One-Year  Work and Materials
Damage resulting from normal wear and tear is excluded from the warranty.


Cedar shakes and shingles that do not meet the acceptable condition shall be repaired.


Some bleed-through of knots or other naturally occurring features can be expected in cedar shakes over time. The reoccurrence of these features through full-covering or opaque stains may be dependent on the direction the roof faces and/or exposure to sunlight.
