We are convinced that Country Estate’s® non-prorated 50-year Warranty is the industry’s strongest warranty.
If you find a major manufacturer’s published warranty on PVC fencing that you feel will better protect your investment than Country Estate’s published warranty, submit your request to us in writing along with a copy of the competitor’s warranty and we will warrant our product using the competitor’s warranty rather than ours.
