Warranty:

  • As wood is a natural substance, we cannot warranty it against normal seasoning (i.e. Warping, Checking, Cracking, Shrinkage, Expansion, twisting,  Knot Holes (knots coming loose or falling out) for No.1 and No.2 Grade lumber.) Mill grading marks may appear on the lumber in the form of grade stamps or chalk/crayon strokes etc.
  • 1 year warranty is classified as a workmanship warranty this includes the assembly and structure

Decking:

  • In regards to water proofing: D6 contracting sub contracts certified roofing companies to install “Torch on Roofing” and “Water Proofing” systems should the project entail this. These items will be highlighted on your estimate as well as on the signed contract of agreement as “Torch on Roofing” or ” Water Proofing” Warranty for these items will be covered under the roofing companies warranty for their products.
  • For exterior elevated deck projects in which storage areas are located beneath D6 Contracting will install “Slate Surface Roll Rooking granular product” this acts as a membrane on top of plywood and below decking, this how ever is not 100% water tight as it is not a water proofing system nor is it a torch on roofing application, This system allows a semi dry storage. 
  • D6 Contracting will not warranty should home owners wish to:
  • Build on top of existing structures such as re-surfacing decks and using the existing structure. As D6 Contracting did not build the structure we cannot prevent against future rot, decay,structural damage, leaking should home owners or clients wish to re surface. Torch on roofing or Water Proofing System is highly recommended when re surfacing decks and will be outlined in estimate/quotation should home owner wish to have this done. 
  • Fencing: re using existing posts; D6 Contracting cannot warranty the fence as we can not predict the life expectancy left in old posts should rot or decay occur and effect the structural integrity of the fence. New fence posts are always recommended when replacing a fence 
  • We suggest that the customer stain the fence immediately to combat the effects of seasoning.
  • All installations will take place as per quotation/signed contract of agreement. Any additions or deletions will be adjusted and billed at per unit pricing and final invoice may vary from estimate amount.

Staining:

Staining for Fence and Decks will be subcontracted by a certified staining/painting company. This will be billed separate by the staining company.
