OUR ENVIRONMENTAL APPROACH TO DAMAGE
In our continuing effort to be as cost conscious and environmentally friendly as possible, Aidan Gray personnel inspect all products during production and before packaging so that we do not ship products from abroad to you, wasting natural resources and fuel, not to mention time and money. However; occasionally, something may get by us. In addition, the use of reclaimed lumber and materials may pass our inspection criteria, but may not meet your expectations. Many of our products have inherent qualities that are characteristic of old woods that have had previous lives. All of our publications carry detailed disclaimers about what to expect in any given product. It is the customer’s responsibility to clearly understand our grading standards around our products. In addition, damage may happen during shipping, but may be repairable with a simple touch up. Aidan Gray reserves the right to repair or replace the product at our discretion based on images supplied. We will first attempt to repair any product in place to ensure that we are bringing any issue to the most environmentally friendly resolution possible. We hope that our approach to conservation is acceptable to you as we extend our resources as broadly as possible. Should we be unable to restore a product to our guidelines, we will replace the product if available.
