3. Payment Terms

Any account unpaid by the shipment date is subject to a service charge of 1- 1/2 percent per month on the unpaid balance, and shipment will be delayed until full payment is received. Any account not paid within sixty (60) days of the initial shipment date will result in a cancellation of Buyer’s order and forfeiture of Buyer’s Deposit.


4. Shipping

All shipping dates are approximate only and are subject to confirmation by Historic Flooring at time of acceptance of order. Shipping is also subject to unavoidable delays caused by material shortages, strikes, accidents or other causes beyond Historic Flooring’s control. Customer is responsible for carefully inspecting their shipment upon arrival, and documenting any visible damages on the bill of lading before signing for it. Historic Flooring will not be held responsible for damage to any product after it leaves our warehouse.


5. Returns

Except as hereinafter provided, for a period of 30 days after shipping date, Buyer may return any unused Basic Products. If those Basic Products are returned no later than 7 days after the Products were delivered to Buyer, Historic Flooring will replace the same with other Products or refund 50% of the purchase price of such Basic Products (the remaining 50% representing a non-refundable deposit), whichever Buyer shall elect. After such 7-day period, Historic Flooring will only replace the Basic Products returned. If the price of replacement Products exceeds the price of the Basic Products returned, such excess price must be paid prior to reshipment date. The cost of return and reshipment shall be paid by the Buyer. No Basic Products may be returned after 30 days from the shipping date. No return may be made of any Basic Product that has been installed, cut or altered by Buyer in any way. Custom Products cannot be returned.


6. Warranties

(a) All Products are sold “AS IS” and Historic Flooring’s sale warranties are solely that it is the owner of the Products sold Buyer and that the Products are delivered free from any security interest or other lien or encumbrance whatsoever. Products sold with old paint or stain may have lead-based paint hazards.






7. Limitation of Liability

It is understood and agreed that any liability of Historic Flooring, whether in contract, in tort, under any warranty, in negligence or otherwise, shall not exceed the return of the amount of the purchase paid by Buyer and under no circumstances shall Historic Flooring be liable for special, direct, indirect or consequential damages. Buyer acknowledges and agrees that the price quoted for Historic Flooring’s Products is consideration in the limitation of Historic Flooring’s liability. No action arising from the purchase of Historic Flooring’s Products may be brought by Buyer more than one year after the shipment date of such Products.


Since many of the buildings that the lumber comes from were built prior to 1978, it is likely that at one time the boards could have had lead based paint on them. It is the customer’s responsibility to educate themselves about lead based paint hazards. For more information on this go to http://www.epa.gov/lead/
