In the event of a guarantee claim we will require sight of the specified resistance readings, failure to provide sight of such will void the guarantee. Our guarantee is limited to the location of, excavation of and repair of a single point of failure – the guarantee does not cover cost of making good any flooring materials removed or excavated in order to gain access to the heating cable. We reserve the right to offer replacement heating materials or refund the original purchase price if location of, access to, or repair of the heating installation is not viable.
