Product is available unfinished, pre-finished, or primed. Pre-hanging is available. Warranty Period: 2 years.
All visible defects or mistakes in shipment must be reported to The-Wood Studio before the product is installed or trimmed, otherwise product shall be deemed correct and/or acceptable.
Should The-Wood Studio stile and rail door fail to conform to this written warranty, The-Wood Studio will, at its option repair or replace the door. EXCEPT AS OTHERWISE EXPRESSLY PROVIDED HEREIN, THE-WOOD STUDIO SHALL NOT PAY FOR THE COST OF LABOR, INSTALLATION, FINISHING OR SHIPMENT OF THE REPLACEMENT OF ORIGINAL DOOR OR FOR ANY OTHER COST RELATING TO THE REPLACEMENT OF THE DOOR, ALL OF WHICH SHALL BE THE SOLE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE PERSON MAKING THE WARRANTY CLAIM.
THE FOLLOWING SHALL NOT BE CONSIDERED DEFECTS IN MATERIAL OR WORKMANSHIP AND ARE NOT COVERED BY THIS LIMITED WARRANTY:
Warp for any door wider than 42" or taller than 96";
Warp for any nominal 1-3/4" thick by 42" wide by 96" high or smaller door, not exceeding 1/4" in the plane of the door itself;
Bow or nonalignment in the frame or jamb in which the door is hung if such is purchased from The-Wood Studio un-machined and not prehung;
Variations or unsatisfactory results in gloss level, texture or appearance resulting from the field application of paint or any other finishing material;
Natural variations in the color or texture of the wood;
Damage caused by others or by any cause beyond the control of The-Wood Studio, including but not limited to damage caused by misuse, abuse, accident, mishandling and by extreme weather conditions, severe temperatures variations, direct sun light, snow or rain, great humidity changes, fire, flood, earthquake, storm, tornado or other acts of nature;
1-1/8" thick doors which are wider than 3'-0" or higher than 7'-0"
1-3/8" thick doors which are wider than 3'-0" or higher than 7'-0"
1-3/4" thick doors which are wider than 3'-6" or higher than 8'-0"
2-1/4" and thicker doors which are wider than 3'-6" or higher than 10'-0"
Doors that are improperly hung or do not swing freely

Exterior doors installed in locations that allow them to receive, either direct or indirect moisture wetting
Doors with mitered rim panels used in exterior applications
"Misuse" of a door includes, but is not limited to, using a door on part of a building without providing adequate overhang or an appropriate finish color. Adequate overhang depends on the typical weather conditions of the area where the door is to be used, but typically means an overhang projecting a distance from the structure one half the elevation difference between the bottom of the door and the base of the overhang structure at the point which is farthest from the door. In order to reduce the chance of warping or checking, dark colored finishes should be avoided on all surfaces, especially on light colored wood species, or if the door is exposed to direct sunlight;
The discoloration or rusting of decorative metal accent options, (Grilles, Clavos, Straps, etc.)
Knot placement, quantity, or size found on knotty alder;
Raised (hair like) grain found on wire brushed surface.
Damage due to trimming more than 1/2" from the top or 1-1/2" from the bottom;
Damage caused by failure to comply with the Care, Handling or Finishing; to include but not limited to damage caused by failing to seal all six (6) sides of the door.
Failure to perform normal homeowner's maintenance, including maintaining the finish (factory finish or non-factory finish);
Product failure due to improper or incorrect installation;
Attempts to repair The-Wood Studio products other than by The-Wood Studio;
Hardwood surface checks that are less than 1/32" in width and/or 2" in length; Knotty Alder surface checks that are less than 1/8" in width and/or 5" in length;
Panel movement (shrinkage) of 1/4" or less. Temperature and humidity may cause the wood panels in your door to shrink, leaving an unstained line along the panel edge. The panels in your door have been designed to "float."
Damage caused by extreme temperature buildup where a storm door is utilized. Storm doors must be vented to eliminate this temperature buildup;
Slight expansion or contraction due to varying environmental conditions, such as temperature and humidity;
If the claimed non-conformity is warp, The-Wood Studio may defer repairing or replacing the product for a period of up to twelve (12) months from the date of claim or the date when the product was installed, as it is not uncommon for a temporary warp condition to occur as the door adjust to local humidity and temperature conditions.
Doors made in other wood than genuine Burmese Teak grade A
