14. General – Guarantee / Warranty information for each manufacturer will be supplied to you on completion of the installation. If you do require confirmed manufacturer guarantees prior to the installation starting, please contact Complete Kitchens Ely Ltd.

Appliances – Covered by the standard manufacturers guarantee – it is the customers responsibility to ensure appliances are registered online with the manufacturer. If appliances are not registered with the manufacturer this may invalidate your guarantee.

Worktops – Laminate worktops come with a 12 month guarantee against manufacturing defects. All joints are fully sealed to a professional finish. Please ensure that no water is left on the joints of laminate worktops to avoid the joint lifting in the future. Any laminate worktops reported to Complete Kitchens Ely where the joint has lifted due to water damage will not be replaced free of charge. Care should be taken to ensure that laminate worktop joints are not exposed to water, or heat and any water spillage is cleaned immediately.

Worktops – Solid Wood worktops come with a 12 month guarantee. Subject to the type of solid wood worktop you have purchased will depend on the care and maintenance required, we recommend you read the care and maintenance leaflet supplied to ensure your worktops receive the correct maintenance to preserve their life. Water must not be left standing on wood worktops, this can cause black marking on the worktops which would not be covered under the product guarantee. If you notice any signs of the worktops becoming dry it is essential additional coats of oil are added immediately.

Stone Worktops – Quartz and Granite worktops can vary slightly in shade, colour and pattern, to the samples seen in the showroom or from our suppliers.

Care of Timber doors – Wood is a beautiful natural product and the different grains and textures in the wood often means there are a variety of tonal differences in the doors and drawer fronts.

Exposure to daylight will change the appearance of the natural wood fascia’s. Each type of timber reacts differently and at a different rate, becoming darker, richer and with more contrast. Exposure to direct sunlight will bleach wooden furniture. Bleaching of colours can affect your furniture within two months and will be different on each of the door and drawer front components, depending upon its position relative to the windows.

Installation in recently plastered properties can see the moisture drawn into the timber causing a slight swelling, which will reduce when the relative humidity returns to normal. The degree of reaction is dependent on the timber type.

Vinyl doors – Vinyl wrapped MDF doors and laminate worktop joints can be affected by heat, water, and steam. Care should be taken to ensure the edges of doors are not exposed to prolonged or excessive heat from small domestic appliances (kettle, toaster, etc) and integrated extractor doors are opened with the extractor in operation when a hob is in use. Care should be taken to ensure the edges of doors are not doused in water.

Exposure to direct sunlight will eventually bleach the colours slightly and will be different on each of the door and drawer front components, depending upon their position relative to the windows.

 All installation work is guaranteed for 2 years against defective workmanship.
