Guarantee offered by Colourchange UPVC

Our guarantee offers up to 10 years cover on your purchase; the length of the cover depends on the product.

Frames are normally 10 years, glass is 5 years, hardware is typically 12 months.

The term and level of cover is dependent on the manufacturer that produces the items used for your installation. From experience we know that manufacturers change the level of cover offered which is why they are not all detailed in this document. Whilst we typically use the same suppliers for many products and are familiar with the terms offered, individual orders may come from specialist manufacturers to meet specific customer requirements. Details of the specific cover can be provided.

Should there be a need for you to claim against the guarantee we will be required to inspect the product to ensure that it has been maintained correctly. Manufacturers will cover claims that relate to defects in materials or manufacture.

The guarantee only comes into effect when the contract price is paid in full. The warranty will be invalidated if any of the products supplied are misused, damaged, rendered inoperative, neglected, dismantled by the owner or any unauthorised person, altered from the original specifications, or maintained in a manner other than set out in the attached Maintenance Guidelines below.

Maintenance guidelines:

The following maintenance procedures must be complied with to ensure that the guarantee is not invalidated.
