Valley Flooring warrants that the products have been manufactured in compliance with the grading rules of Valley Flooring, and will be free from manufacturing defects. Manufacturing defects to not include natural wood characteristics such as mineral streaks, knots, grain variations, normal minor differences between color of samples and the color of installed floors, color variations from board to board, or minor width variation. Due to the nature of wide plank (3″ and wider), some variation is to be expected.
Hardwood flooring, being a natural product, will continue to expand and contract through heating and non-heating seasons. Properly installed hardwood floors may consequently experience some separation between the boards at different times during the year. If such separation occurs, it is not considered a product defect, and is not covered by this warranty. These are all normal characteristics and are not defects.
