The installer is not responsible for the 20 years but only for what his own warranty provides.

This is disappointing.
Suppose the manufacturer is in China or some other difficult or distant place. Why isn't the installer from whom you purchased
the product the one who is responsible for going after the manufacturer, rather than the consumer?
Lawyer: Debra, Lawyer replied 3 years ago
The installer is not obligated to remain responsible for the product for 20 years, that would make the installer be an impossible job. The installer told you what the installer's warranty was when you agreed to hire the installer and that is all the installer is liable for.
