PAINTED FINISH PRODUCT DISCLOSURE Wood of all species is hygroscopic, meaning that it is vulnerable to the humidity and temperature of its environment, and will thus lose or gain moisture and consequently shrink or swell depending on the ambient environment. Even protective coatings cannot prevent this movement, they merely retard the process.
When the final product is painted, the solid colored paints and glazes mask the joints on assembled face frames, doors, drawer fronts, and solid glued-up panels and accessories.
When there are fluctuations in the temperature and humidity of the environment, the wood components shrink or swell accordingly, sometimes resulting in the joints becoming visible in the form of small hairline cracks reflecting where the components are fitted during the assembly process. This is a natural phenomenon that can be minimized by maintaining a stable environment. The strength and integrity of the door is not compromised by these hairline cracks. Because this is a natural occurrence, the manufacturer or IWC Cabinetry LLC cannot accept responsibility for the inherent properties of wood and wood products, specifically hairline cracks that occur when environmental changes transpire.
