What’s Covered by the Standard Cotton State Barns Warranty?

Cotton State Barns warrants to the purchaser that upon delivery its products are free of defects with respect to both craftsmanship and materials, and that Cotton State Barns will repair or replace any component that does not provide reasonable service under normal use for a period of six (6) years from the date of purchase of a new barn. Pre-owned buildings and buildings that are discounted 20% or more are sold as-is and no warranty applies.

Certain actions can and will void this Warranty, which include but are not limited to alterations or modifications of any kind, such as adding ramps, steps, ladders, decks, electrical wiring, or other modifications that have been installed by the customer and/or another party.

Cotton State Barns’ products may include materials, accessories, or parts that a supplier or manufacturer of those materials, accessories, or parts may offer warranties for. Cotton State Barns makes no warranties whatsoever with respect to materials, accessories, or parts incorporated into any storage building whereby the supplier or manufacturer of those materials, accessories, or parts have warranties on such materials, accessories, or parts that exceed the warranty set forth above. Cotton State Barns assumes no liability for said materials, accessories, or parts, and the purchaser of the barn must assert any claim under such warranties against any such supplier or manufacturer. At the sole discretion of Cotton State Barns, Cotton State Barns may decide to include under its Warranty the materials, accessories, or parts from other manufacturers described herein.

All Warranty Coverage shall be determined by Cotton State Barns after its own examination and upon its own satisfaction that any warranty claim merits Warranty Coverage. Once all warranty-covered repairs are completed, the completion shall constitute fulfillment of all liabilities and obligations of Cotton State Barns under this Warranty.

The Cotton State Barns Limited Lifetime Warranty

Our Limited Lifetime Warranty covers all pressure-treated materials with respect to termite damage and fungal decay. All other warranty limitations contained above and herein remain in effect.

Certain Restrictions May Apply

This Warranty  DOES NOT  cover the following::

Normal wear or aging of any kind for any Cotton State Barns product or any component of a Cotton State Barns product. This may include, but is not limited to, cosmetic changes in the appearance of wood, metal, paint, stain, sealant, glass, or other products that are not structural in nature.

Damage caused by any misuse, alteration, neglect, improper maintenance, or abuse not specifically described above or herein; this warranty does not cover lost or missing keys.

Damage caused by earthquakes, earth movements, acts of God (or other natural events), rain, snow, snow loads, hail, freezing, wind (regardless of whether the barn has a wind-load package), fire, water, flood (or any other weather-related event), accident, theft, vandalism, or any other such casualty which is customarily covered by Homeowners’ Insurance. In addition, this Warranty does not cover any costs or damages related to mold or mildew.

Water sealants, nor damages that may result from the failure of a water sealant to prevent moisture-related damage. Our water sealants can last up to two (2) years under normal conditions, but the duration of their effectiveness is sometimes lessened due to various factors, which may include but are not limited to, exposure to sunlight, salt water, or extended wet conditions.

Certain flooring conditions, such as gaps in the seams of our treated CDX-grade flooring (which sometimes result from the normal treatment process), knotting, or other appearance-related issues.

Floor damage that has resulted from exceeding floor load limitations.

Broken windows or glass not reported at the time of the initial delivery and setup.

Leveling issues resulting from ground site conditions. When Cotton State Barns’ products are “out-of-level”, or become “out-of-level”, Cotton State Barns reserves the right to determine if such a circumstance has resulted from ground site conditions. Cotton State Barns makes no Warranty, nor accepts any responsibility, for ground site conditions that may cause a structure to not be level. Furthermore, other circumstances that may arise from a structure being out-of-level (such as sticking or dragging doors, sticking windows, or problems with other components that are not otherwise defective) are not covered under this Warranty, nor is the cost of any trip (or trips) made to re-level a barn that is out-of-level due to ground site conditions.

Damages or costs of any kind to (or associated with) the barn’s contents (regardless of value), nor does it cover any other personal property. In no circumstance does this Warranty cover any loss of income or revenue (whether commercial or otherwise), nor does it cover any loss or damage that may result from loss of use. Furthermore, UNLESS PROHIBITED BY STATE LAW, ANY AND ALL IMPLIED WARRANTIES ARE EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMED, INCLUDING ANY WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR ANY PARTICULAR PURPOSE, and the sole warranty provided is the express limited warranty herein stated.

Cotton State Barns is expressly not liable and accepts no responsibility in the event that any of its products do not meet “expectations” that are not specifically related to defects in craftsmanship or materials.

Additional Limitations Regarding Pre-Owned and/or Discounted Barns

This Warranty is limited with respect to Pre-Owned and/or Discounted Buildings*, and specifically does not cover cosmetic changes or imperfections with respect to Pre-Owned and/or Discounted Buildings*, or any other issue with respect to Pre-Owned and/or Discounted buildings (such as aging or damages) that was or may have been the reason for any discounted pricing*.

However, Cotton State Barns may sometimes warranty a pre-owned and/or discounted building for a period of six (6) years from the serial number date for the following:

  • Roof leaks, provided the leak is not caused by a nullifying exclusion expressed in this warranty, or is the reason for a discounted price.
  • Any material or craftsmanship issues that, in Cotton State Barns’ sole discretion, are deemed to be unsound but were not a reason for any discounted pricing.

*Discounted buildings are defined as any building, new or used, that was sold for less than what Cotton State Barn’s current retail pricing was at the time of sale.

(Pre-Owned barns and/or Discounted Barns are sometimes sold ‘as is’, and some warranties may not apply, in part or in whole.)
