A warranty is a guarantee of a service or product. In the field of construction, warranties are guarantees that the work performed or product supplied will function as intended, properly and reliably for a set amount of time. Most construction warranties are in writing and they establish the standard for determining what work or product is defective. There may also be instances where an implied warranty may be applicable.
When drafting or reviewing the terms and conditions of a warranty, it is important to have a lawyer help you in order to understand what is and is not covered, and to avoid ambiguity.
