YD is not responsible for any issues resulting from moisture such as but not limited to: cupping, warping, shrinkage, twisting or buckling; any issues resulting from subfloor inadequacies or failure to follow maintenance procedures. Warranty does not cover installation of obvious defective boards, installation denotes acceptance. It is the installer's responsibility to examine the products prior to installation and cull out unacceptable boards.
Seasonal expansion and contraction with minor gapping in the heating season is a normal function of wood.

Such separation is not considered a product defect, hence not covered by this warranty.
