To guarantee you’re satisfied with the outcome of your projects, we offer two main types of warranties. Not sure which one is right for you? No problem – we’ve got the guide you’ve been looking for.

Here are the two types of warranties Waard provides, plus their recommended uses.


This warranty is best for painted products. All of Waard’s painted metal products match well with a Finish Warranty, including our standing seam roofs and wall panels.

The Finish Warranty covers these products against defects and premature fading. Its benefit is total reassurance that your metal roof, wall panels, and edge metal will look good as new for as long as possible. The warranty length is based on the paint and/or Galvalume coating used under the paint.

What are the benefits?
  • You are protected in case of premature fading or corrosion.
  • An additional warranty can be applied to the substrate – a.k.a. the material under the paint – to protect against premature corrosion and breakdown of the base metal.
  • A variety of warranty lengths are available.
What warranty lengths does Waard offer?
  • 40 years for Kynar paint in general conditions
  • 25 years for Kynar paint for projects on the coast
  • 20 years for Kynar paint for projects in the Caribbean


This type of warranty covers the product’s ability to keep out water and is best for standing seam roofs. Typical warranty lengths in this category are anywhere from 5 to 35 years.

Waard currently offers two subtypes of weathertight warranties:

  • Limited Weathertight Warranties
  • No Dollar Limit Weathertight Warranties
What are Limited Weathertight Warranties?

These warranties cover repairs – up to a point. They match the price of the roof materials and initial installation. For example, a Limited Weathertight Warranty would cover $50,000 in repairs on a roof that originally cost $50,000. This limit applies to each repair needed during the length of the warranty; if the limit is reached for one repair, it is not depleted – another repair needed later on will have the same amount of coverage.

Duration options available for Limited Weathertight Warranties are 5 years, 10 years, 15 years, 20 years, 25 years, 30 years, and 35 years.

What are No Dollar Limit Weathertight Warranties?

These warranties cover repairs – with no maximum dollar amount. They cover the total cost of repairs for a roof, even if that total is more than what the roof originally cost. This applies to any and all repairs required during the warranty period, even if multiple issues arise.

Duration options available for No Dollar Limit Weathertight Warranties are 10 years, 15 years, 20 years, 25 years, 30 years, and 35 years.


The price of our warranties are typically calculated by the size (square feet of coverage) of the project.
