Article Number

12.39

Condition

LAMINATE FLOORING STRIPS ARE DENTED, SCRATCHED AND/OR CHIPPED

Acceptable Performance/Condition

Performance/Condition:Laminate flooring shall be free of damage such as dents, scratches and/or chips at the time of the PDI.

Warranty

One-Year - Work and materials. · Damages resulting from normal wear and tear are excluded from the statutory warranty.

Action

Laminate flooring not meeting the acceptable condition shall be repaired.

Remarks

Laminate flooring is made up of individual layers (wood particles/paste) pressed and bonded together, with an image on the surface of the substrate or underlying core layer. Identify any damaged laminate flooring on the PDI Form to avoid any dispute about whether the damage was caused by the builder. Only damaged flooring strips require replacement at the time of repair. Slight variances in colour and/or pattern are to be expected when making repairs. For maintenance requirements see manufacturer’s specifications. “Distressed” or specifically finished laminate flooring may have features resembling dents or chips and are not defects. See Appendix A2 “Moisture in Wood and Laminate Floors" for more information.
