All Warranties are made through distribution only. We do not process any warranty claims to the general public. If you have a product you believe to be under warranty and is defective you will need to contact the distributor that it was purchased through to process your warranty claim.
All Aluminum and Composite fixtures are warranted to be free from defects in workmanship and materials, as manufactured for a period of five (5) years. Aluminum products are not meant for use in caustic environments (Coastal or Inter-Coastal). Installation or use of aluminum products in caustic environments will void the warranty.
All Brass fixtures have a limited lifetime warranty. Brass products are designed to age and tarnish over time. Changes in the brass finish are natural and occur at varying rates depending on the climate, environment and the natural elements. UNVLS does not warrant that the product will not change in finish, and we cannot warrant that all the product will tarnish, patina, or age evenly or in the same manner as other products of the same material – we simply do not have any control over mother nature and the elements.
