HOW TO MAINTAIN YOUR WARRANTY
Boards installed with visible defects are not covered under this warranty. Accordingly, before installation, you should examine all boards to ensure they are satisfactory. If any boards are unacceptable due to color, finish, mixing, or any other reason, it is up to you to determine whether the installer should use them, hide them in areas like closets, trim off the imperfection, or not install them at all.
You should plan on being present during installation to ensure that all required procedures are completed and boards with visible defects are not installed. It is important to inspect individual boards and to frequently step back to observe the “whole picture” before installation is complete.
