This limited transferable guarantee (the “Guarantee”) covers any defects in workmanship or materials in our 700 Series GardTech™ windows and doors as provided below.
What does this Guarantee cover?
- All vinyl extrusions are warranted against chipping, cracking, peeling, blistering, warping, or sagging.
- All balancers, rollers, locks, keepers, and hardware are warranted to operate properly and serve the design function.
- All glass units are warranted against seal failure which results in dust, film, or condensation forming between the panes of glass.
- Screen frames are covered for the full term of this warranty. Screen fabric, including accidental tears, are covered for the full term of this Guarantee with rescreening supplied free of charge at our factory.
- Color coated exteriors are warranted to perform under normal weathering conditions for a period of ten (10) years and will not crack, pit, peel, blister or suffer non-uniform fading discoloration, unless such discoloration results from unequal exposure of surfaces to the sun and elements.
Who is covered?
This Guarantee covers the owner of the premises in which our GardTech™ windows and doors are installed.
How long does the coverage last? If the product is installed in a single-family residence that you own or occupy at the time of initial installation, this Guarantee remains in force for as long as you own and occupy such residence. If the product is installed in a building other than an owner occupied single-family residence, the Guarantee is non transferable and will remain in force for ten (10) years from the date the product was originally installed in the premises. Proof of purchase is required to obtain warranty coverage.
What does this Guarantee not cover?
- This Guarantee does not cover damage resulting from fire, misuse, abuse, neglect, accident, acts of nature, or normal wear and tear (including natural weathering or fading of surfaces and/or hardware finishes).
- If you change or alter any item covered by this Guarantee, including, without limitation, by application of harmful solvents to the product, then this Guarantee will no longer apply to such item.
- Caulking/silicone is required in most installations. This is not considered a part of our product and is therefore not included in this Guarantee.
- This Guarantee does not cover condensation, as condensation is the natural result of moisture in the house and changes in temperature and humidity and does not indicate a defective window or door.
- GardTech™ windows and doors may, as an option, be purchased with unfinished wood interior surfaces (including bay or bow window shells) that must be finished prior to, or immediately after installation for maximum protection. Unfinished wood surfaces that experience water damage at the jobsite or are left unfinished after installation and become stained or damaged will not be considered as defective in materials or workmanship under the terms of this Guarantee.
How do I get service?
You may request service for your GardTech™ windows under this Guarantee by calling WeatherGard at 248-967-8822 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
What will WeatherGard do to correct the problem? If your GardTech™ windows are defective during the term of this Guarantee, then WeatherGard will provide, free of charge, all labor and materials required to repair or replace the defective items. WeatherGard has complete discretion to decide whether to repair or replace such defective items. Due to changes in technology, replacement materials may not be identical to the materials that were originally installed, but they will be of similar or higher quality. If the paint on any of your windows or patio doors is defective during the ten (10) year coverage term, then WeatherGard agrees, at its option, and at WeatherGard’s expense, to either the application of touch-up paint or the complete exterior surface recoating of such defective paint coating. Colors may vary slightly.
How do I transfer this Guarantee?
This Guarantee is transferable (for owner-occupied single-family residences only) one time only by the original purchaser to the successor owner of the property, provided WeatherGard receives written notice of the transfer of title to the property within 30 days after the date of transfer of ownership. Upon transfer to the successor owner, this Guarantee shall expire after a period of thirty-five (35) years from the original date of installation.
