Ameristar’s Montage Warranty

Ameristar’s Montage® welded ornamental fences are manufactured from the highest quality materials by skilled craftsmen to meet the highest standards of workmanship in the industry. Galvanized steel framework is subjected to a multi-stage pretreatment/wash (with zinc phosphate), followed by a duplex cathodic electro-coat system consisting of an epoxy primer, which significantly increases corrosion protection, and an acrylic liquid topcoat, which provides the protection necessary to withstand adverse weathering effects.

The electro-coated surface on all Montage welded ornamental panels and posts are guaranteed under normal and intended usage, against cracking, peeling, chipping, blistering or corroding commencing with the original purchase date and extending according to the applications defined in the table below. Normal and intended usage does not include physical damage, abrasion, or heavy salt spray exposure to the protective coating.

The following acts and/or omissions will void the subject warranty:
• Damage to the product caused by the property owner by use of landscape, gardening equipment, chemicals that may cause damage, and/or water sprinklers with high mineral content;
• Damage caused by adhesion of chicken wire, chain link mesh, welded wire, or other similar substance to the product;
• Damage caused by allowing plant life of any sort to grow directly upon or in contact with any portion of the product or sap from trees;
• Any alteration to the product itself by the property owner including any on-site cutting or welding; and/or, failure to follow any and all maintenance instructions provided by Ameristar® at the time of sale to the original purchaser even if these instructions are not forwarded to the ultimate claimant under this warranty.
• When cutting Montage immediately seal the exposed surfaces by 1) Removing all metal shavings from the cut area 2) Applying zinc-rich primer to thoroughly cover cut edge and drilled hole and, after letting dry, 3) Applying two (2) coats of custom finish spray paint matching fence color. Failure to seal exposed surfaces per steps 1-3 above will negate warranty.
• If contractor uses non-Ameristar parts/components, this will negate the warranty.

Ameristar Montage welded ornamental fences are also guaranteed for the same period of time against defects in workmanship or materials. Should any Montage welded ornamental panel or post manufactured by Ameristar fail in accordance with any of the above conditions, Ameristar warrants to the original purchaser their redemption through replacement, renewal or issuance of a pro-rated credit. The choice of redemption method is solely at the discretion of Ameristar. If the pro-rated alternative is chosen, the amount will be based on the original cost of materials at the date of purchase multiplied by the appropriate time and exposure factor from the table below:

Application / Length of Warranty

Fence Installations 0 to 1 Mile from Salt Water Coast Line / 5 Years

Fence Installations 1 Mile to 10 Miles from Salt Water Coast Line / 10 Years

Fence Installations Over 10 Miles from Salt Water Coast Line / 20 Years

Notice of failure under the conditions of this warranty shall be sent to Ameristar or its authorized representative, in writing, together with proof of purchase and shall specify the nature of the defect and when it was first observed as well as photographs of current site conditions. Should the fence be improperly installed, Ameristar shall not be responsible for guaranteed performance or appearance of the material. Neither does this guarantee apply when failure or damage is due to improper use or application, abuse or misuse, salt spray exposure (see Table and Note above), vandalism, or acts of God. Ameristar reserves the right to inspect the material to determine validity of the claim.
