Notification on all paints
Please note that products made specially to order in tinted or special colours in our mixing room cannot be returned and no refunds will be offered. This applies to any product in Custom Mixed Colours or where the customer enters their colour reference.

Mix thoroughly and check shade before use. No responsibility for a colour complaint will be accepted after application.

We do not guarantee products are fit for any particular purpose or intended use by the buyer and it is for the buyer to satisfy itself that the products are so fit prior to use. Always test the product on a small, inconspicuous area and leave to dry fully, to satisfy yourself the finished colour meets your expectations before painting in full. Please note that wet paint can appear different to the dried product.

Please note colour reproduction is limited by the technology used to deliver web pages and by the colour representation of your monitor and computer. We have made every effort to display as accurately as possible the colours of our products but we cannot guarantee the colour you see on your monitor will accurately reflect the colour of the delivered product.
