CSM warrants that the color-coated finish applied to its steel roofing and siding panels will not, within a period of forty years after installation or forty years and one month after the date of shipment (whichever comes first), crack, check, peel or lose adhesion. This does NOT include minute fracturing, which may occur in proper fabrication of the building parts. Failure due to substrate corrosion is excluded.

Color (fade) ratings are measured in accordance with the standard procedures specified in ASTM-D-2244-02. Color change shall be measured on an exposed painted surface that has been cleaned of surface soils and chalk, and the corresponding values measured on the original or unexposed painted surface. It is understood that fading or color changes may not be uniform if the surfaces are not equally exposed to the sun and elements.
