TRADEMARKS, WARRANTIES & COLOUR
(a) No guarantee or warranty is given that these goods are designed or suitable for the purpose of which they may be intended.

(c) Materials are supplied subject to natural formation characteristics, colour and marking variations. You acknowledge that variation and colour and textures are unavoid able due to differences in natural stone deposits and Double L Concrete & Granite Products accepts no responsibility for colour variation, fading or discolouration which may occur for any reason whatsoever.
(d) To avoid permanent staining remove any excess mortar from Stone surface immediately.
(e) To avoid any possibility of colour banding build from two separate packages.
(d) Texture and colour of standard concrete and fair-face concrete products. Precast concrete products are manufactured using cement and cementitious materials such as ﬂy-ash and slag cement and other materials such as course stone and fine sand aggregates. These materials used in concrete production are naturally occurring materials and as such will have a degree of colour variation and surface texture. Also, the ambient conditions in which precast concrete products are manufactured and the age of such concrete products will also affect the appearance of such products, further, concrete products stored on-site for prolonged periods in inclement weather are also liable to become water stained and can increase the possibility of efflorescence, whilst water marks or efflorescence are not detrimental to the performance of concrete products they may not be aesthetically pleasing. However, in most situations externally installed concrete products will return to a uniformity of surface appearance as the products accustom to the ambient conditions.
