The responsibility of the fence line remains with the customer.

It must be remembered that timber and bamboo are natural products and will be subject to movement and weathering as they season.  It is not uncommon for small splits to occur (called shakes) in timber when drying and warping when timber is allowed to dry too rapidly.  These will normally go back when the humidity rises.  This is nature at work and should not be considered a fault. Acceptable limits are defined in the relevant British Standard

Composite products can appear patchy / darker in places when unpacked. This is common and is only the moisture from within the product drying out. This product will weather naturally like timber or any other outdoor product, location and exposure will increase the process. Composite fencing has greater tensile strength than concrete and can flex.

If at any time one or more of the conditions shall become or be declared invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any respect under the law, the validity and enforceability of the remaining provisions hereof shall not in any way be affected or impaired.  These conditions and every contract made pursuant thereto shall be governed and construed and interpreted in accordance with the laws of England.
