Solid timber flooring warranties

As solid timber flooring is much more durable than timber laminate flooring or engineered timber flooring, the warranties like how long it can be used has become the mostly concerned issue by clients.No suppliers or manufacturers would promise all solid timber with same warranties because of the different wood natural properties.Before purchase we must consider following pre-conditions.

II. Hardwood Timber Quality Warranties

Before purchase,clients should be aware of which wood species they are choose & what timber grade they would use.Different timber species with different properties in hardness,dimension stability,Color tone contrast,termite resistance & sunlight sensibility etc.So for the hardwood timber quality warranties are all based on these preconditions,clients should make clear all these details in case after installation complaints occurs.
