The terms of this Guarantee are in addition to and do not affect your statutory rights.

Guarantee

Subject to the terms of this Guarantee, EUROCELL HOME guarantees the products against product failure or manufacturing defects as follows:

10 years from the date of delivery (for supply-only) / completed installation:

Frames - Products that are PVC-U profiles and PVC-U fittings will not crack or warp. Exposure to normal weathering will not result in any significant part of the products compromising the profiles or fittings resulting in a change of colour from the EUROCELL HOME relevant colour specification.

5 years from the date of delivery (for supply-only) / completed installation:

Glazing Units - Subject to the door and or window being maintained in accordance with any guidance provided by EUROCELL HOME. Excludes obstruction of vision arising from moisture, condensation or deterioration of the exterior surfaces of the sealed glazing unit

3 years from the date of delivery (for supply-only) / completed installation:

Hardware – Subject to maintenance being carried out in accordance with the guidance provided by EUROCELL HOME. Hardware includes hinges, handles, letterboxes, locks and similar items used on our products.

Should any fault in the product appear within the relevant guarantee period, we will only replace the faulty parts on a like-for-like basis. For example, if an external handle becomes defective, we will look to replace only the external handle and not both internal and external handles.

If we cannot source a suitably compatible replacement, then we may consider offering a full replacement item. The replacement item will be offered on a like-for-like cost basis but if you choose to change any specification and/or upgrade the replacement product, this will incur an additional cost which will be payable by you prior to despatch of the replacement product.

This Guarantee relates to our products as opposed to being personal to the original purchaser of the products. Products repaired or replaced by EUROCELL HOME under this Guarantee shall be guaranteed for the remainder of the original guarantee period as stated above. By way of illustration if a frame is replaced after 3 years, the replacement frame will be guaranteed for 7 further years (making 10 years in total).

  • any colour change or other change in appearance between different sides or orientations;
  • any risks actually or usually insured against by a homeowner, including lightning, wind, fire and flood;

How to make a claim under this Guarantee

You should send a written notice to EUROCELL HOME at Fairbrook House, Clover Nook Road, Alfreton, Derbyshire, DE55 4RF or send an email to [email protected] as soon as possible after discovering a failure or defect, and in any event within 30 days.

You agree to give us a reasonable period of time to repair or replace the defective products and in the first instance we may need an opportunity to inspect them. We expect to be able to conduct an inspection within 30 days of you notifying us of an issue. The inspection will be conducted by us or someone acting on our behalf.

If possible, we will rectify the fault on the same day, however if parts need to be ordered, then a subsequent visit maybe required.If, following a reasonable number of visits, EUROCELL HOME conclude the fault cannot be satisfactorily rectified, then a full replacement product may be offered. Please be aware that if a ‘different’ fault, unrelated to the original fault is reported, this will be treated as a separate issue, but also subject to the terms of this Guarantee.

In the event where the product is no longer available you will be provided with a product of similar specification and value to that originally purchased. If you choose to change any specification and/or upgrade the replacement product, this will incur an additional cost which will be payable by you prior to dispatch of the replacement product.

In the unlikely event that we cannot repair or replace the product, a refund of the original purchase price will be given.

Where applicable, we will only replace the products that we consider to be defective and covered by this Guarantee, which may be fewer than the total number of products originally purchased.
