High-Efficiency Ridge Vents
LIMITED, NON-PRORATED AND TRANSFERABLE
WHAT AND WHO IS COVERED AND FOR HOW LONG
Provided that the ridge vent has been installed in strict accordance with Air Vent Inc. (Air Vent) written installation instructions, Air Vent warrants that its ridge vent will be free from manufacturing defects during the lifetime of the original purchaser.
Should any manufacturing defect occur during the lifetime of the original purchaser (and as long as the original purchaser is still living and retains ownership of the property), Air Vent will provide replacement material for that portion of the product deemed to be defective (not including labor costs incurred in removing defective vent or installing replacement product).
In the event of replacement according to the terms of this warranty, the original warranty on the replacement material will extend for the balance of the warranty period in effect at the time the vent proved defective.
The lifetime coverage offered by this warranty automatically ends upon the sale of the property or death of the last of the original owners of the property at the time of installation.
The lifetime coverage in this warranty is designed to cover individual homeowners only. In the case of ridge vent purchased by, or installed upon property owned by, corporations, governmental agencies, partnerships, trusts, religious organizations, schools, condominiums or cooperative housing arrangements, or installed on apartment buildings or any other type of building or premises not used by individual homeowners as their residences, the warranty period will be 50 years following the installation of the ridge vent.
REPLACEMENT PLUS PROTECTION
Air Vent ridge ventilation products are covered by Replacement Plus Protection for a period of 5 (five) years, provided that the ridge vent has been installed in strict accordance with Air Vent's written installation instructions. Under this warranty feature, Air Vent, at no charge, will replace any ridge vent found to be defective during the Replacement Plus period (the Replacement Plus period begins when the ridge vent application is completed). Air Vent's maximum liability under Replacement Plus will be equal to the reasonable cost to replace the defective ridge vent, including labor.
In instances in which Air Vent, according to the terms of this warranty, has agreed to pay the cost of labor required to replace a defective ridge vent, Air Vent will provide reimbursement only upon receipt of a copy of the contractor's invoice or other written evidence of the completion of the work which Air Vent, at its sole discretion, deems acceptable.
If there is a change in ownership, the warranty may be transferred by the original purchaser of the ridge vent to the new owner under the terms and conditions of this warranty. The warranty will then cover the period of 50 years following the purchase of the ridge vent.
If the warranty is transferred from the original purchaser to a new owner during the 5 (five) year Replacement Plus period, the remaining period of Replacement Plus Protection will be available to the subsequent property owner. At the end of the Replacement Plus protection period, the warranty will cover 50 years following the purchase of the ridge vent.
Air Vent shall not be liable for, and this warranty does not apply to, any failure, defect or damage resulting from or connected with misuse, abuse, neglect or improper handling or storage, or installation not in strict adherence to Air Vent's written instructions; impact of foreign objects, fire, flood, earthquake, lightning, hurricane, hail, tornado or other violent storms or other act of God; or defects in, failure of or damage caused by materials used as a roofing base over which the vent is installed or by movement, distortion, cracking or settling of walls or the foundation of the building.
Air Vent reserves the right to discontinue or modify any of its products, including color, and shall not be liable as a result of such discontinuance or modification, nor shall Air Vent be liable in the event replacement material may vary in color in comparison to the original product as a result of normal weathering. If Air Vent replaces any material under this warranty, it may substitute products designated by Air Vent to be of comparable quality or price range in the event the product initially installed has been discontinued or modified.
THIS WARRANTY IS EXPRESSLY IN LIEU OF ALL OTHER ORAL OR WRITTEN WARRANTIES, LIABILITIES OR OBLIGATIONS OF AIR VENT. PERTINENT STATE LAW SHALL CONTROL FOR WHAT PERIOD OF TIME SUBSEQUENT TO SALE A CONSUMER/HOMEOWNER MAY SEEK A REMEDY PURSUANT TO THE IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. IN NO EVENT SHALL AIR VENT BE LIABLE FOR CONSEQUENTIAL OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES OF ANY KIND, INCLUDING ANY DAMAGE TO THE BUILDING, ITS CONTENTS OR ANY PERSONS THEREIN, RESULTING FROM THE BREACH OF ANY WARRANTY SET FORTH HEREIN. NO FIELD REPRESENTATIVE OF AIR VENT OR ANY DISTRIBUTOR OR DEALER IS AUTHORIZED TO MAKE ANY CHANGE OR MODIFICATION TO THIS WARRANTY. SOME STATES DO NOT ALLOW LIMITATIONS ON OR THE EXCLUSION OF INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE EXCLUSIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights that vary from state to state.
