Limited Eighteen Year Warranty
- Warranty. This Limited Warranty from Alpha Systems LLC. (“Alpha”) applies solely to the original retail purchaser of a finished product (“Product”’) that includes a roof membrane supplied by Alpha (the “Alpha Roof Membrane”). Alpha warrants to the original retail purchaser (the “Purchaser”) that for a period of eighteen (18) years from the original purchase date of the Product, the Alpha Roof Membrane shall be free from defects in materials that cause the Alpha Roof Membrane to degrade, deteriorate, or dry rot. This Limited Warranty is non-transferable. The Limited Warranty is a performance based warranty and does not cover the appearance of the Alpha Roof Membrane. Alpha is a supplier to the RV Industry and does not install the roof membrane.
Coverages. This Limited Warranty constitutes the exclusive remedy against Alpha for all defects of the Alpha Roof Membrane. The exclusive remedies available to Purchaser shall be at Alpha’s sole and absolute discretion, to provide either: (i) material for the replacement of the defective portion of the Alpha Roof Membrane; or (ii) a credit to Purchaser toward the purchase of a new Alpha Roof Membrane equal to the estimated material cost to repair the defective Alpha Roof Membrane.
For eighteen (18) years from the date of purchase, this Limited Warranty will cover one hundred percent (100%) of the cost of materials on an approved claim. Alpha Systems does not install the Roof membrane and is not responsible for any problems relating directly or indirectly from the installation of the Roof Membrane.
With respect to the cost of labor, for the first two (2) years from the date of purchase, this Limited Warranty will cover one hundred percent (100%) of labor costs on an approved claim. Alpha must approve the application to be used and Alpha Systems will pay a maximum rate of .8 hours per lineal foot of coach. Alpha will not pay for any removal or installation of any non-Alpha accessories including all underlayments, vents, skylights, antenna, etc. Costs will be reduced on a pro rata basis beginning with the third year and continuing until five years from the date of purchase. For any approved claim made during Year 3, this Limited Warranty will cover sixty percent (60%) of the cost of labor. After Year 3, there shall be a pro rata reduction of this Limited Warranty’s coverage for the cost of labor as follows: Coverage for Year 4 – 40%; Year 5 – 20%. Any claim made after five years from the date of purchase shall not include the cost of labor.
- Purchaser’s Obligations. Purchaser is responsible for inspecting the Alpha Roof Membrane at the time of delivery. The Purchaser is responsible for the normal maintenance and care of the Alpha Roof Membrane. The Purchaser should read and follow all care and maintenance instructions for the cleaning and maintenance of the Alpha Roof Membrane. Purchaser should conduct at least quarterly inspections of the Alpha Roof Membrane.
Claim Procedure. Within thirty (30) days after discovering a purported defect in the Alpha Roof Membrane, the Purchaser must deliver written notice of the purported defect to Alpha Systems LLC, 5120 Beck Drive, Elkhart, Indiana 46516.

Failure to provide such notice to Alpha within (30) days after discovery of a purported defect will delay any warranty claim.
Purchaser must notify Alpha of any problems believed to require warranty service. Upon receipt of such notice, an Alpha representative will investigate the claim with the supplied information and/or request to have the unit brought to Alpha or one of its representatives within a reasonable time after receiving Purchaser’s written notice.

Sealants and other roof related items are not included in this limited Warranty. This warranty shall be void if any component in the Alpha Roof Membrane is not an Alpha product. Alpha shall not be responsible for the cleanliness, discoloration, chalking, or streaking caused by environmental conditions nor contamination by pollutants (oxidation) and presence of the same does not constitute a defect in or to the Alpha Roof Membrane.
