Product Guarantees

We guarantee all products against faulty workmanship and/or faulty materials for a period of 12 months from the date of delivery. We reserve the right to inspect the product and verify the fault in more detail after initially assessing the product via digital photos. This guarantee does not cover reasonable wear and tear and any natural movements within the wood.

Faulty Goods Policy

Wood is obviously a natural product and we have listed some examples below that will not be classed as faulty or defective. By purchasing from Charnley’s Home and Garden you are accepting the statements below.

  1. We offer many different ranges of oak furniture that come in different colours, grain patterns and textures.  Some ranges have a more clean oak finish with very little variation in colour and grain and some ranges have a more rustic nature with small knots, blemishes and colour variation across the table top.  If you have a specific requirement for one of these types then please speak with one of our sales agents or email us for advice prior to ordering.  On some occasions, there may be some limited use of wood filler during the manufacture of the furniture.
  2. Over time some expansion gaps may begin to appear within the table top areas of some wooden tables as they adjust to the seasonal variations of humidity within a modern central heated home which can be very dry in the winter months. This is usually very minor but is perfectly natural within some furniture ranges. We recommend that the temperature is controlled in the room where the table is used for the first few months to no more than 20 degrees Celsius to allow it to adjust to the dryer air within a home more naturally and gradually. If you decide to use your furniture in a conservatory or a room with underfloor heating it will invalidate your 12 month product guarantee as it may force the oak wood within your furniture to lose any remaining moisture too quickly.
  3. Some of the oiled oak tables that we offer may need re-oiling or waxing from time to time to maintain their resistance to liquid spills.  In some cases a fresh coat or oil or wax depending on the range you may improve the colours within a table top.  Failure to care for your furniture in the correct manner may invalidate your 12 month furniture warranty guarantee.  We are more than happy to offer additional advice regarding how to care for your furniture.
  4. We recommend that any mats or partial coverings that are used on dining room tables are moved around every few weeks to reduce the chances of sunlight bleaching the colours across parts of the table top.
  5. We recommend that mats and coasters are used to keep plates, cups and glasses out of direct contact with the table surface.  Any spillages on the furniture should be wiped up immediately with a dry lint-free cloth.

This does not affect your statutory rights.
