Our Vinyl Record Warp Correction Service includes:

  • One standard poly outer sleeve



Q1: How does the process work?

A1: Our record warp correction system combines gentle heat, pressure and time to work the warp out of a record. It works on everything from minor warps to "dish" warps, and even major warps. Your record is placed between two felt lined heavy metal plates, lightly clamped, and then placed in to an insulated warming bag with a heating element sewn in to the bottom. The unit is then turned on, and gentle heat is applied in addition to pressure. The heating element is precisely temperature controlled by an external heating unit. After some time, the assembly is allowed to cool to room temperature and in most cases, the warp is removed.

Q2: Won't the heat damage the record?

A2: In the vast majority of cases, no. The temperature is not set high enough to damage grooves, but is just high enough to make the record slightly malleable so that along with time, it will flatten. Depending on record weight, age, production era, and the severity of the warp, the temperature is set between 125F and 130F. While the odds of damage occurring are extremely low, when applying heat and pressure to a vinyl record there could be risks. Please read our Service Terms & Conditions below.

Q3: Will my record be perfectly flat?

A3: In some cases yes, and in some cases no. The purpose of the service isn't to make records perfectly flat, the purpose is to make a warped record much flatter so it is playable again. For results you can expect, please watch our before and after videos below.

Q4: Are there warps that can't be fixed?

A4: Yes. Severe warps caused by extensive heat exposure generally have groove damage. These can't be fixed. Warps with sharp folds also generally cannot be fixed. Also, very thin (120g or less) records tend to not perform as well as heavier records. There will still most likely be a significant result, but it won't be as dramatic as with a 150 gram or heavier record. When you drop your records off, we'll be able to tell you right away if something can be flattened or not.

Q5: How long does the process take?

A5: Depending on a few different factors, the flattening process can take anywhere from 2 to 12 hours. For some severe warps or very thin records, treatment could take longer.

Q6: What happens if after 12 hours of treatment the warp isn't gone?

A6: In most cases, after 12 hours of treatment there will be a significant result, and most records will be fully playable. In some cases, removing a warp may take longer than 12 hours. Should you wish to try again, another treatment session can be purchased.

Q7: How do I get my records to you?

A7: The best way is to simply drop them off. Our office and pick up location at 658 Queen Street West is open Tuesday through Saturday from 12:00pm to 5:00pm EST.

Q8: Can I mail my records in, have them flattened, and then have them mailed back to me?

A8: Yes, however please read the Service Terms & Conditions below.

Q9: Does Resolute Records guarantee results?

A9: Please read the Service Terms & Conditions below.

Q10: Does Resolute Records guarantee my records will not be damaged?

A10: Please read the Service Terms & Conditions below.

Q9: What is the turnaround time?

A9: This depends on current demand. As the process can take a long time, only 1 to 3 records can be flattened in a typical work day. We will inform you of current turnaround times when your records are dropped off or mailed in.
