MITTEN INC. LIFETIME NON-PRORATED TRANSFERABLE LIMITED WARRANTY

Mitten 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 individual 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).

HAIL DAMAGE

Every piece of Mitten vinyl siding is manufactured with excellent impact resistance. Mitten Inc. warrants to the original owner 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 associated.

UNIFORM WEATHERING

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.

COLOR-RICH COVERAGE

Mitten 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 thi s warranty.

CONDITIONS OF THIS WARRANTY

This 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, flood, 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.

Mitten Inc. reserves the right to discontinue or modify any of its products, including the color thereof, without notice to the homeowner/consumer and shall not be liable to the homeowner/consumer as a result of such discontinuance or modification, nor shall Mitten Inc. be liable in the event replacement material may vary in color or gloss in comparison to the original products as a result of normal weathering. If Mitten Inc. replaces any material under warranty, it may substitute products designated by Mitten Inc. to be of comparable quality or price range in the event the product initially installed has been discontinued or modified.

YOUR MITTEN INC. SOLID VINYL SIDING IS BEAUTIFUL. HERE IS HOW TO KEEP IT THAT WAY.

While Mitten Solid Vinyl Siding comes close to being virtually maintenance free, it will become dirty just as does a freshly painted house or a new automobile or any other product that is exposed to atmospheric conditions. Generally, your Mitten Inc. Solid Vinyl Siding can be cleaned satisfactorily through the use of an ordinary garden hose.

If this does not do the job, then we suggest the following:

  1. Equip the garden hose with a soft bristled, long-handle car brush for example.
  2. Where soil is of a stubborn nature, (as frequently found in industrial areas) the following cleaning solution works well: 1/3 c. detergent (Tide as an example) + 2/3 c. trisodium phosphate (Soilax as an example) + 1 gallon of water.

In certain geographic areas where mildew may be a problem, substitute one quart of 5% sodium hydrochloride (Clorox for example) for one quart water in the above formula.

When stubborn stains must be removed from the panel, an abrasive-type cleaner (Comet or Ajax for example) or SOS pads may be used without damage to the siding. The most damage that can be done to the panel of solid vinyl siding is to scratch or roughen the surface. This, however, is rarely visible a few feet away from the house.

Where the house is extremely dirty, it is recommended that you start washing from the bottom and go to the top, rinsing frequently. Cleaning solutions should be permitted to stand on the surface of the siding for several minutes before rinsing.

Follow the precautionary instructions on the cleaning agent container. Protect shrubs from direct contact with cleaning agents. For further information on caring for your vinyl siding, please visit www.vinylsiding.org/aboutsiding
