Kindred products are built to last. We stand behind all of our products with industry certifications and solid product warranties.
In the United States, Canada and Latin America, Franke warrants the Kindred products from manufacturing defects in material and workmanship when purchased from Franke or a Franke/Kindred Authorized Retailer pursuant to product-specific warranties detailed herein (each, a “Warranty” and collectively, the “Warranties”). The products must be properly installed, per company’s installations instructions, in its original installation, and used in normal indoor residential kitchen applications. Any products or components which have been modified or altered, from its original intended condition will void the warranty. The Franke Warranties for Kindred branded products are limited to the original purchaser and are non-transferrable. These Warranties do not include products purchased from non-Authorized Retailers, products that are obsolete or discontinued, or products that were previous display models. All issues with installed products are considered warranty claims and not subject to the Return Policy. Franke reserves the right to inspect any Kindred product reported to be defective and the original installation prior to providing a replacement product and/or component. All decisions are final. In no situation shall the liability of Franke exceed the amount of the original purchase price.
The Warranties do not cover, and Franke shall not be liable for, any damage to products or components resulting from misuse or abuse, accidental damages, normal wear such as scuffs, scratches or finish reduction/fading; improper installation, abnormal usage, negligence, damage caused by improper maintenance or cleaning. Damage caused by impurities, corrosive chemicals or acts beyond Franke’s control are not covered by any Warranty.
Kindred product replacements do not include transportation, shipping, diagnosis, labor, installation, removal, disposal for any products or liability for project delays. Product replacements are not guaranteed to be exact replacements. The owner of a product is liable for any transportation and re-installation costs related to any warranty for such product. If the original product is not available at the time of the warranty claim, at Franke’s option, the product replacements will be of similar size, material, and value. Any products or components which have been modified or altered, from its original intended condition will void the warranty.
The Warranties do not allow recovery of incidental or consequential damages such as loss of use, delay, property damage or other consequential damage, and Franke accepts no liability for such damages.
