TEMPLE FURNITURE WARRANTY

WARRANTY INFORMATION: TEMPLE FURNITURE

Temple Furniture products are covered by a "Limited Lifetime Warranty," which extends to the original purchaser only, in residential settings not used for income (rentals). The term “Limited Lifetime” (called simply “lifetime” below) is valid as long as the originally applied cover is intact and not worn through, and no work (re-covering, repair or modification) has been performed on the furniture without the factory’s knowledge. While we can generally confirm original order information through our records, it helps greatly to have original purchase paperwork handy when making any warranty claim. Repairs may not be possible under warranty if we cannot locate the original purchase information.

For warranty repairs outside our local delivery area, see the bottom of this page.

“Lifetime Warranty" details:

Frames are guaranteed against warp, breakdown or looseness for the lifetime of the frame as upholstered in its original cover (fabric or leather).

Spring construction and all support of backs and seats, exclusive of cushions, is guaranteed against breaking or significant slippage for lifetime under normal stress.

Seat cushions are lifetime warranted for a single replacement of the seat cushion cores. Frequent turning and fluffing, especially in the first few month of use, is expected to be done by the consumer and will extend the life of all cushions and fabrics.

In the rare incidence that seat cushion(s) need replacement, customers must supply original sales order paperwork. This warranty is valid only if the furniture has received normal usage and has not been subjected to abuse.

Cushion warranty is for the loss of cushion resiliency and not normal flattening or softening of cushions. Softening and flattening of cushions occur with foam and fibers as a result of regular use and aging and should not be considered manufacturing defects. The customer is responsible for freight charges to ship replacement cushions, delivery and any labor costs associated with removing and replacing seat cushion cores. Customer may be required to pay a disposal fee for the replaced cores if we take them away.

Fabrics are covered by a full ONE YEAR fabric warranty covering wear under normal use and with proper care. This warranty does not cover fading or pilling, which sometimes occurs with normal use of some fabrics and is not valid where there is evidence of heavy soiling. We reserve the right to replace the portion of fabric that is defective. All fabric claims, within warranty, will be submitted to the fabric mill for evaluation. We will warranty only if the mill states that there is an actual fabric defect. Fabric manufacturers will not honor warranties if evidence that a pet is exposed to the furniture, therefore voiding our fabric warranty. The fabric warranty is null and void if improperly cleaned. Any and all fabric defects must be identified and reported to us within 5 business days of furniture receipt. We apologize, but there can be no exceptions to this reporting window, as we have no recourse with suppliers past this five business day window.

Care of the fabric is important. Cleaning by a professional furniture cleaning service only is recommended for all our fabrics. Proper care between cleanings includes frequent vacuuming or light brushing to remove dust and grime. It is imperative that the seat cushions used regularly be turned at least twice monthly to get maximum wear from both the fabric and the cushioning.

Pets are abrasive to fabric and should not be allowed on your furniture. Please note that treatment of the fabric with stain protectors, or any aftermarket treatment voids this fabric warranty.

All warranty actions must be pursued through our store, serving as your authorized dealer. When a problem occurs, we reserve the right to determine if repairs should be made locally, or if the piece must be returned to the factory for correction. We reserve the right to have our repair technician or customer service representative make a preliminary inspection at our store or at the customer's home to determine extent and nature of the issue before a return is authorized. We will absorb the cost of returning the furniture to the factory from our store. Customers are responsible for the cost of transportation from the customer’s home to the store for return to the factory for repairs. Customers are responsible for picking up the repaired furniture (or for the cost of re-delivery of repaired furniture) within 5 business days of its return to our store from the factory.

We are not liable for freight charges to ship replacement parts, in the event that repairs are done at the customer’s home or at our store.

Our warranty is valid only if the furniture has received normal residential usage and has not been subject to abuse.

Outside local delivery area:

As a 'micro' business with 3-5 employees in Southern Maine, warranties are limited by what we can do for consumers located far from our store. If furniture purchased from us is taken or delivered outside our local service area (defined as within 1-hour driving time of our physical store in Scarborough, Maine), all warranty coverage is limited to what assistance we can reasonably provide.

At the time you receive furniture with a white glove home delivery service, you are obligated to provide a competent and authorized person to receive the furniture whom you trust and empower to inspect, understand, the responsibilities of inspecting and accepting and signing off on the condition of the furniture order. We expect you understand that this person is fully authorized by you to inspect for defects and damage. If none is noted while delivery persons are present, and nothing is written on the delivery documents indicating condition other than new and in good condition, we have no recourse with the delivery company and your statement that all was received as ordered is the final word on whether the furniture arrived in good condition, or whether factory work was not up to par, or damage may have occurred in transit from the factory to your home.

We absolutely want to help you get the most out of your furniture, but in all cases, your help is required to locate local professionals, obtain estimates, decide which is best, and cover all expenses not covered under warranty, including packing and shipping furniture to be repaired at the manufacturer, if that should be necessary. Because we often can’t determine the full extent of repairs required without being on site, and because you may not be sufficiently qualified or willing to diagnose what is needed without a furniture technician’s help, we will do all we can to assist, but cannot be solely responsible for finding the right resources and managing the proper course of action. Our role would be supportive, but your schedule and execution of research and follow through would be the primary, necessary effort vital to an acceptable outcome.
