Disclaimer for Painted Wood Cabinetry
Please be aware that wood expands and contracts. When this natural process occurs on painted cabinetry-such as the Coastal Cream- it will create open joint in the painted finish. An open joint line is not considered a defect and it is widely accepted in the cabinet industry. The finish will still protect the surface and the structural integrity of the joint will not be affected. These issues are shared by every manufacturer of painted all-wood cabinets. They are not unique to Innovation Cabinetry. Wood may expand and contract differently from cabinet to cabinet to cabinet. Even joints within the same cabinet may behave differently. Some joined wood may not show any joint lines, others may be slightly visible, and others may display visible joint lines. Joint lines also may occur due to the repeated impacts from normal, everyday use. An exposed open wood joint can be damaged from prolonged exposure to water or heavy moisture. Wipe off any excess moisture from cabinet surfaces as soon as possible. Discolorations: All paints, especially lighter colors, are susceptible to discoloration due to airborne particles such as cooking, grilling, tobacco smoke, fireplaces or candles. Prolonged exposure to natural or artificial light may alter the finish color. Moisture may also discolor the finish.
Disclaimer for Stained Wood Cabinetry
All wood is a product of nature. While each wood type grows best in specific conditions, nature provides differences which are critical to the growing soil and weather conditions will have their effect on grain patterns and colors. The beauty of real wood is created by the infinite variation of grain, texture and color. This is especially true of hardwood and hardwood veneers. It is the nature of hardwoods to have mineral streaks and great variation in graining. Colors range from light brown, dark-brown, and even black areas in the wood. Since the number of mineral streaks varies from board to board, you may notice difference between cabinets, doors, drawers or even on the same panel. Mineral streaks or unusual graining are considered to be characteristic of natural wood and will not be considered to be a defect or reason for replacement. No special emphasis is made to select materials to match each color. All color characteristics of wood will change as it ages. This will gradually change the color of the wood and the stain. The amount and rate of change will depend on many factors including wood-type, stain color and the amount of direct sunlight. In addition, exposure to smoke, chemicals and man-made light may cause some materials to vary from their original color over time. The color softening change will be noticeable over an extended period of time. This is why cabinets or accessories added at a later date may not match exactly to the previous installed cabinetry. For this reason door samples and displays may not be the same exact color of the cabinets you receive. Innovation Cabinetry cannot be responsible for the naturally occurring changes in your wood cabinets.
