I only want to order a couple of boxes of flooring, can I do that?
We can absolutely arrange that for you - just send us an email to and we'll work on that with you directly.

If I'm located in the US, will my purchase incur any duties or extra charges?
It depends on what you're purchasing!
We have warehouses in the US from which our SPC, tile and hardscaping products ship for US customers, so there are no additional fees or duties on those products as they don't cross the border. 
Our Refuge paint products, Osmo stains, Twist lights and mattresses ship directly from Canada, so purchases exceeding $600 USD of those products will incur duties, for which the customer is responsible.

Do you accept returns? 
We hope you love your purchase, but customer satisfaction is of utmost importance to us. We can accept returns of unopened paint and stain products, lights and mattresses within 30 days of receiving your purchase. 

Please allow 5-­7 business days from when the item is delivered for your returned order to be processed. You will be notified via email at the email address listed on your account when your order was placed. Please note that your banking institution may require additional time to process and post this transaction to your account once they have received the information from us (typically 3-­5 business days).

We can only issue a refund to the original form of payment used at the point of purchase. In the event you no longer have access to this account or it is no longer active, we will then process your refund in the form of a check mailed to the address in your customer profile which can take 4-6 weeks to process. Original shipping charges are nonrefundable.

Yes, we can arrange for returns of excess boxes of flooring. There is a 25% restocking fee on flooring returns, and original shipping charges are nonrefundable. To coordinate a flooring return, send us an email to

Please be aware that all freighters and carriers are still advising of delays in transit and tracking due to the ongoing pandemic. Your order may take longer to begin tracking or to arrive. 

My samples never arrived. What do I do now?
Sample orders go out within 24-48 hours and ship via UPS. Unfortunately, due to the ongoing pandemic, UPS has suspended their service guarantee, and occasionally sample orders don't get scanned in properly and are delayed or sometimes don't arrive. The cost of the samples covers shipping, so sample packages are non-refundable. However, we are more than happy to send you a replacement sample package if your shipment does not start tracking within two weeks, or if it does not arrive within three weeks. 

I couldn't find the answer I was looking for, what do I do now?
