Round Grove Products LLC, hereinafter “Round Grove”, warrants to the original purchasing homeowner, that under normal use this product will be free from defects in material and workmanship for as long as the purchaser owns and lives in the single family residence, hereinafter “Home”, in which the product was installed.
Round Grove fireplace, pizza oven, and grill island kits are warranted against defects in material and workmanship, and against rotting and decay for as long as you own and live in the Home in which the product was installed, provided that it is installed without alteration and in accordance with applicable building codes.
The terms of this Limited Warranty excludes weathering or discoloring of the unfinished scratchcoat finish and delamination, cracking, warping, or other failures of the product which are the result of improper care and use of the product or involve stress caused by localized application of excessive heat (generally determined to be temperatures above 800 degrees Farenheit), movement of adjacent building or building components, or expansion/contraction of adjacent building or building components.
Generally, cracking of the refractory mortar is NOT considered to be a warrantable condition, rather it is natural for mortar joints to experience some cracking because of expansion/contraction during the “heat load” in the firebox.
Proper care and use of the product including techniques to dry out the build-up of condensation within the product as spelled out in the product manuals (“Using your pizza oven” and “Cleaning and maintenance of your pizza oven” available at www.roundgroveproducts.com) must be followed. Failure to follow the correct procedures will void the warranty. Use of liquid fuels, waxes, charcoal, coal, or fire-starter materials will void the warranty.
