penetration of water from the exterior of the building through the System and into the building.

                                                     Terms, Conditions and Limitations

          1.         Warranty Period. The period of this Limited Warranty shall be from                                    to
                                        . Any repaired portion of the System as well as the remaining original System will be warranted only

components and systems in the building are EXCLUDED from this Limited Warranty, and EDA Contractors shall have no liability or
responsibility for the effect of any such lack of coordination or mis-coordination on the EDA Building Envelope System or its performance,

of coordination or mis-coordination. In addition, any leaks in the EDA Building Envelope System that result from or are caused by errors,
