GENERAL NOTES

All colour and finished selections are to be made from the Builder’s standard samples, upgrades may be chosen and the buyer acknowledges there will be additional charges. The Buyer acknowledges and accepts that variations in colour and shade may occur; especially in natural wood products and the availability of colours and patterns may vary from those displayed at the time of the colour selection. All selections and upgrades must be completed and signed prior to construction (including the lighting selections). Selections that have not been completed by a specified date will be completed by the Builder on the Buyer’s behalf. The Builder may require full or partial payments of any upgrades prior to construction.

When selecting Berber carpeting please be aware that Berber will tend to fray and separate much easier than normal plush carpeting and it is not recommended for clients with animals. The vacuum beater bar will cause damage to the Berber and this damage is not covered under warranty. Earth Park Homes will warranty Berber carpeting only in a case of defect in workmanship or materials outlined by the manufacturer.

When selecting hardwood flooring, it is the buyer’s responsibility to maintain humidity levels between 30%-50%. Levels above or below the recommended levels may cause severe damage due to expansion and contraction and may void any warranty. Hardwood flooring is a natural product. Cracking and splitting of boards can and does occur. Chipping to the edges of individual boards is also a common occurrence. By choosing to install hardwood floor, the buyer acknowledges and accepts that Earth Park Homes does not warranty the above mentioned items.

Buyer acknowledges that variations in colour/shade/uniformity may occur.

Shingles when installed in cold temperatures may not have sufficient time to seal. Strong winds may blow some off and these areas will be replaced at no charge to the buyer.
