MITTEN INC. LIFETIME NON-PRORATED TRANSFERABLE LIMITED WARRANTY
Inc. proudly warrants the original purchaser of our siding for as long
as the original purchaser is the owner of the property to which our
products are applied. The said products will be free from manufacturing
defects. Any and all product failures covered by this Warranty as set
forth will be remedied by Mitten Inc. AT NO COST TO THE ORIGINAL
HOMEOWNER, if the Warranty is registered and the defect reported in
accordance with the terms thereof. The Lifetime non-prorated coverage in
this warranty is designed to cover individual homeowners only. In the
instance of siding purchased by or installed upon property owned by for
example; corporations, governments, condominiums or premises not used by
homeowners as their residences, the warranty period will be fifty years
following the installation of the siding and it will be prorated as
indicated herein. For such purchasers or entities to which the prorated
coverage applies, the warranty is transferable to a new owner by the
original purchaser under the terms and conditions set forth herein, in
which event it will cover the period of fifty years following the
installation of the siding (prorated as indicated herein).
Every piece of Mitten vinyl siding is manufactured with excellent impact resistance. Mitten Inc. warrants to the original
that should the siding receive damage from a hail storm, Mitten Inc.
will provide replacement material to cover those pieces which received
damage and provided that such damage is not covered by the homeowners
insurance policy or other insurance coverage. The homeowner shall be
responsible for the payment of all installation, labor and freight costs
The term "uniform weathering”
means the appearance of the color of the siding and does not refer to
the straightness or the even or level wall appearance of the siding.
Exposure to exterior elements can be expected to cause gradual and
uniform color change. This can vary, dependent on geographical location
and wall exposure. Mitten Inc. warrants that its products will weather
in a uniform manner. A defect will be defined as any weathering change
that occurs on a specific wall exposure in a manner that varies from
panel to panel (checkerboard effect). It is normal for a weathered
siding material to have slight and unobjectionable shade differences
underneath the butt (or shadow line) portions of the panel - as well as
underneath protected eaves and overhang areas.
Inc., at its discretion, shall determine whether the siding is
suffering from abnormal fading or natural weathering. This conclusion
shall be based on whether the siding shows a change in color in excess
of the Hunter units as calculated according to ASTM D2244. act ®
formulation is guaranteed against fade of 3 Hunter Units. PVC
formulations are guaranteed against fade of 4 Hunter Units. The fade
warranty will last as long as Mitten Inc.’s
Lifetime Limited warranty lasts, and upon transfer with the Property,
shall continue based upon the coverage terms for Mitten Inc.’s, Lifetime Limited Warranty. Siding which experiences color change due to normal weathering is excluded from this warranty.
CONDITIONS OF THIS WARRANTY
Warranty covers only defects in the manufacture of Mitten Vinyl Siding
and Accessories. It does not cover damage to such products caused by
faulty installation, settlement of the building, failure of the
structure (including foundations and walls), fire, wind,
lightning, or other acts of God, intentional acts, failure to provide
reasonable and necessary maintenance, accidental damage or negligence,
or exposure to atmospheric pollution, acid rain, salt spray, harmful
chemicals or vapors. Mitten Vinyl Siding and Accessories are not
warranted in the event that heat sources, such as BBQs, argon gas glass
units or other items that can reflect heat over and above 160oF, are
located in close proximity of the installed vinyl products. If a
homeowner neglects to keep the solid vinyl siding surface clean and a
harmful surface buildup is allowed to occur, restoration of the wall
appearance to a fresh and clean condition can become a difficult task.
In such cases, it is specifically the homeowners responsibility and not
the responsibility of either Mitten Inc. or the installing contractor to
restore the wall surface to a clean and fresh condition.
