Door Warranty

Limited Door Warranty

Subject to the conditions and restrictions listed below, doors manufactured by The Stained Glass Doors Company meet or exceed industry standards and are warranted to be free from defects in material and workmanship as follows:

Warp Damage

Claims due to warp may be deferred for up to 12 months from the date of the claim in order to allow the door the opportunity to return to its original form once it has acclimatised to local humidity and temperature conditions. The deferral will not be counted against the warranty period.

Warp shall not be considered a defect unless it exceeds ¼" in the plane of the door. Warp is measured by placing a straight edge or a taut string on the concave face of the door and determining the maximum distance from the straight edge or string to the door face. This warranty is only valid when the door is properly hung, finished, and is sealed on all six surfaces. In order to be covered by the warranty, warp must occur in the door itself, and not be the result of an improperly installed jamb or a wall out of plumb.

Exclusions to Warranty

  • Any special custom product manufactured according to the customer's specifications
  • Dissatisfaction with the performance or appearance of our finish, or a field-applied finish
  • Dissatisfactions with variations in the color or texture of the wood, as well as knots and knot fill in the wood
  • Damage caused by others, or by any cause outside the control of The Stained Glass Doors Company, including but not limited to damage caused by misuse, abuse, accident, mishandling, or by fire, flood, earthquake, storm, or other acts of nature.
  • Any door that is misused. "Misuse" of a door includes, but is not limited to, using a door on part of a building without providing adequate overhang or an appropriate finish color. Adequate overhang depends on the typical weather conditions of the area where the door is to be used, but at the very minimum means an overhang projecting a distance from the structure equal to one half the distance between the bottom of the door and the bottom of the overhang at the point which is farthest from the door.
  • Doors that are excessively trimmed: more than ½" from the top or more than 1½" from the bottom
  • Damage due to failure to perform normal homeowner's maintenance, including maintaining the finish
  • Product failure due to improper installation
  • Attempts to repair The Stained Glass Doors Company product without prior authorization
  • Panel misalignment which leaves an unstained line along the edge of the panel. This is caused by differences in temperature and humidity, and is not a defect.

  • Cracks and or shakes in any part of the door this is caused by shrinkage which is common in new timber doors this would not be considered a fault with the construction of the door or paint finish , but a natural occurrence under certain conditions of new solid timber doors .

  • Slight expansion and contraction of the door due to changes in temperature and humidity are not defects.
  • Water infiltration
  • Wood sills
  • Doors not sealed on all six surfaces
