Several situations of items when they are exempted from being returned:

  • In reclaimed and rustic wood furniture, there will be cracks on the joint of the wood, natural aging holes, and/or some visible warping on the wood.  These cannot be considered as the reason or return, as the item is not damaged but these are its properties which in several ways enhances its appeal.  
  • The kiln-drying process is used to minimize any cracking and warping.  However, exposure to harsh weather or extreme climate changes can still affect the wood over time and cannot be considered a reason for return.
  • Natural aging of metals, rust, or tarnighing due to scratches or abrasions.
  • Damages can happen due to improper maintenance, use, cleaning, installation, or used in a way other than intended.
  • any product modifications by customer.
