Many states and localities have codes and regulations governing sales, construction, installation, and/or use of Products for certain purposes, which may vary from those in neighboring areas. While Dedeco attempts to assure that it's Products comply with such codes, it cannot guarantee compliance, and cannot be responsible for how the Product is installed or used.
