Get New Deck or Patio Warranties in Writing

by James Florence


Most quality deck and patio contractors offer some type of warranty on the materials that are used to build their products. Ask that the details of the warranty be provided to you in writing. This information should include:

  • The patio and deck contractor’s name and physical address.
  • The products and parts of the deck or patio that are covered. This should also include whether the contractor will replace or repair your deck or patio in the event of a product failure.
  • Your responsibility if you place a warranty claim (i.e., if you have to pay for labor or materials, or if you are required to pay a prorated amount).
  • Terms, limitations, and exclusions on the materials and workmanship.
  • If the warranties are transferable to the new owner if you sell your home.
