All such additional costs will be the responsibility of the customer.

Evolved Floors may not be held liable for height differences between the new installation and existing doors. All such additional costs will be the responsibility of the customer.
- Carpet Installation. When the carpet selected is too thin, the spikes on the grippers at the perimeter of the room may protrude through the carpet.
