Forevermark Cabinetry is constructed from several pieces of solid wood and wood veneers on plywood. Differences in grain pattern and color should be expected. Wood characteristics naturally occurring such as variations in color, grain, mineral streaks and knots are not considered defects. Color variations and color softening in cabinets are a natural occurrence due to species, age, character of cabinets, and exposure to UV light and sunlight. For these reasons, new and/or replacement cabinets may not match display samples and/or existing cabinets. Such variations and changes are not considered defects. This warranty applies only to defects and does not apply to the yellowing and aging of any wood product. Forevermark Cabinetry products are wood products. Extreme conditions will cause any wood product to respond adversely (high/low humidity, temperature, etc) and this warranty does not apply to cabinetry exposed to extreme conditions. Mitered doors joints in particular are more likely to react to conditions of its environment. Gaps that may develop in door joints due to conditions of its environment are not subject to replacement under this warranty. Painted finishes react differently than stained finish with normal wood movement and climatic conditions may result in breaks in finish, recesses, and joint and panel lines. These are considered a normal occurrence and not covered under warranty. Cabinet doors that are warped must be allowed to hang through one seasonal heating cycle. (i.e. through a full summer) before replacement will be considered under this limited warranty. Doors that are warped in either direction not exceeding one-quarter inch (1/4”) do not exceed normal material expectation and are not covered under the terms of this warranty.
