This warranty applies only for the benefit of the person who, at the time of installation, owns the residential dwelling in which the product is installed (referred to as the owner).

A subsequent owner of that residential dwelling will not have the benefit of this warranty.

Nothing in this warranty is intended to have the effect of excluding, restricting or modifying the rights of the owner under the Act, except to the extent permitted by law, and the terms of this warranty shall be read as modified to the extent necessary to give effect to that intention.
Limitation of liability
To the extent permitted by law, the liability of AceDoors arising from any cause (whether in contract, tort, any enactment, or otherwise), including the negligence of AceDoors or any of its employees, contractors or agents, is limited to the price paid by the owner in relation to the specific product giving rise to the claim against AceDoors.
How to make a claim
The owner will need to provide the serial number of the door, date of manufacture, date of installation, address where the door was installed and the name of the approved distributor the product was purchased from. The owner is responsible for the cost of making a claim under this warranty.
