Most Laminate Flooring Warranties – How Are You Covered?

Laminate flooring warranties tend to dwarf those of all other flooring products and can range from 10 to 30 years, with even lifetime warranties occasionally offered.

So what exactly does a laminate flooring warranty cover? Most laminate flooring warranties will cover the following:

It will not stain

It will not wear through to the decorative design surface

It will not fade from sunlight whether direct or indirect

It will not have any manufacturing defects

It is important you follow the manufacturer’s maintenance and installation instructions by the book. Don’t get caught out by ignoring the small print because you’ll often find this will invalidate your warranty. Generally laminate flooring warranties are only valid for the manufacturer’s defects, which means that if you damage your floor during installation or maintenance and it becomes apparent that you did something against the manufacturer’s guidelines, then you will not be covered.

Some examples of breaching the manufacturer’s laminate flooring installation guidelines can include the following:

Material damaged in transit to the place of installation

Accidents or unnecessary abuse

Not following the manufacturer’s installation instructions

Poor workmanship

Using nails to nail the floor down into the sub-floor

Not installing on an even, clean, dirt free or dry surface

Not using an underlay

Not using expansion spacers to allow the floor to expand or contract

Inappropriate removal or replacement of planks

Some examples of breaching the manufacturer’s laminate flooring maintenance guidelines can include the following:

Using bleach or abrasive cleaners

Using steel wool or scouring pads

Using wax or polish (remember, laminate floors are not real wood!)

Damage caused by pet urine

•  Water damage created by excessive use of water from mopping

Also note that laminate flooring warranties rarely cover scratches to the surface, but they will cover fading, stains, moisture damage and premature wear and tear. Be savvy and clarify these points before you purchase
