Product Disclaimers


Shower Enclosures:

  • Heavy shower door “steam unit” disclaimer:  Due to the design of heavy shower doors, they are not steam tight and cannot be considered at true steam unit.

  • Frameless shower enclosures are not watertight units. These units may have water leakage through the hinge, strike or bottom seams as they meet the tile, stone or manmade media such as cultured marble.

  • Abrasive cleaners such as may incur damage to the unit and should never be used. Many product components are coated with a lacquer and abrasive cleaners will scratch them.

  • Any shower enclosure being installed in an existing opening may not completely cover, or mask the mounting holes left by the originally installed unit.  EGC is not responsible for sealing or concealing pre-existing holes.


Single & Dual Glaze Replacements:

  • Dual Pane glass units being installed within wood frames are not covered under warranty.  EGC will not be responsible for the refinishing (staining, painting), and or the replacement of wood stops within a wood window repair.

  • Not all Low-E coatings will match the original window coating color.

  • Dual pane glass failure replacements have a 3-year material warranty from the original date of installation. Installation labor to reinstall the replacement glass is warranted for the first year only.


Dual Glazed Unit: There is no warranty on dual glazed units installed into wood frames.  Either from the manufacturer or from EGC.


Tile: Due to the nature of the product sometimes glass tile breaks during drilling holes.  There is no warranty against breakage.  If tile become broken it would be the customer’s responsibility to have the tile replaced.


Roof Tile:  This installation requires roof access on a tiled roof.  There is no warranty against broken or damaged roof tiles.  We will be as careful as we can be during this installation but if tiles get broken or damaged it would be the customer’s responsibility to have them repaired or replaced.


Buried Glass:  There is no warranty against leakage when the glass is buried below the surface of the tile or marble.  There is no way of knowing if the area is water proof.  If this unit should leak for any reason it will leak below the surface and may not be noticed until there is actual structural damage.  Customer shall indemnify EGC from any claim of damage this type of installation may cause.


Removal: Some holes from existing unit may be exposed.  We will fill them with silicone.  If any other repair work is needed it would be at the customer’s expense by others.


Existing Window Treatments: Any window treatments will need to be removed prior to installation. Blinds will need to be reinstalled post installation. EGC will not provide these services.


Custom Pattern Glass: is a non-refundable, custom item. Patterns are not always consistent with the samples based on origin of manufacture. Size plays a factor on the look in some cases. EGC cannot be held responsible for inconsistences.  Customer is required to sign off on pattern and color selections prior to installation.


Wood or Vinyl Stops: There is no warranty on wooden or vinyl stops.  EGC will be as careful as we can be while removing wood stops, but we have no way of know how much glue is on them or how weather damaged they are.  If stops become broken or damaged during removal or installation it would be the customer’s responsibility to repair or replace them.


Low-E Glass: is not guaranteed to be a perfect color match. There are several variations based on

manufacture. EGC will make every effort to match glass as close as possible.
