Where specific elements of job are not described clearly and accurately by the client, the implementation of those elements will be at the discretion of Mason Industries. Any subsequent modifications to the specification must be confirmed in writing via email or post. Any quote includes two minor modifications to the job specifications, any modifications after that will be chargeable at a rate agreed upon at the time. Any goods rejected, or not complying for whatever reason with the order within the finished product, must be notified to Mason Industries in writing within 30 days of receipt in order for an inspection and remediation to be considered.
