Warranty of Laminate Flooring

RESIDENTIAL WARRANTY

LAWSON warrants the Laminate Flooring in its original manufactured state to the original purchaser from the date of purchase, that the floor will not wear through (affecting more than ten percent of total floor installation as a result of normal foot traffic), fade, or stain under normal residential use, and only if installed, cared, maintained,
and placed in service conditions according to manufacturer’s instructions.

Product is warranted to the original purchaser for a period of 25 years to 50 years (Crown Premium Collection) after date of purchase for manufacturing defect. Installation error is not covered.

The original purchaser must own and reside in the home where the product is installed.

The decorative layer of laminate flooring is designed to resist color changes from light exposure. Nonetheless, exposure to light will affect flooring’s appearance after extended period of time. The level of change depends on the intensity of light and length of exposure. LAWSON Floors does not warrant against this type of appearance change in the laminate flooring.

Any product sample, photo, or model is intended for demonstrative purposes only, and does not represent a warranty of any kind. Warranty does not cover variations between sample/photo/model and flooring.

It is important that the product be installed correctly and maintained properly. The warranty covers finish, wear, stain, and fading, under normal conditions in a residential installation. In the event of a claim, LAWSON floors
reserves the right to either repair or replace product. The warranty covers the cost of the products only.
Transportation costs, Labor and Installation costs, and accessories are not included in the warranty.
