WARRANTY

www.kitchenreface.com gives a one year limited warranty on all products against manufacturing defects. Once, the customer has submitted a warranty claim via the RGA process outlined above, and that claim has been approved www.kitchenreface.com will process it as detailed under the RGA section of the document. www.kitchenreface.com is never under any circumstances liable to a customer beyond the cost of its goods on the original invoice where they appear and any associated freight involved in the return or replacement of such goods. Under no circumstance will www.kitchenreface.com be held liable for labor, material, travel time, shop time, or any other cost, expense, or consequential damage incurred by the customer above and beyond the original product cost and associated freight. This warranty specifically excludes any and all claims for the following problems because they are caused by neglect or abuse in the field and are not considered manufacturing defects after two weeks have passed from the date the product leaves the factory.

1. Bow and Twist.
2. Wood splits.
3. Joint separation.

The reason these are not warrantable issues after the two-week grace period has expired is because wood doors must be stored, installed, and cared for very carefully.
www.kitchenreface.com recommends that our product be stored in a climate-controlled environment where the relative humidity is held between 40% to 50%. Stile and rail joints may open slightly from humidity and / or heating and cooling changes. This is normal and is not considered a defect.

www.kitchenreface.com will not warrant any product that has been improperly stored or exposed to direct moisture or moisture conditions outside the 40% to 50% range.

PRODUCT SPECIFICATIONS

Warpage: When wood is exposed to variations in temperature and humidity the moisture content in the wood reflects these changes and its natural response is to grow or shrink in the direction of the grain or slightly twist or bow. Doors up to 24″ wide and 45″ in height have a warp tolerance of .25″. Doors exceeding these dimensions are not warranted against warping. Frames only and recessed panel doors up to 24″ wide and 40″ in height have a warp tolerance of .25″. Doors and frames exceeding these dimensions are not warranted against warping.

Color and grain match of wood- Please review these guidelines on our web site defining expectations concerning wood species offered by www.kitchenreface.com; Wood Information

Door Joinery: Because wood is susceptible to changes in temperature and humidity joinery used to connect the stile and rail material to form the door frame can expand and contract exposing visible gaps. Staining and finishing the door can enhance this visibility. Lighter colored paint finishes in particular (i.e. white paint) actually accent this gap making it stand out even more. A gap of .010” is acceptable and would not be considered a defect.

Size Tolerances: Outside size tolerances for all www.kitchenreface.com products will be +/- 1/16 of an inch.

Min/Max sizes: Because we only accept orders via our online ordering system min/max part sizes are flagged by our system. In most cases we will still accept orders on parts out of our specifications as long as it can be shipped and does not exceed the maximum size our equipment can process.
