Tile warranties offer the following types of coverage:
A tile wear warranty provides coverage in the event that the wear layer is lost and causes change or damage of the printed pattern or design.
A fade warranty for tile flooring provides coverage for fading that can occur from normal exposure to sunlight or artificial light. This feature of tile warranties is particularly necessary when the tiles is placed in an area near windows or is exposed to sunlight.
A stain warranty provides coverage for permanent stains caused by normal household use. It’s important to read the fine print. Each flooring retailer may have a different definition of normal household use.
An installation warranty can be just as important as the product warranty. This warranty covers any issues with the original installation.
