This warranty is the sole warranty provided by Bedrosians® to its direct Purchasers and replaces any statutory warranties to the maximum extent allowable by law. It is the direct Purchaser’s responsibility to inspect all product prior to installation. Visual defects or nonconformities reasonably apparent, that direct Purchaser knows of or should know of, prior to installation void this warranty as installation is deemed acceptance of product.
This warranty covers only the following:
- Immediate and direct Purchaser from Bedrosians®, as evidenced by an invoice.
- Immediate and direct purchases of FIRST QUALITY products paid for in full, as evidenced by an invoice.
- Performance of the product only and not installation of product.

Tile is subject to variation in technical specifications, including COF,due to inherent variability in the raw materials and production process. Express technical specifications are not guarantees of minimum or maximum thresholds of performance. Unless specifically stated otherwise, tile recommended for floor or wall applications refers to interior applications only. Bedrosians® does not recommend its products for use on ceilings or roofs. Local building codes may dictate minimum tile performance specifications. Bedrosians® does not warrant product installations that violate building codes. Photographic color images may not be an exact product match. Buyer is to verify color, shade, caliber and texture with current and available stock on hand prior to purchase or installation. Installation constitutes acceptance.
Polished porcelain tile and glazed polished porcelain tile must be sealed prior to grouting and the grout color must match the predominant color of the tile.
Natural stone products are quarried from natural formations, rather than made at a factory. No two pieces are alike and there are inherent variances in all stone. Because these products are not subject to a manufacturing process, quality warranties are limited to the specified representations in product literature and guidelines established by the Marble Institute of America. Bedrosians® does not warrant natural stone products for shade, size, thickness, warping, cleft variations, veining, surface finish variations, or other natural variations.
Implied Warranties Limited in Duration
Any implied warranty applicable to the product sale, including the implied warranty of merchantability or the implied warranty of fitness for a particular purpose is limited in duration to the duration of this written warranty or the maximum statutory period, whichever is less. Some states do not allow limitations on implied warranty duration, so the above limitation may not apply to you. The Federal Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act limits disclaimers of implied warranties involving consumer products.To the maximum extent allowable by federal and state law, this warranty supplements or supersedes federal and state consumer goods warranty protections.
Implied Warranty of Fitness for a Particular Purpose
Bedrosians® may provide information in its product literature with regard to appropriate tile and stone applications. In these specified applications, Bedrosians® limits the duration of the implied warranty of fitness for a particular purpose to one-year or the maximum statutory period prescribed by law which ever is less. Failure to comply with recommended applications voids this warranty.
