9. Matching New Floors to Old Floors: Flooring Solutions is not responsible to match new or re-fished flooring to and existing flooring.  Due to newer products and color changes to applied coatings or stains, it is almost impossible to match 100% new flooring finish to an existing floor.  Flooring solutions will at the clients request try to match the new flooring finish to the existing flooring finish to the best of their ability.

 13. Odorless and non-toxic finish. Water based finishes are environmentally friendly and will not cause harm to occupants of home.  Clint may choose to stay in premises if desired during the finish application. The VOC levels (VOC are atmospheric pollutants that deteriorate air quality) in the applied finished are low and will not harm the occupant of the property or the environment. 

14. Moist effects on wood floors. Wood flooring will always expand (swell) and contract (shrink) due to the various moisture, and temperature conditions that are present in any job site. Wood will shrink (cracks will develop) during heating seasons (loss of moisture), and expand (flooring will grow in width) during humid summer conditions. The amount of shrinkage and expansion will also depend on the width of boards being installed. (The wider the board the larger the cracks in the floor. Wider boards will have a slight cupping appearance). The occasional use of a dehumidifier can assist in minimizing the swelling of the flooring during the humid season.

15. Who should will buy the materials? The flooring or any other materials that are going to be use in a construction Homeowner should make sure to get all warranty paper from factory because things can and contractor wont be responsible for the above mentioned.
