Where applicable, a copy of the claim should also be sent to the Contractor within 48 hours of the claim being notified to SIG under this paragraph.

6.3 Any repairs deemed necessary by SIG during an inspection of the roof which are the fault of the owner of the Property (or its agents, contractors, employees or invitees) must be carried out at the owner of the Property’s expense in accordance with SIG’s recommendations for this Warranty to continue to be effective.
