The approximate retail value of the Prize is $5,000.00 CDN and does not include any cost associated with installation of the project.

If for any reason the winner did not order sufficient product and/or accessories for the DIY project the first time any additional orders will be at the winners sole and absolute expense including any shipping charges required to deliver the product (bottom of driveway) and accessories to his/her Canadian primary residence. If the winner’s DIY project requires less than $5,000.00 CDN worth of FUSION™ STONE product and accessories the difference between the cost of the order and the prize value of $5,000.00 CDN will not be issued to the winner in cash or in any other form such as a credit. The remaining balance will be forfeited without any liability to the Sponsor. If for any reason whatsoever the winner does not place his/her order with the Sponsor by May 31, 2018 the Prize will be forfeited without liability to the Sponsor.
