LACAVA provides a Limited Lifetime Warranty on its faucetry. This warrants any faucet, installed in a residential application, to be free of defects in material and workmanship for as long as the original consumer owns his or her home. Any product installed in a commercial application is covered under warranty for one year. LACAVA warrants all other products to be free from any defects in materials or workmanship, during normal residential or commercial use including all hinges, drawer slides, finishes, and general workmanship of the item for a period of one year. LACAVA warranties do not cover normal wear and tear, damages due to negligence, faulty installation, improper alterations and repairs, improper cleaning and care, or damages due to uses of the product other than its intended and normal use. If a defect is found under normal use, while under warranty, LACAVA will repair or replace the product (whichever cost is smaller to LACAVA) at its own expense (excluding installation charges). Under no circumstances is LACAVA responsible for installation/service fees or any dollar amount beyond the cost of the item. In addition, all LACAVA products are to be installed by experienced professionals properly licensed and bonded; otherwise, any LACAVA warranty and liability is to be considered waived. All warranties are non-transferable and proof of purchase is required for any warranty claim.
In accordance with the laws of limitation and exclusion state by state, and therefore provided the duly exceptions, LACAVA will not be held liable, in any event, for any special, indirect, incidental or consequential damages or losses (including but not limited to damages for loss of business, loss of profits, etc.) for breach of contract, tort (including negligence), product liability or otherwise, even if it has been advised of the possibility of such damages. LACAVA’s liability on any claim (including negligence) will not in any case exceed the contract price paid by the original purchaser for the product claimed defective or unsuitable. It is the responsibility of the homeowner to ensure that all installed fixtures comply with all local plumbing codes.
Once the merchandise is released to and accepted by the carrier, ownership of the goods is transferred to buyer in all effects. LACAVA ships FOB Chicago and is not responsible for damages occurring in transit. After the merchandise is released and the shipping document is signed, it becomes the property of the purchaser. We constantly improve the packaging as new technologies become available, but damages in transit may still occur. Therefore, we recommend that all packages be inspected by the purchaser in the carrier's presence upon delivery. In case of damages, either visible or concealed, the purchaser is responsible for filing any damage claim against the carrier. In this regretful circumstance, we suggest utter diligence to have the carrier's agent explain the steps to submit a valid claim against the carrier, as each carrier has different claim policies. Please document everything in writing, preferably on the shipping documents and have also the carrier's agent sign along. If you wish that Lacava assists you in the claim process, please fax or email us copies of the shipping and claim documents at your earliest convenience. In case of missing items, which could occur due to our mistake or a theft during transit, please follow same procedures as for shipping damages above, with the only difference that the claim concerns something completely missing, rather than damaged. Please take note of any visible tampering with the packaging in the presence of the carrier's agent before accepting the delivery with your signature. In case of missing items, you must also inform LACAVA and send us all related documents within 24 hours from the delivery date. We will open an internal investigation and check the inventory count to determine whether it was our error. If we verify it was our mistake, we will promptly ship the missing item(s) to the purchaser by standard ground at our cost.
