In order to ensure a clear agreement and understanding of the UNIVERSAL IRON DOORS INC. terms and conditions, please review the following content prior to placing an order through our website. Access and uses of this website are subject to all applicable laws, along with the terms listed below:
WARRANTY AND REFUNDS
UNIVERSAL IRON DOORS INC. guarantees that all artisanal iron doors, windows, and other products sold through our website will be free from defect in material and craftsmanship for a one year period after the initial purchase date. Our customer service team will replace any substandard product or parts that have been deemed defective (within one year from the date of sale on the frame of the door, one year on moving parts, one year on glass for any defect on center seal excluding scratches, broken glass, etc.) at UNIVERSAL IRON DOORS INC.’ sole discretion.
We ask you to keep in mind that exposure to natural elements and frequent use is expected to cause UNIVERSAL IRON DOORS INC., windows, and other products purchased and ordered through our site to naturally age. Although UNIVERSAL IRON DOORS INC. are galvanized we do not recommend direct exposure to water, any damages or changes to the products brought on by frequent use or exposure to the elements is considered an organic process that cannot be prevented, and is not thought to be a defect that is covered by the terms and conditions of this site.
Any improper care and cleaning specifically washing the door or window with a garden hose will void the warranty.
UNIVERSAL IRON DOORS INC. products are hand forged and individually finished in our factory. Minor differences in these products are normal and to be expected to achieve the “hand-forged” look, so this will not be considered a defect.
IF YOU LIVE IN A CLIMATE WHERE THE TEMPERATURE FALL BELOW FREEZING: A Thermal Break door mainly prevents the inside of the door from freezing/icing up in winter months and helps keep the blistering heat out in the summer, this feature is $95 per sq. ft. IF YOUR TEMPERATURE FALLS BELOW FREEZING, WE SUGGEST YOU OPT FOR THIS FEATURE!
We have thousands of our “Standard Insulated” doors all over the country and most all have done well over the last 17 years however there is always the possibility of the face our standard door “icing up” inside the home (we cannot control Mother Nature). If you install our Standard Insulated iron door in a cold climate and it Ices up, the only recourse would be to install a “Storm Door” over it or replace it at your own expense if this rare occurrence were to happen. Universal Iron Doors holds no liability if this happens. Many homes in “cold climates” have Storm Doors” over their entry doors and these are normal in cold climates. Our Iron doors “ARE NOT” Storm Doors, they are front entry doors.
All items in the “Sales” section are sold as-is with no warranty, each door system has been hung, inspected and fully functional and free of any defects leaving our warehouse – all sales are final

UNIVERSAL IRON DOORS INC. is not responsible for any city or state codes regarding the doors (ADA, Thermal Broken (sweating or ice), Hurricane Tested, Swing Codes, etc.). THERMALLY BROKEN DOOR (*CUSTOMER TO VERIFY W/ BUILDING CODE IF TEMPERATURES MAY GET 25 DEGREES OR LESS INCLUDING CHILL FACTOR) Bubbling paint or scratches that occur around the lock area is caused by improper installation methods or techniques used to correct the installation: The following are common issues with installers causing damage to the finish around the lock areas: 1. The third hole drilled by the installer for the lower lock area is not aligned. The damage is caused when installers over tighten the lock to compensate the unaligned hole that was drilled. The tightening of the lock causes pressure on the door finish leading to marks and scratches around that area. The tightening of the lock also causes a slight bowing of the lock in the center. 2. Attempting to straighten or align the lock after the screws have been installed on the lock. Aligning a lock should be done before the screws are put in. 3. Multiple attempts to install the lock.
TO PREVENT LEAKAGE
For all door and window orders, customers will need to make sure there is a sufficient overhang. The overhang needs to be the same width and height of the door or window (starting from outside dimensions of the doors and windows).
Even if you have an overhang, it is also recommended for the window and doors to be out-swing to help with weather sealing because of the unpredictable combinations of side wind and rain (in-swing windows are vulnerable to leakage because of the bottom threshold).
