LIMITED WARRANTY – LUXURY VINYL PLANK & TILE FLOORING
EarthWerks warrants their luxury vinyl plank and tile flooring products to be free of manufacturing defects for the length of time set forth below, from the date of purchase. This warranty applies only to the original purchaser and is not transferrable.
This Limited Warranty applies provided the recommended installation guidelines and maintenance procedures are followed. Please refer to installation guidelines in each carton for complete details on installation and maintenance or visit www.EarthWerks.com for the most current installation guidelines and maintenance procedures. EarthWerks reserves the right to inspect any claim and request photographs and/or samples prior to approving such claim.
EarthWerks will repair or replace any flooring which is proven to be defective, at the sole discretion of EarthWerks. EarthWerks will repair or replace defective material at EarthWerks’ sole discretion, with new EarthWerks product of the same or similar style, size, color, grade, and gauge. EarthWerks will pay reasonable labor costs if flooring was professionally installed. Products that were damaged in shipment, from improper handling or improper installation would not constitute a valid claim under this Limited Warranty.
EarthWerks reserves the right to final judgment regarding the approval for any repair or replacement of EarthWerks product.
WHAT THE WARRANTY COVERS:
PRE-INSTALLATION LIMITED WARRANTY
EarthWerks warrants that the product is free of manufacturing and visual defects. You and/or your installer should carefully inspect each piece prior to installation. Any pieces that appear to have defects should be set aside and should not be installed. EarthWerks will not be responsible for any claim for products installed with known manufacturing or visual defects. EarthWerks will not pay labor costs for flooring installed with known manufacturing or visual defects.
MANUFACTURING LIMITED WARRANTY
EarthWerks flooring is warranted to be free from manufacturing defects for a period of one year from the date of purchase. Should a defect occur within the stated warranty period, EarthWerks will at its sole discretion, repair or replace that portion of the flooring determined to be defective, with new EarthWerks product of the same or similar style, size, color, grade, and gauge.
WEAR LIMITED WARRANTY
EarthWerks flooring is produced with a protective wear layer. EarthWerks warrants that there will be no wear-through of the wear layer for the number of years indicated in the table below for each flooring type and specific wear layer thickness, due to normal wear, traffic for recommended maintenance. “Wear-through” refers to complete loss of the wear layer so that the printed design layer is changed or affected. Should wear-through of the wear layer occur, EarthWerks will at its sole discretion, repair or replace that portion of the flooring determined to be defective, with new EarthWerks product of the same or similar style, size, color, grade, and gauge.
If corrective action is taken on an existing defect, you will continue to receive limited warranty coverage for the remaining period of your original limited warranty.
Labor must be provided by a certified professional flooring installer, using the guidelines put forth by EarthWerks in the installation guidelines and maintenance procedures. The cost of repair or replacement labor by a professional installer will be paid according to reasonable and customary labor rates approved by the EarthWerks Resolutions Department.
