Earlier this year, Woodhouse and Dulux announced their new strategic partnership for the paint priming of Woodhouse Weatherproof ™ timber product range.
One of the first initiatives to be announced as part of the new partnership is the extension of the Woodhouse Weatherproof ™ warranty to cover both the product and the paint coating system from paint failure too due to cracking, peeling, flaking and adhesion for a period of 25 years.
If a Woodhouse Weatherproof ™ product exhibits failure due to termite or insect borer attack, fungal decay, or if the primer causes applied premium exterior acrylic paints to break down within this timeframe, the affected product will be remedied or replaced according to the specified terms in the product guarantee. It leads the industry with its level of cover and provides total peace of mind for the consumer.
The Woodhouse Weatherproof ™ timber is finger jointed New Zealand radiata pine that is LOSP treated and pre-primed with pink Dulux Industrial coating. It is the premier external finger jointed product used for structural and decorative applications. This includes handrails & balustrades, cladding & lining boards, screening, fencing, fascia, dressed all round (DAR), structural F7 and GL8 laminated beams and posts.
Woodhouse Timber CEO, Mark Woodhouse, said, “Our reputation has been built around the quality and longevity of our products. We are excited that we can now extend the Woodhouse Weatherproof ™ warranty which already covered fungal decay and termite attack to include a 25-year cover for paint failure too due to cracking, peeling, flaking and adhesion. It highlights Dulux’s confidence in both our and their product plus a shared customer focus. None of our competitors offer this level of protection.”
Dulux Industrial Coatings Brand Manager James MacDonald said, “We are pleased we have been able to work with Woodhouse to offer an extended 25-year warranty on the Woodhouse Weatherproof range to consumers which will provide them with the confidence and peace of mind that Woodhouse Weatherproof ™ products will last for years to come”.
