Before making any fencing decision, it is always a good idea to understand the warranty claims you’re entitled to by your fencing company. What happens after you have your fence installed by us? At Main Line Fence, we guarantee our workmanship and materials for one year from the installation date.
What Our Warranty Covers
During the installation phase, our team makes sure the posts holding your fence are at proper depth and the soil around it is properly compacted. However, with a freshly installed fence it is not uncommon for the disturbed soil around it to disintegrate, especially after the first winter or in clay soil conditions. In such cases, our team will gladly return and readjust the fence for you without any additional charge.
Main Line Fence also guarantees proper functioning of gates and gate hardware for the first year after its installation. The warranty covers sagging of gates and defects in any hardware that prevents the gates from working. We also guarantee the use of premium material to build the fences which makes our fences durable and long-lasting.
Our Manufacturer’s Extended Warranty
In addition to warranty claims provided by Main Line Fence, your fences are also protected by warranty coverage offered by:
- Jerith Ornamental Aluminum Warranty
- Illusions Vinyl Fence Warranty
- Activeyards Vinyl Fence Warranty
These warranty claims largely cover the protection of your fence for the use of substandard material, as well as any kind of rusting, chipping, peeling or cracks.
Factors Out of Our Control
It is important to remember that an outdoor structure like a fence is likely to be subjected to harsh weather conditions in Maine. This makes our materials susceptible to changes with exposure to the external elements, including aging, weathering, discoloration or fading and other dimensional changes. When factors like this are out of our control, our warranty may not cover related issues.
For our wood fences we use white cedar which might develop cracks or “checking” as the material dries. Although white cedar fences are vulnerable to checking, it does not impact the strength or longevity of a fence, and so is not covered by our warranty. Typically, once a check develops it will not continue to grow.
Additionally, our warranty does not include any damages to the fence caused by vandalism, vehicle damage, climbing, storm or tree damage, swinging on gates or other misuse of gates and gate hardware.
