Abode floors are made from real wood, not a manufactured imitation. Because wood is a natural material, every piece of Abode flooring will have a unique appearance, often with naturally-occurring variations in color, texture and grain pattern. Photographic reproductions, such as the images on this Site, and samples of product, such as those viewed in-store or ordered through the Site, can give an example of the product's appearance but they may not be representative of the full range of color, texture and grain variations which can occur in the product itself.
This Site displays products available for purchase in Canada, however not all products are available at all times and products may be changed, substituted or discontinued at any time. Abode attempts to provide an accurate description of the products available for sale, but does not warrant the accuracy, completeness, reliability or currency of such descriptions. Certain products may be the subject of third-party warranties offered by its manufacturers or providers. Additional terms and conditions applicable to your online purchases are provided to you on the Site as you order products, prior to completing your purchase.
In the event of an advertising or pricing error, we will make every reasonable effort to accommodate our customers, while reserving the right to make price corrections. If a price correction must be made, we will give you the opportunity to accept the corrected price, or to cancel the purchase.
Subject to applicable law, we reserve the right to change the products and services advertised or offered for sale through the Site, the prices or specifications of such products and services, and any promotional offers at any time and from time to time without any notice or liability to you or any other person.
