All Flooring America®/Flooring Canada® Resista® styles carry the Five Star Selection System carpet warranties with the terms being specific to the star rating of the product. In addition to the already enhanced Flooring America®/Flooring Canada® warranties, the manufacturer warrants that the Resista® carpet styles will remain stain-resistant to common household food and beverage substances, without exclusion, for 10 years from the date of the original installation in an owner-occupied residence in a proper indoor installation. The warranty is not transferable and is limited to the original purchaser. These warranties apply only to carpet installed in owner-occupied residential space in which the Resista® carpet was installed by a Flooring America®/Flooring Canada® retailer or Flooring America®/Flooring Canada® authorized independent installer.
For the first five years of the warranty, should your carpet not perform according to the Stain Warranty for the term of your warranty, the affected area will be replaced with the same carpet, or if no longer available, product of comparable cost.
Replacement carpet is pro-rated based on the number of years it has been installed.
The Usage Fee will be determined as a percentage of the original purchase price, as follows:
0-10 Year Pro-Rated Schedule
1st - 5th Year 100% Coverage 8th Year 30% Coverage
6th Year 50% Coverage 9th Year 20% Coverage
7th Year 40% Coverage 10+ Years 10% Coverage
This Limited Stain Warranty covers common household food and beverage stains. No carpet is completely stain-proof; therefore, this warranty excludes stains from: non-food and non-beverage substances and substances which destroy or change the color of carpets such as bleach, acne medication, caustic chemicals, insecticides, plants, plant food, iodine, very strong dyes, acids, feces, urine, and vomit.
