Sun Windows, Inc. provides this Limited Warranty to cover Sun Patriot Residential window and door products sold and installed in the United States of America. This warranty extends to the owner of the structure in which the products are originally installed and is fully transferable.

Glass Components

The insulated glass warranty applies to factory installed insulated glass or Sun supplied insulated glass that is installed by a Sun authorized service representative. Sun's insulated glass is warranted against obstruction of view caused by a failure of the insulated glass seal for twenty (20) years. Sun warrants our insulated glass units against spontaneous glass breakage for a period of one (1) year. Spontaneous glass breakage occurs when the glass develops a crack without the sign of an impact.

Exterior Finish

The Sun Patriot clad exterior aluminum components have (unless specified otherwise) a high performance Powder Coated finish. Sun's standard D2000 finish meets AAMA 2604 specifications and is warranted for twenty (20) years against peeling, flaking, blistering, cracking, checking and loss of adhesion. These are measured in accordance to the AAMA 2604 specification standard and are for normal atmospheric conditions. Sun's optional D3000 finish meets AAMA 2605 specifications and is warranted for thirty (30) years against peeling, flaking, blistering, cracking, checking and loss of adhesion.These are measured in accordance to the AAMA 2605 specification standard and are for normal atmospheric conditions. Color fading is a natural occurrence and is not covered by any warranty.

Interior Finish

When selected as an option, the factory applied film/finish on vinyl interior is warranted for two (2) years against delamination. Color fading is a natural occurrence and is not covered by any warranty.

Vinyl Sash and Frame

Sun warrants for a period of 2 years from the date of original product purchase the quality of workmanship and materials of vinyl sash and frame components shall be free from defects, which might render the product unusable. Sun will replace or repair (at its discretion) any product, which may be defective and will do so in the same state as originally furnished (refinishing or repainting is the responsibility of the consumer). All products should be thoroughly inspected for damage or defects when the products are received and before installation and finishing. Sun should be promptly notified of any item that is deemed unsatisfactory when it is received.

Attention: Vinyl products and components should not be painted. Painting vinyl surfaces can result in the failure or the product. Do not paint vinyl windows or components.

Operating Hardware

All non-electric operating hardware, including sash locks & keepers, finger tilt latches, balance systems, crank operators, hinge and glide systems, door handle sets and hinges, and multi-point latching systems are warranted to operate properly in support of the product’s function for a period of ten (10) years from the original date of purchase. Note: some hardware finishes are prone to wear and weathering and will fade or change over time. This is considered a normal cosmetic effect and is not covered by this warranty (see the Exclusions section). Weather stripping is warranted to function correctly for a period of ten (10) years from the original date of purchase. Electric operating hardware is warranted for a period of one (1) year from the original date of purchase.
