Tariffs on Hard Surface Flooring

Dear Valued Customers,
We are reaching out to inform you that due to the recent changes in US regulations on trade with China, 10% governmental tariffs have been imposed on all imported hard surface flooring. Note: per the publication from the USTR, starting January 1, 2019, the tariffs will increase from 10% to 25%.

Reflective of the new tariff regulations, the price of all hard surface flooring impacted will increase by 10%. Chinese products subjected to the increase include: ceramic tile, laminate, engineered wood flooring, and vinyl flooring products (including LVT). These increases will be effective beginning September 24, 2018.

Our sales associates are available to answer any questions you have. A complete list of price changes from our vendors will be available beginning September 21, 2018.

We are now facing another 5% increase on October 15th. The tariff will be affecting most hard surface product including Ceramic Tile, Laminate, and Engineered Wood and Vinyl products (including Vinyl Tile & Plank). Orders for Materials will need to be placed before October 1st to avoid the 5% increase.

In the face of this new tariff, we will strive to continue providing the best customer service possible. As we receive updates, we will continue to provide you, our valued customer, the most up to date information.

We appreciate your continued business and support as we navigate these new changes!

Sincerely,
Your Bay View Flooring & Design
