Oshkosh Designs Warranty
It is the responsibility of the installer and/or property owner to inspect the product prior to installation. If, before installation, you discover any product that has a perceived defect, please contact your Oshkosh Designs dealer immediately to arrange for repairs or replacement product.
Oshkosh Designs accepts no responsibility for costs of products or labor when products with perceived defects have been installed nonetheless.
Damage caused by natural or man-made disasters – including, but not limited to leaking or broken plumbing, standing water, fire, excessive rainfall, hurricanes, tornadoes, flooding or other disasters – are not covered by the terms of this warranty.
Failure to properly maintain your field floor, decorative inlays or parquet will void all warranties.
For maintenance recommendations, contact the National Wood Flooring Association (website: www.nwfa.org, Ph: 1-800-422-4556) or the National Oak Flooring Manufacturers’ Association (website: www.nofma.org, Ph: 1-901-526-5016).
No parquet flooring, decorative hardwood or stone floor inlays are manufactured to higher quality standards than the parquet and decorative inlay offered by Oshkosh Designs. That singular fact alone allows us to offer the following warranties:
- Oshkosh Designs warrants its decorative inlay and parquet to be free from manufacturing defects in lamination, milling, and assembly. We warrant these products, to the original purchaser, for a period of one year after the date of purchase.*
- Oshkosh Designs will (at our discretion) repair or replace any Oshkosh Designs decorative inlay or parquet that has experienced de-lamination between the product wear layer and substrate, if applicable, due to glue bond failure for one time only. If the Oshkosh Designs product is installed using a non-recommended adhesive, the warranty is voided.
Installation Over Concrete Slab
Oshkosh Designs products can be successfully installed over a slab that is on-grade or above grade. Below-grade installations are not recommended.
Prior to installation, the slab must be tested for dryness, have a vapor barrier installed, and be sound and flat.
Completion of the provided Oshkosh Designs pre-installation checklist is required for the warranty to be applicable. Failure to complete the checklist or meet the requirements outlined on the checklist will void warranty.
There are no implied warranties, including merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose, extending beyond the terms of this warranty, and except as set forth herein, there are no other warranties by Oshkosh Designs.
Except for the specific remedies set forth herein, Oshkosh Designs shall have no liability for any damages, incidental or consequential, resulting from the purchase, installation, or use of the Oshkosh Designs product. The terms of and remedies available under this limited warranty can only be modified or extended if expressly authorized, in writing, by Oshkosh Designs management.

Oshkosh Designs uses a wide variety of the finest materials.
Our products will vary in color, texture, and graining. The following natural characteristics are not to be construed as defects: mineral streaks, small knots, grain and color variations, sap pockets, flecking, fissures, texture, pitting or other natural material distinctions.
Additionally, actual product appearance may vary slightly from product images shown in brochures, online galleries or other printed materials or websites.
Natural changes in color due to aging of wood is expected and is not a defect. These variations in parquet and decorative inlay are natural occurrences due to species and age of wood or stone, plus exposure to UV lighting. Such variations contribute to the natural beauty and character of these materials.
We cannot warrant against natural variations, nor the differences between color, grain, and appearance of product samples, surrounding field floor, millwork, other wood products, and the color, grain and appearance of Oshkosh Designs products. Furthermore, this warranty does not cover color changes to any products that are the result of UV light and/or the natural aging process of the wood, glass, metal or stone.
Temperature and Humidity factors
Hardwood inlays are natural products and will expand and contract during heating and non-heating seasons, causing changes in joinery or the inlay products. These changes in joinery are not considered defects. To minimize these changes as much as possible, it is vital that reasonable humidity conditions, 35 to 45 percent humidity at 60 to 75°F (15.5 to 23.8°C), are maintained consistently at all times. Too much moisture (humid summer months) will expand the wood. Too little moisture (dry winter months) will contract the wood. It is also important to allow time for proper acclimation of the product to the property climate conditions prior to installation. No warranty coverage is provided for product that experiences glue bond failure, cupping, buckling, gapping or cracking due to inadequate, excessive or widely fluctuating humidity levels.
* Repair or replacement is limited to Oshkosh Designs product only.

- Quickly wipe up any spilled liquid from your inlay and protect wood from excessive water.
- Prevent sand, dirt, and water from getting on your inlay by placing mats or rugs (no jute or rubber back) in high traffic areas.
- Sweep or vacuum to remove dust and abrasive dirt. Vacuum wheels should be in good condition and free from abrasive particles.
- Do not pour cleaner or other liquid directly on the inlay.
- Do NOT use steam cleaners or steam mops.
- Do not use a wet mop that can leave excess water behind.
- Never use floor wax, oil-based detergent or any other household cleaner on the floor.
- Protect your inlay from excessive natural or artificial light, which can cause wood to change color.
