Warranty & Maintenance

Fundamentally, COLORSTEEL® is an easy-care product designed to look after itself. If you’ve picked the right product for your environment, and had it installed correctly, you can rest assured that you’re protected by something that’s been designed to stand the test of time.

Of course, like any material that’s exposed to the elements, a little bit of maintenance is always required. Regularly conducting this maintenance will help keep your warranty valid, and will ensure you get the longest life possible out of your roof.

Fortunately, Mother Nature helps out, with rainwater taking care of much of your roof maintenance. Anything else that needs to be done depends on several factors, the most notable of which is your proximity to the coastline.
