WARNING: Winter purchases of Cork Glue Down Tiles and Floors Requiring Polyurethane (Kitchen installations, etc)
A “Winterizing Package” surcharge of $10 per gallon will apply to when ordering Loba WS 2K or Wakol D3540 during cold months because the Wakol D3540 Cork Adhesive and the Loba Polyurethane are temperature sensitive and will become defective if exposed to temperatures below 5 Celsius (40F). Separate shipping may be required (and separate shipping costs apply) for the eastern Provinces. Transit times requiring more than 5 days could be subject to separate shipping for the Loba-Wakol products.
Flat Rate Shipping does NOT include “Protect From Freezing” charges. For our customers who wish to purchase either our Loba Supra Satin Polyurethane or our Wakol D3540 Cork Adhesive, we will require a small fee of $25 on top of regular or “Flat Rate Shipping” fees. Our liquid products are temperature sensitive. The shipping companies require an extra fee to ensure our products are protected from the cold.
Shipping water based products during winter months is less than ideal. We do our best to keep product from freezing during transport. Liquids CANNOT be drop-shipped during winter/cold months. It is the client’s responsibility to bring all liquids in side at the time of delivery and inspect the liquids at time of delivery (open the carton to ensure the product is still in liquid form). Should product arrive “frozen” (in a solid state – not liquid) or damaged, iCork Floor must be notified within 48 hours of delivery. Failure to inform iCork Floor inside of 48 hours of damaged/frozen product negates the client’s ability to file a claim for replacement product with iCork Floor, Cancork Floor or Forna.
