Quality & Description of Goods
The nature of our natural stone products means that the appearance, colour, tone and texture may vary resulting in the actual physical stone differing in shape, size, thickness and appearance from the photographs used on our Webpage and e-commerce sites, such as eBay. It is strongly recommended that Customers request physical samples of stone from any range before placing orders; customers are advised to visit Milton Garden Products to view all products prior to ordering. The Customer is responsible for ensuring that the goods are suitable for their intended purpose. The goods are sold on the understanding that they are of natural stone which is subject to natural formation characteristics, variation in colour, texture and markings and are all part of the natural makeup and appeal of natural stone.
Milton Garden Products recommends that the Purchaser employ only the services of a qualified and experienced fitter in the storage, handling, laying and sealing of all natural stone and porcelain. We also recommend that the Purchaser use a good quality, suitable adhesive and grout, we currently sell RESIPLY, please ask for details. Natural stone paving needs to be sealed using a good quality and recognised sealing brand in order to prevent the chance of fading and discolouration, we currently stock AZPECTS EASY SEAL, please ask for details.
Returns & Exchanges
To prevent the likelihood of breakages for the order we advise to order full packs rather than split packs, due to the product being removed from its original packaging to a less secure half pallet.

If slabs are damaged upon delivery then we ask for the purchaser to sign for it as ‘Damaged’ on arrival.

Any damages or unusable are the customers responsibility to exchange, and any cost to return or redeliver lies with the purchaser.
We will NOT exchange, replace or refund for: breakages, chips, damages or discolouration up to 10% of the full order, as this is considered
