Manufacturer Defects and Warranty

In rare cases, you may find damage due to the manufacturer. In case of a damage claim, the customer is responsible for sending product samples and/or photographs of the problem to Bestlaminate. If the samples or photographs cannot identify the problem(s), we will schedule a certified inspector visit to look at the floor. After an inspection, we will receive a written report on the inspectors’ findings. If the product has a manufacturing defect, a replacement will be shipped to you at no cost. If the product you originally purchased is discontinued or out of stock, you can select a product from a similar price and quality products group. If a manufacturing defect is not confirmed by the inspector, the customer is responsible for inspection cost.

Installation Damage

Products not installed correctly will not be considered defective and we are not responsible for any costs associated with wrong installation or installation of damaged or wrong materials.

You and/or your installer are responsible for checking the materials before installation. Bestlaminate will not refund labor cost for installed materials. Prior to installation check for: color, finish, any abnormal texture/finish and quality. Double check that you have received the proper product. Should you notice these or any other problems after opening 1 to 3 boxes, do not install the material. Please contact us right away. If you continue to open more than three (3) boxes without contacting us first, we cannot be responsible for replacing the opened boxes.

Quality Issues

If for some reason you are not happy with the quality of your material, do not install the floor and contact us as soon as you can. After opening no more than three (3) cartons, if you notice a possible defect, STOP and contact us right away. Do not continue with the installation. We will not refund you for products that were opened after the first three cartons.
