9.WOOD FLOORING GRADES AND GRADING GUIDELINES
9.1 Please see Barham & Sons Grading Guidelines. This can be downloaded from the website at www.barhamandsons.com.
10 TOLERANCE GUIDELINES / PRODUCT VARIATION
10.1 Widths +/- 10mm Depths +/-1mm Wear layer +/- 1mm
10.2 Lengths: no minimum or maximum length can be guaranteed. Please note that due to lengths of planks some bowing may occur along the length. The customer notes that this is not a defect in the board but a natural occurrence of the material and should see the Fitting Guidelines for information on how to overcome bowed boards. The bow should not exceed the tolerance level of 12.5% of the length of the board.
10.3 Colour variation: colour variation is to be expected with our hardwood products. Barham and Sons reserve the right to make the final decision as to whether to product supplied is within colour tolerance and allowance for the finish.
10.4 Gloss levels: Due to the nature of a gloss finish, any scratch marks or natural grain imperfections may be accentuated by a higher gloss level. Furthermore; over an extended period of use, the gloss level may decrease which is a natural aspect of the surface finish. These qualities are not a product defect.
10.5 Colour Saturation: Due to the manufacturing processes, we cannot guarantee 100% saturation of colour into the grain of the oak.
10.6 Planks from our ranges (especially our more “white washed” products with liming effects) may present a characteristic called “clouding” within the grain. This is due to the finishing process and is not a defect within the product but an inherent part of it.
10.7 Barham and Sons colours are created using a partially translucent finish so the end tone is defined by the individual plank colour. As oak is a natural product, this means that colour variation can be expected in all orders.
10.8 Engineered plank constructions: we reserve the right to supply an alternative construction of product without notification, however we will endeavour to notify the customer where possible.
10.9 Bevels: The company reserves the right to vary the style, size and number of sides of the micro-bevel supplied on the order and this can vary from the type of micro-bevel stated in our literature or invoices.
10.10 Knots & Splits: The Company offers a range of products that include knots being filled with a 2 part resin filler. This colour filler may be of any natural colour and several colours of filler can feature within one order or plank. Although most of our products are supplied with filled knots, sometimes during the production processes the filler can be removed or fall out. This can be left or filled on site and is not a product defect.
10.11 Product names are not indicative of the origin of the product.
10.12 We are entitled to supply an alternative product to match as closely as possible to the product you have ordered. We will provide you with as much notice as possible or as soon as the necessity becomes apparent and you will have the option to accept the alternative product or cancel your order.
10.13 We offer various wood finishes and textures (including brushed & cross sawn) that product specific can include random saw marks across the face of the flooring with hit & miss saw cuts to make a rustic sawmill sawn effect floor, incorporating side edge breakout and splits , surface undulation & wear layer variation ,Knots, splits and edges ban be broken out , filled or unfilled as well as hand-contour sanded & tumbled. The production process combined with tanning within the oak can also enhance the natural timber colour variation and surface texture creating more varied light to dark colour tone difference within the floor. For more information regarding your specific selection please consult the office.
11 GUARANTEE’S AND SUITABILITY
11.1 The company guarantees that the flooring will not wear through the complete depth of the hardwood wear layer as a result of normal domestic environment for the period of the guarantee (not including any pre-finish finish supplied), provided that the flooring is maintained strictly in accordance with its recommendations.
11.2 The company warranties regarding under-floor heating are as follows: Solid oak will not be guaranteed for under-floor heating unless otherwise specified. Engineered flooring will be covered by the under-floor heating recommendation to a maximum of 220mm wide.
11.3 Stipulations for under-floor heating are as follows: due to the fact that there are a variety of under-floor heating types, a standard guarantee cannot apply and recommended installation guidelines and general usage can only be advised. The details of the recommendation will define that the product will remain in a stable condition after installation; however, engineered wood still has a tendency towards seasonal movement eg. opening and closing of joints. This does not include any high RH or excess moisture or spillage, which are excluded in the recommendation. IT IS VERY IMPORTANT that you follow our guidelines leaflet as it contains all relative information with regards to the installation over underfloor heating, including notes about the install area prior to, during and after the installation. Failure to follow the recommendations and instructions on our sheet may result in failure of the floor which will not be the responsibility of the company.
11.4 The maximum temperature of heat emissions for under-floor heating at any one time to be sustained by the flooring is a maximum of 26 degrees Celsius at ground level.
11.5 The guarantee only applies where the flooring has been correctly maintained in accordance with the companies guidelines and does not cover damage arising out of spills or leaks, normal wear and tear or scratches and cuts caused by sharp objects (stiletto heels), animals or furniture, nor does it cover damage resulting from excessive humidity, temperature changes or damage resulting from a defective sub floor, or any site variables (including where the customer has attempted to modify, alter or repair the floor in any way). It also does not cover wilful damage, abnormal storage or working conditions, accident, negligence by you or by any third party including but not limited to upon the installation of the products, where you or any third party fails to operate, install, protect, maintain or use the products in accordance with our oral or written instructions, user or manufacturers guidelines or good trade practice. Any marks, stains or grease spots from food stuffs will not be covered where no attempt has been made to clean it up in a reasonable period of time. The company deems a “reasonable period” as half an hour.
11.6 The customer notes that wood floors are made from a natural material and each floor will be individual with its own colour variation and patterns, which are prone to contraction and expansion depending on climatic conditions. This is inherent in the material used and should not be considered a defect in the flooring.
11.7 The company does not accept liability for defects resulting from incorrect installation when the company has supplied the flooring but has not carried out the installation. This includes where a fitter has been recommended by us – please see section 13 for further details.
11.8 The guarantee does not affect your statutory rights. Subject as expressly provided in these conditions and, except in cases where the flooring is sold to a person dealing as a consumer as defined in the Unfair Contract Terms Act 1977, all guarantees, conditions or other terms implied by statute or common law are excluded to the fullest extent permitted by law. 11.9 Except in respect of death or personal injury caused by the company’s negligence, the company shall not be liable to the customer by reason of representation unless fraudulent or any implied warranty, condition or other term or any duty in common law or under express term of the contract for any indirect, special or consequential losses or damages whether for loss of profit or otherwise costs, expenses or other claims for compensation whatsoever, whether caused by the negligence of the company, its employees, agents or otherwise which arise out of or in connection with the contract and the entire liability of the company shall not exceed the full price.
11.10 The company reserves the right to deny responsibility if, in our opinion, our guidelines and conditions have not been followed.
11.11 Because wood flooring is a hygroscopic, natural material with a tendency to expand and contract, avoid areas that are humid and that could present water entry problems, e.g. bathrooms and utility rooms. However, if the end user or contractor wishes to install into a wet area at their own behest; any issues resulting from this will not be recognised by our customer care policy. Also, due to the moisture levels that are inherent in the areas; we cannot recommend or warrant this product for use in sub-level rooms eg. basement rooms.
12. DEFINITION OF WARRANTY’S
12.1 Solid & Engineered flooring - The warranty is based upon the top layer not wearing through within the given time period. (A wear layer on solid oak is considered the oak down to the upper side of the tongue.) This is based upon a domestic location and is not inclusive of the actual surface finish of the product; it refers to the life expectancy of the top layer only.
12.2 Other flooring products: Carpet/LVT/Laminate/Natural Floors/Vinyl/Others – The warranty is defined by the manufacturer of the individual product so this varies. Please ask your salesperson for further details.
13. INSTALLATION QUOTES AND WARRANTIES
13.1 Where a company is recommended or instructed by Barham and Sons Ltd to install the products you have purchased, please note that Barhams act as an agent only, authorised to quote prices and dates for installation on behalf of the installer. The quality of the workmanship and the installation suitability is guaranteed by the installer, as does the responsibility for guaranteeing the install, and so it is their responsibility to warrant their work as suitable. The installer reserves the right to replace or repair any installation which is deemed not to the manufacturers standard. Barham and Sons can act on your behalf, in a limited capacity, to negotiate and deal with the installers, should it become necessary. Barham and Sons Ltd. (Unless otherwise agreed in writing or on your invoice) act as a supplier of materials only.
13.2 Waste from the flooring installation itself will not be removed from site, as it is deemed to be owned by the customer and it is the customers responsibility to dispose the waste in a responsible manner. Old flooring from uplifts is also the responsibility of the customer. In the event that the customer cannot dispose of the waste materials, Barham and Sons can offer disposal, priced depending upon the quantity of materials to be removed. This cost is to be paid prior to removal.
13.3 As suppliers of material only, Barham and Sons are not responsible for installing the products and we shall have no liability for any damage to the products or property, person or otherwise during installation. Any guidelines or instructions that we may provide in relation to installation are to act as a manufacturers guide only. They are not installation location or product specific and should not be relied upon for the proper installation of the products which should be carried out by an appropriately skilled professional.
14.1 Please see Barham & Sons Timber Installation & UFH Guidelines. This can be downloaded from the website at www.barhamandsons.com. Only flooring as stated on the invoice as so are warranted for installation over under floor heating systems, were floors are warranted due to the fact that we as the manufacturer are not in control of your total installation and the onus is on the end user to control their environment by way of temperature control and this control cannot be documented, in the event of any delamination or shrinkage, this cannot be defined as a manufacturing defect and therefore is not the responsibility of the manufacturer to repair or replace.
15 INSTALLATION GUIDELINES
15.1 Please see Barham & Sons Timber Installation & UFH Guidelines. This can be downloaded from the website at www.barhamandsons.com.
16.ON SITE CHECKS AND RECORDS
16.1 Prior to the application of the sealer DPM to the concrete, it is recommended that on site moisture testing and inspection takes place. It is essential that the installer makes a note of all site readings taken. It is the responsibility of the installer and homeowner to ensure that these controls are carried out. Failure to do so may result in issues with the installation that are not covered by our ongoing customer care. The customer must check that a DPM has been used throughout the installation area, including walls, doors and windows to ensure that there is not risk of moisture contamination. We as the manufacturer state that sealing of the sub floor prior to the installation is necessary and must take place to encapsulate any moisture in the screed
16.2 Ensure that the sub floor is level prior to the application of sealer / primer. Always use acrylic based latex compounds for the levelling of cement based sub floors, or the levelling compound recommended by the manufacturer of the sealer. The underfloor heating system can be run during the application of the sealer at a maximum of 20 degrees, but the underfloor heating must be turned off at least 48 hours prior to installation of the flooring, although it should be noted that it is imperative that you follow the instructions of the manufacturer of the sealer itself.
16.3 The recommended moisture emission from the sub floor should be a maximum of 6% based upon readings taken using a Tramex moisture meter. A note of these readings should be taken prior to the installation for your records. 16.4 Due to the fact that we as the manufacturer are not in control of your total installation and the onus is on the end user to control their environment by way of temperature control and this control cannot be documented, in the event of any delamination or shrinkage, this cannot be defined as a manufacturing defect and therefore is not the responsibility of the manufacturer to repair or replace. However, we reserve the right to repair or replace the floor if it is deemed to be a manufacturing fault by an agreed Barham & Sons third party. This does not affect your statutory rights.
