Customer is advised that, if the floor is stained it is advised to use ‘wood conditioner’ (“pre-stain”) before the staining for a more homogenous floor or do water-popping (raking, damp cloth the floor). Wood floors are a natural product and stain can be absorbed by the grain unevenly. especially woods such as Maple, Fir, Birch, Pine, among others. White spotting is possible due to tannin pull. Therefore a ‘wood conditioner’ is advised. If the “Authorization to Perform Work” states staining and sealing only this implies the Customer (home-owner) declined wood conditioning. The wood conditioning treatment must be named in writing.


The sealing (finish) of the floor is not warranted due to the wide variety of wood floors and the nature of wood floors and their environment, such as climate, pets and usage, among others. The same is true for discoloration due to Living, heat (wood stove), water, among others.

The floor is warranted against peeling for one year.

Layered engineered hard wood floor (pre-finished floor) is not solid wood flooring. If Yawn Flooring is hired it is on the understanding that this type floor cannot always be refinished.

 Also, Yawn Flooring is not responsible if, in the work process, the glued on hard wood layer separates from the surfaces below (layers separate), or for cracks, or breaks/chips, or is damaged in any other way, either by sanding or working on it.
