In the event of damage or defect, please notify the delivery personnel/driver, if possible so they can note it.

The Purchaser agrees to change or correct, at its own expense, any material or activity that the Supplier decides is inaccurate, objectionable or misleading or a misuse of the Supplier's name, trademarks, service marks, or the Supplier's logos or copyrighted works.

Governing Law: The parties agree that this Agreement, any sales and there under, or any claim, dispute or controversy (whether in contract, tort, or otherwise, whether preexisting, present or future, and including statutory, common law, and equitable claims) between the Purchaser and the Supplier, arising from or relating to this agreement, its interpretation, or the breach, termination or validity thereof, the relationships which result from this agreement or any related purchase shall be governed by the laws of the State of Minnesota, without regard to conflicts of law rules.
Export: The Purchaser acknowledges that the purchased goods licensed or sold under this Agreement, and the transaction contemplated by this Agreement, which may include non-domestic and exotic wood species, are subject to the customs and export control laws and regulations of the United States ("U.S.") and may also be subject to the customs and export or export laws and regulations of the country in which the Products are manufactured and/or received. The Purchaser acknowledges that it is its sole responsibility to comply with and abide by those laws and regulations.

Wood & Humidity Variations: It is impossible to control the expansion and contraction of wood caused by fluctuating humidity conditions during transport and conditioning in the end-user’s environment. Prior to installation, the end-user is responsible for removing the packaging and allowing the molding Products to acclimatize for a minimum of 48-hours in the room in which they are to be installed.
Once the Purchaser has accepted the Products, the Supplier shall have no responsibility for swelling, splitting or adjustments to the woods. In addition, variations in wood characteristics do exist and the Supplier shall not be held responsible for such variations. Hardwoods exhibit a wide range of colors and grain patterns, all of which change with time and light exposure, both artificial and natural. The Supplier’s wood Products will display this same color variability and range of tones.
Color Blending & Coordination: All of the Supplier’s prefinished wood Products are factory-finished to coordinate with a specific manufacturer’s prefinished hardwood floor. The Supplier strives to create a blend (not a match) between the flooring and the prefinished moldings and accessories.
Changes to Agreement: If any provision of this Agreement is void or unenforceable, the remainder of this Agreement will remain in full force and will not be terminated. Neither party will be liable for any delays resulting from circumstances or causes beyond the party's reasonable control.
