This description is for the standard 15yr manufacturer warranty. Artificial Grass Masters offers a Industry Leading Extended Warranty not available anywhere else!
Artificial Grass UV Fade Warranty
Under our Fade Warranty we cover any fading that occurs due to sun exposure. This applies to changing in color. If our surface becomes unsecured from its base we will reattach it. This warranty does not apply if the surface is purposefully pulled up or an attempt at purposefully detaching the surface is made. If a seam separates and creates a noticeable gap we will gladly make a return visit to secure the seam and refasten it. The warranty also does not apply if the seam was purposefully pulled apart. Generally seams will only separate if seasonal heat creates enough expansion and/or contraction of the surface to create a gap in the seams, this is not common. Restretching of the surface is covered. Because of the extremes of local climate, artificial grass surfaces can sometimes expand and contract enough to create a rippling effect on the surface, should this happen we will gladly make a visit to restretch the surface. This is only typical of installation completed in cooler months, even though we thoroughly stretch the surface during the installation sometimes the cool air does not allow enough elasticity in the backing. When the summer air hits it allows the back to relax and appear to have a couple of “loose” areas in the lawn. Should this happen with your project we recommend waiting until peak of the summer heat to have us perform a restretch.The heat will give the backing of the product more elasticity and allow us to stretch the surface to maximum amount, eliminating the need for further restretching. There is no negative effect on the product or its durability,it is only a cosmetic issue that is easily corrected.

The solar screens installed by Artificial Grass Masters are guaranteed to be free from defects in materials and workmanship. Items that are covered include screen material pulling away from the spline, faults in the structure of the fabric because of manufacturing processes, screens coming out of the window frame because of an installation error (not because of high winds and foundation shifting) and grids coming loose from the frame or at riveted junctions in the case of decorative grids. Artificial Grass Masters assumes no responsibility for screen failure due to fire, flood, high winds or other Acts of God, misuse, handling, building design or foundation shifting. It is also assumed that decorative grids, over time, will perhaps gradually warp and shift due to variable pressures put on the screen from the window frame contracting and expanding with the seasonal shifts in humidity and handling for cleaning purposes. Overspray from improperly applied lawn and pest chemicals, certain cleaning solvents, and chemicals from pool cleaning equipment will void this warranty.
