GENERAL ITEMS

  • "We cannot price what we cannot see". The Estimate will include standard removal conditions and fees. If upon trying to remove the existing floor we find existing under pad stuck to the floor in area's or multiple layers of flooring which we could not see when we measured, there may be extra charges. These extra fees will be discussed and agreed upon by Downtown Flooring Co. Ltd. and the customer prior to continuing the work.
  • If upon removal of existing flooring we find issues with the subfloor underneath that we could not see there maybe extra charges to make the subfloor good to receive the new flooring. The better your sub floor the better the finished product looks and performs. These extra charges will be agreed upon by Downtown Flooring Co. Ltd and the customer prior to continuing the work.
  • All installations or deliveries are part of the construction process and will cause disruption, dust and a mess. The job site will require a final clean up by the customer. The Installer will do a basic construction clean up only.
  • No refunds or returns unless specified in writing on the invoice. All returns subject to restocking, administration and delivery fees. The refund and amount will be paid to the customer once received from the supplier.
  • This estimate or invoice represents a contract price for specified materials in designated areas. All over shipped material after the installation is complete belongs to Downtown Flooring Co. Ltd. The last opened box will be left on site. No credits will be issued for this material.
  • All natural products are subject to color and shade variations. As a natural product, wood contains inherent variations in color, grain and appearance and other visual imperfections. All natural floors are manufactured in accordance with accepted industry standards which permit a defect tolerance that does not exceed 5%. These defects may be the result of manufacturing or naturally occurring characteristics of the material. It is recommended that a 5% cutting or grading allowance be added to the total square footage when calculating the quantity of flooring required. It is the sole and joint responsibility of the installer and owner to conduct a quality inspection of all flooring prior to installation. All pieces of flooring should be examined for quality of manufacture, finish and color. If the product quality is deemed unacceptable, it should not be installed.
  • IT IS EXTREMLY IMPORTANT TO MAINTAIN THE PRODUCT AND HUMIDITY LEVELS AS PER MANUFACTURERS SPECIFICATIONS. See their Web Site for exact details. All flooring will react to changes in the environment. Hardwood flooring for example with excessive heat or dryness (lack of moisture) will gap or split in the winter and you will need to add moisture with a humidifier. Excessive humidity (to much moisture) will result in cupping and buckling. In a floating floor application to much humidity will result in excessive expansion of the floor. This will cause a soft spot and or air pockets under the floor. So you will have to have your Air conditioner working or de humidifier to control the humidity levels in the summer.
  • Due to dye lot variations in the manufacturing process the carpet color may vary slightly from the sample shown.
  • Seams and staple marks may be visible in carpet depending on the quality, color, lighting and location. We will endeavor to place the seams in the least visible area.
  • Carpet on stairs will not be installed in one continuous piece unless specified and paid for by the customer. Installing carpet on stairs in multiple pieces is within industry standards.
  • All product warranties come directly from the manufacturer or distributer and are not the responsibility of Downtown Flooring Co. Ltd.
  • The Installer and Downtown Flooring Co. Ltd. guarantee the workmanship of the installation for one year from the date of installation.
