Wood is an organic material. Therefore, you should expect variations in texture, color and wood grain.
Over time, exposure to sunlight, smoke and chemicals may cause some materials to fade or vary from their original color. This change in character occurs naturally and is not a defect. It may mean that cabinets added at a later date may not match the color of cabinets installed today. For the same reasons, door samples or displays may not represent the exact color of cabinets at the time of delivery to your home. American Woodmark’s warranty does not cover these and other environmentally triggered occurrences, including humidity, which may result in warping or splitting.
While our wood finishing and laminates process promotes durability, care should be taken to preserve this finish by cleaning only with mild soaps. You should read all cleaning products’ instructions carefully before application.
