Exclusively for Registered Owners of EMCO Building Products, Inc. Brand Products
CONTINENTAL COATINGS, INC., STEEL SIDING, STEEL ROOFING AND STEEL ACCESSORIES
LIFETIME NON-PRORATED TRANSFERABLE LIMITED WARRANTY
(50 YEAR IF TRANSFERRED)
Subject to the limitations and exceptions set forth in this Limited Lifetime Warranty, the exterior seamless steel siding, steel roofing, and steel accessories are warranted by the paint manufacturer, Continental Coatings, Inc. (CCI), to the owner of the property on which the steel siding, roofing, and accessories (Products) are installed, against loss of adhesion, cracking, blistering, checking, chipping, peeling or flaking (slight cracking or crazing that may occur on roll-formed and brake press bends during fabrication are not considered a manufacturing defect).
This Limited Lifetime Warranty shall be effective, only upon registration, as set forth below, and shall remain in effect as long as the original homeowner(s) continue to own the property upon which the Products are installed. If the building is owned by a corporation, partnership, an unincorporated association, governmental entity, trust, church, school, or other artificial entity at the time of original installation, then the warranty duration shall be fifty (50) years from the date of original installation. This Warranty may be transferred to subsequent owners of the property, as set forth below, and upon transfer will become a fifty (50) year warranty from date of installation.
CCI warrants to the owner of the property on which the Products are installed, that the Product, after the removal or dirt and oxidation will not show color change color in excess of five (5) E units when calculated in accordance with ASTM D2244 for vertical installations and seven (7) E units for non-vertical installations for 50 years and seven (7) E Units and eight (8) E units respectively in the years thereafter. Color change is to be measured by comparing an unexposed retain panel to the exposed painted surface after removal of dirt and oxidation. It is understood that fading or color changes may not be uniform if the surfaces are not equally exposed to solar radiation and elements.
CCI warrants to the owner of the property on which the Products are installed that the Products will not chalk in excess of a numerical rating eight (8) for vertical and six (6) for non-vertical applications for the first fifty (50) years and six (6) and four (4) ratings respectively in the years thereafter when measured in accordance with the standard procedures specified in ASTM D-4214.
A color variation (except as otherwise specifically warranted) may occur between any new refinished or replacement panel in comparison to the originally installed panels due to weathering exposure and would not be indicative of defective Product. Normal surface weathering may cause any surface to oxidize, chalk, or accumulate surface dirt or stains due to varying exposures to sunlight, weather and atmospheric conditions. The geographical location, the quality of the atmosphere, and other local factors in the area, over which CCI has no control, will contribute to the severity of these conditions.
*Non-vertical application refers to any application that deviates fifteen (15) or more degrees from vertical.
LIMITATIONS AND EXCEPTIONS:
THIS LIMITED LIFETIME WARRANTY is restricted to coating failures resulting only from natural weathering and will not cover damage or failure of product attributable to:
a. Acts of God, falling objects, fire, explosions, external forces or any similar or dissimilar physical damages.
b. Exposure to aggressive, corrosive, or other harmful fumes or atmospheric conditions.
c. Standing water or extended salt spray exposure.
d. Storage or installation that allows contact with animals and/or animal waste.
e. Improper cleaning or installation maintenance.
f. Storage or installation of product within 1500 feet of seashores.
g. Improper packaging, handling, shipping processing, or installation.
The homeowner must comply with the required warranty registration of the Products as explained below. There is no warranty in existence if there is a failure to register. Homeowner agrees to provide access to Products for inspection as requested and to assist as necessary in providing information on product failure. Claims under this warranty must be submitted in writing within forty-five (45) days of discovery of the warranted performance failure and CCI requires the opportunity for site inspection and investigation. CCI has the sole right to evaluate and determine its obligations under the terms and conditions of this Limited Lifetime Warranty. CCI's sole liability and responsibility is only for the direct cost of refinishing or replacing the failed Product. CCI reserves the right to approve whether refinishing or replacement is appropriate and the selection of a qualified refinishing or replacement contractor.
Except as otherwise warranted, CCI shall have no obligation to replace non-defective panels as part of repair, refinishing, or replacement of defective panels due to color variations due either to weathering or a change in the manufacturing process. CCI reserves the right to discontinue or change any Products as manufactured. If the Products originally installed are not available and CCI determines to replace the defective siding panels, CCI shall have the right to substitute Products of equal quality.
Warranty for any refinished or replaced Product shall be only for the remainder of the warranty period applicable to the original coated Product. In no event shall CCI be liable under any theory of recovery for any direct, special, punitive, incidental, or consequential damages in any way resulting from the purchase of a coated Product or from any possession, use and/or installation of the coated Products.
ANY REPAIR OF THE PRODUCTS UNDERTAKEN WITHOUT PRIOR WRITTEN AUTHORIZATION FROM CONTINENTAL COATINGS, INC. WILL VOID THIS WARRANTY.

For mildew accumulation, which can occur on surfaces of all types (normally appearing as black spots), remove by using cleaning method for moderately dirty atmospheres and basic solution of the following ingredients.
a. 1/3 cup detergent (Tide®)
b. 2/3 cup trisodium phosphate (Soilex® or Spic-and-Span®)
c. 1 quart sodium hypochlorite 5% solution (Clorox®)
d. 3 quarts water
STRONGER CONCENTRATIONS OF CLEANERS MAY CAUSE DAMAGE TO THE FINISH. IMMEDIATELY AFTER WASHING WITH DETERGENT OR OTHER CLEANERS, RINSE ALL SURFACES THOROUGHLY WITH A GARDEN HOSE.
