It is understood that fading or colour changes may not be uniform if the surfaces are not equally exposed to the sun and elements. The Products will resist wind uplift velocities up to one hundred and ninety-three (193) kilometers per hour or one hundred and twenty (120) miles per hour when installed in accordance with IRL’s recommended installation procedures.

The Owner must give IRL the first opportunity to inspect the Product and provide all reasonable access to complete any inspections and cure any nonconforming Product. If the nonconforming Product cannot be replaced with an IRL product, IRL may, at its sole discretion, replace the original product with a reasonably similar product. Any other costs and expenses incurred by the Owner will be the Original Owner’s responsibility. Any other costs and expenses beyond IRL’s responsibility set forth in this Warranty shall be the Owner’s responsibility.

TO REGISTER A CLAIM: Claims under this Warranty must be submitted in writing by registered mail to: Interlock Roofing Ltd. Attention: Guardian Warranty Claims, #200 – 1032 - 17th Avenue S.W., Calgary, Alberta, Canada T2T 0A5. The written statement should include the current owner’s name, address, telephone number, the Warranty Certificate No. and a description of the Nonconforming Product. Written notice of a Warranty claim must be provided to IRL within thirty (30) days of the alleged Product failure. You may be required to submit, at your expense, photographs or other evidence of the alleged failure and in the case of fading or chalking, you may be required to pay the costs of any colour testing if the colour loss proves to be within the measure units specified in this Warranty. This notice must be sent to IRL at the address set forth in this Warranty. In the event IRL is not notified within thirty (30) days following the alleged Product failure, IRL shall be relieved of all obligations hereunder.
IRL must be given reasonable opportunity and access to investigate all claims; travel and access charges may apply. The Owner or Transferee will be responsible for a minimum $300.00 inspection fee (made payable to Interlock Roofing Ltd.) for any visit or inspection by IRL that is not a valid product Warranty claim. Unwarranted inspections are costly and time consuming for both the homeowner and IRL. To ensure your claim is Warranty-based and not a home maintenance issue, IRL recommends that the homeowner routinely cleans the gutters and remove all branches and debris that are in contact with the roofing system. Home maintenance is always the responsibility of the homeowner. If IRL determines that a product Warranty claim exists, IRL will provide the coverage set forth in this Warranty.

A separate labor Warranty may be provided by the installation contractor.
