Customer is obligated to examine the Products upon delivery for completeness and obvious malfunctioning (sight inspection). Customer shall promptly inform Company of any obviously missing Product and/or obvious defects, and shall return such faulty Products to Company for replacement or credit, as determined by Company, at Company’s expense. Customer may not knowingly sell any faulty Products. Customer must notify Company in writing within five business days after delivery of any nonconforming Products or any deficiencies or shortages, otherwise all such claims shall be deemed waived by Customer. Unless Company otherwise agrees in writing, Customer shall have no right to withhold payment or to adjust the amount of payment to Company because of any such claim, the sole remedy of Customer being replacement of the nonconforming or defective Products, which remedy shall be in lieu of Customer’s right to consequential damages or any other remedy available under applicable laws; provided, however, that: (i) Company shall have no obligation to replace any such Products if Customer is in default under any agreement between Customer and Company, and (ii) the foregoing bar on withholding payment and limitation of liability shall have no application if Company shall fail to replace any nonconforming or defective Products within a commercially reasonable time after notice thereof. Any Products delivered to Customer but not accepted shall be held and stored by Customer in a commercially reasonable manner, and Company shall be given a reasonable amount of time to recover such Products at Company’s expense.
Company hereby warrants to the Products to be free of manufacturing defects. The Products must be fabricated and installed in accordance with the Durasein® Fabrication and Installation guidelines, and used and maintained in accordance with instructions provided by Company. Company at its sole option will repair or replace, such products if it fails due to any manufacture defect during the first ten years from the date of initial installation, with necessary and reasonable labor charges. All repairs or replacements hereunder are to be performed by Company or its designated agents. Although Company shall make its best effort to repair or replace with the best possible color match to the original as possible, Company cannot guarantee the exact color in the event of repair or replacement. This warranty excludes the following:
- Minor conditions such as stains, scratches, water spots and burns, which due to the unique properties of the Products may be corrected by techniques specified in Company’s care & maintenance instructions;
- Failure to comply with Company’s instructions including fabrication, installation, care, maintenance and/or related issued;
- Any Products moved from their original place of installation;
- Failure or dissatisfaction with appearance of joints or seams, or of any adhesive, caulk or other
- Accessory items;
- Color variation from the sample;
- Failure caused by other substructure support;
- Abuse (including physical or chemical);
- Improper installation or maintenance;
- Damage caused by extreme heat;
- Damage caused by an act of nature such as fire, flood, earthquakes, etc.;
- Workmanship of any fabricator or installers;
- Damages from other than manufacturing defect; and
- Normal wear and tear.
Color and pattern variations may occur. Samples are representative of the Products’ characteristics and are not an exact replication of the materials to be received. This does not affect the Products’ performance. The Customer must advise Company or its designated agent in writing of a Product’s defect prior to the expiration of the warranty period. The Customer must also furnish to Company or its designated agent the name and address of the original fabricator and installer. This warranty is NOT transferable. This warranty is issued to the original Customer (meaning the owner at the time of purchase of the structure into which Product was installed) and expires upon transfer of ownership of the structure. A purchase receipt or other proof of date of original purchase will be required before warranty service is rendered. Company neither assumes nor authorizes any person or company to assume for Company any other obligations or liability in connection with the Products.
Waiver of consequential damages
In no event shall Company be liable for any special, incidental, indirect, or consequential damages arising under tort, contract, strict liability or any other legal theories, including, without limitation, loss of profit or revenue, downtime costs, loss of use of the Products or costs for any substitute Products. This waiver shall remain in full force and effect despite failure of Company’s efforts to replace defective Products pursuant to these terms and conditions. Customer understands Company’s waiver of liability for consequential damages is part of a bargain to lower the price of the Products, and Customer understands the price of the Products would be higher if Company was required to bear the risk of consequential damages.

No failure of Company to pursue any remedy resulting from a breach of these Terms & conditions by Customer shall be construed as a waiver of that breach, nor as a waiver of any subsequent or other breach or relinquishment of any rights hereunder unless such waiver is signed and in writing. If any provision of these Terms & conditions shall be invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any respect, such a provision shall be considered separate and severable from the remaining provisions hereof, and the validity, legality or enforceability of any of the remaining provisions hereof shall not be affected or impaired by such provision in any way.
