If necessary, the purchaser must allow ModWood Technologies (or a representative of ModWood Technologies) to enter the property upon which the XTREME GUARD is installed to inspect the defective product.

This warranty is given to the original purchaser of ModWood XTREME GUARD decking materials (Purchaser).

For the purposes of this warranty, a “residential application” is an installation of the product on an individual residence.

If XTREME GUARD that is used in a residential application:

  • fade resistance: fades in colour from light and weathering exposure, as measured by a colour change of more than 5 Delta E (CIE) units; or
  • stain resistance: suffers permanent staining resulting from spills of food or beverage items that would typically be present on a residential deck, or mould or mildew naturally occurring in the environment (provided the substance was removed from the product with soap and water or mild household cleaners within 72 hours after spillage of the food or beverage or first appearance of the mould and mildew),

within 25 years after it is purchased (Warranty Period) then we will at our option either replace the affected product or refund the amount paid for the affected product (as adjusted on the basis of the prorated warranty schedule set out below, where applicable) to the original Purchaser of the product if:

1. it was installed and used (product has been used/installed as per what the product has been described to be used for, as stated on the web site) in accordance with our instructions in a residential application; and
2. within the Warranty Period the original Purchaser provides evidence of the defect, the quantity of ModWood XTREME GUARD affected by the defect and a receipt for the purchase of the defective XTREME GUARD or evidence of the age of the defective XTREME GUARD which establishes the age of the defective XTREME GUARD to our satisfaction,

except in the circumstances set out below. Where XTREME GUARD is replaced under this warranty the replacement XTREME GUARD will be covered by this warranty for the remainder of the term of this warranty.

Please note:- While the product is designed to resist fading and staining, no material is entirely fade or stain proof, particularly when subjected to years of exposure to ultraviolet (UV) rays and the elements, or when spilled substances are not properly cleaned.

Before making a claim under the stain resistance warranty, you must first try to clean the affected area and if this doesn’t work then have the affected area cleaned professionally, using the cleaning procedures specified in our care and maintenance instructions (available online at A receipt showing the area being professionally cleaned must be provided as evidence. Note, ModWood does not reimburse these charges. Purchaser may make a claim under this warranty provided that such claim is made within 30 days after the professional cleaning.

If the Purchaser makes a valid warranty claim during years eleven (11) through twenty-five (25) after the original purchase for a residential application, recovery will be prorated. If we are providing replacement materials, we will replace the percentage listed below of the affected product; or, if we are refunding the purchase price, we will refund the percentage listed below of the amount paid for the affected product
