25 YEAR LIMITED RESIDENTIAL WARRANTY FOR SPC FLOORING
This warranty is non-transferable and applies only to the original purchaser with proof of
purchase with date on it. Our SPC products are warranted free from manufacturing
defects and not to wear through under normal indoor residential use for years. Wear
through is defined as loss of the floor design due to normal household use. We
recommend using floor protectors. As a general rule of thumb, the heavier the item, the
wider the floor protectors should be.
10 YEAR LIMITED LIGHT COMMERCIAL WARRANTY FOR SPC FLOORING
What is covered and length of coverage?
For light commercial installations (example: common areas in multi-unit dwellings and
low traffic retail shops) the product is warranted to be free from manufacturing defects
for 10 years from the date of purchase. If a defect covered by this warranty is reported
to Décor Flooring LLC in writing within 10 years of purchase, Décor Flooring LLC will
supply new material of the same or similar grade sufficient to repair or replace the
What Is Not Covered By These Warranties?
What Is Excluded From These Warranties?
None of our installers, retailers, distributors or employees has authority to alter the
obligations, limitations, disclaimers or exclusions under any of our warranties.
We exclude and will not be liable for or pay incidental, consequential or special
damages under our warranties. By this we mean any loss, expense, or damage other
than to the flooring itself that may result from a defect in the flooring. Our limited
warranties constitute the only express warranties for the product purchased.
To the extent permitted by law and for all non-consumer products, all warranties other
than our limited warranties, express or implied, including any warranty of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose, are disclaimed. If any implied
warranty arises under state law, any and all implied warranties (including any warranty
of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose) are limited in duration to the
duration of this written warranty, to the extent allowed by law.
Some jurisdictions do not allow exclusion or limitations of incidental or consequential
damages or limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, so the above limitations
or exclusions may not apply to you.
These warranties give you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights
which vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction.
WARRANTY OWNER This warranty applies only to Professionally Installed or Do-It-Yourself (DIY) installations by a homeowner for his or her own residential end use. This warranty extends only to the original end user and is not transferable.
PLEASE KEEP YOUR RECEIPT OR OBTAIN IT FROM THE ORIGINAL PURCHASER. Décor Flooring LLC needs the flooring receipt in order to verify date and proof of purchase to resolve any problems that may occur. For professionally installed floors, the original receipt for installation labor may also be required.
Your new SPC is the newest generation of high-quality resilient flooring. It has a unique
interlocking-edge design for easy installation. Simply follow the steps and you will
experience how easily this product is installed in just a few hours. The wear layer has
millions of ceramic microspheres that make a very durable and resistant flooring option.
TOOLS AND MATERIALS NEEDED
• Utility knife & straight edge
• Measuring tape
• Shears for cutting around irregular shaped objects
• 1/8’’ spacers
• Transition moldings and baseboards
TRICKS FOR MEASURING
Measure the length and width to determine the square footage of the room. Alcoves or
offsets should be measured separately. Purchase at least 10% extra to cover waste,
trimming and for future replacement needs.
NOTE: If you have more than one run number, we recommend you install planks from 4
or 5 different cases from different run numbers together. This will limit shade variations.
Replacement of material only. No labor.
CAUTION: Do not install this SPC over carpet or regular underlayment. SPC can be
installed over an approved underlayment such as Ultra Fold. This product is not suitable
for outdoor use, sunrooms, solariums or saunas. SPC will warp if subject to excessive
heat and will shrink if exposed to excessive cold. We also highly recommend you do not
install in rooms or homes in which the temperature is not controlled. Exposure to long
term direct sunlight can cause expansion damage to your floor. We strive to maintain
strict quality control during the manufacturing process but we recommend checking all
planks to ensure uniform appearance.
Place SPC horizontally in the room where it will be installed. The room should remain
between 18 and 22 degrees Celsius 48 hours before installation, and during the
installation period. Do not remove the planks from the box during this acclimatization
SUBFLOOR PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION
The sub-floor surface must be smooth, dry, clean and solid. Any adhesive residue must
be removed to ensure proper installation. The subfloor should be flat within a tolerance
of 1/8″ (3mm) over a span of 4 feet. Any unevenness over 1/8″ (3mm) must be
sanded or filled with a floor leveler. Voids or humps in the sub-floor will prevent SPC
from locking properly. Take the readings in at least 20 spots per 1,000 square feet
of flooring and average the results. SPC is waterproof but any moisture problem
greater than 9% needs to be corrected prior to installation.
New concrete floors need to cure for a minimum of 60 days. When installing on cement
on the first floor, a minimum 6 mil polyethylene moisture barrier must be used with
