Home > Warranty
All Summerwood sheds, gazebos, cabins, studios, pool cabanas, spa enclosures and garages are covered for a period of two years for defects in materials and workmanship (excluding plans). (View full details on The Summerwood Warranty).
Please note that the following traits are not considered defects:
- Natural characteristics of the wood such as knots, small cracks or splinters
- Expansion and contraction of lumber due to moisture
- Variations in color and grain
Please note that we are not responsible for damage realized when doors are opening out. We recommend inward opening doors to prevent wind damage.
Conditions for Warranty Validation
Assembly: Customers are required to build their structure within 60 days of delivery. This is to prevent any warping or shrinkage of the materials that may result in difficulties with assembly.
In order to confirm that the installation is completed within this timeline, we require that you provide us with finished photos. You may e-mail digital photos to email@example.com, upload your digital photos to us using our photo upload tool, or mail actual prints.
Staining: All structures must be stained according to the terms described in The Summerwood Warranty to validate your warranty. Although it is common to allow cedar to age to a silver/gray tone, unstained wood may draw moisture up from the ground resulting in swelling and splintering - particularly on our 'deluxe' cedar doors.
