2) Order Confirmation
You must check the order confirmation carefully and contact us immediately, by email, if there are any corrections required.

3) Door and Furniture Warranty
All products are covered by a 12 month warranty providing all our procedures have been adhered to (see Door Treatment). Any extended manufacturers warranties that are provided by our suppliers are separate from our own warranty. Our Suppliers have a 10 year manufacturers warranty in place (providing the door has been treated in accordance with the treatment instructions). We are not able to offer a warranty for any products that are exported by customers overseas (non mainland U.K.). *Please note the warranty is only valid for the person or company who purchased the product and is not transferable. We cannot warranty a door if it is damaged by severe weather, such as flooding etc.
3a) Are your doors solid oak, pine, hardwood etc?
It is normal for doors to be made from engineered components. This means that the doors will be a veneer of oak, hardwood, pine etc. over a composite core which may consist of any of the following; Timber, MDF or Chipboard. There is a possibility of other materials being used. MDF is used on the faces of all internal white primed doors to acheive a smooth finish.
You cannot trim more than 6mm off each side of a door.
Constructing doors like this gives the door more stability as they are less prone to problems that one piece timber doors have, such as twisting & bowing.
The other important reason for this is there is less waist and therefore it is kinder to the environment.
Timber is a natural product and can vary in shades and grain. We can not therefore guarantee that all doors will match exaclty in shade and grain.
3b) Composite Doors
Fitting of a composite door should be carried out by a qualified fitter.
99% of problems encountered are due to the composite door and frame not being fitted properly i.e. level. This will cause the locking system to work incorrectly. Please make sure that the problems you are encountering are not due to incorrect fitting.
Please make sure your composite door is fitted correctly.
3c) Frames and products that come with frames.
Before building an opening for any frame or product that comes complete with a frame, the opening (or removal of the old frame and door) must be constructed after the product has been delivered and inspected. We will not accept any claims for damages one the frame has been constructed or worked on.
No guarantee is given to the longevity of lacquer which has been applied to brass, please see our FAQ section for care information.
5) Advising of Faults / Damages
Please check the goods supplied and notify us of any faults within 48 hours by email. This must be done before fitting. We will require images of the fault. We will not accept any complaints after the goods have been fitted or worked on.

9) Website Images and Colours
Images and timber colours on our website are used to represent the design of the doors. Designs and colours of the images should not be taken as a true reflection of the doors that we would deliver. Some of the images have been stained or varnished. The doors that we supply will be unfinished unless otherwise stated.
Timber is a natural product and therefore is liable to colour variations. Manufacturers and suppliers try to colour match the timber in each door but are not able to give a guarantee that one door will match another.
All orders are subject to availability. Due to our policy of continuous product development, we reserve the right to amend product designs, alter specifications or withdraw products without prior notice.

How to Protect your Door
WARNING - ALL DOORS MUST BE FULLY TREATED BEFORE HANGING - FAILURE TO DO SO WILL INVALIDATE YOUR WARRANTY!
Paint and peel must be removed before hanging............ We are not able to accept any claims for scratched glass after the doors have been fitted.
*If we paint / stain or varnish your door for you you must make sure that any trimmed edges are re-treated. Failure to do this will invalidate your warranty.
1. Make sure all doors are sanded before treatment so that the best possible finish may be achieved.
2. It is most important that prior to fitting, the door must be fully treated
3. For Exterior Doors both front and rear surfaces, the sides and both top and bottom edges and any cut outs (locks, letter plates, hinges etc) must be treated with a minimum of four coats of a proprietary branded finish or paint suitable for this purpose.
4. For Interior Doors both front and rear surfaces, sides, top and bottom must be treated with a minimum of 4 coats of micro-porous proprietary branded finish or the equivalent suitable for this product. When painting doors use one or two coats of undercoat and at least two coats of paint.
5. Timber is a naturally grown material subject to changes due to variations of humidity and temperature. It is therefore vital that particular attention be paid to the top and bottom edges where the grain is most exposed and where moisture can easily penetrate causing swelling, splitting and warping. Open joints will occur if these areas are not properly treated.
6. Doors should be reduced in size equally from both sides, top and bottom when fitting (no more than 6mm of each side). You must not fit locks on any joints as this weakens the door and could cause an opening of the joints.
We do not provide a fitting service so we advise all customers not to book fitters until they have received the relevant goods. We shall not be liable for any losses, costs, damages, charges, or expenses caused by any delay for delivery of the goods.
Door integrity cannot be guaranteed under severe weather conditions. We will not be held resposible for any damage that may occur to your door(s) in the event of extreme weather conditions.
Please note that timber is a natural product therefore there may be differences in shading between the styles, top rail, base rail and panels etc. We are not able to colour match if you choose to have your doors stained or pained by us. The Ronseal colours displayed on the website may appear slightly different to the actual colour depending on your monitor settings. We recommend that premium quality Varnish and stain be used. We do not recommend that clear varnish is applied to any hardwood product as this will exaggerate the differences in the shades of timber. We do not recommend the use of water based primers as this may cause the veneer to lift, solvent based primers must be used. If you use a water based primer you do so at your own risk.
When purchasing a pre-primed door you must apply at least one final top coat of quality paint.
*ALL EXTERNAL PRE-FINISHED DOORS MUST BE RE-TREATED AT LEAST EVERY TWO YEARS (*THIS INCLUDES RONSEAL 5 YEAR WOODSTAIN)
*While Ronseal call their product "Ronseal 5 Year Woodstain" this is only in optimum conditions, which very rarely exist. Therefore we recommend that you re-treat the door every 2 years or this may invalidate your warranty.
*Please note all XL Joinery external pre-finished doors and door sets are treated with a waterbased stain. When re-treating you must not use a solvent based stain as this may react with the waterbased stain and cause the finish to deteriorate and the doors to delaminate etc.XL Joinery have stated that if this happens they will not warranty the door / door set.
Oils (including Danish Oil), dyes and waxes (unless Osmo Polyx®-Oil- microporus is used) also yacht varnish and wood preserver must not be used as they provide inadequate protection and their use will invalidate your warranty!
The manufacturers state that a weather bar must be used on all external doors (except folding sliding doors), even if a lowline cill (exitex) is used.
Wood preserver must not be used on vennered doors as it is not suitable - it will cause the veneer to lift and invalidate the warranty.
Please note Ronseal have informed our door suppliers that their External Varnish (the one with the door on the front of the tin) is not sutable for veneered doors. While we belive this is very misleading, if the product is used it will invalidate your warrantee as it does not give enough protection and therefore may cause the veneer to bubble or lift.
(Johnstone's quick dry satin woodstain states that 2 or more coats need to be applied. Please note that at least 4 coats must be applied to all veneered doors as two coats will not offer adequate protection and will not seal the door properly. If you use only 2 coats you will invalidate your warranty.)
ALL EXTERNAL DOORS (INCLUDING FOLDING AND SLIDING DOORS) THAT ARE SUPPLIED FULLY FINISHED MUST BE RETREATED AT LEAST EVERY TWO YEARS (ONCE A YEAR IF CLEAR VARNISH IS USED). FAILURE DO DO SO WILL INVALIDATE YOUR WARRANTY.
*The addition of a cat flap to any door will invalidate the warranty as this alters the structure and will also allow moisture to penertrate.
When finishing your door or frame in our paint shop, we are not able to colour match to other items you have in your home or business.
In the interest of environmental concerns and improved performance products may contain mixed timber of various species with veneered finish. Panels are either laminated timber or MDF with a veneered overlay.
*Please note if we are finishing your door for you it may take up to 3 weeks for delivery.

6. Cookies. By accessing this Website, you accept and agree that Kaybee Liverpool Ltd, its affiliated companies or its service providers may send cookies (small pieces of data placed on Your hard disk drive when you access a website or a certain part of a website) to Your computer or other access device in order to personalise Your visit to this Website and/or to learn more about your use or browsing habits while visiting this Website. The cookie may be a persistent or single session cookie.
Cookies and personal data
Regulation 6 covers the use of electronic communications networks to store information, eg using cookies, or gain access to information stored in the terminal equipment of a subscriber or user.
Although devices which process personal data give rise to greater privacy and security implications than those which process data from which the individual cannot be identified, the Regulations apply to all uses of such devices, not just those involving the processing of personal data.
Where the use of a cookie type device does involve the processing of personal data, service providers will need to make sure they comply with the additional requirements of the Data Protection Act 1998 (the Act). This includes the requirements of the third data protection principle which states that data controllers must not process personal data that is excessive. Where personal data is collected, the data controller should consider the extent to which that data can be effectively processed anonymously. This is likely to be particularly relevant where the data is to be processed for a purpose other than the provision of the service directly requested by the user, for example, counting visitors to a website.
Confidentiality of communications and spyware
It should be remembered that the intention behind this Regulation is also to reflect concerns about the use of covert surveillance mechanisms online. Here, we are not referring to the collection of data in the context of conducting legitimate business online but the fact that so-called spyware can enter a terminal without the knowledge of the subscriber or user to gain access to information, store information or trace the activities of the user and that such activities often have a criminal purpose behind them.
Information to be provided
Cookies or similar devices must not be used unless the subscriber or user of the relevant terminal equipment:
(a) is provided with clear and comprehensive information about the purposes of the storage of, or access to, that information; and
(b) has given his or her consent.
The Regulations are not prescriptive about the sort of information that should be provided, but the text should be sufficiently full and intelligible to allow individuals to clearly understand the potential consequences of allowing storage and access to the information collected by the device should they wish to do so. This is comparable with the transparency requirements of the first data protection principle.
The Regulations state that once a person has used such a device to store or access data in the terminal equipment of a user or subscriber, that person will not be required to provide the information described and obtain consent (and discussed above) on subsequent occasions, as long as they met these requirements initially. Although the Regulations do not require the relevant information to be provided on each occasion, they do not prevent this.
Responsibility for providing the information and obtaining consent
The Regulations do not define who should be responsible for providing the information and obtaining consent. Where a person operates an online service and any use of a cookie type device will be for their purposes only, it is clear that that person will be responsible for complying with this Regulation.
Exemptions from the right to refuse a cookie
The Regulations specify that service providers should not have to provide the information and obtain consent where that device is to be used:
- for the sole purpose of carrying out or facilitating the transmission of a communication over an electronic communications network; or
- where such storage or access is strictly necessary to provide an information society service requested by the subscriber or user.
In defining an 'information society service' the Electronic Commerce (EC Directive) Regulations 2002 refer to 'any service normally provided for remuneration, at a distance, by means of electronic equipment for the processing (including digital compression) and storage of data, and at the individual request of a recipient of a service'.
The term 'strictly necessary' means that such storage of or access to information should be essential, rather than reasonably necessary, for this exemption to apply. However, it will also be restricted to what is essential to provide the service requested by the user, rather than what might be essential for any other uses the service provider might wish to make of that data. It will also include what is required to comply with any other legislation the service provider might be subject to, for example, the security requirements of the seventh data protection principle.
Where the use of a cookie type device is deemed 'important' rather than 'strictly necessary', those collecting the information are still obliged to provide information about the device to the potential service recipient and obtain consent.
Wishes of subscribers and users
Regulation 6 states that consent for the cookie type device should be obtained from the subscriber or user but it does not specify whose wishes should take precedence if they are different. There may well be cases where a subscriber, for example, an employer, provides an employee with a terminal at work along with access to certain services to carry out a particular task, where to effectively complete the task depends on using a cookie type device. In these cases, it would not seem unreasonable for the employer’s wishes to take precedence. However, it also seems likely that there will be circumstances where a user’s wish should take precedence. To continue the above example, an employer’s wish to accept such a device should not take precedence where this will involve the unwarranted collection of personal data of that employee.
