Section 5 – Terms and Conditions
Our warranty applies under normal weather conditions and is subject to the owner’s responsible care and routine maintenance of their shade sail.

Shade sails that are deemed to have received damage due to lack of regular maintenance may not be covered by our warranty. In no event does our warranty cover damage caused by fire, severe storms, hail and winds, contact with chemicals or abrasive substances, vandalism, damage caused by animals, neglect and lack of maintenance, damage caused by misuse of the product, tree and branch damage, or incorrect DIY installation.
Where a claim is made pursuant to our warranty, our company will, at its best discretion repair, refinish or replace with a similar product or refund the product. Only the failed product will be replaced, not the complete set. Our warranty includes but is not limited to the conditions above.
