Floor Finish On Wood Flooring Is Not Uniform

Article Number

12.23

Condition

FLOOR FINISH ON WOOD FLOORING IS NOT UNIFORM

Acceptable Performance/Condition

Floor finish shall provide a visible uniform surface when viewed without magnification from a normal viewing position.

Warranty

One-Year - Work and Materials. · Damage resulting from normal wear and tear is excluded from the statutory warranty.

Action

Hardwood flooring surfaces not uniform in appearance shall be repaired.

Remarks

Wood is a natural product and variation in colour and grain pattern from one piece of flooring to another is normal. The open grain in some wood surfaces tends to show a rough appearance, however this is a natural property of wood and is acceptable. Reflected light, particularly from large windows, magnifies any irregularity in the floors and should not determine acceptance. This applies to both pre-finished and site-applied wood flooring.
