Download PDF 

Fraser Specialty Products Ltd. (Fraser) hereby warrants that for a period of ten (10) years from the date of original purchase, when installed according to the “Fraser Wood Siding Installation Guide” (including Storage Guidelines), and maintained as per the “Fraser Maintenance Guide” (both documents available at www.fraserwoodsiding.com), the coating on this product will not peel, blister or crack due to normal weathering and exposure. This warranty is void if the product comes into direct contact with the ground, foundations, adjacent structures (eg. decks, docks) or is immersed in water. This warranty does not cover any other defects other than those previously noted, such as defects due to careless handling, extractive bleeding, mildew, touch-up misapplication or natural occurring defects.

Within ten (10) years of the purchase date, upon notification and validation of the complaint by Fraser Specialty Products Ltd., and at its sole discretion, Fraser shall compensate the original owner of the building for only the quantity of stain necessary to recoat the material involved. Fraser reserves the right to inspect the materials prior to any repairs being undertaken. The owner will be solely responsible for the cost of any repairs undertaken without the written agreement of Fraser. Only the affected areas as validated by Fraser Specialty Products Ltd. will be covered. Fraser reserves the right to void all warranties if our installation and maintenance requirements are not strictly adhered to. Installation requirements can be found on the web site (www.fraserwoodsiding.com). Maintenance requirements are available upon request. Contact us by phone or web for more information.

This warranty applies only to Select and Premium Finished Cedar Shingles. Fading and discoloration caused by normal weathering and exposure are natural characteristics of solid coatings and therefore do not constitute product failure and are not covered under this warranty. Under normal conditions the expected maintenance cycle for a product of this nature is 7-9 years depending on exposure. Solid coating applications subject to a southern or western exposure tend to fade or discolor more rapidly and may require maintenance in less than 7-9 years. Variations in colour are inherent in all solid coatings and are not a manufacturing defect.

FADING AND NORMAL WEAR ARE NOT MANUFACTURING DEFECTS AND ARE NOT COVERED BY THIS WARRANTY.
