Policies & Disclaimers
We will personally greet each customer and guide him or her through the selection process. To ensure accuracy, a information sheet will be filled out gathering all pertinent information. Once the selection has been made, we will have the client sign off on the size, finish and quantity so it may be placed on hold.
Client selections are treated with the highest regards to professionalism, care, and diligence. We acknowledge that we will be representing your business and yourself, to your client. We take pride and honor in our work, and are conscientious of this task.
Hold periods are up to three business days without a deposit. If the three day time period expires, we will proceed to contact you and verify your order. If a deposit is made, we can hold the material for 14 days. Fifty percent of the cost of the material is required as a deposit.
PURCHASE ORDER PPROCEDURE
Once an order has been verified, we will require a purchase order for the selected material(s) via email. Purchase orders must reflect: quantity, size, finish and price of materials being purchased. The purchase order will be verified and emailed back. Your sales consultant will help schedule pick up or delivery at your convenience.
