Why is part of the tongue or groove chipped off the panels? Are my panels defective?

The panels are not defective. During manufacturing, one corner of the overlap lip is intentionally milled off. This is to provide enough space for the four corners to fit together when four panels are connected. The milled tongue or groove does not impact the product performance or finished look.

Are DumaWall panels scratch resistant?

Yes, there is a durable, UV-cured, protective polyurethane layer on the surface of the panels. This wear- and-scratch-resistant layer will prevent moderate abuse.

DumaWall tiles have better wear and scratch resistance than most wall treatments, such as painted drywall or panelling. DumaWall panels should be cleaned with household or mild commercial cleaners that do not contain abrasives.
