What is Not Covered?
It is critical all pre-installation and actual installation guidelines be followed stringently. Reasons being, in my 25 year experience from installer to store owner handling dozens of other hardwood brands, issues that brought claims to the table were always related to lack of knowledge in how to install a hardwood floor properly. Rarely were there any manufacturing related causes.

Maintaining A Problem Free Floor
The better professionals will arm you with enough information in how to keep your new floor performing just as good as it looked after the installation is done.
If in the unlikely event you experience product problems the following criteria must be met. Uptown Floors reserves the right to have a professional hardwood flooring inspector make their own independent inspection before any claim is considered.
The installer is responsible for checking moisture conditions prior to the installation. Uptown Floors will not consider moving forward with any claims if the following criteria has not been met.
Moisture testing must be performed before the job starts. This includes random testing of material, sub floor, interior relative humidity and proper crawlspaces or basements. Concrete slabs must be tested along with a general idea of exterior conditions.
NOTE: Cheap or off name brand moisture meters are not acceptable.
1. Proper storage area. Upon delivery flooring must be placed in the area(s) it is to be installed. Garages, basements, out buildings, and non climatized areas are not considered storage areas.
2. Moisture testing must be performed that includes interior relative humidity, sub floor and material itself.
a. Relative humidity must average in the 30-55% range.
b. Sub floor moisture levels must be tested with proper moisture testing equipment. Documentation shall coincide with the average moisture content in your region. (map below)
