FLEXX SLATE TERMS AND CONDITIONS
PROCESSING TIME AND SHIPPING
Once received your payment, processing and shipping times vary according to the type of product you have ordered. You will receive an email notification (including a tracking number) when your items are processed and ready to ship to your address.
Processing time estimates for retail customers located in the US (unless otherwise specified or agreed). This is valid for the 48 contiguous states. For other states or countries it may take longer.
- Most of our samples (unless “backordered”) are processed in 2-3 business days and usually will ship FREE of charge via USPS First Mail (except for the full kit of samples, whose shipping costs have to be covered by the buyer).
- For products listed as “In Stock”, the ordinary processing time (before shipping) is 2-3 business days since your funds have cleared. The regular processing time for items displaying the “On-demand Manufacturing” label is 4-6 weeks or less. However, in limited occasions it may take up to 7-8 weeks, for reasons beyond our control. Please plan in advance considering all these possibilities. For items listed as “Out of Stock”, contact us using the form on our Contact Page or give us phone call indicating the details of your order and we’ll try to accommodate your request when possible (depending on product type, quantity, and availability). Also, contact us for larger volumes (over 2,000 sq. ft.).
- Mosaic tiles need 5 to 7 weeks to be processed.
- Art Stone Creations depend on design, size and type for processing.
For (retail) orders placed from OUTSIDE THE US, please take into account that customs duties, clearance fees, and sales tax (depending on your country/province) may apply in addition to your order and they will be required by the time of delivery. (You may wish to check with your Customs Agency. If asked, provide the following HTS code for our product: 2514.00.00.00 – “slate cut rectangular slabs”). While our shipping calculator can provide you with estimated rates for USA and Canada only, we can make arrangements for shipping to other countries, worldwide. Please contact us for assistance.
Although we cannot guarantee the transit times published by our third-party carriers, they’re good estimates of how long it should take for an order to reach your location since the moment your tracking number has been generated and communicated.
No orders are processed on Saturday, Sunday, major holidays or company closures.
All shipping is done by ground service when applicable. FLEXX SLATE cannot ship to AFO/FPO or PO Boxes (except for samples).
Freight service may also be arranged. On request, we can also use your own account with a carrier, if you have one.
Shipping costs are automatically calculated and are shown at the time of checking out. Optionally, you can check the rates by clicking on the “calculate shipping” in the “cart” page. Your delivery time and shipping costs depend on the specific method you select at checkout. Your order’s weight also affects costs. For most of the orders, you should receive a tracking number allowing you to follow your items using the carrier’s online tracking service. If you can’t locate a package that appears as delivered, check your tracking information for delivery details or see if someone else accepted your delivery. If you still can’t find your package, contact your shipping provider or our store.
Freight charges are additional on all items. Palletizing is $25 per pallet. Additional freight charges may apply for residential deliveries, delivery appointments and inside deliveries. Shipping costs vary depending on size and weight of package.
No order will be processed until the funds have cleared in our account. If you choose to pay via bank transfer or check, add 4-5 business days to our processing times estimates. A $35 charge will be imposed for any check returned by the bank.
Cancellation. Our acceptance of an order is final and binding and is not subject to cancellation by the customer. Any request to cancel is to be made in writing within 24 hours of the order date.
FLEXX SLATE LTD. CO. reserves the right at any time after receipt of your order to accept or decline your order for any reason. We reserve the right, but are not obligated, to limit the sales of our products to any person, geographic region or jurisdiction. We may exercise this right on a case-by-case basis. We reserve the right to limit the quantities of any products or services that we offer. All descriptions of products or product pricing are subject to change at any time without notice, at the sole discretion of us. We reserve the right to discontinue any product at any time. Any offer for any product or service made on this site is void where prohibited.
Powered by STRIPE, Inc., one of the most secure payment gateways, and using a 256-bit AES encryption over a SSL connection, our store can accept any of the major credit or debit cards: Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover.
For orders up to $10,000.00, there is no surcharge for using your credit card or PayPal to make purchases. For orders over $10,000.00, a 3% processing fee will be added to your invoice. To avoid this processing fee, you may opt for paying by check, wire transfer, or via ACH.
In case of an authorized refund for a payment made by credit/debit card, the 3% processing fee from the original charge will not be returned (by Stripe, Inc.).
You can also opt to check out with PayPal Express, under the same conditions.
Please make sure you provide your exact billing address and telephone number (i.e. the address and phone number your credit card bank has on file for you). Incorrect information will cause a delay (or even rejection) in processing your order. You agree to provide current, complete, and accurate order and account information for all purchases made at our store. You agree to promptly update your account and other information, including your email address, credit card numbers, and expiration date, so that we can complete your transactions and contact you as needed. Your credit card data is not stored on our servers (all credit card information is stored on our fully PCI-compliant payment processor’s servers and your account is connected to it through the use of a secured token).
CLAIMS, CANCELLATIONS, RETURNS
Claims. We are not responsible for damages or loss occurring in transit. Merchandise must be inspected immediately upon receipt. Damages or non-conformities must be reported to Customer Service within 48 hours of receipt. Customer is responsible to note specifics about damages at time of delivery. Take pictures whenever is possible. In the event of loss or damage, immediately report to the delivery carrier. If damage is concealed and not determined until the item is unpacked, keep the packaging and notify the carrier immediately for an inspection. Customer Service must be notified of missing or incorrect parts no more than 48 hours after receipt.
Cancellations. It is possible to cancel an order by submitting a request at [email protected] within the following 24 hours after making your purchase. In case of an authorized refund for a payment made by credit or debit card, the 3% processing fee from the original charge (by Stripe, Inc.) will not be returned.
Returns. Please make your purchase carefully as we DO NOT ACCEPT RETURNS. We highly recommend all our customers to order samples or even one 2’x4′ panel before their final purchase. In case of an authorized return (like for receiving a different product or size), the items must be packed and shipped in the same conditions as when received by the customer. If upon arrival at Flexx Slate’s facilities the returned items present damages due to improper or negligent packaging, we will reserve the right to decline a refund.

FLEXX SLATE® 1-Year Limited Warranty
Made of real slate, FLEXX SLATE® products inherit the durability of the natural material. They are warranted to be free from defects in composition and workmanship.
The manufacturing warranty of FLEXX SLATE® Stone Panels is for 1 (one) year from the date of purchase, subject to sealing the stone veneer surface & edges properly. Defect is defined as a shortfall in the product to perform to FLEXX SLATE® specifications as disclosed in product literature, within industry allowable tolerances as set forth in standard, national industry protocols. This one-year express warranty is the sole warranty extended and replaces any statutory warranties to the maximum extent allowable by law. All warranty claims must be reported immediately. All products must be inspected prior to installation. If visual defects or non-conformities apparent prior to application are not reported before installing the product, the warranty will be voided.
THIS WARRANTY DOES NOT APPLY TO DAMAGE OR DEFECTS RESULTING FROM SHIPPING, ACCIDENT, ALTERATION, MISUSE, TAMPERING, NEGLIGENCE, PHYSICAL OR CHEMICAL ABUSE AND IMPROPER INSTALLATION (see the “Installation Guide” for references). INCIDENTAL AND CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARE SPECIFICALLY DISCLAIMED. ALL OTHER WARRANTIES (INCLUDING ANY WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY OF FITNESS FOR ANY PARTICULAR PURPOSE) ARE HEREBY EXCLUDED. THE FOREGOING SHALL CONSTITUTE THE SOLE REMEDY OF THE CUSTOMER.
FLEXX SLATE® is subject to variation in technical specifications, including C.O.F., due to inherent variability in the raw materials and production process. Express technical specifications are not guarantees of minimum or maximum thresholds of performance.
Natural stone products are mined and cut from natural formations. FLEXX SLATE LTD. CO. does not warrant natural stone products for shade, size, thickness, warping, cleft variations, surface finish variations, or other natural variances on stone products. Some cracking lines may also be present on the stone surface, as they possibly occur inherently in the formation of the sedimentary rock.
Photographic color images may not be an exact product match.
Implied Warranties Limited in Duration
Any implied warranty applicable to the product sale, including the implied warranty of merchantability or the implied warranty of fitness for a particular purpose is limited in duration to the duration of this written warranty or the maximum statutory period, whichever is less. Some states do not allow limitations on implied warranty duration, so the above limitation may not apply to you.
The Federal Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act limits disclaimers of implied warranties involving consumer products. To the maximum extent allowable by federal and state law, this warranty supplements or supersedes federal and state consumer goods warranty protections.
Implied Warranty of Fitness for a Particular Purpose
Important: before using, customer shall determine the suitability of the product for its intended use and user alone assumes all risks and liability whatsoever in connection therewith.
FLEXX SLATE LTD. CO. provides detailed information in its product literature with regard to appropriate stone applications. In these specified applications, FLEXX SLATE LTD. CO. limits the duration of the implied warranty of fitness for a particular purpose to one-year or the maximum statutory period prescribed by law, whichever is less. Failure to comply with recommended applications voids this warranty.
Unless specifically stated otherwise, floor installation refers to interior residential applications only. FLEXX SLATE does not recommend its products for use on roofs. Local building codes may dictate minimum tile performance specifications. FLEXX SLATE LTD. CO. does not warrant product installations that violate building codes.
Keep in mind that concrete and masonry substrates must be at least 28 days old. Hydrostatic pressure conditions and vapor transmission cannot exceed 3 lbs. per 1,000 sq. ft. (1.36 kg per 92.9 m2) per 24 hours using a calcium chloride test (reference ASTM).
Remedy Limitation & Disclaimer
If a defect in materials or workmanship is discovered within the one-year period, FLEXX SLATE LTD. CO. will either refund the price of the product or provide a replacement product after a reasonable number of attempts to remedy product defects. Buyer’s remedy is limited to replacement or repair of the defective product. No consequential (including, but not limited to labor and lost profits) or incidental damages are recoverable. FLEXX SLATE disclaims all express warranties not contained in this limited express warranty. Any representations made in connection with the sale of this product that differs from the terms of this warranty are not valid and should be brought to the attention of FLEXX SLATE immediately.
Legal Notice. Warning: Tile and installation products contain chemicals known to the state of California to cause cancer, birth defects, reproductive harm, respiratory harm or other health problems. For more product-specific information on chemical content, contact FLEXX SLATE LTD. CO.
How To Make a Warranty Claim
- The original purchaser must notify FLEXX SLATE Sales Service Center or an authorized representative in writing 15 days of the occurrence of any defect.
- After notification, FLEXX SLATE or an authorized representative will inspect and/or test the product for defect and complete a Product Claim Action form. No claim will be honored without product inspection by FLEXX SLATE or an authorized representative.
- Upon determination that the product defect claim is valid, FLEXX SLATE will notify the purchaser in writing. FLEXX SLATE reserves the right to repair, replace or refund the originally-purchased product.
There are no guarantees or warranties, expressed or implied, beyond the terms of this expressed written warranty.
