I am planning to install cork tiles in my half bath, which is only
about 30 squares. Have been searching the web and am ready to
purchase online. The question is, how important is the warranty. Are
these cork tiles easily damaged? Would be nice to avoid paying $150
for a five year warranty.
What does the warranty cover? What's your downside? Generally, these
warranties are useless and if anything cover only product defects, something
that is hard to prove. Without more information it's hard to say, though.
Were it me I wouldn't buy any warranty at $5/ft^2! (I assume you mean 1'
It sounds like you're talking about an EXTENDED WARRANTY.
(not the one that came with the tiles).
Extended warranties are almost always a waste of money. The only
exception may be a high cost item like a car. Heck, one time I bought
a $20 electric drill, just your basic cheap plug in drill. At the
checkout I was asked if I wanted the extended warranty. I asked the
price, and it was something like $15. Shit, at that rate, I'll just
buy another drill when this one dies, which will either likely be
after the extended warranty expires, OR it will die immediately when I
still have the factory warranty.
Dont waste your money....
And by the way. $150 for the warranty on 30 friggin tiles?????
That's $5 per tile..... How much do these tiles cost just for the
tiles alone? Most tiles are only a couple bucks each, or less....
(this warranty sounds like highway robbery).
