Conditions Not Covered By Warranty
This Warranty covers only the specified damages arising solely from defects in the manufacture of Westech fencing products. It does not provide protection against any failure, defect or damage caused by situations and events beyond normal exposure conditions, including, but not limited to: faulty or improper fabrication or installation; movement, distortion, collapse or settling of the ground or structure or failure of the structure (including foundations and walls) on which the products are installed; negligence, accidental or intentional acts of damage, misuse, abuse, improper or failure to provide reasonable and necessary care of the product; normal and uniform weathering of the surface, normal chalking, discoloration or fading due to exposure to sunlight, extremes of weather, mold, mildew, harmful chemicals, vapors or acid rain, or atmospheric pollution; impact of foreign objects, fire, wind, flood, lightning, earthquake, hail or other acts of God; or, the installation of accessory components or competitive products which are incompatible with Westech products. This Warranty covers only unpainted products and is void if any paint, stain, varnish, sealer or other finish has been applied to the products.
All products will experience some discoloration when exposed to the elements for a sustained period. Normal weathering occurs as exposure to ultraviolet light and extremes of weather and atmosphere causes any surface to experience gradual and uniform appearance changes such as chalking, fading, or accumulating dirt or stains. Degrees of weathering vary depending on geographical location, air pollution, exposure and other factors.Westech warrants that its products will “weather” in a uniform manner consistent with the weathering standards established in ASTM Specification F 964.Any weathering change that occurs on a specific exposed face of the product in a manner that varies from panel to panel producing an uneven look will be considered a defect. Color or gloss disparities arising from products having been installed in different years or involving the installation of accessories or competitive products which are incompatible with Westech products will not be considered a defect.
Westech’s ranch fencing profiles are engineered for superior durability and years of maintenance-free performance and are suitable for the containment of livestock. However, these products are not designed to withstand the physical abuse inflicted by aggressive or spirited animals determined to break through the fence. Products damaged by contained livestock will be evaluated for impact performance in compliance with the testing protocol set forth in ASTM Specification F 964, subsection 6.3. Products found to be in compliance with this performance standard will not be eligible for repair or replacement under this Warranty.d by individual homeowners as their residences, are warranted for fifty (50) years from the starting date of the original installation of the products.
