Should a ceiling crack within the 6 year Structural & Workmanship Warranty period, please call our department to discuss further. Cracks caused by damage to the ceiling sheets are not warranted. This can often be caused by ‘After trades’ accessing the ceiling space. These ‘After trades’ may include:
- Antenna installers
- Satellite dish installers
- Air Conditioning contractors
Loose Ceiling Sheets
Ceiling sheets are not covered after the 6 year Structural & Workmanship Warranty period has expired. As they do not affect the Structural Integrity of the home, they are not warranted under any extended warranties, unless they need to be rectified due to the failure of Structural Timbers (Roof Timbers).
After this time it is recommended that you have your ceiling checked independently on an ongoing basis by an accredited ceiling installer to avoid sagging or fallen ceilings.
