Failure to report to Krosswood Doors any visible defect or mistake in shipment more than 24 hours after receipt, or after the product is machined or installed.
Procedures you must follow to exercise this limited warranty The integrity of a Krosswood door is predicated upon the adherence to the following procedures. Failure to observe these procedures may result in or precipitate an adverse reaction of the product, shall void any warranty or claim.
All doors are packaged for forklift loading and unloading. They are palletized and banded together. Upon receipt, any shipping damage must be noted on the bill of lading and reported immediately to the delivering carrier and Krosswood.
Doors must be stored flat on a level surface in a dry, well ventilated building at least 4” above the ground and covered to avoid direct sunlight, as well as moisture, dirt and dust. Doors must be conditioned to average prevailing relative humidity and temperature of the locality before hanging. Do not walk on doors or drag doors across one another, particularly if they include raised molding.
Doors must not be subject to extreme or rapid changes in heat or humidity, including, without limitation, sudden changes resulting from forced heat used to dry out a building. If doors are stored at a job site, all six sides must be sealed with an effective quality oil-based or mineral-based sealer in order to prevent unacceptable moisture absorption.
Installation When hanging doors, allow adequate clearance between the door and frame for normal swelling of the door or frame in damp weather. Clearances between the door edges and door frame must be a minimum of 1/16" on the hinge side and 1/8" clearance on the latch side and top rail.
When cutting, use a sharp fine-tooth saw. Caution must be used to avoid impairing the strength of the door when fitting for locks or other hardware. Allow at least 1” of wood back of the mortise. Pilot holes must be drilled for all screws that act as hardware attachments. Use a minimum of three hinges on doors up to 7’ tall and four hinges on doors over 7’ tall. Hinges must be set in a straight line to prevent distortion of the door. Jambs and stops must be set square and plumb. Immediately after cutting and fitting (and before final hanging) seal all surfaces and ends of the door with an effective quality sealer.
Do not install doors before ‘mudding’ and taping of sheet rock has been dried and completed.
Finishing For best performance, doors must be finished lying flat. Sand entire door with appropriate grit of sandpaper in the same direction as the grain. Finish must be applied immediately after fitting and hanging, but not during or after high moisture times. Remove dust before finishing. Follow manufacturer’s directions closely for all finish products.
Krosswood Doors will not, under any circumstances, be liable for installation, refinishing or painting costs.
