The Seller will have no liability in the event that replacement materials may vary in color in comparison to the original product as a result of product changes or normal weathering. Any refund or material replacement by The Seller shall constitute a full settlement and release of all claims of any covered person hereunder for damages or other relief. The warranties set forth herein are Seller’s sole and exclusive warranties. In no event shall Seller be liable for other damages, including, without limitation, or for special, incidental, punitive or consequential damages.
