How do warranties work?
When purchasing a product, it often comes with a warranty, a promise a manufacturer or supplier makes regarding the condition of its product. It is a type of guarantee that also outlines which repairs or exchanges will be made under certain terms and situations.
When looking for indoor flooring, most will come with a warranty. It’s important to look at the length of the flooring warranty and the situations it covers as these can often indicate the quality of the indoor flooring. When comparing warranties, it’s recommended to compare like to like. For example, don’t compare a vinyl floor tile that is 4mm thick to one that is 2.5mm thick as these will often come with different warranties.
Most vinyl flooring warranties will only cover the product itself and indicate the flooring needs to be installed according to instructions. LVT and other flooring products usually do not come with a flooring installation warranty.
A lifetime warranty on Sisu LVT flooring
With coverage for up to 35 years when installed in a residential property, Sisu LVT comes with what’s known as a lifetime flooring warranty. Both the dryback and click luxury vinyl tiles fall under the same warranty making it one of the best on the market and guarantees the durability of Sisu LVT.
When looking at warranty years, the warranty usually starts when the product is delivered to its buyer and expires after the number of years indicated after the product is delivered. For example, if your Sisu LVT flooring is delivered on the 3rd of February 2021, your flooring warranty will become void on the 2nd of February of 2056. As with most flooring warranties, the warranty that automatically comes with Sisu LVT cannot be extended after the 35 years.

Our commercial warranty for Sisu LVT also matches that of Amtico and Karndean’s warranties and that of other industry leaders. It covers the luxury vinyl flooring for up to 10 years in which you could qualify for a replacement of your Sisu LVT flooring or a refund of your purchase if you discover a defect.
Why is a flooring warranty important?
Warranties are definitely worth looking at. A flooring may look great when it’s initially laid, but it is one of the most used features in your house as it’s being walked on every day. It is thus important to not only look at the duration of a warranty but also the warranty’s policy.
Like most of our competitors, our Sisu LVT warranty covers material defects in workmanship and materials, meaning that if the manufacturer has made a mistake when producing the tiles, you may make a warranty claim and be eligable for a replacement or refund. Therefore, it’s important to check your products carefully when you initially receive your order for any faults.
On top of this, our residential warranty also covers scrapes and scuffs on the flooring’s layer that has the wood grain or stone colour and pattern.
Sisu’s vinyl flooring warranty surpasses that of competitors when looking at staining. Sisu LVT should be resistant to permanent staining from regular household substances, such as dirt, grease and oil under the conditions that it is cleaned using soap and water or a mild cleaner within a week of spillage. In the unlikely event that a stain remains on your Sisu LVT flooring, you can request a replacement or refund. This extensive coverage is often not included in the warranty of other LVT suppliers.
Can the warranty be transferred?
We realise that people renovate their homes and this may be prior to selling to increase its value. That’s why we allow our residential Sisu LVT warranty to be transferred one time within five years after the flooring was bought. Warranty claims should therefore be easier to deal with for you and the next owner of your property.
Our long-lasting and extensive warranty for Sisu LVT backs up our trust in the durability of our flooring ensuring you get to enjoy your indoor space to the fullest.
