Warranty: A period of (1) year from date of installation for all shower enclosures installed by Lakeview Glass Inc. The warranty ensures you the client that Lakeview Glass Inc. will provide material necessary to fix, replace faulty hardware or re-adjust the shower enclosure. Warranty of any shower enclosure purchased through Lakeview Glass Inc. must have the warranty wording on a proposal or invoice, as there may be certain cases where warranty is unavailable due to the installation of a third party or the client. Warranty will be voided if the invoice is left with an unpaid balance and contract will be voided. Glass is excluded from this warranty, Lakeview Glass Inc. will not be held responsible for any glass breakage, chipping or explosion. Expansion or settling of new homes may be expected and may cause the need of an adjustment. In such cases Lakeview Glass will attempt to re-adjust the enclosure, polish up to a maximum tolerance of 1/8-inch. If the adjustment fails or polishing of the glass fails, then Lakeview Glass Inc. will not assume responsibility in replacing the glass pieces due to these being acts out of our control. Our warranty is offered only to the original purchaser, that is, the warranty may not be assigned or transferred to someone else, and it terminates upon sale of the home/building in which the product has been installed. We do require proof of ownership so it is very important to always request an invoice if one is not provided to you. Lakeview Glass Inc. is not liable for glass breakage, damage or failure due to misuse or acts of nature. This warranty is limited by the cost of the purchased shower enclosure and Lakeview Glass Inc. or its affiliates will not assume any responsibility beyond the cost of the original product. The warranty does not cover damage caused through faulty design of your residence or business, careless handling, alteration or misuse. Properly installed enclosures are still susceptible to leaking, often times when showerheads or sprays are angled towards door openings or if ledges or thresholds are not constructed with an angled pitch to allow water to run back into the shower area. Some water seepage will occur under certain conditions especially “frameless” shower doors. Buyer acknowledges that due to the composition and types of construction of walls or otherwise, the gaps or space left on the sides, top or bottom are unavoidable. Use of harsh, abnormal or abrasive chemical cleaning products will void the warranty; please follow guidelines provided for the proper maintenance of your product. Discoloration or stains due to improper water chemistry, hard, and non-filtered well-water are not covered under the warranty. Buyer acknowledges that solid brass finishes tarnish over time. Seller assumes no responsibility for repair or replacement of tarnished finishes on brass.
