Natural Timber Stone provides 12-month warranty on all products
Natural Timber Stone guarantees to repair any product with a manufacturing defect within 12 months from the date of purchase. This is provided that the defect is not a result of normal wear and tear, or a natural characteristic of the material used.
The furniture must be cared for in accordance with the care instructions provided. The original purchase receipt must be retained in order to make a claim.
This warranty is in addition to the rights granted by relevant State and Federal Laws, and in particular the Trade Practices Act 1974 and corresponding State Fair Trading Legislation. Please ensure that you keep your receipt in order to validate your warranty.
Timber grain, scars and nail marks are not to be mistaken as defects. The timbers used are one piece timber so that any putty or epoxy resin used is necessary to the finish of the furniture.
In most cases it is used to fill holes of the slabs or to smooth over any natural imperfections in the slabs.
The nature, colour, grain structure, appearance, shape, edges and staining of the wood furniture requires an understanding that every wood slab is different due to the nature of the product.
We cannot guarantee to specify colour or grain on the natural hardwoods.
Not guaranteed are any defect caused by:
• Unreasonable wear and tear
• Defects resulting from the use of polishes or substances warned against in the care instructions.

To maximize the life and beauty, protection of the natural wood furniture, please follow these guidelines:
• Timber should not be placed on damp or wet surfaces or exposed to direct sunlight or extreme heat. Extremes in temperature due to heaters, fireplaces and air-conditioners will contribute to the decline in moisture content and can affect the life and look of your natural wood furniture causing it to split, move and warp.
• Avoid placing abrasive items directly on your furniture and always place a protective pad, placemat or coaster under hot dishes, teapots, saucepans etc. Our furniture surfaces have been treated with a heat resistant lacquer but will not tolerate excessive heat. The heat transfers through the lacquer and marks the timber itself as well as marking the lacquer.
• Spills should be wiped off immediately with a soft cloth. Our lacquer is water resistant, but not capable of dealing with excessive amounts. The liquid will eventually seep through the lacquer and cause swelling, blistering and ir-repairable damage to the timber if exposed to excessive amounts of water.
• Please avoid any contact between your natural wood furniture and acetone, methylated spirits, markers, glues or any cleaning products containing silicone.
• Avoid covering your furniture for prolonged periods of time. Moisture can collect under the covering and cause damage to your furniture.
