Our commitment if a problem occurs

 

As soon as we are informed of the problem, we will send you a confirmation of the work to be done and this within 2 business days following your notification. If it is established that the product in question presents a defect that is not covered by the labour warranty, it is possible that we may demand inspection fees for visits done to the dwelling or building that appear to be necessary or that are requested by you.

Because the materials and fabrication methods can change, it is possible that the replacement parts are not aesthetically identical to the original. The replacement products and parts are covered until the end of the initial warranty of the original product, or over a period of 90 days, whichever is the longest.
