Roof System Guarantee
What is covered by guarantee?
We guarantee the rain-tightness of our product packages (roof system) for a period of up to 5 years starting from the guarantee date. The present guarantee applies solely to products sold under the brand name BMI Monier® in Malaysia.
5-year roof system guarantee - Legacy®, Perspective®, Mediterrano®, Advanced Contour®

By “rain tightness”, we mean that the tiles, fittings and components (including underlay) will prevent damage to the underlying structure caused by the passage of rain through them or through the junctions between them.
By “product packages” we mean groups of products designed to fit together to create complete roof systems fulfilling the functional requirements set by national application standards.
