Samples given are indicative only and may not give the full detail of variation throughout a standard sized slab. Slab bundles may vary from slab to slab or block to block. This is a common occurrence throughout the industry and European Marble Centre is not able to guarantee that samples provided will be an exact match to the final product supplied. It is recommended that if the customer has any concerns they may arrange an appointment to visit European Marble Centres showroom to view the natural stone before any cutting commences.
European Marble Centre reserves the right to patch and repair all natural stone products where breakages occur due to natural defects in the material. Once the product is installed/ collected European Marble Centre cannot be held responsible for any cracks/damage cause by floor movement, insufficient support or misuse. Floor movement can occur causing stress in the stone which will result in a crack, insufficient substructure support can also cause cracking and/or sagging of the stone.
