50-YEAR TRANSFERABLE LIMITED WARRANTY, LIMITATIONS ON THE TRANSFERABILITY OF THIS WARRANTY ARE SET FORTH HEREIN.
Thank you for your recent purchase of Tylest™ by USA STONES CORP manufactured stone veneer products (“Product(s)”). This express limited warranty (“Warranty”) only covers Masonry Veneer products manufactured by Tylest™ (“Tylest”).
WHO IS COVERED & FOR HOW LONG
Subject to the following terms, Tylest warrants its Products for fifty (50) years to the original purchaser (the “Purchaser”) (based upon the date of retail purchase, date of substantial completion of the installation if professionally installed, or date of settlement of the purchase of a newly constructed building, whichever is applicable). This Warranty is personal to you; however, the Warranty may be transferred to any subsequent purchaser(s) of your home or building during the first fifteen (15) years after the original purchase date (as described above), but the warranty period as to such subsequent owners is limited to fifteen (15) years from the original purchase date (as described above).
WHAT TYLEST WARRANTS
Tylest, subject to the conditions and limitations listed herein, warrants its Products to be manufactured in compliance with the International Code Council Acceptance Criteria 51 (“ICC AC 51) for Precast Stone Veneer; however, Products that are accessories and Products that are not wall veneer shall not meet the weight, density and dimension parameters of ICC AC 51.
WHAT IS NOT COVERED
We do not cover damage to the Product due to any cause not expressly covered herein. This Warranty does not cover any problems with non-defective material caused by conditions or handling beyond our control. Some examples of conditions not covered by this Warranty include:
1. Improper application, use of accessories which do not properly receive and/or secure our Products, or installation not in strict adherence to the applicable installation instructions or installation not in accordance with local building code requirements.
2. Damage resulting from accident, misuse, neglect, casualty, fi re, vandalism, plant growth, impact of foreign objects, salt or de-icing chemicals, excessive exposure to water due to things such as standing water, water backups, improper flashing, leaks, seepage or irrigation systems, failure of or damage to the wall substrate on which the Product was applied caused by movement, distortion, cracking, or settling of such wall or the foundation of the building, surface discoloration due to airborne stains, pollutants, algae, fungi, lichens or cyanobacteria, exposure to harmful chemicals, external heat sources (including, but not limited to, a barbecue grill, fire, or reflection from windows and doors), acts of God, or other such occurrences beyond the control of Tylest.
3. Product or material that has been painted, varnished, sealed with non-breathable sealer, or similarly coated over the manufacturer’s original finish; and
4. The use of sandblasting, power washing, silicone treatments, or any other form of chemical wash. Products shall not be in breach of this Warranty if they contain or exhibit (i) minor chipping, as defined under ASTM C1364, Section 8.2; or (ii) minor cracks, as defined under ASTM C 90-05, Section 7.2.1, incidental to the usual methods or materials of manufacture or minor chipping resulting from customary methods of handling in shipment and delivery which do not affect the proper placement of the unit or significantly impair the strength or permanence of the construction.
Products are not warranted against discoloration caused by air pollution, exposure to harmful chemicals, or “normal weathering” resulting from exposure to the elements. “Normal weathering” is defined as the damaging effects of sunlight and extremes of weather and atmosphere that may cause any colored surface to oxidize, fade, or become soiled or stained over time.
Tylest strives to accurately reproduce the colors of its masonry stone veneer Products in its marketing literature and sample boards. The Product colors that you see are as accurate as technology allows. Tylest makes no warranty with respect to any real or perceived color differences between those depicted in its marketing literature and sample boards and those of the actual Products that will be installed on or within the home or building. Tylest recommends that you look at actual Product samples before making a color selection for your home or building. 50-YEAR TRANSFERABLE LIMITED WARRANTY 1.678.599.3138 | tylest.com ©2018 Tylest Masonry Veneer™.
