Renovating Specialist Inc dba Sivan Windows and Door (“Seller”) makes the following express Installation Warranty for Covered Installations, subject to the stated conditions and limitations. Seller warrants that all installation work performed as part of a Covered Installation will be free of Installation Defects for a period of two (2) years from the date of substantial completion of the original installation.
An “installation defect” is an error that significantly impairs the proper operation of the product. If Seller is given Prompt Notice (as defined below) of an Installation Defect within two (2) years from the date of substantial completion of the original installation, Seller shall, at its sole discretion either 1) furnish labor to repair any such Installation Defect (and provide replacement materials if Seller determines such materials necessary to make the repairs) or 2) refund the original purchase price of the defective product(s) including the price of installation.
The “Buyer” is covered by this Warranty. For purpose of this Warranty, “Buyer” shall mean the individual(s) who owns and occupies the home when products are installed.
If Seller provided trim as part of the Covered Installation and such trim must be replaced under this Warranty, Seller shall provide reasonably suitable trim but cannot assure it will match the original trim.
The extent of coverage with respect to finishes is limited as set forth in this paragraph. If the original product or component was finished by Seller and a replacement is required because of a Product Defect (other than the finish itself) or Installation Defect pursuant to this Warranty, the product will be replaced with finish. If the finish was provided by someone other than Seller, the product or component replaced will not be finished and no coverage is provided by Seller for such finish.
Even where Seller chooses to repair or replace product, the coverage afforded by this Warranty does not include any labor or material associated with finishing space surrounding or adjacent to the repaired or replaced product (including, but not limited to, any stucco, painting, and carpentry work). Buyer is responsible for performing any finishing work to the home as a result of any warranty or servicing work, including, but not limited to, any stucco, painting, and carpentry work. Replacement product and installation provided pursuant to this Warranty shall be covered only for the remainder of the terms of this Warranty.
This Warranty is automatically transferred to any subsequent owner of the home on which the Covered Installation occurred. All subsequent owners (also referred to as “you” or “Buyer”) are subject to all conditions and limitations of this Warranty to the same extent and in the same manner as the original Buyer. This Warranty applies with equal force to multiple buyers, including spouses, and the term “Buyer” is both singular and plural as the case may be.
This Installation Warranty is the exclusive warranty for a Covered Installation. SELLER MAKES NO OTHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES WITH RESPECT TO THE INSTALLATION OF YOUR PRODUCTS.
THIS WARRANTY SETS FORTH THE MAXIMUM LIABILITY FOR THE INSTALLATION WORK. IN NO EVENT (INCLUDING WHERE SELLER HAS NO PERFORMANCE OBLIGATIONS DUE TO THE OPERATION OF CONDITIONS OR LIMITATIONS) SHALL SELLER OR INSTALLER BE LIABLE FOR ANY INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR SPECIAL DAMAGES RESULTING FROM THE SALE, INSTALLATION, SERVICE OR USE OF ANY PRODUCTS. IN NO EVENT SHALL THE LIABILITY OF SELLER OR INSTALLER EXCEED THE PRICE PAID FOR THE PRODUCT AND INSTALLATION.
THE EXCLUSIVE REMEDY OF THE BUYER, AND THE SOLE LIABILITY OF SELLER AND INSTALLER FOR ANY AND ALL CLAIMS, LOSSES, INJURIES OR DAMAGES (INCLUDING CLAIMS BASED ON BREACH OF WARRANTY, CONTRACT, NEGLIGENCE, TORT, STRICT LIABILITY OR OTHERWISE) RESULTING FROM THE SALE, INSTALLATION, SERVICE OR USE OF A PRODUCT OR INSTALLATION SERVICE, SHALL BE, AT THE OPTION OF SELLER, REPAIR OF INSTALLATION DEFECT OR PRODUCT DEFECT OR RETURN OF THE ORIGINAL PURCHASE PRICE. IF SELLER PROVIDES ANY OF THE REMEDIES IDENTIFIED IN THE INSTALLATION WARRANTY ABOVE (I.E., REPAIR OR REFUND), THEN BUYER AGREES THAT THIS REMEDY SHALL NOT HAVE FAILED OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE.
