Any claims for defect under this Warranty should be submitted in writing promptly after discovery to the
contractor who installed the Hy-Lite product. Allow a reasonable time for inspection.
This Warranty is limited to Hy-Lite, at its option, repairing and/or replacing defective parts (color matching

purposes or rental properties such as schools, churches, apartment complexes, government owned
structures, office buildings, etc., the Warranty applies for ten (10) years under normal use and service and

Other Warranty Considerations
On some window installations, caulking is used to seal the frames or trim package against water or air
penetration. This caulking is applied when the window is installed and is not related to Hy-Lite's synthetic
caulking compound that is applied to the acrylic blocks during the manufacturing process. Therefore,
caulking used in the installation of the window is not considered a part of the Hy-Lite product, and therefore,
is not covered under this Warranty. Caulking is normally considered a maintenance responsibility of the
This Warranty is valid only if products manufactured by or approved by Hy-Lite are used, but shall be void if
accessory products not manufactured or approved by Hy-Lite are installed which cause defects to occur in
the Hy-Lite products.
The warranty statements contained in this certificate set forth the only express warranties extended by Hy-Lite products, and the provisions hereof shall constitute the purchaser's exclusive remedy for breach of this
Warranty given under this certificate. Hy-Lite shall not be liable to property owner for incidental or
consequential damages for breach of any written or implied warranty on the Hy-Lite products.
Some states do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, or the exclusion or limitations of
incidental or consequential damages, so that the above limitation or exclusion may not apply.
This Limited Warranty gives specific legal rights. There may be other rights which may vary from state to
