Konecto 25 yr warranty = 1 yr warranty if bought online!!
What would you do?
We are just about decided on doing Konecto Sierra (Springfield) in ~700 s.f. of space (family room, bedroom). Going through a flooring store will cost us $4.59/s.f. plus 2.00/s.f. installation, bringing the total just over $5K. Love the idea of having someone else do it, but that's a goodly sum of money.
We're handy people, so we thought maybe we'd do it ourselves (it is Konecto, after all!) Online we can get the same product for $2.59/s.f. plus shipping. Total comes $1-2K under the flooring store (just for materials).
The thing is, I read through the Konecto warranty and it's supposed to be a 25 year warranty, except for this little caveat at the bottom: "Residential flooring products purchased on the internet are subject to a 1-year limited warranty."
I figure they do this to keep their retailers in business, but honestly, is it worth saving $$ if the warranty is void? What would you do?
