competitive in the market. We assure you that you will not find a lower price at any other floor covering retailer in your area. However, if within 30
days of making your purchase, you should happen to find a lower advertised price on first-quality merchandise of the same brand and style as the flooring .
you purchased, we will happily refund the difference. It’s our Price Protection Guarantee and it’s simple. Just present your retailer with the competitor’s
advertisement or written estimate for the same floor and you take home the difference in price! Price Protection applies to materials only.
Lifetime Installation Warranty
Your Flooring America®/Flooring Canada® retailer guarantees the quality of workmanship to be professional and in keeping with industry standards.
Should installation service be required attributable to the original installation of your flooring during the life of the manufacturer's wear warranty
(which varies) from the time your flooring was installed, present your sales receipt, and the store where you made your purchase will return and provide
that service at no cost to you. This warranty is valid only for original owner-occupied residential installation by your store and will be invalidated if
problem is due to improper maintenance or cleaning, abuse, excessive moisture, vandalism, or alteration.
The following additional conditions are not considered installation-related problems and are not covered beyond this limited-installation warranty:
Carpet: Visible seams normally required for installation.
Tile Flooring: Tile and grout cracking due to subfloor deflection or foundation settling.
Hardwood Flooring: Gapping between boards and moisture-related issues.
Laminate Flooring: Moisture-related issues.
Vinyl Flooring: Visible seams normally required for installation.
Satisfaction Assurance Replacement Warranty
All our floors carry a 30-day Replacement Warranty. If at any time during the first 30 days after your flooring is installed you wish to change your new
flooring for any reason (other than as expressly provided below), present your sales receipt, and the store where you made your purchase will replace it
with another style or color of flooring of equal value. Should you wish to replace the flooring with a flooring upgrade, you may do so by paying the
difference in price. No monetary compensation will be paid if a floor of lower price is selected. This is a one time replacement only and does not include
replacement of cushion or reinstallation charges. Simply call your retailer within 30 days of installation and indicate that you wish to choose another
floor under the Replacement Warranty, and provide your sales receipt. This is a replacement warranty and does not apply to matters covered by other
warranties. Any replacement product cannot be the same style and color as the original purchase. Replacement quantity must be the same as the original
purchase. This warranty is valid only for original owner-occupied residential installations. No replacements will be made with respect to flooring that has
been glued down, subject to abuse, vandalism, alteration or damage caused by smoke, fire, flood, wind, lightning, or any disaster. This warranty applies
only to the original purchaser of flooring that has been professionally installed by your retailer. Customer is responsible for all labor and reinstallation
charges of all materials, including, but not limited to, flooring, walls, and countertops.
A 2% variance on material widths is within mill tolerances and is agreed to be acceptable within the industry limits. The amount of materials sold is
compatible to measurement of floor covering and the material dimensions. Material overage of approximately 10% is required in order to cut, seam, and
trim materials. In some instances the amount of padding or underlayment installed may be less. The Seller has taken this variation into full account in
establishing pricing. Installation charges are based on the amount of material needed and not on the installed amount.
Color match to samples will vary from dye lot to dye lot. Buyer agrees to accept color variances that fall within industry-established ranges. Shading,
pooling, water marking, shedding, fluffing or pile crushing do not constitute manufacturing defects. These are inherent characteristics of all pile fabrics.
Missing tufts in looped carpet is not a defect and can be remedied by reinserting missing tufts by a qualified technician. Hardwood, cork, and bamboo are
natural materials that will have color variations such as variations from heartwood to sapwood, mineral streaks, and variations in the grain. Temperature
and humidity must be maintained within manufacturers' recommendations to avoid excessive expansion and contraction.
Despite every effort to accurately duplicate each product's color when shown on our website, actual colors may vary. Due to monitor and resolutions settings,
subtle variations in color and surface texture may not be fully revealed when viewing products on our website. We make every attempt to give you a good
representation of the available colors for each product available in our stores. For an accurate representation of what a product will look like, we
recommend that you view the sample of the product in a store. Product and color availability varies by store.
