Shoretex Boat Lift Canopy Warranty
Shoretex Replacement Boatlift Canopy Covers made from Shoretex materials are warrantied to the original purchaser, when utilized as a boatlift canopy and properly installed. They are warrantied to remain in good visual condition and maintain proper function for a minimum period of five years, without failure due to excessive fading or separation, subject to the following terms, provisions and conditions.
Shoretex's obligation under this warranty is limited to, at Shoretex's sole discretion, the repair or replacement of a product found on examination to be defective under normal use and service. Ordinarily Shoretex will repair the cover if such repair will allow the cover to return to functional use. If deemed necessary, canopies within the first two years after the date of manufacturer will be replaced without cost other than transportation expense. Should Shoretex Fabric choose to replace a canopy following the second year after the date of manufacture, Shoretex may charge the following costs: a) during the third year following date of manufacture, Shoretex may supply a replacement canopy at the then prevailing price, less a rebate of 60% of said price; b) during the fourth year following the date of manufacture, Shoretex may supply a replacement canopy at the then prevailing price, less a rebate of 40% of said price; c) during the fifth year following date of manufacture, Shoretex will supply a replacement canopy at the then prevailing price, less a rebate of 20% of said price. No rebate or replacement will be made on a warranty claim after the fifth year following the date of shipment.
This warranty will only cover canopies that have been properly installed on and seasonally removed from the boatlift frame. A canopy will not be deemed defective as a result of damage attributed to improper installation of the canopy cover, distortion of the frame upon which the canopy cover is mounted, a failure to seasonally remove and maintain the canopy, misuse, abuse, neglect, negligence, chemically induced degradation, fireworks, accidents or acts of God, including but not limited to excessive wind. Canopy fabrics will naturally fade and deteriorate over time with exposure to the sun, wind and other elements. A canopy will not be deemed to be defective as a result of normal wear and tear based on the conditions to which the canopy cover is exposed. Minor pinholes are to be expected, and will not be deemed a defect. Fading and deterioration of materials will be deemed a defect only if the fading or deterioration is in excess of industry accepted tolerances. Discoloration as a result of environmental pollution, cleaning or other chemicals, or a failure to properly clean, dry and store the canopy cover is not covered under this warranty.
This warranty is limited to Shoretex replacement boat lift canopies and is not transferable or assignable. It is the purchaser's responsibility to provide purchase documentation showing the date of purchase, purchase price and seller.
TO MAKE A WARRANTY CLAIM: Contact Shoretex Fabric for a Return Authorization number (RGA). Canopies will not be accepted without an authorized RGA. Next, return the cover to Shoretex Fabric, 1010 Weyrens Rd, Fergus Falls, MN. 56537. It is the buyer's responsibility to pay for shipping expenses.
The limited warranty set forth herein is in lieu of all other warranties expressed or implied. In no event shall Shoretex Fabric be liable for damage to a boat, the boatlift or any other incidental or consequential damages. The total liability of Shoretex Fabric shall be limited to the purchase price of the particular product regardless of whether damages are sought based on breach of warranty, breach of contract, negligence, strict liability, tort or any other legal theory.
