Homeowner Use and Maintenance Guidelines Your selection sheets are your record for the color of cabinets in your home. If you selected wood or wood veneer cabinets, expect differences in grain and color between and within the cabinet components due to natural variations in wood and the way it takes stain. Stain and color variations in cabinets are to be expected and are not covered under Century Communities Limited Warranty. Cabinets that do need to be replaced under warranty will be a shade different than the cabinets that have been installed in your home because they have had time to season. Hinges If hinges catch or drawer glides become sluggish, clean the hinge and apply a small amount of silicone lubricant to improve performance. Moisture Damage to cabinet surfaces and warping can result from operating appliances that generate large amounts of moisture (such as a crock pot) too near the cabinet. When operating such appliances, place them in a location that is not directly under a cabinet.

Century Communities Limited Warranty Guidelines During the orientation, we will confirm that all cabinet parts are installed and that their surfaces are in acceptable condition.

Alignment Doors, drawer fronts, and handles should be level and even. Operation Cabinets should operate properly under normal use.

Separations We will correct gaps between cabinets and the ceiling or cabinets and the walls by caulking or other means if the gap is excessive according to industry tolerances. Warping If doors or drawer fronts warp in excess of the tolerances, we will correct this by adjustment or replacement. Wood Grain Readily noticeable variations in wood grain and color are normal in all wood or wood veneer selections. Replacements are not made due to such variations. Weight Capacity Your cabinets can accommodate a limited amount of weight. DO NOT OVERLOAD the cabinets with heavy items. In general, the cabinets are designed to hold approximately 15 lbs. for each square foot of cabinet space.
