1- This warranty is limited to peeling and cracking of the paint surface and does not include rust or damage resulting from accidents or road conditions or hazards, or pre-existing conditions. Fade warranty applies only to those paint packages that specify inclusion of fade warranty. It is the sole discretion of a duly authorized LAPI representative to determine if the condition of the refinish shall be covered by the warranty. Under no circumstances will hidden damage, pre-existing conditions (often difficult to detect), rust, dents, cracks, or any other condition not covered under warranty, be repaired at no charge. The customer may opt to have these conditions repaired for a charge at the time of the repair.
2- Extra stripping (sanding)/preparation (priming) will be performed only if customer agrees and it is detailed on the “repair order” form. No warranty can be offered if customer chooses not to have stripping (full sanding)/extra prep (priming) done on severely damaged paint surfaces, or on any panels that customer has done work on. Please understand that minor imperfections such as minor nicks, scratches, or chips may be visible under the paint and are acceptable unless they are listed as specific area(s) of repair(s) on your “Estimate Order” form. Minimum amounts of dust and a slight texture appearance are inherent to the refinishing process and do not affect the peeling, cracking, and fade warranty.
3- Rust can form inside hollow metal parts, below metal surfaces, and inside hidden seams. The recurrence of rust is possible at any time and therefore is beyond the limits of control by LAPI. Therefore, all rust repairs including materials are guaranteed for 90 days. In most rust damage cases, it is recommended panels be replaced.
4- This warranty does not cover galvanized or plastic parts. All materials to spot or panel paint other areas will be guaranteed against peeling, cracking, and shrinking for one (1) year.
5- Performance by LAPI under this warranty is limited to repair of the paint job by partial or complete repainting. Customer shall not be entitled to a refund, nor shall LAPI be liable for any other damage suffered by customer in connection with the original work of this warranty.
6- Customer must report a complaint about a defect in the paint job covered by this warranty within the warranty period by writing or appearing in person at our facility.
7- THERE ARE NO WARRANTIES, EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, WHICH EXTEND BEYOND THE DESCRIPTION ON THE FACE HEREOF. ALL IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS ARE EXPRESSLY EXCLUDED.
8- This warranty is not transferable, and must be signed by a duly authorized agent of LAPI.
