DAMAGED PRECAST CONCRETE AND OTHER PREFABRICATED CLADDINGS
Precast concrete panels and other prefabricated cladding components should be intact without aesthetic damage visible from a distance of 6 m and with no missing sections. Damage to the panel should not detract from the architectural intent.
One-Year - Work and Materials
Damaged panels shall be repaired.
Precast concrete panels are often damaged during installation and require repair. Some damage may be acceptable without repair if located in service areas not accessed by residents or the general public, providing the damage does not impact the anchorage or permit water penetration. Damage occurring from owner-related activities e.g. window washing, is not covered by warranty.
