Limited Warranty for Residential Finish Wear
Hampton Hardwoods multi-layer UV cured finish utilizes Aluminum Oxide to provide superior resistance to surface wear. Hampton Hardwoods will warrant surface wear for 25-50 years under normal residential use and a 5 year limited commercial warranty and conditions, provided maintenance guidelines are strictly followed. In the event that the surface layer wears or peels off Hampton Hardwoods will replace the affected planks or recoat the affected area provided the affected area is greater than 20% of the floor. NOTE: Gloss reduction and surface scratching are not considered surface wear and are not covered under this warranty.
Who is Covered Under These Limited Warranties
These limited warranties apply to you only if you: (1) are the original purchaser of the Hampton Hardwoods floor. (2) have paid in full for your hardwood floor, (3) have proof of purchase and (4) have purchased the hardwood floor for your own personal residential use and not for resale. These warranties are not transferable or assignable.
Wood is a natural product containing natural variations in color, tone and graining. Hampton Hardwoods cannot warrant against natural variations such as mineral streaks, small knots and grain variations from plank to plank. Responsibility for final inspection and approval falls to the customer and installer prior to permanent installation.
During the warranty period, should you have any problems with your Hampton Hardwoods floor, please contact the floor covering dealer who sold the product within 30 days from the date the problem occurs. The flooring dealer will arrange through Hampton Hardwoods to have the floor inspected. Please note that Hampton Hardwoods must be given a reasonable opportunity to inspect the floor prior to the determination of any coverage or remedy, which shall be no less than 30 days after you report the problem. Your refusal to provide such an opportunity for inspection will void these warranties. All inspections will be conducted in accordance with NWFA guidelines.
Hampton Hardwoods floors are not warrantied against damage caused by man made or natural disasters, including but not limited to leaking or broken plumbing, landscape/irrigation watering, fire, flood, earthquake, insect infestation or standing water during or after construction. In extreme low humidity (below 35%) planks may shrink or exhibit surface checking characteristics. In extreme high humidity (above 60%) planks may grow or exhibit crowning characteristics. These symptoms are not manufacturing defects and are not covered under warranty. The use of a humidifier and/or dehumidifier is recommended to maintain the proper humidity level of 35-60%.

This warranty is a limited lifetime warranty for all first quality Hampton Hardwoods engineered products. Solid products are excluded.
