Wholesale Iron Doors Warranty

Rev: January 20, 2024

YOU MUST READ AND UNDERSTAND THIS WARRANTY BEFORE COMPLETING YOUR PURCHASE

Our warranty is rooted in two basic beliefs:

  1. Our customers must receive the products and/or services they purchased, without exception.
  2. If a customer does not receive what they purchased, we will ensure they are made whole through one or both of the following methods (and we reserve the sole right to select the method):
    1. We will correct, improve, repair, deliver, or otherwise provide the products and services that the customer purchased. This is almost always the first and best choice.
    2. We will provide a refund to the customer commensurate with the shortfalls in the products and/or services they received. This is rare and is only appropriate if we are unable to provide the products and/or services originally paid for.

Our warranty has two sections. The first section is the process that we require our customers follow when receiving products purchased from us for our warranty to remain valid. If something is truly amiss, following this process will allow us to process your warranty claim efficiently and remedy the issue. If this process is not followed, our warranty will be voided except for the aspects that are stated below to specifically survive the product receipt and installation process. The second section contains the terms and conditions of our warranty. Our warranty is written clearly, in plain English, with no legalese. Our warranty is simple, transparent, and mostly common-sense. As such, we do not deviate from our warranty.

REQUIRED PRODUCT RECEIPT PROCESS

The required product receipt process is designed to protect both you and Wholesale Iron Doors by removing any doubt or ambiguity from the product acceptance process. If the required product receipt process is not followed, this warranty is void and any action taken to repair damage to products is at the full discretion of Wholesale Iron Doors, with no obligation to perform.

  1. Take two (2) clear pictures of each shipping crate that your doors or windows arrived in before opening the crates, each picture from an opposite angle of the crate. This will allow us to easily submit a claim to the shipping company if damage occurred in transit. If there is visible damage to the packaging and shipping materials, do not accept the shipment.
  2. If you are going to store products for later installation, store the crate under cover, away from exposure to rain or any other sources of water.
  3. When you are ready to install the products, lay each crate on the ground and remove the front panel of the crate that is facing upward. Take at least one (1) picture that captures the entire door or window to document overall arrival conditions.
  4. Examine the door or window while it is still laying in the crate and take clear pictures of any unexpected damage to the door. IF THERE IS UNEXPECTED DAMAGE, STOP NOW AND SUBMIT THE PICTURES TO SUPPORT@WHOLESALEIRONDOORS.COM AND CALL YOUR SALES REPRESENTATIVE. DO NOT INSTALL PRODUCTS WITH DAMAGE OR THE WARRANTY WILL BE VOID.
  5. With proper assistance from other able-bodied individuals, stand the door or window up in the crate and examine the side the of the door or window that was previously facing downward. Take at least one (1) picture that captures the entire door or window to document overall arrival conditions.
  6. Examine the side of the door that was previously facing downward while it is standing in the crate and take clear pictures of any unexpected damage to the door or window. IF THERE IS UNEXPECTED DAMAGE, STOP NOW AND SUBMIT THE PICTURES TO SUPPORT@WHOLESALEIRONDOORS.COM AND CALL YOUR SALES REPRESENTATIVE. DO NOT INSTALL PRODUCTS WITH DAMAGE OR THE WARRANTY WILL BE VOID.
  7. If the door or window has any unexpected damage, submit all pictures taken in the steps above to SUPPORT@WHOLESALEIRONDOORS.COM and call your sales representative to explain the damage. We will review your submission and will contact you with next steps (typically within one business day). Do not install damaged products before speaking with us, as installation voids our warranty.
  8. If there is no unexpected damage, go ahead and have your door or window installed by a professional installer with experience installing the type of product you purchased.

GENERAL WARRANTY TERMS

  • If a valid warranty claim requires that a door or window be repaired or modified in some way by us, we will take that door or window back to our production facility to complete the repair. While the door or window is being repaired, you may request a dunnage door from us at no cost to seal the opening. We will replace the repaired door or window in the opening when the repair work is complete.
  • All doors and windows are pre-hung and tested for proper closure prior to shipping. If a door you purchased does not close properly after installation, it is an installation error and is not covered by this warranty. Doors and windows are installed very differently from each other, and from other types of building materials. We always suggest that our customers enlist a professional door and window installer for their project.
  • We do not provide installation guidance. Please work with a professional installer with experience installing the products you have purchased.
  • We do not provide installation support. All issues related to door reveal, handling, or damage caused during install will not be covered by our warranty.
  • Door measurements are exactly as described in each item’s final approved CAD drawing. We do not provide refunds or allow returns if a door is manufactured to your approved specifications but is not appropriate for your project. We suggest enlisting a professional installer to guide you through this process.
  • Water intrusion under door thresholds and around door seals due to flooding or weather conditions is unavoidable when such conditions exist and are not covered by this warranty.
  • This warranty will not cover damage to products resulting from cleaning using harsh solvents. Never use harsh solvents or cleaning tools to clean your products.
  • If you elect to have us store your doors for a period of time prior to delivery or pickup:
    • The first 30 days of storage following the original delivery/pickup date you requested during the sales process are complimentary.
    • After the 30-day complimentary storage period following the original delivery/pickup date you requested, you will be asked to pay a storage fee of $100 per product per month until the product is delivered or picked up. A “Product” for this fee is defined as any door unit (single or double), window unit, or other discrete item that was purchased by you and is larger than one cubic foot. The storage fee will be pro-rated for any partial months.
    • All warranty-related timelines will begin the day storage commences. We DO NOT provide climate controlled storage, and we will not inspect your products while they are stored with us. If you elect to store products with us, it will be treated as though the product was delivered to you and that you separately contracted with us for temporary storage. As such, you store your products with us at your own risk, storing products with us does not extend our warranty, and you are 100% responsible for your products while stored with us.
  • Any modifications to doors or windows (such as cutting, welding, glass replacement, hinge modifications, etc.) that are performed without prior authorization by Wholesale Iron Doors immediately void all warranties provided by Wholesale Iron Doors.
  • Warranty terms are described below. Once any product is installed, all cosmetic warranties are void.
  • For the purposes of this warranty, “date of purchase” is defined as the earliest date on which any of the following occur:
    • A deposit is paid to us for a product.
    • A product is purchased from us and paid in full.
    • A sales order is signed by you or on your behalf by a representative that you designate.
    • A made-to-order product is added to our production schedule or ordered by us from a supplier at your request.

PRODUCT/SERVICE-SPECIFIC WARRANTY TERMS

  • Iron and Steel Doors and Windows:
    • We provide a three-year manufacturing quality warranty from the date of purchase.
      • Under this warranty, the following are covered for three years from the date of purchase:
        • Overall structural integrity
        • Proper mechanical function
        • Weld integrity
        • Hinge integrity
      • Under this warranty, the following are NOT covered:
        • Damage caused during installation
        • Damage caused by misuse
        • Cracks, scratches, or damage to glass during or after installation
        • Any cosmetic issues
      • We warranty our Insulated Glass Units (IGU) against defective materials and workmanship that results in visible fogging or moisture residue formation on the internal glass surfaces due to seal failure under normal conditions. This warranty will cover both parts and labor for the first year after delivery and parts only (IGU and glazing bead) for an additional four years.
        • Seal migration, or the movement of the seal beyond the sightline of the glazing bead, without visible moisture or fogging between the glass surfaces does not constitute seal failure. However, seal migration greater than 3/4” beyond the sightline of the glazing bead or where light can be seen between the seal and the glazing bead will be considered seal failure and warranted as such.
        • Our warranty does not cover damage caused by or resulting from improper installation by a non-Stately installer, improper cleaning and maintenance, damage, breaks, cracks, chipping or scratches incurred after delivery.
      • We provide a warranty against cosmetic defects for 14 days from your receipt of the product or until the time of installation, whichever comes first.
        • Under this warranty, the following are covered for 14 days you’re your receipt of the product or until installation, whichever comes first:
          • Large scratches or gouges in the door finish that have rusted prior to opening the crate
          • Large scratches or dirt in the glass that are visible when standing ten (10) feet from the door.
          • Flaking of the door finish greater than one-half (1/2) inch in diameter that exposes raw steel and cannot easily be touched up.
        • Under this warranty, the following are NOT covered:
          • Any scratches in the door finish that are not distinguishable when standing ten (10) feet from the door.
          • Any damage caused to the door by water exposure after purchase.
          • Damaged caused by improper handling of the door prior to or during installation.
          • Bending of door components or damage to finish resulting from overtightening of screws (always hand-tighten screws and do not use power tools).
        • It is common for iron and steel doors and windows to need some level of minor touch up after installation. Your installer should be aware of this and be equipped to apply the appropriate touch up paint to your products after installation. As such, minor nicks and scratches that can be easily touched up are not covered under our warranty.
        • If you discover cosmetic damage to your door that is not minor, you must photograph the damage and provide us with a description of the damage in the photographs within 14 days of your receipt of the product and before installing the door as described in the process above. At that point we will review the damage and get in touch with you to discuss next steps. Do not install the door during this period of time. Any damage to a door that is reported to us after installation and without giving us the opportunity to remedy the situation will be assumed to have occurred during the installation process and will not be covered by our warranty.
        • Most iron doors are shipped in a crate without the handles installed. The open boreholes leave the spray-foam interior of the door exposed. If water gets inside the door through the borehole before hardware is installed, the subsequent evaporation of that water can cause the door to “sweat” from the inside out, bubbling through the paint and causing cosmetic damage. It is imperative that the doors are not exposed to any amount of water until they are completely assembled.
        • All iron and steel doors and windows are hand-finished, and slight variances in color, texture, and finish between doors and samples are not cosmetic defects.
        • Sweating doors due to temperature fluctuations is not a defect and is not covered under this warranty. If you live in a climate that experiences significant temperature conditions over time and when moving from outdoors to indoors, please speak with your sales representative about purchasing our “thermally broken” products that are specifically designed for these conditions.
        • When raw metal is exposed to water, it will rust. If any part of your iron product finish is damaged and raw metal is exposed to the elements, repair the damage with touch-up paint immediately. We will not be responsible for rusting due to finish damage exposing raw metal after installation.
      • Glass
        • Any issues with fogging, smudging, smearing, dirt, or dust on glass must be photographed and disclosed prior to installation and prior to finishing. It is very common for sloppy finish work to smear on glass and become near impossible to take off. This is not a glass issue, this is a finish issue and will not be covered by our warranty.
        • We offer both clear and textured glass options in our products. All glass begins as clear flat glass. Textured glass is created by heating clear glass and manipulating the heated glass with stamps, rollers, or other methods to create different textures such as Flemish, rain, and water cube. The process of heating and stretching, compressing, or manipulating clear glass can result in changes in the opacity of different sections of the glass. It may also cause a rippling effect along certain areas of the glass that were manipulated. These features are to be expected in textured glass and are not considered defects and are not covered by this warranty. Fingerprints and visible dirt, grime, or foreign objects inside the glass are warrantied as described below. If you desire glass without any perceptible flaws, we suggest opting for clear glass, as textured glass is intentionally “imperfect”. Please ask your salesperson for details if you have specific questions about glass.
        • Cracked or broken glass or damage to the product resulting from accident, abusive handling or misuse, or shattering due to heat build-up are not covered by this warranty.
        • We don’t manufacture glass in-house, so we source our glass from high-quality custom glass manufacturers. In all cases, we hold the glass obtained from these manufacturers to the same rigorous quality standards to which we hold our own products. Regarding technical quality standards, here is an example of how our glass manufacturers have established quality standards:
          • Inspection Guidelines:
            • Visual inspection should be done with the naked eye
            • The inspector shall place the glass in a vertical position
            • Inspector shall view through the glass at an angle of 90 degrees
            • Lighting should be daylight level (without direct sunlight) or other uniform backlight that simulates daylight.
            • View at the distance specified by potential defect type
        • Criteria:
          • Allowable Point Blemish (viewing distance 39”)
          • Blemish size <0.05” allowed without restriction
          • Blemish size >0.05” < 0.10” allowed with a minimum separation of 24”
          • Blemish size >0.10” not allowed
          • Allowable Linear Blemish (viewing distance starting at 160”)
          • Faint or light scratch <3” allowed
          • Medium scratch <3” allowed with min separation of 24”
          • Medium or heavy scratch >3” are not allowed
        • Allowable Dimensional Tolerance
          • Glass thickness of 1/8” – ¼” = +/- 1/16” Max
          • Glass thickness of 3/8” = +/- 3/32” Max
          • Glass thickness of ½” = +/- 1/8” Max
        • Hardware
          • Hinges
          • Hinges must be maintained properly either by applying a lubricant or water displacer like WD-40 or periodically applying grease via the hinge grease ports on iron doors.
          • The same quality standards that apply to doors apply to attached hinges
          • In the case of certain high-end hardware that we source from third parties, the manufacturer may provide a set of quality standards and warranty on the hinges that exceeds ours. In those cases, your salesperson will be able to direct you to the manufacturer’s appropriate channel for understanding those standards. In all cases, we ensure that the products we source from third parties meet or exceed our rigorous quality standards.
          • Flush Mount Bolts – Flush mount bolts can be damaged if the bolt is forced open or if door is forcibly opened/closed while the bolt is extended. We keep a supply on-hand and can send replacement flush mount bolts. We will replace faulty bolts at no cost for up to one year from the date of purchase. We will replace bolts beyond that point for a nominal cost.
          • Door Sweeps – Door sweeps naturally wear over time with use. We will replace faulty sweeps at no cost for up to one year from the date of purchase. We will replace sweeps beyond that point for a nominal cost.
        • Weather Stripping – Weather stripping naturally wears over time with use. We will replace faulty stripping at no cost for up to one year from the date of purchase. We will replace stripping beyond that point for a nominal cost.
        • Door Handles
          • Fixed Handles (non-mechanical, push/pull) – Fixed handles adhere to the same quality standards as the doors to which they are attached
          • Mechanical Handles – We do not manufacture mechanical handles in-house, so all mechanical handles are sourced by us from third parties. The manufacturers provide their own quality standards and warranties on their handles. In those cases, your salesperson will be able to direct you to the manufacturer’s appropriate channel for understanding those standards and warranties. In all cases, we ensure that the products we source from third parties meet or exceed our rigorous quality standards. If a warranty claim is required, you will be responsible for contacting the manufacturer directly.
        • Deadbolts & Locks
          • Mechanical – We do not manufacture mechanical handles in-house, so all mechanical handles are sourced by us from third parties. The manufacturers provide their own quality standards and warranties on their deadbolts and locking mechanisms. In those cases, your salesperson will be able to direct you to the manufacturer’s appropriate channel for understanding those standards and warranties. In all cases, we ensure that the products we source from third parties meet or exceed our rigorous quality standards. If a warranty claim is required, you will be responsible for contacting the manufacturer directly.
          • Electronic/Wi-Fi – We do not manufacture electronic or Wi-Fi deadbolts or locking mechanisms, and the same standards stated above for mechanical deadbolts and locks apply. Electronic and Wi-Fi deadbolts and locks do have additional considerations.
          • Most electronic locking mechanisms include a traditional keyhole for use as a backup. If you choose to install an electronic locking mechanism on your door that does not have a traditional keyhole backup, keep in mind that if your locking mechanism loses power for any reason, you may be unable to operate it.
          • Electronic locking mechanisms can be very convenient, but are not a complete replacement for being at your door to open the lock. Many homes and homebuilding products such as doors can shift over time or due to environmental changes. This may require that a door be pushed or pulled while locking or unlocking to allow the bolt to properly alight with the bolt receptacle. Keep this in mind if planning to lock and unlock your door remotely, as the bolt may not line up with the receptacle at times.
        • Building Code Requirements
          • Building code requirements vary between states, cities and individual projects. Since we are unable to know the specific building codes that apply in each of our customers’ unique circumstances, we are not responsible for compliance with specific building codes. We always commit to manufacturing products to the specifications provide by our customers, so please be sure that the specifications provided include any specific code requirements.
        • CAD Design
          • During the process of working with you to design the perfect doors and windows for your project, we utilize detailed engineering schematics called CAD drawings (short for Computer-aided Design). These designs detail the exact measurements and specifications to which we will create your product. This is an important phase of the design process that warrants special attention.
          • If your project requires CAD drawings, your salesperson will let you know and will give you an expectation on when those drawings will be available. We are able to complete and provide drawings within 48 hours in most cases, though this can vary based on the complexity of the products, the level of customization, and the quantity of products in your project.
          • In cases where the CAD requirements for a project are particularly heavy, we may ask you to pay a CAD Drawing Fee. In these cases, the amount of the fee will depend on the amount of CAD work required for your project. When you pay a CAD fee, two things happen:
          • When you move forward with your project with Wholesale Iron Doors, the CAD Drawing Fee is applied to your final invoice as a credit.
          • You own the CAD drawings upon completion, and we will provide you with the CAD files or a PDF file of the drawing upon request.
          • If your project requires CAD drawings, we will ask you to review and approve the drawings before we release them into production. This is a critical process, as our production teams build products exactly to the approved CAD specifications, and any changes to specifications after approval may incur significant cost. CAD approval by you or your designee indicates that you have reviewed the CAD with the professional that is managing the installation and that you have taken the necessary steps to verify that all aspects of the product are correct, including both the aesthetic considerations and the technical measurements and specifications of the product in relation to your project. After CAD approval, any changes to the product may incur cost that will be payable by you.
        • Fulfillment
          • Customer Pick Up – You can pick up your product once it is complete and ready for delivery at any of our locations, subject to scheduling availability. You must coordinate a pickup time based on regular business hours by contacting your sales representative. TWO BUSINESS DAYS’ NOTICE IS REQUIRED FOR CUSTOMER PICKUP. There is no cost incurred if you decide to pick it up, even if the product is transferred from one of our other locations, though you may need to allow time for us to move the product to the location nearest to you. You must be prepared to load and strap your product for transportation. Once notice is given at least two business days prior to pickup, we will pre-load your products in a designated customer pickup staging area. You will be responsible for moving the products from the staging area to your vehicle. Our personnel and tools will NOT be available to assist you, so plan to load the products with no assistance.
            • Cost – None
            • Timing – Immediately upon the completion of manufacturing, receipt from supplier, or internal transfer
        • LTL Delivery – Wholesale Iron Doors can coordinate the movement of the product via a commercial LTL carrier to a hub closest to the delivery address. You will be responsible for the movement of the product from the hub to the final destination, including loading, securing, transporting, and unloading the product. You will also be responsible for ensuring you have a vehicle with the proper capacity to transport the product. You must also coordinate a pickup appointment through the LTL carrier and may be responsible for any additional charges incurred for storage. To coordinate LTL delivery, ask your sales representative for an LTL delivery quote. Wholesale Iron Doors will be responsible for building a suitable pallet for the product, and the cost of building a shipping pallet will be included in your total cost of delivery.
            • Cost – Market Rate for a Custom LTL Quote
            • Timing – Delivery to the hub location within three to ten business days after the completion of manufacturing or receipt from supplier
        • Home Delivery – Wholesale Iron Doors can provide home delivery through one of our logistics affiliates. To provide you the most cost effective delivery, we will schedule the delivery in a way that is advantageous to our logistics affiliate, which may delay the delivery for up to 31 calendar days after the completion of manufacturing, delivery from supplier, or transfer from another of our locations. The delivery driver will be responsible for moving the product from the back of the truck, off of the lift gate, and to the closest location on your property. You will be responsible for moving the product to the desired location and removing and disposing of all dunnage and packing materials. We will communicate the delivery window to you no later than seven days after the completion of manufacturing, delivery from the supplier, or internal transfer. We will work diligently to reduce the delivery time as much as possible while giving you maximum notice before delivery.
            • Cost – The greater of 10% of the total sales price of the order(s) or $250 (minimum)
            • Timing – Up to 21 calendar days after the completion of manufacturing, vendor receipt or transfer. This is in addition to the standard manufacturing lead time.
            • Availability – Available in most of the Southern United States in markets within a reasonable range of a Wholesale Iron Doors location. Please speak to your Sales Representative for details.
        • Premium Delivery – Our logistics affiliate can provide a premium delivery service via a company-owned truck. This service is intended to relieve you of all the stress associated with delivery. The service includes the following:
            • Delivery scheduled and completed immediately following the completion of manufacturing, receipt from supplier, or internal transfer
            • You will pick the date and time of the delivery
            • Product delivered to a location you choose
            • The driver and driver assistant will unload the product and place it wherever you request
            • The driver can remove dunnage and packing materials at your request
            • The driver can provide a free warranty check at the time of delivery
            • The completion date, vendor delivery, or transfer will be communicated throughout the process giving you ample time to choose a desired delivery date and time.
            • Cost – Fixed charge per mile from the closest Wholesale Iron Doors location to the final destination. (Minimum charge $500). Speak to your Wholesale Iron Doors Sales Representative for current per-mile rate.
            • Mileage will be calculated using Google Maps, and the fastest route (typically the first route given)
            • Timing – Delivery can be made no less than 48 hours after completion of the manufacturing process, receipt from supplier, or internal transfer, and you choose the date and time of delivery.
        • Installation
            • Wholesale Iron Doors Managed Installation – We offer managed installation services through affiliated installation providers that we have vetted for experience and quality. Wholesale Iron Doors Managed Installation is not available in all markets, and your Wholesale Iron Doors Sales Representative will be able to tell you if Managed Installation is available to you. When you select Wholesale Iron Doors Managed Installation, both your products and your installation are covered by this warranty. In order for your installation to be covered by this warranty, your sales order and/or invoice must include one or more installation line items, and you must have paid Wholesale Iron Doors directly for installation services. Any installation services not documented on an official Wholesale Iron Doors Sales Order or Invoice are not managed by Wholesale Iron Doors and are not warrantied by Wholesale Iron Doors.
              • Initial Measurement – A successful installation always begins with a professional measurement. Importantly, whoever is performing the installation should oversee the measurement, as every installer has their own measurement and installation styles that may affect the design of your products. Our installation teams perform their own measurements. Your sales consultant will let you know when an initial measurement is required. Our goal is to work with your schedule to provide this service at no cost to you. In some instances, the scope or location of a measurement may require that we charge you a small measurement fee to simply cover our cost of providing the service. If we do charge a measurement fee, this amount will be applied to your final invoice as a credit should you move forward with Wholesale Iron Doors managing your installation.
              • CAD Approval – When you utilize Wholesale Iron Doors Managed Installation, we take responsibility for the outside measurements of the product and validating that they will allow the product to be installed safely and securely in your project. Your responsibility in the CAD process is to ensure the products meet your expectations aesthetically.
              • Delivery – Wholesale Iron Doors Managed Installation includes delivery of all purchased products to your jobsite. This delivery can be scheduled on or before the day of installation, provided that there is a secure location to store the products away from weather and theft until the installation.
              • Installation Day – During the installation process, our installation team will adhere to our professional standards. Specifically, installation teams will:
                • Adhere to our safety standards at all times.
                • Keep the jobsite as clean as possible during the installation process.
                • Ensure that the jobsite is physically secured at all times when an installation team member is not present.
                • Communicate any issues and challenges that arise to ensure timely resolution.
                • Leave the jobsite in a condition that is equal to or better than when they arrived.
              • Wholesale Iron Doors Managed Installation extends the length and coverage of the product warranties covered in this document as detailed below. As stated above, to receive the extended product warranties, your sales order and/or invoice must include one or more installation line items, and you must have paid Wholesale Iron Doors directly for installation services.
                • Additional warranties provided if you purchase Wholesale Iron Doors Managed Installation:
                • When you purchase Wholesale Iron Doors Managed Installation, we provide a ten-year manufacturing quality warranty from the date of installation instead of the standard three-year warranty from the date of purchase.
                • All of the standard coverages for iron doors and windows discussed above are covered for the extended period.
                • Additionally, the following items that are NOT covered under the standard warranty are covered for the extended period:
                • Damage caused during installation
                • Cracks, scratches, or damage to glass during installation
                • Any cosmetic issues identified during installation
                • When you purchase Wholesale Iron Doors Managed Installation, we provide a warranty against cosmetic defects identified through the completion of installation, instead of the standard warranty that covers the shorter of 14 days from product receipt or the commencement of installation.
                • All of the standard cosmetic coverages discussed above are covered through the completion of installation.
                • Additionally, the following cosmetic items that are NOT covered under the standard warranty are covered for the extended period:
                • Damaged caused by improper handling of the door prior to or during installation.
                • Bending of door components or damage to finish resulting from overtightening of screws (always hand-tighten screws and do not use power tools).
              • Customer-managed Installation – If you do not purchase Wholesale Iron Doors Managed Installation, there are specific exclusions that we are unable to take responsibility for. If you select Customer-managed Installation, we warranty our products as described in the PRODUCT/SERVICE-SPECIFIC WARRANTY TERMS section at the beginning of this document, but we cannot warranty the installation or any damage that occurs during installation, and any of the Additional and Extended warranties discussed in the Wholesale Iron Doors Managed Installation section above are specifically NOT granted when you select Customer-managed Installation.
                • Initial Measurement – You or your designee (typically a contractor) are responsible for providing us with the measurements for your doors or windows. We build our products to the specifications you provide, so please ensure the measurements are correct. If the product that you order is manufactured to your specifications but is not appropriate for your project, we are unable to take responsibility for the error.
