Awnings Warranty

Limited Warranty

This awnings warranty is extended to the original purchaser whose name appears on the sales order. Warranty is void once original purchaser transfers title of his home to another party.

1. Warranty

Classic Home Improvement Products (Classic) warrants, to the first Purchaser only, for our Awnings to be free from defective materials and workmanship, when properly maintained and under normal use and service, for a period of 5 years following installation. This warranty period of 5 years does not include the fabric, motor upgrade, electronics or powder coat finish. This warranty does not cover installation costs, removal costs, service call cost or shipping costs of any and all materials covered in the above limited warranties.

Classic does not directly warrant the fabrics, motors, electronics or powder coat finish used for such screens. Rather, all fabrics, motors, electronics and powder coat are warranted by the respective manufacturer and not directly by Classic. Classic will supply copies of such warranties upon request.

Somfy Motors (Motorization Feature)

Somfy Motors come with a 5-year limited warranty. The Somfy Motor supplied is to be free from defects in material and workmanship under normal proper use for a period of 5 years commencing with the date of installation/activation of the product. If the motor fails within this 5-year period, the Somfy Motor manufacturer will repair or replace it free of charge. Warranty is void if the electrical motor is exposed to water, affected by acts of God, or abnormal conditions; abuse, fire, misuse, negligence, modification, corrosive environments and/or vandalism. This warranty does not cover installation costs, removal costs, service call cost or shipping costs of any and all materials covered in the above limited warranties.

Somfy Remote Control (Motorization Feature)

Somfy Remote Controls (radio transmitters and receivers) come with a 1-year limited warranty. The Somfy Remote Control supplied is to be free from defects in material and workmanship under normal proper use for a period of 1 year commencing with the date of installation/activation of the product. If the Remote Control fails within this 1-year period, the Somfy manufacturer will repair or replace it free of charge. Warranty is void if the Remote Control is exposed to water, affected by acts of God, or abnormal conditions, abuse, fire, misuse, negligence, modification, corrosive environments and/or vandalism. This warranty does not cover installation costs, removal costs, service call cost or shipping costs of any and all materials covered in the above limited warranties.

Screen Mesh & Fabric Warranty

The typical warranty for Screen Mesh or Fabric is 5-10 years depending on the manufacturer. Please contact our office in regards to the material you desire and we will gladly provide you with the warranty information. Warranty is void if the material is affected by acts of God, or abnormal conditions; abuse, fire, misuse, negligence, modification, corrosive environments and/or vandalism. This warranty does not cover installation costs, removal costs, service call cost or shipping costs of any and all materials covered in the above limited warranties.

Powder Coat Finish

Powder coating is warranted for 2 years against excessive peeling only. This is completely done out of convenience from Classic. Every powder coater gives only a 30 day warranty against peeling because they do not know how it is treated. Once the powder coat is penetrated all warranties are void according to any powder coater, even on peeling which is why they only give 30 days but our company has extended it to 2 years from installation.  This warranty does not cover installation costs, removal costs, service call cost or shipping costs of any and all materials covered in the above limited warranties.
