This warranty is separate from, and in addition to, VELUX limited specific product warranty on the Covered Products.

For a period of ten (10) years from the date of original purchase of a Covered Product, VELUX warrants that no water will leak through the installed Covered Product or between the installed Covered Product and the roof deck, provided that the Covered Product is installed strictly in accordance with VELUX deck or curb mounted skylight and related flashing installation instructions. If there is any water leakage through the installed Covered Product or between the installed Covered Product and the roof deck during the warranty period, VELUX will, at its option: (i) repair or

reinstall the Covered Product at its cost and expense; (ii) remove the Covered Product and install in its place a VELUX product of the same or similar model; or (iii) reimburse the original end-user (a) the reasonable cost of one (1) reinstallation of the Covered Product not to exceed $1,000.00.

If the date of original purchase cannot be established, the ten (10) year warranty period shall be deemed to begin on the date of manufacture as indicated on the Covered

Product. Any reinstallation or replacement of a Covered

Product shall not extend the original warranty period provided herein.

How to obtain warranty protection

If you have concerns with your VELUX skylight installation, please contact your builder, remodeler or installer, who should inspect the skylight and installation to verify that installation is according to our instructions.

We find most of the concerns by consumers are resolved in this step.

If there is still a concern, have the builder, remodeler or installer contact VELUX customer service department directly at:

VELUX America LLC

PO Box 5001 • Greenwood, SC 29648-5001

Tel 1-800-88-VELUX • [email protected]

So that VELUX can provide the best response possible, please include the following information when contacting us:

• Your name, address, and phone number.

• A description of the product and the product model number (located on the identification label attached to each product).

• A description of the product concern.

• Details of attempts to address concern.

A trained customer service team member will work to solve your concern over the phone. In many cases, we solve concerns over the phone without the inconvenience of an on-site visit.

It is the responsibility of the end user to mitigate and minimize water damage or any other damage that a

Covered Product may cause.

What is not covered

The end-user is responsible for a one-time service inspection fee at current published rates if, after a complaint of leakage, a VELUX-authorized technician determines that the Covered

Product was not installed strictly in accordance with VELUX deck mounted skylight and related flashing installation instructions or if the water penetration is not related to the skylight installation.

“Leak” within the meaning of this warranty requires the penetration of water in liquid form through or between the Covered Product (skylight) and roof deck caused by the installation of the Covered Product in accordance with

VELUX deck or curb mounted skylight and related flashing installation instructions. Condensation on a Covered

Product, which may occur as a natural result of humidity within a building or a variation between indoor and outdoor temperatures, is not a “leak,” is not covered by this warranty and is specifically excluded.

This warranty does not cover, and specifically excludes, any leaks to a Covered Product due to any of the following: reroofing without re-wrapping using VELUX adhesive skylight underlayment and VELUX approved and related flashing, a venting Covered Product left open during rain or other forms of precipitation, moisture penetration at seams in the roof deck, incorrect installation of the product, rough opening sizes other than those called out in VELUX deck mounted skylight installation instructions, improper maintenance of the product or installation, accidents including but not limited to accidental glass breakage, abuse, misuse, faulty building construction or design, acts of God, products subject to conditions outside their design limitations, corrosive environmental factors including chlorine and acid rain, or any other factor unrelated to the original installation of the Covered Product.

In cases of extreme snow or large roof areas above the skylight, a water diverter should be considered. A water diverter is required for roof pitches from 45˚ to 60˚ utilizing ECL flashings. Refer to related skylight and flashing instruction manuals for proper installation. In case of flood and water overflowing the roof or skylight, this is considered acts of God and is not covered by our warranties.

FCM, VCM and VCE are installed with site built curbs, these need to be built and installed according to our curb mounted skylight installation instructions. If these skylight curbs are not built according to our instructions, with an outside curb dimension matching the skylight, secured properly to the roof deck or curb, use of adhesive underlayment and the use of related VELUX flashings, warranty may not be valid.

Warranty claim procedure

Thank you for reviewing the VELUX America Inc. warranty procedure. It is our desire to handle any concerns on a

VELUX product or installation in an efficient manner. To assist you in the process we have set up the following procedure to guide our valuable customers.

With 70 years of experience producing skylights, we have found that the most frequent problem regarding product concerns relates to proper installation. Thus, the first step of the warranty procedure is to verify with your builder, installer or remodeler that the installation of your VELUX product was completed according to the relevant VELUX instructions, thus:

If you have concerns with your VELUX product or installation, please contact your builder, remodeler or installer, who should inspect the product and installation to verify that installation is according to our instructions.

We find that most of the concerns by consumers are resolved in this step.

(if necessary)

If there is a concern following Step 1, have the builder, remodeler or installer contact VELUX customer service department directly at:

VELUX America LLC

PO Box 5001 • Greenwood, SC 29648-5001

Tel 1-800-88-VELUX • [email protected]

So that VELUX can provide the best response possible, please include the following information when contacting us:

• Your name, address, and phone number.

• A description of the product and the product model number (located on the identification label attached to each product).

• A description of the product concern.

• Details of attempts to address concern.

Once you have contacted VELUX customer service department, you may be asked to complete a product information form. The form will be emailed or faxed and helps expedite your service request.

Upon completion of the product information form, the call is escalated to our technical service department. This department is comprised of technical experts with years of experience handling product and installation concerns. Our technical service department will try to resolve your issue over the phone or provide parts as outlined in our limited warranty. Additional product installation information may be requested before proceeding further.

If our technical service department cannot solve the concern, a VELUX Solutions service contractor will schedule an appointment for an on-site visit. We do request the builder, remodeler or installer also join us on this call. This contractor will evaluate the problem and provide either on-site repair or a plan for resolution. In some cases the resolution involves the builder, installer or remodeler re-installing the product in accordance with our installation procedures. Please note that if it is determined on an on-site visit that the installing contractor incorrectly installed the VELUX product, then an on-site service visit fee will be charged. Thus, Step 1 of this procedure is critical.

In some cases the solution can only be determined by an on-site visit. In these cases additional spare parts may need to be ordered from our factory and a followup on-site visit may be necessary.

VELUX may, in its sole discretion, amend or revise this warranty. Please go to www.veluxusa.com/warranty for VELUX most updated warranty claim procedure information.

Thank you in advance for purchasing VELUX products.

We want you to know that the overwhelming majority of VELUX customers never need to involve themselves in this process but we hope this overview helps you understand how we would solve a concern regarding an installed VELUX product.
