We manufacture our products using the highest quality, automotive grade materials. We feel confident that we could sell our products at a premium price and build in a higher profit margin to offset the cost of a longer warranty, however, we feel that keeping our prices lower allows our customers to receive a high quality product at a more reasonable price.
With regular preventative maintenance you can greatly increase the longevity of any tonneau cover. I've personally worked with customers who have had a Fold-a-Cover on their truck for over 10 years still going strong. If you take care of this product it can last the lifetime of your vehicle.
Your Fold-A-Cover G4 only has a year warranty, when other manufacturers offer lifetime and/or 10-year warranties on their covers and components. I would think that a product like yours would come with a competitive warranty. Why does it not?
