The Q-Seal Forever™ Limited Warranty


Q-Seal LLC warrants that natural stone tiles applied with Q-Seal by an authorized Q-Seal distributor will not require resealing for as long as you own the home in which the tiles are installed. This warranty is limited to interior, residential installations, and is for the benefit of the original purchaser of such tiles only. Any outdoor or commercial use voids this warranty.


IMPORTANT: ALL TILES MUST BE INSPECTED PRIOR TO INSTALLATION FOR VISUAL DEFECTS OR NON-CONFORMITIES IN THE Q-SEAL PROTECTIVE SEALER. INSTALLATION OF TILES THAT HAVE APPARENT VISUAL DEFECTS OR NON CONFORMITIES IN THE Q-SEAL PROTECTIVE SEALER VOIDS THE Q-SEAL FOREVER LIMITED WARRANTY.


Exclusive Remedy

  • The warranty holder must at all times reasonably assist Q-Seal LLC by providing information, access to the premises for inspection, and follow all instructions per the Q-Seal Natural Stone Installation, Use and Care Instructions.
  • A warranty claim can be valid ONLY if the Q-Seal applied to a natural stone tile is proven to fail in its essential purpose of not requiring resealing.
  • The sole and exclusive remedy for a breach of this limited warranty is that Q-Seal LLC will, at its sole discretion, either refund the original purchase price of the natural stone tile treated with Q-Seal or, repair the specific area(s) that contain failed Q-Seal.
  • In the event Q-Seal LLC elects to repair the tile, Q-Seal LLC will remove Q-Seal from the surface of the specific area(s) that contain failed Q-Seal, reseal the surface with a traditional, quality stone sealer, and refund the purchase price of the Q-Seal.

    Q-Seal LLC will not pay any additional costs incurred in connection with either the original installation or repair of the tile, including installation labor and materials, demolition, plumbing, electrical, gas, paint or trim costs, maintenance costs, as well as any incidental repairs or modifications.

Limitations

Q-Seal protected stone makes the stone resistant to stains and chemicals, but not impervious to these agents. The presence of a stain, chemical etching, mold or any other damage is not a valid claim under this warranty. Carefully read the applicable Q-Seal Installation, Use and Care Instructions for more information. Please take note of these other important limitations to this warranty.

  • Proper Installation and Care: This warranty only applies to stone tile installed in accordance with the standards and guidelines as set forth in the Tile Council of North America Handbook for Ceramic, Glass and Stone Tile Installation, and installed and maintained in the manner specified in the applicable Q-Seal Natural Stone Installation, Use and Care Instructions.
  • Interior Installations Only: The warranty is limited to interior installations of natural stone and does not cover uses of Q-Seal exposed to outside weather and climate conditions.
  • Residential Installations Only: The warranty is limited to residential installations, and does not cover use of products for "commercial" uses.
  • Non-Transferable: This warranty is non-transferable and is for the benefit of the original purchaser of the stone tile only (or the original resident, if the home is purchased new from a non-resident builder/owner). The warranty is void if the tiles are moved from the original place of installation.
  • Chip, Flake and Scratch Limitation: The warranty does not apply to areas where the stone tile becomes damaged due to chipping, flaking, crumbling or scratching. In the event the tile becomes damaged, Q-Seal may not be present in the damaged area. You may be able to protect that area with conventional stone sealer.
  • Abnormal Use and Conditions: This warranty does not cover abnormal use or conditions, or abuse in any way. "Abnormal use or conditions" includes, but is not limited to, damage from mishandling or misuse, damage from excessive heat or fire, physical or chemical abuse, vandalism, and damage from improper care and maintenance.
