In order to assist our customers, we've decided to allow every single order no matter how large or small to always be $14.95 shipped FedEx, which is the minimum it costs for us to ship out any items. This essentially means the more you purchase, the more you save.
In order to file a warranty claim or return, you absolutely must have the original packing slip and receipt that is paired with your shipped order. Any product you are returning must be "like new" in exactly same manner as shipped (factory condition) for eligibility to return items. Inclusion but not limited to these elements: odors, stains, cracks, trimming, punctures or tears. Our guidelines for returning are below:
Guarantee of Return:
The effective date of the return guarantee starts at the time of the shipping date of the product or, if in store pickups, the day of pickup. The product must be exactly like it was in factory condition and any alterations what-so-ever to the product will void the product of warranty or guarantee of return. Any product you are returning must be "like new" in exactly same manner as shipped (factory condition) for eligibility to return items. Inclusion but not limited to these elements: odors, stains, cracks, trimming, punctures or tears.
We we ship a product to you and it returns to our shipping facilities, the customer is responsible for all shipping costs involved, including offering us a correct shipping address and paying the cost of that shipping. If an item is shipped back, this will incur a second shipping cost which may exceed the original deal of $14.99 which is included with all initial pre-tax sales. Payment for shipping must be made ahead of time before the item is to be shipped (first time or additional times). If the product is purchased either online or at a physical store location and then shipped back to our store location, the customer is responsible for shipping costs. If the customer purchases a product in a physical store location and then returns the item to the store, there will be an undisputed 25% restocking fee. It should be noted that due to the way the foam is manufactured, it is normal to see slight imperfections which will not cause effects in the performance of the product overall. This is normal in the process of manufacturing the foam and should not be looked at as a reason to return the item.
After we accept a return policy, the product has three weeks (21 total days) of the pick-up date or shipping date to be physically in hand at our shipping facilities.
We do not accept any warranty or returns based off any other manner than what is listed below:

We want the most cost effect, simple and positive outcome for our customers when it comes to satisfaction of our customer service. We cannot ship out any replacement products unless the customers items are already placed in the mail back to our shipping facilities with a receipt for shipping as proof.

Exchanges that have been Authorized
If we authorize an exchange, the customer will be responsible for all the shipping and handling costs to and from our shipping facilities. The product will not be exchange if it is not in factory mint condition.
The Foam's Scent
On frequent occurrence, the new foam will have a "factory fresh" smell to it as it's cut and stored with several other pieces of foam in the same area. This smell is usually only present in brand new foam. This smell does not make it ineffective for soundproofing purposes in any way, shape or form. The smell will subside over time when it has the opportunity to be aired out. Sometimes people don't notice a scent, sometimes they do. Either way, it will usually be gone within about two weeks of airing out. Since this is normal to have a fresh scent, it is not means to return the item as a defect and if it is shipped anyway, the customer is responsible for shipping and handling costs to and from our shipping facility as well as being subject to a 25% restocking fee. The item must also be in factory fresh mint condition as it was shipped to them in order for it to be accepted for a return.
Making a Return
Any products sent back for returns or warranty claims must be paired with the original receipt sent with the packing slip on the package for us to accept your order.
