• 1. APPLICABILITY OF TERMS.

    These terms and conditions shall apply to, and govern, the purchase, sale and installation of any Cascadia Windows Ltd. (“Cascadia”) products, whether or not such products are specifically identified in a Supply Quotation and Order Form. Cascadia hereby objects to any conflicting, additional and/or different terms contained in any purchase order or other documents provided by Purchaser, and the same shall not become part of these Terms and Conditions unless specifically authorized in writing by Cascadia’s authorized representative.


    2. PRICING, ESCALATION, AVAILABILITY, AND SCOPE OF ORDER.

    Purchaser acknowledges that the volatility in markets may impact Cascadia’s ability to supply the Products at the Purchase Price or within the delivery time and that Cascadia would not be willing to enter into an Order with Purchaser without the ability to change the Purchase Price and/or the delivery time. Accordingly, Purchaser agrees that both the Purchase Price and the delivery time are subject to change after Acceptance due to price escalation in material costs and/or transportation costs, and/or the availability of materials required by Cascadia to fulfill the Order. At any time after the date of the Order, Cascadia may increase the Purchase Price and/or the delivery time by notifying the Purchaser in writing of the increase, provided that Cascadia presents Purchaser with evidence, in the form of correspondence or other records from Cascadia’s supplier(s), of an increase in price and/or the unavailability of materials that impacts Cascadia. Cascadia reserves the right to increase the Purchase Price based upon a corresponding increase of prices of any materials from its suppliers for the manufacture of the Products, and based upon an estimate that the input of materials for the manufacture of the Products are according to the following percentages: fiberglass-10%, insulated glass units (IGUs) or glass-20%, aluminum-10%, hardware-10%, and paint-5%. If the price escalation results in an increase in the Purchase Price of 15% or less, Purchaser agrees to accept and pay the revised Purchase Price. If the increase in the delivery time is 30 days or less, Purchaser agrees to accept the revised delivery time. If the increase in the Purchase Price is more than 15% of the total Purchase Price or if the increase in the delivery time is more than 30 days, Purchaser shall have three (3) days after receipt of Cascadia’s written notice to cancel the Order, subject to any applicable cancelation fees, by providing Cascadia with a written cancelation. Purchaser’s failure to provide Cascadia with a written request for cancelation of the Order after receipt of Cascadia’s notice, shall operate as Purchaser’s acceptance of the revised Purchase Price and/or revised delivery time and Purchaser agrees to pay Cascadia the revised Purchase Price in accordance with the Payment terms herein.


    3. SHOP DRAWINGS.

    If shop drawings are provided by Cascadia with respect to any Order, then such shop drawings shall take precedence over any other drawings, specifications or other requirements provided by, or on behalf of, Purchaser. In the event Purchaser does provide any drawings, details, specifications or other requirements, Cascadia assumes no liability whatsoever for its interpretation thereof, and Purchaser’s acceptance of the shop drawings must be based on final approval by Purchaser or architects, engineers or other third parties retained by Purchaser.


    4. IMPROPER INSTALLATIONS OR DESIGNS.

    Purchaser is responsible for understanding the window and door configurations and requirements for proper installation of the products supplied by Cascadia, including but not limited to the rough opening sizing and technical requirements for the products supplied, and must prepare the project or building to allow for proper installations. Purchaser must ensure the accuracy and quality of window and door rough openings, including sizes, alignments, flashings, the quality of workmanship, and other building details as required to allow the products to function properly in conjunction with Cascadia’s specified tolerances and requirements applicable to the products to be supplied. If products supplied by Cascadia are improperly installed, or if the project or building is improperly designed so as to affect the performance of supplied products, then Cascadia shall have no responsibility or liability where such improper installations or designs affect the performance of supplied products.


    5. LEAD TIME REQUIRED PRIOR TO DELIVERY.

    Provided that an Order has been accepted by Cascadia, written notice of the requested delivery date(s) must be given to Cascadia by Purchaser up to twelve (12) weeks prior to such requested delivery date(s). Cascadia shall not be liable for any delay in delivery due to any cause beyond Cascadia’s control including, but not limited to, governmental action, strikes or other labour disputes, fire, damage or destruction of goods, manufacturers’ shortages, delays or inability to obtain materials, fuels or supplies, acts of God, or any other cause whatsoever beyond Cascadia’s control.


    6. PAYMENT.

    Except as otherwise agreed upon in writing by Cascadia and Purchaser, fifty percent (50%) of the Purchase Price shall be due upon Purchaser’s submission of the Order to Cascadia, which payment will be applied pro rata in partial payment for each item ordered. The balance of the Purchase Price shall be paid prior to delivery or shipment of the Products. Any amounts above and beyond the Purchase Price are due within thirty (30) days of the date of Cascadia’s invoice for such additional amounts. All payments shall be submitted to Cascadia’s address as shown in the Order, and must be made in the currency specified in the Order. Interest shall accrue on all past due amounts at the rate of one and one-half percent (1-1/2%) per month until paid in full.

In the event of late or non-payment Cascadia reserves the right to stop work and collect product from Purchaser for which payment has not been made.

  • LIMITED EXPRESS WARRANTIES & LIMITATIONS

    Cascadia Windows Ltd. (“Cascadia”), with respect to the sale, supply, use and installation (when installed by Cascadia), of its fiberglass window and door products (the “products”) and subject to the exclusions and limitations herein, provides to the original Purchaser of the products the following limited express warranty (the “Warranty”):

     

    FIBERGLASS FRAMES:

    Cascadia warrants, for a period of twenty (20) years, commencing from the date of delivery of the products to the original Purchaser, that its fiberglass window and door frame components are free from defects in materials and workmanship. Fiberglass has material properties relative to strength, flexibility, durability, and thermal resistance that make it ideal for window and door frame applications. It is possible, however, for fiberglass to exhibit micro fissures at penetrations or concentrated stress locations. Cascadia’s products are designed, manufactured, and tested with this potential in mind. Such minor fissures are a function of the material properties of fiberglass, do not compromise product performance, structural integrity, or durability, are not a product defect and therefore are not covered by this Warranty. Cascadia reserves the right to determine if stress induced micro fissures are material in nature. Cascadia’s obligations under this section of this Warranty are limited to the repair or replacement of fiberglass frames, at its sole discretion.

     

    HARDWARE:

    Cascadia warrants, for a period of ten (10) years, commencing from the date of delivery of the products to the original Purchaser, that its operating hardware supplied integrally with the products is free from defects in materials and workmanship.

An optional warranty, up to 20 (twenty) years, may be provided to the Purchaser to the extent that it is available from the manufacturer. The warranty of the IGUs is limited to the failure of the hermetic seal, and warrants only against the formation of water and/or dust on or within the interior surfaces of the IGUs. Cascadia shall provide no warranty of the IGUs separate and apart, or in addition to, the manufacturer’s warranty. The remedy provided under this section of this warranty is limited to the supply only of replacement IGUs by Cascadia, FOB Cascadia’s plant, for defective IGUs. Labor costs to replace defective IGUs are not covered under this warranty.

     

    INSULATING GLASS UNITS - Laminated Glass and Capillary Tubes:

    The sealed insulating glass units (IGUs) consisting of laminated glass, and /or those IGU’s that have capillary tubes, and which are incorporate into Cascadia Products, are manufactured by a third-party glazing supplier, and are installed by Cascadia within its fiberglass frames. The IGUs shall only be covered by the manufacturer’s limited warranty for a period of 5 (five) years, commencing from the date stamp found on the spacer bar between the sheets of glass. The warranty of the IGUs is limited to the failure of the hermetic seal, and warrants only against the formation of water and/or dust on/or within the interior surfaces of the IGUs. Cascadia shall provide no warranty of the IGUs separate and apart, or in addition to, the manufacturer’s warranty. The remedy provided under this section of this warranty is limited to the supply only of replacement IGUs by Cascadia, FOB Cascadia’s plant, for defective IGUs. Labor costs to replace defective IGUs are not covered under this warranty.

     

    EXCLUSIONS:

    3. Malfunction or reduced performance resulting from improper building design or product installation;
    4. Damage or malfunction resulting from settlement of the building containing the products;
    5. Discoloration occurring after delivery of the products to the original Purchaser and arising from accumulations of dirt or other substances having the capacity to stain the painted surface or fiberglass products;
    6. Damage resulting from wind, hail, fire, lightning, or other acts of God, or exposure to caustic chemicals or pollutants;
    7. Defects or damage resulting from any modification of the product(s) without Cascadia’s written approval;
    8. Condensation on the surface of any product that may occur as the result of excess humidity or moisture; and
