A. LIMITED WARRANTY COVERAGE.
EDCO Entex coated soffit, fascia, gutter system and trim coil (“Building Materials”) are warranted to you, the original property owner(s), by the manufacturer EDCO Products, Incorporated (“EDCO”). EDCO warrants against the Building Materials containing manufacturing defects which result in cracking, chipping or peeling. Additionally, EDCO warrants to you that the Building Materials, after removal of foreign surface deposits, will not show a color change in excess of 5 Delta E units (NBS) as a result of normal weathering or ultraviolet exposure for a period of thirty-five (35) years from the date of installation. This Limited Warranty remains in effect for as long as the original property owner(s) are living and are the owner(s) of the property to which the Building Materials were initially applied. In the event there is more than one original property owner, this Limited Warranty will remain in effect as long as one of the original property owner(s) is living and owns an interest in the property to which the Building Materials were initially applied. With respect to application of the Building Materials to property owned by entities (non-individual human beings such as corporations, limited liability companies, governmental entities or agencies, religious organizations, trusts, condominium or cooperative housing arrangements, intangible legal entities and other entities or organizations), the duration of this limited warranty is fifty (50) years and is nontransferable. This Limited Warranty shall be valid only after the registration certificate is completely filled in by the original property owner(s), signed, and received by EDCO Products, Incorporated within thirty (30) days after completion of installation of the Building Materials or purchase from the builder of your newly constructed structure.
