Warranties

The Butler Warranty Program consists of two parts:

  1. A basic Buildings Division Warranty with material and workmanship provisions applied to all Butler furnished components and systems.
  2. A Roof Weathertightness Endorsement for premium roof products subject to certain qualifying procedures and a schedule of charges.

 

Building Division Warranty

The standard Butler Manufacturing Warranty covers all materials supplied by Butler Manufacturing for a period of three years, or an optional five years. Exceptions are for Butler-Cote® 500 finish system on painted galvanized panels, which are warranted for 25 years, and certain other components, as listed in the warranty document, for 2, 3, or 5 years. See the warranty document for applicable terms, conditions, and details of warranty coverage and limitations.
