STRUCTURAL & MANUFACTURING DEFECT WARRANTY
Issued by: Teka / Plyquet of America
TEKA makes the following limited warranty which extends to the original consumer purchaser only and to no other purchaser or transferee, from the date of the purchase of its engineered hardwood floors, when installed according to manufacturer’s instruction and utilized under approved traffic conditions for its engineered flooring.
LIFE TIME STRUCTURAL WARRANTY
TEKA warrants to the original consumer that its product is of the marked of quality, kind and grade, and that is free from defects in material or workmanship and it is properly installed in accordance with TEKA installation GUIDE provided in each carton. It is however, the responsibility of the purchaser or the purchaser’s installation contractor to pre-inspect the products prior to cutting or installation. If during this pre-installation inspection, any product is found to be unacceptable, that portion may be returned to TEKA for replacement free of charge or in the unlikely event that TEKA is unable to correct the failure after a reasonable attempt; TEKA will refund the purchase price for that portion of the floor.
This warranty does not include labor for repair and replacement of material that has permanently been installed
TEKA warrants that its engineered floors will not warp, twist, cup, nor will its bonded layers delaminate subject to humidity levels in a range between 35%-55%. Uncontrolled conditions outside this range on relative humidity can cause problems to the performance of the floor.
Note: wood is a hygroscopic material. The wood floor may expand due to high relative humidity, and release its moisture due to low relative humidity causing shrinkage to the wood floor. If minor separations do happen, they are not covered by this warranty. They are considered normal performance, and should close when the humidity level returns.
TEKA warrants that, its engineered oak flooring will not be cup or buckle when properly installed over radiant heated subfloor with a surface temperature not exceeding 85 F and proper relative humidity level must be maintained at all times. Only products with a thickness of 14 mm and above are approved for this radiant heat warranty.
TEKA warrants that its adhesives meet all technical specifications for retaining its bond, if the installation directions are complied with. This limited warranty does not, however, cover adhesive breakdowns caused by water damage from flooding, leaking pipes and the like. TEKA does guarantee its bond even when it comes in contact with ordinary moisture. This warranty applies to the adhesives used in the manufacturing of the product- not the adhesive used to install the product.
TEKA’S Warranty does not cover and specifically excludes:
• Indentation, scratches or damages caused by negligence, water, erosion, insects, or spike heeled shoes.
• Damage due to failure to follow all manufacturers’ specific written installation instruction. Damage due to improper maintenance, insufficient maintenance, misuse, or improper modifications not authorized in our written instructions.
• Any normal deterioration due to wear and/or exposure, including fading due to sunlight exposure, any variance in color shade of original product resulting from variation in amount of stain absorbed by the wood during manufacturing. Variation in grain or density of wood will affect the amount of stain absorbed. This is not a product defect.
• Any product regarded and marked as Random, D grade, Second Grade, or other terms as agreed upon, are considered sold as is and claims shall not be entertained.
Wood floor is a natural product; thus the color of the surface may change over time. Color variation on the wood floor could come from aging, natural color changes, sunlight exposure, etc. For these reasons, new flooring may have color variations from, and may not match the displayed samples. This is not considered a defect.
