The variation in color and grain pattern in wood adds to its natural beauty and is not considered an imperfection. Just as no two trees are alike, no two pieces of wood are alike. Environmental factors, including but not limited to artificial / natural light, moisture, cleaners, smoke, etc. may cause the darkening or mellowing of a cabinet over time. This is a natural process and can be expected. This warranty does not cover the natural aging or darkening / mellowing of wood color, the inherent growth characteristics of, or variation in wood.
Cabinet door warping of less than 1/4” is not considered a defect. Cabinet glass doors carry no guarantee against warping. This guarantee does not apply to costs incurred after the product leaves our warehouse. The purchaser agrees to let doors that are warped 1/4” or more to hang for two seasons before replacement is requested. Typically a door will return to its normal flat position once it is acclimated to temperature and humidity conditions. Prior to requesting a replacement for a warped door, please be sure the cabinet or door has been installed properly.
It is the nature of wood to expand and contract to varying degrees depending on climate conditions. Mitered door joints in particular are likely to react to conditions of their environment. Gaps that may develop in door joints due to conditions of their environment are not included or covered by this warranty. This warranty does not cover or apply to hairline cracks of cabinetry; hairline cracks are unavoidable in wood cabinets given the nature of the material.
