Peaceful Patios Fiberglass Product Limited Warranties
Arbors Direct extends the following Limited Warranty (the “Warranty”) to original purchasers of its materials and components (the “Product”).
An “Original Purchaser” is a retailer, distributor, builder or supplier that purchases the Product or the first individual homeowner who purchases the Product from a retailer, distributor, builder or supplier, whether or not the Product has been installed.
This Warranty is not transferable to subsequent owners of the property on which the Product has been installed.
Excepting finishes, which are addressed below, Arbors Direct warrants that when used under conditions of normal use and service and when properly installed in conformance with all Arbors Direct installation instructions and all governing building codes, the Product shall conform to the specifications set forth in Arbors Direct’s published specifications in effect as of the date of shipment by Arbors Direct and shall be free from defects in material and workmanship. Should a Product prove defective after review by Arbors Direct of any claim, Arbors Direct will provide replacement parts of those materials that it deems defective after its review. Installation and labor costs are NOT covered under this Warranty.
Limited Warranty Time Periods.
Single Family Residential - Limited Lifetime
MF Residential or Commercial - 25 Years
Arbors Direct warrants that the finish it has applied to the product will be free from defects. When used for its intended purpose, properly installed and maintained according to Arbors Direct‘s installation instructions, for a period of 10 years from the date of shipment (a) will not peel (b) will not chip and (c) will not crack. This Warranty does not cover against fade or chalk of the Finish due to normal weathering. Normal weathering means exposure to sunlight and extremes of weather and atmosphere, which will cause any painted surface to gradually fade, chalk or accumulate dirt over time. This Warranty will cover Arbors Direct‘s finish against excess color change beyond normal weathering. Excess color change means a change in color of Arbors Direct‘s Finish by greater than four (4) delta E units. Arbors Direct shall have the sole discretion to determine whether the Product exhibits excess color change.
Only “finishes” applied by Arbors Direct are covered under this Warranty; for purposes of this Limited Warranty, “finish” means any paint or coating or cap stock applied by Arbors Direct. With respect to any paint or other coating applied to the Product after shipment by Arbors Direct, Original Purchasers must look to the warranty or warranties, if any, of the paint or coating manufacturer of such paint or coating for recourse as to defects or any other issue concerning such post-shipment, applied coatings.
