustone.co.uk will not refund or replace tiles or slabs that fall under the minimum of 5% of acceptable loss. This should be taken into account when placing your order as we advise that 10-15% should be added to your order to allow for wastage and cuts.
10.4. If you do not receive goods ordered by you within 30 days of the date on which you ordered them, we shall have no liability to you unless you notify us in writing at our contact address of the problem within 40 days of the date on which you ordered the goods.
If you notify a problem to us under this condition, our only obligation will be, at our option:
10.4.1. to make good any shortage or nondelivery;
10.4.2. to replace or repair any goods that are damaged or defective; or
10.4.3. to refund you the amount paid by you for the goods in question in whatever way we choose.
10.5. Save as precluded by law, we will not be liable to you for any indirect or consequential loss, damage or expenses (including loss of profits, business or goodwill) howsoever arising out of any problem you notify to us under this condition and we shall have no liability to pay any money.
10.6. Notwithstanding the foregoing, nothing in these terms and conditions is intended to limit any rights you might have as a consumer under applicable UK law or other statutory rights that may not be excluded nor in any way to exclude or limit our liability to you for any death or personal injury resulting from our negligence.
11. AREA CALCULATION
The m² coverage listed for each product page reflects the total area that you can expect to cover using the stone, including the recommended joint widths for spaces between the slabs. This is to help give a realistic figure of the area that the product will cover once laid and will help customers to place their order accurately.
The total area coverage of the stone alone can be calculated using slab measurements and quantities. Whilst every attempt has been made to provide you with the ability to accurately calculate the coverage ordered, we recommend that customers double-check all area calculations prior to completing the order. Nustone cannot be held responsible for under or over-ordering.
Unless otherwise expressly stated in these terms and conditions, all notices from you to us must be in writing and sent to our contact address at [email protected] and all notices from us to you will be displayed on our website from to time.
13. EVENTS BEYOND OUR CONTROL
We shall have no liability to you for any failure to deliver goods you have ordered or any delay in doing so or for any damage or defect to goods delivered that is caused by any event or circumstance beyond our reasonable control including without limitation, vehicle delays, strikes, lockouts and other industrial disputes, breakdown of systems or network access, flood, fire, explosion or accident.
