Cancellations and changes can only be made for a period of 24 hours after you have placed your order.

We will deduct this administration fee from your deposit and refund the balance to you.
SGS Shutters and Blinds Ltd will not issue refunds or credits for cancellations or changes outside of the first 24 hours. Therefore, the full deposit collected at the time of your order will be forfeit.
On very rare occasions, there may be delays caused by factors beyond our control. These include, but are not limited to, third-party manufacturing issues (e.g. out-of-stock materials, factory delays), shipping delays or weather conditions. In the event of a known delay, you will be contacted and informed immediately. SGS Shutters and Blinds Ltd does not take responsibility for such delays. We are unable to offer partial/full refunds in the event of such manufacturing issues or delays. This does not affect your statutory rights.
SGS Shutters and Blinds Ltd reserves the right to reject any order at its discretion.
Our products carry a 12 months warranty. MDF shutters carry a 3-year warranty. Hardwood shutters (MDF Frame) carry a 3-year warranty. White Teak and ABS shutters carry a 3-year warranty.
The warranty on our products is activated when the full balance for your order is paid. A final invoice showing a balance of £0 will be sent to you once the outstanding balance is settled. For the avoidance of doubt, the warranty is not valid on products that have not been paid in full.
On occasion, items may arrive with various damages. These will be covered under the warranty specified for each period and will be replaced as such. The lead time for which is the same as outlined in article ii. We can not offer partial refunds for damages out of our control and still within the warranty period.
For other specialist products (e.g. awnings, carports and motorised blinds) manufacturer’s warranty will apply on mechanical and electric components. This is usually 12 (twelve) months from installation but varies depending on the product and manufacturer. Manufacturer’s warranty covers failure of the components solely in the course of normal usage. SGS Shutters and Blinds Ltd offers a 12 months warranty on fabrics. The fabric warranty covers manufacturing faults and defects, excluding normal wear and tear. On selected products, extended warranty packages can be purchased at an additional cost. These packages include annual maintenance, cleaning and servicing, and they are priced on an individual basis. For the avoidance of doubt, warranties are activated once outstanding balances are settled and they are not valid on products that have not been paid in full.

SGS Shutters and Blinds Ltd is not liable for damages of items left in close proximity of your windows or produced as a result of items being left near the windows.
