8.2. Subject to this Clause 8 and Clause 11 all other conditions, warranties or other stipulations concerning the Goods whether express or implied by common law or under statute are excluded to the fullest extent permitted by law, and, in particular, but without limiting the foregoing generality, Fletcher Joinery grants no warranties regarding fitness for purpose, use, quality or nature of the Goods whether  express or implied by statute or common law.

9.3. All external joinery items are dipped in preservative upon completion or during manufacture.  Whilst this treatment
reduces the possibility of rot and insect attack, it cannot eliminate this possibility entirely.  Hence Fletcher Joinery’s guarantee in Clause 7 does not cover rot and insect attack of joinery items.
9.4. Unless otherwise stated, staining or painting of joinery items is not included in the estimated or quoted price.


10.1. Nothing in these Conditions shall be construed so as to exclude or limit the liability of Fletcher Joinery for breach of the warranties contained in Clause 5 or for breach of warranty as to title and quiet possession implied by the Sale of Goods Act 1979 where such Act applies to the contract between Fletcher Joinery and the Customer for the sale and purchase of the Goods incorporating these Conditions.
