During the period in which the material warranty is active, if all or any part of a product is found to have a manufacturing defect, Krumwiede Roofing & Exteriors will arrange with the manufacturer to have the defective portion of the product repaired/replaced. Krumwiede will aid the Owner in starting the claim and follow through the process until the claim is closed.
Limited Warranty for Misapplication.
During the period in which the workmanship warranty is active, if all or any part of a product is found to have application errors, Krumwiede Roofing & Exteriors will arrange to have the defective portion of the product repaired or, at its sole option, provide the Owner with a replacement product and reimburse the Owner for the full reasonable cost of labor. The cost of labor to remove the product and dispose of the existing product is not included in this warranty.
How to Obtain Warranty Service.
To submit a claim, the Owner must send a notice of claim in writing together with proof that this warranty was registered to the Owner with Krumwiede Roofing & Exteriors at 1330 W. Irving Park Rd, Bensenville, and IL 60106. Claims must be submitted to Krumwiede Roofing & Exteriors within thirty (30) days after discovery of the claimed defect. Krumwiede Roofing & Exteriors may require the Owner to submit, at the Owner’s expense, sample products for testing and photographs.
Krumwiede Roofing & Exteriors will then schedule an appointment to inspect the premises and the warranty claim within a reasonable period of time after having received the claim. If after inspection, Krumwiede Roofing & Exteriors determines that a valid claim exists under one or more of the warranties, Krumwiede Roofing & Exteriors will help start the manufacturer claim, repair, re-install, or replace the failing product as originally installed. If product is no longer available, Krumwiede Roofing & Exteriors shall have the right to substitute a product designated by Krumwiede Roofing & Exteriors to be equal quality.
Replacement of a product or component does not renew the warranty period. Minor color variations may exist between replacement product and the originally installed product and are not indicative of a defective product. If, at Krumwiede Roofing & Exterior’s option, a purchase price refund is conveyed to the Owner, then all warranties are terminated, and repair, replacement, or removal of Krumwiede roofing & Exteriors products shall become the sole responsibility of the Owner. If the Krumwiede Roofing & Exterior inspection determines that the claim is not covered by the warranty, the Owner agrees to pay Krumwiede Roofing & Exteriors a $250 fee to offset Krumwiede Roofing & Exterior’s cost of inspecting the Owner’s claim.
This warranty will be cancelled if the Owner fails to pay fee within 30 days of receipt of an invoice for it. No warranties are valid unless and until the Owner has made full payment under the original Krumwiede Roofing & Exterior sales agreement and addenda thereto. Non-warranty calls for repair or adjustment may result in a service charge. This warranty will not take effect unless all eligibility requirements have been satisfied and Krumwiede Roofing & Exteriors has been paid in full.
