Limitations & Exclusions   

The Limited Warranties do not cover conditions caused by improper use or maintenance outlined below;

3. Damage caused by furniture, appliances, wheeled items or other such items applied to the face of the material;

4. Installing cabinets or countertops over a floating floor is strictly prohibited and will render this warranty null and void. The Manufacturer will not be liable for any associated replacement or repairs regarding such installations. 

5. Failure to support furniture, appliances or other items of the like with floor protectors that are appropriately sized, made of non-staining felt, such as Safeglides® from Glitsa®, rest flat on the floor and are replaced regularly. The use of rubber, plastic or metal glides is not permitted;

Any splits, cracks, grain raising, checking, edge fracturing, cupping, crowning/peaking, warping, twisting, expansion/contraction, telegraphing, buckling, mold, mildew or chipping that occurs during or after the floor has been installed and as a result of abuse, misuse, improper maintenance or care, improper installation technique and improper environmental conditions including excessive heat from radiant heat systems are not covered under the manufacturer’s warranty;

8. Changes in color due to aging, excessive moisture, exposure to sunlight or UV rays will not be considered a defect. All vinyl flooring is sensitive to UV rays and will exhibit some change in color. Area rugs and large furniture should be moved occasionally, as they block sunlight and may cause the flooring to age at different rates or areas of varying coloration;

9. We, the Manufacturer, do our best to have the most accurate representation of our floors in all marketing material and samples. However, variances may appear from digital photographs, printed photographs, sample material, finish texture, finish sheen and color when compared to the actual material. Any exact matches are to be considered coincidental;

Possible defects should be evaluated by their visibility from a standing position (5 feet up, 2 feet out) under normal lighting conditions;

15. Naturally present characteristics such as variations in grain, color, mineral streaks, knots, nodes, normal differences between color of samples and the color of installed floors and color variations from board to board are not covered by this warranty;
