Carpet Fault Exclusions
Shading and pile reversal
Carpets and rugs lend them self to pile pressure ie in deep pile carpets you may see foot prints in walkways this is normal and not a faulty, as is flattening of pile in high traffic areas which can cause shading of colour.
Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee against the effects of normal use. Pile will flatten more quickly in areas of heavier use, particularly in walkways and in front of chairs. In some carpets this will be more noticeable than others. This is not a fault and will not affect the durability of the carpet.
Some rugs and carpet do fade a little with time, if in strong direct sunlight, this effect can be stopped ie please do not put a rug or carpet in direct sun areas.
The carpet and flooring colours shown on our web site are accurate as we can get. However colours can appear different on different PC monitors as settings may not be exactly the same lighting in your house. Please order samples to confirm colours and inspect the carpet in the lighting of your own home. Dye batches can also vary and therefore it may be possible that your carpet does vary very slightly from the sample..
Clause 3 BS 3655 ( 1981 ) A slight tolerance on all roll materials of +/- 0.25% is allowable so please be sure to add more than enough extra material.
