2016 5-Year Workmanship Guarantee (Conditions Apply)
From July 2016, Master Painters Services is offering homeowners a written five-year workmanship guarantee when they hire a Master Painter and choose to use one of the Approved Product Lines. Simply ask your contractor to complete the Guarantee Application and forward it to Master Painters Services for acceptance prior to commencement of any work. Under the guarantee, Master Painters Services will ensure that any workmanship defects discovered within five years of completion are remedied up to the value of the lessor of $50,000 incl of GST or the Contract Price. Contact Master Painters Services or Master Painters Members please visit the members area of this site. The key point of difference is that, should your contractor cease trading for any reason, the workmanship is still covered by this document.
