The following is a brief recap of some of the characteristics of the wood and finishes on the cabinets you are about to purchase. Please read them carefully. If some of these characteristics concern you, please choose something else. We bring these characteristics to your attention so you will realize that Woodworth Cabinetry will not be held responsible for these variations in your cabinet. It is important to note that wood products claimed as defective are most often the result of atmospheric conditions such as excess moisture and humidity. Woodworth Cabinetry strongly recommends testing the intended location of the products for such conditions prior to installation. WOOD AND COLOR VARIATIONS: Wood is a product of nature, and since no two trees are alike, cabinets may vary in color, texture and grain. Wood characteristics naturally occurring such as variations in color, grain, mineral streaks, pinholes and knots are not considered defects. Color variations in cabinets are also a natural occurrence due to species, age or character of cabinets, or exposure to UV light and sunlight. For these reasons, new or replacement cabinets may not match display samples or existing cabinets. This may result in overall color variations, but is not considered a defect. WOOD DOORS: Wood by nature will undergo expansion and contraction movements year after year as it compensates and adjusts to ever changing atmospheric humidity and temperature conditions. It is very common for center panels on doors to shrink, expand or move during these transitions. Typically, the panel will return to its normal position within a year once it has adjusted to seasonal changes. It is for these same reasons that it is very common for doors to warp during these periods. Doors that are warped up to 1’4” are not considered defective. Note: It is advisable to check if the door was properly installed, since doors that appear warped are very often the result of improper installation. PAINTED FINISHES: Birch is a non-porous, smooth grained wood. Additionally, wood by nature undergoes periods of expansion and contraction while it adjusts to atmospheric conditions mentioned above. As such, finish stress lines may become visible on painted cabinets especially at the joints. Any such occurrence is not considered a defect. GLAZED FINISHES: A glazed finish by character is an uneven finish. Some edges and profiles will have heavier hang up than others and glazing may vary from cabinet to cabinet, door to drawer and item to item. This may result in overall color variations but is not considered a defect.
If a defect does occur within the terms and conditions of this warranty, such defective part will be repaired or replaced by Woodworth Cabinetry at its sole discretion. Woodworth Cabinetry will not provide or pay for the cost of removal of defective product, transportation of defective, repaired or replaced product or installation of repaired or replaced product. Woodworth Cabinetry will not be responsible for any damages to the defective, replaced or repaired product occurred during its shipment or transportation. If any defective item has been discontinued or is not available at the time, Woodworth Cabinetry reserves the right to replace the item with the most similar item available in Woodworth Cabinetry’s inventory at that time. Woodworth Cabinetry cannot guarantee that the finish of any replacement will exactly match the finish and appearance of the defective item due to the natural aging process of wood and finishes of cabinets. Woodworth Cabinetry may require at its discretion that the costumer submit a clear photo, or that a company representative view the item being claimed before honoring this warranty.
To submit a claim covered under this warranty, the original proof of purchase and full payment or certified true copy thereof must be provided to the dealership from whom the purchaser had made the purchase. The dealer will contact you once your claim has been reviewed. Please do not deliver any items to Woodworth Cabinetry for the purpose of claiming this warranty. This warranty shall not cover any items delivered to Woodworth Cabinetry directly without going through a dealership.
