ECO Windows Systems Warranty
Eco Window Systems (Impact Windows Warranty) EcoGuard Series Aluminum Windows & Doors
Eco Window Systems (“ECO”) warrants to the original owner that any ECO manufactured aluminum window or door shall be free of material defects in manufacturing and/or materials for the period specified below. This warranty applies to the window/door under normal use and service, subject to the conditions and limitations herein listed, and for only so long as the original owner owns the windows and doors. Eco’s liability under this warranty shall be limited to the repair or replacement of nonconforming goods or parts, at ECO’s option. ECO shall not be responsible for any incidental or consequential damages that may arise out of a claim for breach of this warranty.
This warranty covers only those manufacturing and material defects as specified herein and does not include defects or damages attributable to improper installation and or application of product, use or maintenance; normal weathering; highly corrosive environments; defects or damages caused by accident, fire, flood, acts of God, multiple hurricanes, water intrusion caused by wind-driven rain due to high wind events, vandalism, riot or civil disorder; building settlement or structural failures of walls or foundations; stresses resulting from localized heat which causes excessive temperature differentials over glass surface edges, or occurrences beyond ECO’s control. This warranty shall be null and void if harmful solvents are used to clean the frame and/or sash members, or if the frame and/or sash members are painted or coated in any way; or if any other “aftermarket” products are applied to the ECO product such as window films. Caulking is used on some installations to seal the frames (or trim package) against water or air penetration. Caulking is not considered a part of the ECO product and therefore, is not covered under this impact windows warranty. Caulking is normally considered a maintenance responsibility of the owner.
ECO’s sole responsibility under this warranty is limited to repairing or replacing (color may vary due to age, weathering or die lot Differences), free of charge or at a prorated price per guidelines of this instrument, any part or parts of the windows and doors that do not comply with the terms of this warranty. The original warranty period shall not be extended by such repair or replacement. ECO reserves the right to discontinue or change the design and specification of any product it manufactures. Should the component of the window/door originally installed not be available, ECO shall have the right to substitute such par t determined by ECO to be of equal quality and performance.
The aluminum components of the frame/sash members are warranted to be free of defects in materials and workmanship for a period of five (5) years after the date of delivery by ECO. Warranty is null and void if any aluminum component has direct contact with a copper treated wood, such as Alkaline Copper Quaternary (ACQ). Painted and clear anodize frames require reasonable care and periodic cleaning.
Glass has prevalent characteristics such as bubbles, discolorations, blurs and scratches. These are expected, as they are inherent qualities that meet or exceed standard specifications for flat glass ASTM C 1036, heat treated at glass ASTM C 1048 and laminated architectural flat glass ASTM C 1172. Heat strengthened or tempered glass may have distortions as an inherent quality. Glass with special coatings may require special cleaning.
In products specifically covered by this warranty, ECO warrants against stress cracks in glass panels for a period of 12 months after the date of delivery by ECO. Stress cracks in glass panels can result from natural settlement or extreme thermal changes between inside and outside temperatures. Stress cracks are not the result of defects in materials and/or workmanship. In the event of a stress crack during the 12-month warranty period, ECO will ship a replacement panel to the original owner at no cost (installation costs are not covered).
