3 YEAR LIMITED WARRANTY
The following is the Three Year Limited Warranty issued by Kinsley Carpet Mills for Indoor/Outdoor carpet. This warranty begins when the carpeting is purchased. The carpet must be installed in accordance with installation guidelines and specifications. The carpet must be maintained in accordance with maintenance (and care) recommendations and such maintenance (carpet care) continues throughout the duration of the original installation. The Three-Year Warranty is further limited to the period of time the carpet is owned and maintained by the original end-use purchaser. The basis of any warranty related claim is the original Kinsley invoice. Damage resulting from the failure to follow these instructions will not be covered under this warranty.
WHAT THE WARRANTY COVERS
• Fiber Degradation – Kinsley warrants that this Indoor/Outdoor carpet, when installed and maintained as recommended by Kinsley Carpet Mills for proper indoor/outdoor use, will not display ultraviolet (UV) degradation, resulting in fiber deterioration or loss.
(Failure shall mean that the weight of the yarn shall have decreased a minimum of 25 % for tufted products or 40% for needlebond products. This will be from the weight of the original weight at the time the products were manufactured as a result of ultraviolet degradation, as tested per ASTM D 5848).
Actual degradation will cause a deterioration of the yarn and loss of pile as a result. Failure does not include a decrease in pile height of the face yarn from the original pile height as a result of surface compression due to normal wear.
• Backing – Tuft Bind – Kinsley warrants that our Indoor/Outdoor carpet, when installed and maintained as recommended by Kinsley Carpet Mills, under normal use, will provide tuft bind performance expectations consistent with this type backing.
• Backing – Integrity/Delamination – Kinsley warrants that our Indoor/Outdoor carpet, when installed and maintained as recommended by Kinsley Carpet Mills, under normal use, will not delaminate from the face carpet. Note: The construction, fiber and backing system used in this product is designed and engineered for general indoor/outdoor conditions and use unless otherwise specified.
