Finishing Warranties


DECO Australia finishes are of the highest quality, and with proper care, they will last a long time. Warranty certificates are available for our signature finishes to give you peace of mind about the durability and longevity of your chosen finish. The length of your warranty will depend on the finish you choose, the material it is applied to and the application it will be used in (including environmental/weather conditions), in accordance with the relevant Australian Standards. The warranty application is required at the time of purchase to ensure a warranty assessment of the job is completed and a certificate can be issued.


Our sublimated, powder coat finishes, including our DecoWood®, DecoArt® and DecoVogue® ranges are available with a 12-year warranty* with conditions as set out in the Australian Standard AS 3715. This warranty covers peeling, flaking, chipping, change of colour (outside of allowable limits) and gloss level.

It is important you clean your finished products regularly in accordance with AS 3715, using approved cleaning products, and record the cleaning undertaken. Cleaning requirements will depend on the location and characteristics of your product, such as the weather conditions it is exposed to.

*NB: In extreme corrosivity environments a 6-year warranty is offered in accordance with AS 4213.
