Alside Premium Vinyl Siding and Soffit are warranted by Alside, against blistering, corroding, flaking and peeling as a direct result of defects occurring in the manufacturing process, under normal use and service, subject to the terms and conditions contained in this Warranty
If Alside determines that a claim is valid in accordance with the terms of this Warranty, Alside agrees, at itвЂ™s sole option, to repair, refinish or replace only the defective siding panels and assume 100% of the cost of material and labor to the Property Owner.
In the event that the building upon which the warranted siding and/or soffit have been installed comprises multiple residential or commercial units, including condominiums, then each individually addressed unit shall be deemed to be a separate property owner unit for all applicability purposes of this Limited Warranty. For an entity other than living persons, the warranty period shall be for fifty (50) years from the original date of installation, under this Limited Warranty
This limited lifetime warranty (this "Warranty") remains in effect for as long as the owner(s) of the property to which the Products were originally applied [the "Original Property Owner(s)"] continues to live in and to own the property. In the event that there is more than one Original Property owner, this warranty will remain in effect as long as one of the Original Property Owners is living and owns an interest in the property Upon change in ownership, this Warranty may be transferred to the new owner(s) ("Subsequent Transferee(s)") as a Fifty (50) Year non-prorated Warranty from the date of original installation of the Products.
Alside does not warrant installation nor defects caused by installation. This Warranty covers only the specific manufacturing defects as specified herein. This Warranty does not cover any other damages or material failure including, but not limited to, normal weathering, oxidation, Acts of God, fire, flood, impact from foreign objects, chemical pollutants, mildew, structural defects, negligent maintenance or abuse. Normal weathering may cause any surface to oxidize, chalk or accumulate surface dirt or stains due to varying exposures to sunlight, weather and atmospheric conditions. The geographic location, the quality of the atmosphere and other local factors in the area, over which Alside has no control, contribute to the severity of these conditions. This Warranty is valid only if genuine Alside Premium Vinyl Siding or Soffit are used, but shall be void if accessory Products incompatible with the siding or soffit are installed which cause defects to occur.
Even though fading may be excluded under the terms of this Warranty as normal weathering, for a period of five (5) years from the date of the original installation of the Products, Alside will cover fading on the following basis: Alside upon notification and validation of the complaint, will, solely at its option, either repair, replace or refinish (providing materials and labor) Products that have faded, provided such fading is in excess of 4 Hunter units of Delta E, as determined by Alside. Due to normal weathering, replacement Products may differ in gloss and color from Products that were originally installed.
Alside Premium Vinyl Siding and/or Soffit is also warranted against damage from hail. In such cases, upon authorization, the replacement materials only are covered. In the case of hail damage, the homeowner should first pursue their homeownersвЂ™ insurance policy for coverage thereunder. In the event that coverage is denied by insurance carrier, homeowner will be entitled to the hail protection coverage hereunder. All other costs of replacement of hail-damaged Products, including the cost of labor shall be the sole responsibility of the Original Property Owner(s) or subsequent owner(s) of the property.
Any claims for defects under this Warranty must be reported to Alside, Consumer Services Group, 1-800-489-1144 within the warranty period and promptly after discovery of the claimed defect, describing the defect claimed. Proof of product purchase and proof of property ownership is required for coverage hereunder. The homeowner may be asked to complete a questionnaire and submit photos and/or samples, or at AlsideвЂ™s option, a reasonable time shall be allowed for inspection purposes. The obligation of Alside, under this Warranty, shall be performed only by persons designated and compensated by Alside for that purpose and is subject to all other provisions of this Warranty.
The original warranty shall not be extended by any such work performed, but the remaining warranty time period shall continue in effect and be applicable under the terms and conditions of this Warranty to the warranty work performed. A color variance may occur between any new replacement panel in comparison to the originally installed panels due to weathering exposure and would not be indicative of defective siding or soffit. Alside reserves the right to discontinue or change any siding or soffit as manufactured. If the siding or soffit originally installed is not available and Alside determines to replace the defective siding, Alside shall have the right to substitute siding or soffit designated by Alside to be of equal quality. Alside may elect to refund the original purchase price for only the defective materials.
The provisions of this Warranty are the full and complete warranty policy extended by Alside.
This Warranty shall remain in effect only if normal cleaning practices are performed for maintenance of the siding or soffit. (See Care and Maintenance.) This Warranty shall be null and void if harmful cleaning compounds are used.
THE WARRANTY STATEMENTS CONTAINED IN THIS LIMITED WARRANTY SET FORTH THE ONLY EXPRESS WARRANTIES EXTENDED BY ALSIDE FOR THE SIDING OR SOFFIT AND THE PROVISIONS HEREOF SHALL CONSTITUTE THE PROPERTY OWNERвЂ™S EXCLUSIVE REMEDY FOR BREACH OF THIS WARRANTY. ALSIDE SHALL NOT BE LIABLE TO THE PROPERTY OWNER FOR INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OF ANY KIND FOR BREACH OF ANY EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTY ON THE SIDING OR SOFFIT.
Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitations or exclusions may not apply to you. This Warranty gives you specific legal rights and you may also have other rights which vary from state to state.
The Care and Cleaning of Vinyl Siding & SoffitLike any other exterior siding surface, Alside Premium Vinyl Siding and Soffit will have dirt exposure from atmospheric conditions. Ordinarily, the cleaning action of rainfall will be adequate to wash the vinyl siding. However, vinyl siding and soffit should be washed periodically by hosing with a garden hose and clear water particularly in those areas not exposed directly to rain. If you desire to do a more thorough cleaning, or where high soil collection conditions occur, follow these simple instructions.
1. Use a soft-bristled, long-handled washing brush. It attaches to your garden hose and makes washing your siding easier. Do not rub vigorously which may create glossy areas over the vinyl siding finish.
2. For hard-to-remove dirt, such as soot and grime found in industrial areas, wipe the siding down with a solution consisting of the following ingredients:
1/3 cup powdered detergent (Tide, Fab or an equivalent powder detergent)
3. If mildew is a problem in your area, prepare the solution above but substitute 1 quart of laundry bleach for 1 quart of water.
4. If you wash down the entire house, start at the bottom and work up to the top, as less streaking will result.
5. It is important that immediately following all washing operations, the entire surface be thoroughly rinsed with fresh water from a garden hose. Avoid prolonged or high pressure rinsing of open, ventilated areas.
6. For best results when using a cleaning solution, select an overcast cool day (55Вє-75Вє) and wash only small areas at a time. This should allow the wet cleaning solution to remain in contact with the finish for a period of not less than 3 minutes; then rinse with clear water before it has a chance to dry.
CAUTION: GREATER CONCENTRATIONS MAY CAUSE DAMAGE TO THE VINYL SIDING FINISH. DO NOT USE CLEANERS CONTAINING ABRASIVE PARTICLES, SOLVENT OR AMMONIATED-TYPE CLEANERS OR PAINT REMOVER FOR CLEANING THE VINYL SIDING. WHEN USING ANY OF THE ABOVE CHEMICAL CLEANING AGENTS, OBSERVE THE CHEMICAL MANUFACTURERвЂ™S RECOMMENDED SAFETY PRECAUTIONS. PROTECT AGAINST CONTACT OF THE SOLUTION WITH EYES OR SKIN.
This cleaning and maintenance information is suggested in an effort to be of assistance; however, Alside can assume no responsibility for results obtained which are dependent on the solution chemicals as prepared and method of application.
