Product Color Disclaimer

Please be sure to order samples before placing your order. Monitor colors vary dramatically by brand and lighting environment you’re in. For this reason, we cannot honor our satisfaction guarantee on colors for those who did not previously order color samples. Due to the variances in the color due to production runs, dye, etc. each lot color will vary for any of the products on this site. These variances are minimal, but there is no way to assure the exact color of the floor tiles or other products on this site when ordering at different times. To ensure maximum color consistency, plan your order in advance and place your entire order at the same time. Sample colors may also vary slightly as our samples may come from different production lots.
