Understanding Timber and its Natural CharacteristicsBeing an entirely natural product no two pieces of timber are the same. It has a number of inherent growth characteristics such as grain patterns, varying colours, knots and other defects or imperfections. The words ‘defect’ and ‘imperfection’ may sound alarming, but in the context of a natural and variable material such as timber it can mean anything already growing naturally in the tree, for example knots; or it can mean things introduced as part of the production and handling process (sawmilling, drying, machining etc.) such as wane or splits. The industry does not consider these defects or imperfections but features which only further enhance the natural beauty and individuality of a timber product.
TerminationIf, for any reason, this agreement is cancelled or terminated by the Client, KWW will receive payment in full for the phases in progress. In the event that KWW cancels or terminates this agreement, no further payment shall be due other than compensation up to and including time already incurred; as above the Client shall pay for all ordered materials costs onreceipt of appropriate invoice from KWW.
