The Limited Warranty by EuroLite Doors, LC., applies to any EuroLite window and door and is effective from the date of shipment from the EuroLite Warehouse. This Limited Warranty is applicable to products sold in the United States and Canada is fully transferable with sale of the building that product(s) are installed within.
EuroLite Doors, LC., warrants its steel doors and windows structures, to be free from defect in material and workmanship for a period of 20 years from the Shipment Date. We will repair or replace any defective product or parts at the sole discretion of EuroLite Doors, LC.
EuroLite Doors, LC., Limited glass warranty applies to factory installed glass or glass installed by a representative of EuroLite Doors, LC., and warrants clear insulated glass units free from material obstruction of vision as a result of fogging or film formation on the internal glass surfaces caused by a seal failure due to defects in either material or workmanship for the period of 10 years. Glass carries manufacturers warranty. All glass and glass components are subject to the same warranties, limitations and exclusions that EuroLite Doors, LC., receives from their suppliers (See Pilkington Glass Warranty). This warranty does not apply to alleged defects resulting from improper use or handling, excessive exposure to moisture, incompatible glazing materials, glass breakage, unauthorized application of any film to the glass surface, neglect of timely removal (not more than six months) of the factory applied protective film or any reason not related to defects in material or workmanship of the relevant product. Imperfections in glass shall be determined in accordance with ASTM Standards.
Our Akzo Nobel Marine Grade Finishes are warranted for 5 years from the Shipment Date from defects other than normal fading. Finishes age as a natural process which means they will change over time and are affected by handling and climate. Exterior doors with a thermal break are more susceptible to heat damage, since the thermal break prevents dissipation of heat into the building. Direct sunshine or a heat source may cause damage which is not covered by warranty if the door surface temperature exceeds 180º. Determination of defect on any product that is within one mile of a sea coast or has exposure to a salt environment will be guided by what is deemed normal for an ocean coastal environment. As such only deterioration or degradation of the finish; such as peeling, flaking, or blistering, beyond what is normal for a coastal environment falls under warranty. Should the factory finish be proven defective, we will, at our discretion, refinish the product or refund up to $500.00 to the current owner.
