Article Number

12.24

Condition

FINISH ON WOOD FLOORING HAS CRACKED, BLISTERED, BUBBLED, OR PEELED RESULTING IN DETACHMENT OF FINISH

Acceptable Performance/Condition

Site-applied or factory-applied finish on hardwood flooring shall not crack, blister, bubble or peel when properly maintained and used under normal conditions.

Warranty

One-Year - Work and Materials. · Damage noted on the PDI Form will be repaired. If not noted, the homeowner must establish that the damage was caused by the builder. Damage caused by normal wear and tear or improper maintenance is excluded from the statutory warranty.

Action

Defective finished surfaces shall be repaired.

Remarks

Identify any damaged hardwood flooring on the PDI Form to avoid any dispute about whether the damage was caused by the builder. Isolated air bubbles not resulting in detachment of the finish are acceptable. Colour variation in the wood may cause the area of repair to be visible under normal lighting conditions, even when the repair is undertaken in accordance with a manufacturer’s recommendations. Wood is a natural product and variation in colour and grain pattern from one piece of flooring to another is normal. See Also: 12.26 WOOD FLOORING BUCKLES AND DETACHES FROM SUBSTRATE
