Armawall Texture Warranties FAQs

Yes, Armawall Texture finishes are covered by a manufacturer's warranty, which covers the material only. The standard warranty is for (7) seven years and is supported by PPG (world leaders in the coatings industry). These are issued as part of a joint warranty system, meaning that the manufacturers warranty will be issued upon the presentation of an applicators warranty for the same property
The manufacturer's warranty covers the manufacturer's products that have been applied to the property and is issued by PPG Architectural Coatings Pty Ltd. The warranty is made out using the properties address, so that if the property is sold in the future, provided that the warranty is still valid it can be maintained by the new owners. The warranty cover's that the products have been supplied in good condition and fit for purpose.
The applicators warranty should cover his workmanship and the that the products have been applied in a professional and tradesman like manner, for any work that he has done on the building. Again the warranty will be made out using the property address and will list the products the applicator has applied. Their warranty will usually run for the same period of time as the manufacturer's warranty, typically 7 years.
There are several ways you can check on your applicator's ability. Firstly ask them for a certificate, these are issued by the larger texture coating manufacturers after a tradesman has attended an application course. You may also want to ask them for addresses of jobs they have done in your area, so you can see the quality of the work. Ask for references, speak to people like the home owners, etc. or call the coatings manufacturer.
