FIFTY (50) YEAR FULLY TRANSFERABLE LIMITED
FIFTY (50) YEAR WORKMANSHIP AND MATERIALS WARRANTY
TWENTY FIVE (25) YEAR APPEARANCE WARRANTY
120-MILES PER HOUR WIND SPEED WARRANTY AND HAIL STONE IMPACT PENETRATION
Metrotile Manufacturing Company (d.b.a Metro Roof Products)
(Hereafter called MRP) hereby warrants each Metro roofing
panel it sells will be free from manufacturing defects in workmanship
and materials, will resist hail damage, and will not blow off in any wind
up to 120 miles per hour, for fifty years from the date of installation
under the terms and conditions set out below. For the purpose of this
limited warranty, hail damage is defined as penetration of hail stones
completely through the panel and/or cracking or splits of the panel steel
substrate around the point of impact. This "limited warranty"
shall extend to the original purchaser who has the panels installed as
part of the roof they own and to subsequent owners of the roof. MRPs
obligation under this warranty shall be, at its option to repair or replace
the defective panel(s), provided MRPs liability shall be limited
to a total expenditure not too exceed the original cost of the particular
defective panel(s) during the first twenty years after installation and
declining annually on a prorated basis over the thirty years thereafter.
MRP also warrants, for the first twenty-five years
from the date of installation, if the surface coating of the panel deteriorates
to the extent the appearance of the roof is substantially affected, taking
all the circumstances into account, then MRP will, at its option, either
repair or replace the panel(s) or apply Metrobond surface coating or similar
surface coating to the panel(s); provided that the liability of MRP with
respect to the surface coating shall be limited to a total expenditure
not too exceed the original cost of the particular panel or panels during
the first twenty years after the installation and declining annually on
a prorated basis over the five years thereafter. top
This warranty is subject to the following conditions:
- A written notice of change of ownership of the roof
must be sent by the subsequent owner, within 30 days from change of
ownership, by registered mail to MRP at its address set forth below.
- A written notice of defect must be sent by registered
mail to MRP at its address set forth below. The notice must contain
the name and address of the owner of the claimed defective panel or
panels and must describe the defect in detail.
- This warranty shall not apply to any damage caused
by not following the manufacturers instructions for walking on
the roof, and damage caused by defects, movement or subsidence in the
structure on which the roof is installed, nor any damage caused by failure
to follow the manufacturers installation instructions. Whether
a Metro panel roof is leak proof or not depends almost entirely on how
the panels are installed and therefore no warranty is made by MRP as
to whether roofs containing panels covered by this warranty will prove
to be leak proof. A separate warranty covering installation of the panels
may be made available from the installation contractor.
- This warranty is the only warranty MRP makes in
respect of the Metro Roof Products it sells. Dealers and installers
of the Metro Roof Products roofing panels are not authorized to extend
or modify the terms of this warranty in any manner.
- MRP shall have no liability for any consequential,
incidental indirect or special damage or loss of any kind whatsoever
(including but not limited to damage caused by leaks). Some states do
not allow the exclusion or, limitation of incidental or consequential
damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you.
- There shall be no implied warranties of merchantability
or fitness for any particular purpose beyond the term of this warranty
or beyond the term prescribed by the laws of the state in which the
panels are sold if that term is shorter than the term of this warranty.
Some states do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty
lasts, so the above limitations may not apply to you.
- No warranty shall apply to any Metro Roof Products
roofing panels modified, altered or changed in design or function after
it has left the factory, except when the alteration is required by the
manufacturers installation instructions. No warranty shall apply
if any warranty repair work, except temporary emergency repairs, is
done by any service or repair representative not approved by MRP.
- The replacement of any Metro Roof Products roofing
panel by MRP shall not extend the term of this warranty except as required
- This warranty gives the original purchaser of Metro
Roof Products roofing panels specific legal rights and you may also
have other rights under state or federal law.
- This warranty shall not be binding on MRP unless
the purchaser makes payment in full for the panels covered by this warranty.
- If any provision of this "limited warranty"
is held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, void or
unenforceable, the remaining provisions shall nevertheless continue
in full force with out being impaired or invalidated in any way.
