Gutter Hood Warranty
Lifetime Material Warranty
American Rainware, Inc. warrants to the original consumer purchaser that the Gutter Hood products covered by these Warranties will be free of defects due to faulty material or workmanship for the lifetime of the original consumer purchaser of the Gutter Hood product, under normal use and maintenance, normal exposure to sunlight, temperature and other natural elements, and subject to the exceptions, limitations, disclaimers and other terms and conditions contained in these warranties.
American Rainware, Inc. warrants to the original consumer purchaser of the Gutter Hood products covered by this Performance Warranty, that Gutter Hood products will keep gutters freeflowing, subject to the exceptions, limitations, disclaimers and other terms and conditions contained in these Warranties. Freeflowing is hereby defined as the movement, or the act of flowing, rinsing or circulating of rainwater. Gutter Hood products are engineered to transfer all but inconsequential droplets of run-off water into the gutter when properly installed and maintained. It is the responsibility of the installing dealer to assure that the Gutter Hood system is performing as designed and has been properly attached to your home without damaging the integrity of the structure. Gutter Hood products may be installed over or under shingles according to factory specifications.
It is a requirement that gutters and downspouts be thoroughly cleaned, gutters properly aligned and sloped, and all downspout screens removed at the time of installation of the Gutter Hood system.
Any claim for performance failure or defects under this Warranty must be submitted to the installing dealer for service and resolution. All claims must be submitted within the Warranty period, promptly after discovery of the claimed defect, describing the defect claimed and referring to the date of installation and proof of purchase. Reasonable time should be allowed for inspection purposes. Any claim for defects in material under this Warranty must be submitted by registered mail, in writing, to American Rainware, Inc., 2737 Kentwood, Ave, Grandville, MI 49418. The obligation of American Rainware, Inc. under this Warranty shall be performed only by persons designated by American Rainware, Inc. for that purpose and is subject to all other provisions of this Warranty. If, after inspection, American Rainware, Inc. determines that the claim is valid in accordance with the terms of the Warranty, American Rainware, Inc. agrees, only and at its option, to repair, replace or refund the purchase price of the failing part of the Gutter Hood product.
If American Rainware, Inc., at its option, determines to replace the defective Gutter Hood products, and if the Gutter Hood product as originally installed is no longer available, American Rainware, Inc. shall have the right to substitute Gutter Hood product designated by it to be of equal quality. A color variance may occur between any new replacement product in comparison to the originally installed product due to weathering exposure and is not indicative of a defective product. If, at American Rainware, Inc.’s option, a purchase price refund is conveyed to the original consumer purchaser, all warranties are terminated, and repair, replacement or removal of the Gutter Hood product shall become the sole responsibility of the original consumer purchaser. Warranty service, and/or payment in lieu of service, may be affected by the occurrence of outstanding installation debt by the original consumer purchaser to the installing dealer. Service calls for non-warranty repair or adjustment may result in a service charge.
Exclusion to Warranties
These Warranties are granted to the original consumer purchaser only, cover only the manufacturing defects as specified herein, and terminate immediately upon the transfer of home ownership. American Rainware, Inc. does not warrant, and will not be responsible for any costs, defects or damages with respect to the installation, removal, repair, or re-installation of any Gutter Hood products or components. This Warranty does not cover any other damage or material failure including, but not limited to, damage caused by occurrences beyond the control of American Rainware, Inc., such as settlement of the building, failure of the structure (including foundations and walls), use of incompatible accessories, faulty or improper installation, any re-installation of the products, normal weathering, chemical pollutants, normal fading, fire, flood, lightning, windblown objects, earthquake, hurricanes, ice dams, icicles and/or ice storms, atmospheric conditions or weather of catastrophic nature as defined by the U.S. Weather Bureau, other acts of God, intentional acts, unreasonable use or failure to provide reasonable maintenance. The geographic location, the quality of the atmosphere and other local factors over which American Rainware, Inc. has no control, may contribute to the severity of these conditions. In regions where hardwood tree tassels and/or pine resin are prevalent in excessive amounts, the top surface of the Gutter Hood system must be periodically cleansed to prevent debris build-up and to maintain performance excellence. Painting the specially coated Gutter Hood product will void this Warranty. Adjustment or tampering with the custom engineered Gutter Hood system by unauthorized contractors (painters, roofers, etc.) or misalignment caused by ladders placed against gutters or Gutter Hood product will void these Warranties.

GUTTER HOOD System Maintenance Tips:
Alignment and spacing is critical for performance excellence. Never permit unauthorized contractors (painters, roofers, etc.) to adjust or tamper with the system, or allow ladders to come in contact with gutters or the Gutter Hood custom-engineered system.
Gutter Hood is designed to be a closed system. Water flows into the gutter at the pre-set gap along the gutter front but birds and animals are prevented from entering and obstructing water flow. If gaps, spacing, or misalignment allow birds or animals to enter the system, contact your installation dealer for service.
