WARRANTY

Natural color variation and mineral stains may occur in wood products; these are not defects. Defects in material or workmanship must be reported upon receipt and prior to finishing or installation. Wood products must be main­tained under stable temperature and humidity conditions to remain under warranty. Prompt and proper sealing and finishing is essential to maintain wood stability. CHP is not responsible for the appearance of field-finished material. All doors must be finished six sides. Replacement requests are subject to CHP approval and must be made during the 30-day period following the acceptance date of the material. CHP liability shall not exceed the replacement cost of our product. CHP is not liable for improper use or misuse of its products. No other warranty is either expressed or implied. CHP reserves the right to make design modifications and/ or adjust prices without notice.

Items made from knotty wood types may contain chips, holes, cracks, and other imperfections that may be caused from manufacturing and/or during the shipping & handling process. These are inherent to these wood types, and are not considered defects.  It is best to order knotty wood types in random lengths.  Due to the nature of these wood types we do not guarantee they will arrive in the requested lengths.

PROTECTION GUIDELINES

- DO NOT expose finish-grade wood products to rain/snow. Water spots will show up after finishing.

- DO NOT subject material to extremely high, low or fluctuating humidity. Relative humidity of 25-55% is ideal. Fresh concrete, plaster, paint, and drywall can all transmit moisture to unfinished wood products. The end result is swelling, joint separation or warping of wood products.

- DO NOT expose unfinished wood products to excessive heat, dryness or sudden temperature changes. These can all cause twisting, cupping, or warping.

-DO NOT expose wood to direct sunlight for extended periods of time. Certain species, in an unfinished state, are more susceptible to discoloration if exposed to sunlight.
