The foregoing warranty is exclusive and in lieu of all other warranties, express or implied, including, but not limited to; any implied warranty of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose.  This warranty is applicable to the original owner, and on the building that the metal panels were installed.  This warranty is transferable under specific guidelines as delineated in writing from LifeTite Metal Products.  Transferability consideration requires a fee based professional inspection authorized by LifeTite Metal Products.  Deficiencies observed during such inspection will require correction prior to the execution of any warranty transfer, and shall be the exclusive responsibility of the owner or purchaser.

If a failure of the installed roof panels occur in whole or part without violating any exclusionary clauses within the (25) year warranty period LifeTite must be notified in writing within (60) days of the deficiency finding, and be provided with specific details and location of the defects.  LifeTite Metal Products or its delegated representative shall be given an adequate opportunity to examine the deficiencies, and be allowed reasonable time and methodology for resolution.  This may include the replacement of defective panel components.  Failure to provide such notice will void this warranty.
