The CAMBRIDGE FULLY-TRANSFERABLE LIMITED LIFETIME WARRANTY
Cambridge Pavers Inc. warrants to the owner that, should a Cambridge pavingstone or wallstone, installed according to ICPI installation guidelines, prove defective, it will be replaced without cost. Replacement labor is not included. THIS WARRANTY IS TRANSFERABLE WITH VALID PROOF OF PURCHASE.
Cambridge Pavers like any other concrete products and or natural stone will not resist staining and or environmental debris build up. Anything outdoors whether man-made or natural will suffer Mother Nature's wrath when exposed to the elements 24/7, 365 days a year. Therefore, if you want to keep your pavers looking good it will entail some maintenance on your part. This could mean an easy clean with dish soap and water or something more substantial depending on the type of stain. We cover all the ways to care for your pavers if you do come across a stubborn stain on FAQ's.

, a whitish powder-like deposit that sometimes appears on concrete products, in no way affects the structural integrity of the pavingstones or wallstones and will wash and wear off over time. The use of concrete setting beds may also increase the possible occurrence of efflorescence
. Because this is a natural occurrence, Cambridge Pavers, Inc. accepts no responsibility or liability for this condition. Cambridge Pavingstones are made from natural, environmentally-friendly material, and therefore, variations in color may occur.
Polymeric haze from the use of polymeric joint sand may appear on your concrete products if the sand was not removed from the surface of the paver properly. This does not affect the integrity of the product or your installation. The hazing will weather away naturally with time and rain or it can be removed with a specialized cleaner. You are advised to contact your contractor. Cambridge Pavers, Inc. accepts no responsibility or liability for this occurrence.
Cambridge Pavers, Inc. is offering the Alliance Gator Base product based on customer requests. The use of this product is not covered under ICPI guidelines or Cambridge's warranty. All warranty claims will be forwarded directly to Alliance.
Custom colors as well as pavers with Blue and Shell pigments do not have color throughout. Cambridge Wallstones are made without ArmorTec®.
equipment should have the proper rubber blade guards to protect the surface of the pavers. Cambridge Pavers is not responsible for any damage caused by snow removal equipment, which may leave burns and
scuff marks on pavers.
NOTE: De-icing chemicals - We recommend using sand as the preferred method for providing skid and slip resistance. If using de-icer we recommend only sodium chloride (NaCl). De-icer should be applied sparingly. Once loosened snow and ice should be promptly removed to avoid a build-up in concentration of the de-icing chemical. Do not use products that contain a blend of chemicals.
A bolt-on urethane protection mat must be attached to the plate compactor as a precaution against surface scuffing on all Cambridge textured products. Installation guidelines must follow those as
instructed by the Interlocking Concrete Pavement Institute (ICPI).
In order to make a claim under this Warranty, the owner must return the defective pavingstone or wallstone to the dealer who sold the product. Any implied warranties of merchantability and/or fitness for a particular
purpose are limited as stated above. The exclusive remedy under this Warranty is replacement of a defective pavingstone or wallstone. Cambridge Pavers Inc. shall not be liable for incidental or consequential damage
arising from any breach of warranty. Some states do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, or the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitations may not apply to you. Any court action making a claim under this Warranty must be commenced within one year of the date on which the defect was, or in the exercise of reasonable care, could have been discovered. This Warranty
gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights which vary from state to state.
Cambridge adheres to ASTM Designation C 936-82 standards as found on our website. Vehicular applications should be accommodated through pavingstones with an aspect ratio of 3:1 or less. Units with an overall
length to thickness aspect ratio of 4:1 or greater should not be used in vehicular applications (ICPI Technical Specification 10). An example of a Cambridge product not suitable for vehicular applications is the Ledgestone
XL which has an aspect ratio greater than 4:1; this product should only be used in pedestrian applications (sidewalks, patios, walkways, etc.).
CAST STONE PRODUCTS WARRANTY:
Cambridge Pavers, Inc. warrants to the original purchaser (with a proof of purchase) that should Cast Stone products (Steps, Caps & Stepping Stones) installed according to
industry standards and in compliance with our installation guidelines, prove defective, they will be replaced without cost. Replacement labor is not included. This Warranty is good for as long as the original consumer
purchaser (homeowner) owns the property on which the Cast Stone was installed. Cast Stone products meet or exceed ASTM C672. Do not use de-icing salts (sodium chloride (NaCl)) on cast stone products. All
exclusions concerning color, efflorescence, polymeric haze, compactor & snow removal equipment apply from our standard warranty. Cambridge cannot guarantee the color match of any replacement pieces. Cast
Stone products cannot be compacted.
NATURAL STONE DISCLAIMER:
Cambridge Pavers does not offer a warranty on any of our Natural Stone products including Outdoor Porcelain Tiles
. Natural stones may also have pyrite (rust) in the stones which
can occur in all natural products. Cambridge Pavers Inc. has partnered with quarries from around the world to offer Natural Stone products. Unlike manufactured stone, Natural Stone will vary in terms of color, pattern
and texture, because these are products of nature and not manmade. There are no two pieces alike when it comes to Natural Stone, that is what makes these products beautiful and unique. Natural Stone products delivered
to your home may not be an exact product match to what you might have seen in a show room or in our brochure.
Natural Stone products can last a lifetime, but if you want to keep them looking like they did when first installed some general maintenance is necessary. Natural Stone products can stain and become scratched, because they contain naturally porous surfaces. To avoid staining from occurring keep surfaces clear of dirt, damp leaves, acidic products, and oils. If any of these things do come in contact with your Natural Stone remove them as soon as possible by cleaning them with soap and water. If this method does not work Natural Stone cleaning products can be found in your local building material store, but be sure to avoid any cleaners containing acids.
Sealing Natural Stone comes to personal preference. Some people feel unsealed stones get better looking with age, while others feel sealing their stones aids in easier clean up and less maintenance, although this is not a guarantee. If you choose to seal your stones always do a test patch in a spot that is not very noticeable to ensure you are happy with the end result.
