Due to our door and glass products being bespoke made to measure items specifically manufactured for the customer, there is no cooling off period and these items cannot be cancelled once an order is accepted. Once you have signed to accept an order or purchased online through the website, the order will go into production and cannot be amended, cancelled or refunded.

All products and services are subject to availability and may be withdrawn at any time. If we do not supply the goods for any reason we will not charge you for these and we will refund any money already paid for them. However, we will not be responsible for compensating you for any other losses you may suffer if we do not supply the goods such as labour costs. No compensation is given for late delivery or put off works due to this. Bespoke manufactured goods that are not off the shelf products are prone to delays and we will not be held responsible for lost time, labour or any other losses.
The manufacturing process for bespoke made to measure items such as composite doors, bi fold doors, windows etc that we supply is a production line that is followed. In some cases the goods will be completed as late as the day before delivery is due so in the event of a delay you could be advised as late as the due date that goods won’t be delivered on time.
ANY TIME OR DATE SPECIFIED BY THE COMPANY AS THE TIME AT WHICH OR DATE ON WHICH GOODS WILL BE DELIVERED IS GIVEN IN GOOD FAITH BUT IS GIVEN AND INTENDED AS A PROVISION ONLY AND THE COMPANY SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY LOSS, DAMAGE OR EXPENSE ARISING FROM DELAY IN DELIVERY AND/OR INSTALLATION.
The Company generally offers a 15 – 20 working day lead-time. The Company will do all it reasonably can to meet the delivery period advised to you. In the case of unforeseen circumstances beyond our reasonable controls such as weather, traffic or machinery and vehicle breakdown, we shall contact you and agree an alternative date. We will try our best to meet the outlined delivery schedule but shall not be responsible for any failure to deliver ordered products within these stated time frames.
You will receive an email on the morning of delivery as soon as it is provided by the supplier, this will give you a tracking number for your order. This slot is rarely missed but this is purely an estimate as we cannot accommodate unforeseen circumstances.
Your delivery date cannot be changed once it is confirmed and the door will be delivered on the stated day within the allotted time (when given). If no one is present to accept the door then it will be returned to the factory and a £40.00 re delivery charge will be applied, so please ensure someone is present to receive the door and check it before signing for it. Once the door is delivered it becomes your property and your responsibility. The delivery driver will ask you to inspect the door and sign for receipt in good condition. The delivery contractor will not take away packaging material. If an item is defective or damaged before or on delivery, we will replace it free of charge. This is in addition to your manufacturer’s guarantee.
It is your responsibility to sign for the correct number of items as shown on the delivery consignment note. Any shortages must be notified to us within 24 hours from delivery or within a reasonable amount of time. It is your responsibility to notify us of any incorrect goods supplied within 24 hours from delivery or within a reasonable amount of time. We will not accept liability for goods lost in transit unless we are notified within 24 hours from the expected delivery date or within a reasonable amount of time.
Risk in the goods sold passes to you on delivery once signed for.
Due to insurance guidelines, delivery personnel are unable to enter private residences. The recipient of the goods is responsible for any additional lifting once the initial delivery has been made.
We recommend that you do not book fitters until your order has been received and checked. Any cancelled labour charges are not our responsibility.
Late/missed/delayed deliveries due to manufacturing, stock issues or failed quality control are sometimes possible due to reasons beyond our control. If any of these issues occur we will notify you as soon as we are made aware by the supplier. This could even be on the day of delivery and we accept no responsibility for customer time taken to wait for delivery or annual leave used to be present for delivery.
ALL DOORS ARE CHECKED BEFORE THEY LEAVE THE FACTORY. HOWEVER, PLEASE CHECK YOUR GOODS TO ENSURE THEY ARE THE CORRECT SIZE AND STYLE, AND OPERATE EASILY PRIOR TO REMOVAL OF OLD DOOR AND INSTALLATION. IF YOU ARE UNHAPPY WITH ANY PART OF AN ITEM SUPPLIED DO NOT BEGIN THE INSTALLATION! CONTACT US ON 01268 382252 or [email protected]
ANY SHORTAGES OR DAMAGES MUST BE REPORTED WITHIN 24 HOURS OF YOUR DELIVERY DATE. ANY ITEMS REPORTED MISSING OR DAMAGED AFTER THIS TIME WILL BE DEEMED CHARGEABLE. We cannot accept return of goods that are damaged after delivery where this is due to the negligence of the customer, the customer’s installation contractor or other third party.
We recommend that a competent or qualified person carries out the installation of goods supplied. It is the responsibility of the installer to provide any guarantees or certifications for their own work. The company is not liable for any installation issues that may arise due to no fault of the product.
It is well recognised that over 90% of remedial work is due to incorrect installation.
Always check the size of your new framework against your old frame before removing old frame.
It is your responsibility to choose the appropriate product based upon the information contained on our web site. If you are in any doubt as to which product to order then contact us. A product cannot be returned when it is subsequently found to be unsuitable for any reason, such as (but not limited to):

Emergency call outs and locksmiths
Front Doors Online Ltd do not operate an emergency call out service for malfunction of locks and as for a percentage of our orders we operate on a national basis we cannot always guarantee an immediate service – in order to comply our customers will be notified at the time of purchase (on request) of the procedure they are required to follow – which is –
- In the rare event a malfunction with the locking system renders the door inoperable, the customer must make every attempt to call us direct for Front Doors Online Ltd to authorise further action.
- If the malfunction should occur outside of business hours and the customer must seek the services of a third party, any costs incurred by an emergency locksmith visit will be reimbursed to the customer direct by Front Doors Online Ltd, but only in the event that the customer can produce an invoice or receipt for the works and as long as the call out fee does not exceed £80. The customer is asked to only have the door secured and made functional by a third party. Any replacement parts required will be supplied/installed by Front Doors Online Ltd as part of the warranty. Any claims to cover costs of parts supplied by a third party that are otherwise covered under our guarantee will not be refunded by Front Doors Online Ltd.
All sealed units, panels and profiles supplied by the company (Front Doors Online Ltd) carry a comprehensive manufacturers guarantee for a period of 10 years from the date of delivery provided that the goods have been paid for as per the contract. In the unlikely event that a problem develops during the 10 year period, the company will simply replace the faulty item. We will do our best to match any previous items supplied, but due to availability of materials this may not be possible.
The Company shall replace any item free of charge proven to be faulty. The Company will NOT pay the cost of any additional work or labour required to install replacement items. The Company cannot be held responsible for normal ‘Wear and Tear’ or accidental damage, misuse or failure by the customer to comply with routine maintenance.
The performance and quality of all profiles are guaranteed for 10 years, sealed glass units and gaskets are guaranteed for 5 years and hardware and locks 3 years from date of delivery allowing for fair wear and tear. We guarantee that the colour for a woodgrain finish will not fade for 10 years as long as you regularly wash the product with warm (not soapy) water. Do not try to clean the products with solutions containing bleach or abrasive cleaners. We do not guarantee the finish of handles or letterboxes after 1 year.
Examples of fair wear and tear not covered may include:
– Scratched handles on doors;
– pitted, marked or broken letterboxes, handles or knockers or other door furniture;
– Scratched or broken glass units after delivery;
– snapped keys in locks
