Storage Of Your Products
We send most products wrapped in protective packaging wherever possible to avoid damage.
We would always advise that any type of PVC or ABS building product is immediately stored in a cool place out of direct sunlight to avoid damage due to heat buildup within the packaging. Any extrusions (lengths of product) should be stored horizontally and supported along the whole length of the product.
In warm summer temperatures heat will always build up inside any packaging and there is a chance that PVC goods left in the sun and not correctly supported could become warped - this is particularly relevant to dark colours of PVC Gutters, Soil and Waste fittings or Roofline or Cladding profiles. Once correctly installed, expansion and contraction occurs naturally within PVC systems and this does not affect performance in any way.
Please note that where we believe goods have not been correctly stored or have been left in the sun we cannot be held responsible for any damage that has occured. All goods should be checked on delivery and any damages should be reported immediately.
