7.2. Please note we are unable to guarantee an exact colour match on different rolls. If an exact colour match is required, please contact us at the time of ordering and we will do all we can to help. An exact colour match is especially hard to achieve when different widths have been used, or the flooring has been ordered at different times.
7.3. All pile carpets, especially plain grounds are liable, after they have been in use for some time, to shading, i.e. to show light and dark patches. This is due to uneven pressing of the surface by treading. Light and delicately shaded carpets are liable to become soiled with wear & tear and it may appear the colours have faded. Both tendencies are inherent in all pile fabrics and we cannot therefore accept any responsibility for complaints arising from either of the causes.
7.4. All dimensions are in accordance with British Standards 3665 (1974) +/- 1.25% in width and/or length.
