Craftmade Brands uses the best weather resistant finishes; nevertheless, finishes for fixtures installed outdoors are subject to change due to prolonged exposure to sunlight, pollutants and other environmental conditions. Any claim for fading, discoloration or "patina" of a finish on an outdoor fixture is not applicable to the above warranty. See the "Finish Care & Cleaning" instructions below for proper care and maintenance of your fixture.
The environment within ten miles of a sea coast can be extremely corrosive. Even with the appropriate maintenance, products installed in this environment will typically deteriorate more than products installed in a less severe environment. Some corrosion and/or deterioration is considered "normal wear" in this environment. Any claim for finish failures or for corrosion of other components due to coastal environment conditions is not applicable to the above warranty.
We cannot warranty our Direct Burial Poles due to environmental issues such as moisture, soil acidity and other corrosive soil and air conditions.
Craftmade Brands strives to assure that glass and metal finishes shown in our catalogs match the actual product, but chemical finish variations and hand applied finishes can result in differences between the actual product and printed images.
Craftmade Brands does not authorize any person to create for it any obligation or liability in connection with its Products. The maximum liability is limited to the original purchase price of the product. No action arising out of any claimed breach of this warranty by Craftmade Brands may be brought by the Original User more than one (1) year after the cause of action has arisen.
IMPLIED WARRANTIES INCLUDING THAT OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE ARE EXPRESSLY LIMITED TO THE DURATION OF THIS WARRANTY. CRAFTMADE BRANDS AND/OR SELLER DISCLAIMS ANY LIABILITY FOR SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES.
This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights which vary from state to state. Some states do not allow limitations on incidental or consequential damages or how long an implied warranty lasts, so that the above limitations may not fully apply to you. Refer to your local laws for your specific rights under this warranty.
CARE & CLEANING: Initial care for finishes requires periodic cleaning with a soft cloth, dampened with water. A mild non-abrasive soap may be used along with a soft cloth and water if the fixture is very dirty. Particular care should be taken to avoid abrasive materials and strong cleaning agents as they will quickly destroy the protective coatings and subject the finish to oxidation and discoloration.
