Old Goats, Inc. warrants that the wood components of its Screen Doors shall be free of manufacturing defects in material or workmanship that significantly impair their proper operation and function for fifteen days (15) days from the date of receipt by the customer or its authorized agent.

Since many minor flaws can be repaired or corrected, all items should be inspected thoroughly for such defects upon receipt and before machining, finishing, or installing. Please be aware that finishing and installation of a screen door, constitutes acceptance of the product as it was received by our customer. Any minor flaws or defects that may exist at the time of machining, finishing or installation will not be considered as defective product or claimable once machining, finishing or installing has been completed or fifteen (15) days from the date of delivery has passed. So, please inspect all items thoroughly before the machining, finishing, or installation process takes place. These screen doors are shipped to you unsealed and unfinished. All wood screen doors will expand and contract, these should not be considered defects. All doors are sized to within 1/16" of your specified size, however additional expansion or contraction may alter the door size by as much as 1/8" while adjusting to ambiant humidity, so be sure you allowed for this possibility before you order. Sanding before finishing is required before finishing and installation, therefore we do not warrant against the natural characteristics of the wood or minor variants in the manufacturing process which can be filled or sanded out by the customer, or which may occur in the various conditions encountered from our plant to your finished opening. However, because wood can respond in different ways to the variety of atmospheric and environmental conditions, it is imperative that special attention is given to the screen door and the necessary care and effort taken to protect the screen door in the unfinished state to minimize the potential for problems.
IMPORTANT REQUIREMENTS FOR YOUR WARRANTY:
1. Screen Doors must be installed providing protection from exposure, typically with a standard overhang extending outward a distance equal to one-half its height from the bottom of the door up to the overhang to be covered by this warranty.
2. Any deterioration caused by failure to finish and seal all exposed surfaces and edges of the door within 15 days of delivery are not covered by this warranty. For continued protection, the finish needs to be maintained yearly.
3. Please comply with all of the handling and finishing instructions completely to validate the warranty. The product must be hand- sanded before finishing.
IMPORTANT HANDLING, FINISHING AND INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS:
1. Most finishes on exterior screen doors deteriorate relatively quickly. To insure exterior screen doors receive the protection required, inspect the condition of exterior finish at least once a year and refinish as often as needed to maintain the protective stability of the finish.
2. Screen doors should always be shipped and stored vertically (not leaning).
3. Screen Doors shall not be exposed to excessive heat, dryness, humidity or direct sunlight prior to finishing.
4. Handle screen door with clean gloves and do not drag doors across each other or other surfaces.

6. All hardware locations, preparations and methods of installation must be appropriate for the specific screen door and not interfere with the entry door hardware.
7. All screen doors 7' and under must have three hinges. Doors over 7' must have four hinges. (Exception: 8' Round Top will have three hinges)
8. Prior to finishing, remove all handling marks with 150-grit or finer sandpaper and remove all sanding dust.
9. Apply sealer, primer or first coat of required finish immediately after fitting, cutting for hardware, etc., and before the installation of hardware.
10. ALL EXPOSED SURFACES OF THE SCREEN DOOR MUST BE SEALED, INCLUDING THE TOP, BOTTOM, SIDE EDGES OF THE SCREEN DOOR, DECORATIVE PANELS, AND THE HARDWARE CUTOUTS.
11. NOTE: An interior-grade finishes are NOT a satisfactory product for exterior use.
12. All exterior surfaces — including the top, bottom and sides of the door — must be finish coated with a good quality exterior- grade enamel paint or spar varnish top coat within 15 days of receipt and in compliance with our Finishing Instructions. (AT LEAST 3 COATS OF EXTERIOR GRADE TOP COAT WITH A UV INHIBITOR MUST BE APPLIED.)
