2. Call Recording

Our phone calls are recorded for training and monitoring purposes. 

3. Availability

We work hard on keeping our product availability database up to date and do not knowingly offer any item online that is not available. Of course, and as in any business, things can go wrong from time to time and in that event, we will always keep you informed if we hit any problems with your order.

Unlike many websites we select a range and physically carry it in stock, rather than just list everything from every manufacturer. This means that our customers know exactly where they stand when ordering from us and we will endeavour you receive a much speedier service because of it. If there is something you are unable to find, please let us have a daytime telephone number and we will do our best to source the item and fulfil your order.  

4. Bulk buy policy

To ensure availability of all our products, customers may be limited to a maximum number of items on certain special offer items.

5. Delivery

Widths are quite long for one person to carry safely, so drivers may need assistance in unloading your grass. The drivers are only obliged to drop at the main entrance of the property, curb side only.

Delivery will be made to the address specified when you complete the order. We deliver to almost all residential or commercial postal addresses within our delivery areas. We will not deliver to car parks, docks, fields etc. Please note we only deliver to addresses within England, Scotland and Wales. 

We use a variety of delivery methods, depending on the size of the item you order and the speed with which you wish to receive it. We aim to deliver most of our larger sized items within 3-5 working days for most UK postcodes. On certain items there is a longer lead time which is up to 30 days unless another time is specified. 

For orders that are delivered direct to you by our suppliers, they will contact you to arrange a delivery date that is convenient to you. A signature may be required at delivery, by placing an order you are authorising us to accept a signature from an adult at the delivery address or neighbouring property should you not be available at the time of delivery. For some products that do not require a signature at delivery you may be able to give instructions explaining if and where you would like the product to be left if no one is present. Ownership of a product will not pass to you until we have delivered the product to you (either directly, or by leaving it in a safe place or with a neighbour or where you have signed for it when using the In Store Collection option). This is when the contract between you and us will be deemed to have concluded. 

Once a product is delivered, responsibility for risk of damage to or loss of the product passes to you. We also use third party delivery companies which may, at their discretion, leave a product in a safe place if no one is present at the time of delivery. In these circumstances the delivery company will put a card through your letter box explaining where the product has been left. By Signing for items delivered by a courier you are confirming receipt of the items in good condition and as such will be unable to claim for any damages. If you are unable to check your items before signing, ensure you sign for the goods stating ‘Unchecked’. All Shortages or Damages must be reported to us upon delivery.

17. Fading

Although our composite decking uses UV stabilisation additives during manufacturing, they will lighten slightly within the first few weeks/months whilst any residual dyes wash out due to weathering before they settle into their final colour. This process is known as “extractive bleeding”.

18. Colours

We send out artificial grass and composite products from the same batch to ensure there are no slight colour differentials. Therefore, please be aware if you want to add more grass or composite to an area at a later date there may be a slight colouration difference. We suggest you make the decision now and order all the grass/composite from the same batch. Composite Wood Shop cannot be liable for any differences in colour for the same product if ordered at different times.
The colour of goods may vary slightly from that shown on the website due to limitations of browser software and monitors. Colouration and pile can vary by up to 10% from samples provided to actual products supplied due to batch manufacturing and variation.

19. Artificial Grass 

Creases/Backing

Due to the molecular structure of the backing material, it can crease when rolled/during transportation, occasionally during colder weather the backing may crack in small areas, however this does not effect the products in any way and is not classed as faulty. Creases should fall out within three months of the installation or supply. (This can take longer in winter months).The grass is not classed as faulty if delivered or installed with creases of cracked backing. Creases in the grass backing will decrease quite noticeably on a daily basis.

Seams/Grass Widths

Seams are occasionally visible due to the molecular structure of the product. This is unfortunately inevitable and can be influenced by a number of factors. Our warranty does not cover seam visibility.
