It means nothing if it is not backed. All too often I see very vague descriptions in warranties much like above. Too much open to interpretation.

It's just as important to have what is not included or how many times the warranty can be used. If the same plant dies ten times will you keep replacing it?

That was taken off an competitors website. I was just amazed that someone would go to that length, and in a climate that frost levels are changing year after year.....This year i bet we have an inch due to the snow cover, other years i bet 2 ft. I know if a patio is done right, shouldnt worry but for 10 years have this hanging over your head?

So we will see how long he stays or what he actually owns up to it.

He may have a construction background and learned bad habits. A lot of the construction company's rename themselves every 5 years or so to dodge warranties.
