HERZOG VENEERS, INCORPORATED ("Herzog Veneers") makes the following limited warranties to its original purchaser and to no other purchaser or transferee.
Limited Fifteen (15) Day Warranty:
Herzog-Veneers warrants its products for a period of fifteen (15) days after delivery to the original purchaser (the "Warranty Period") to be free from defects in workmanship at the time of delivery to the original purchaser and to be the natural wood species set forth in the original purchaser's purchase order. During the Warranty Period, Herzog Veneers, at its option, will either replace defective product without charge or refund the purchase price paid for defective product. The original purchaser must inspect the products purchased upon delivery.
All shipments over fifteen (15) days cannot be returned for credit and is the property of the purchaser. A re-stocking charge of 25% will be charged for returned material not falling into warranty parameters and cannot be returned without written authorization.

IF HERZOG VENEERS PRODUCT DOES NOT CONFORM TO THESE LIMITED WARRANTIES, THE PURCHASER'S SOLE REMEDY IS REPLACEMENT OF DEFECTIVE PRODUCT OR REFUND OF THE PURCHASE PRICE PAID FOR DEFECTIVE PRODUCT, AT HERZOG VENEERS'S OPTION. THE FOREGOING LIMITED WARRANTIES AND REMEDIES ARE EXCLUSIVE AND ARE IN LIEU OF ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, EITHER IN FACT OR BY OPERATION BY LAW, STATUTORY OR OTHERWISE, INCLUDING WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, WHICH ARE EXCLUDED.
Limitation of Liability:
Wood veneer owes its inherent beauty to variations in grain, color, texture and pattern occurring as a result of nature, dye lot, exposure to light, and aging.
Aniline dyed veneers (and Natural veneers) vary in tonality due to the ages of the samples, the differences among logs and dye lots. Grain pattern including (Flake/Figure) will also vary.
The type and application of glues, adhesives, finishes and other chemicals to wood veneer, changes in humidity and temperature, improper handling, exposure to natural and artificial light, and other conditions may adversely affect wood veneer, cause warpage, checking, cracking, fading, darkening or discoloration and cause other unwanted conditions.
This is a natural wood product and should not be exposed to sunlight. Wood veneer may alter its color over time whether due to ultraviolet (UV) fading, natural light or simple aging of the wood.
Herzog Veneers warranties extend only to defects in workmanship and assurance that the product ordered conforms to the wood species specified in the original purchaser's purchase order. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Herzog Veneers limited warranties specifically do not extend to damage or conditions resulting from failure to inspect, misuse, neglect, installation, light, glues, adhesives, finishes, mishandling, accident, fire, lightning, water or other hazard.
All veneers — natural or dyed — are subject to color change. We recommend using ultraviolet light inhibitors in all finishes on all wood veneers to slow fading or color changes.
Use only non-yellowing lacquer finishes that contain UV inhibitors. It is the sole responsibility of the installer to test and determine if the substrate, topcoat (finish) are suitable for the application.
Herzog Veneers is not liable for finishes, substrates or adhesives used on any application or installation of the veneer

PURCHASER ASSUMES ANY AND ALL RISKS AND LIABILITY FOR LOSS, DAMAGE OR INJURY TO PERSONS OR PROPERTY, OF PURCHASER OR OTHERS, ARISING FROM THE USE OR POSSESSION OF HERZOG VENEERS PRODUCT.
Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages or allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, so the above limitations and exclusions may not apply to you.
