General Warranty Information

What is covered?

Smith Creek products are guaranteed to be free from defects in material and workmanship for a period of one (1) year from the date of purchase. We can replace (or send repair parts) at no charge to you during this period.

What is not covered?

Normal wear and tear are not considered a warranty issue (for example, scratches or scuffing of surface finishes). This guarantee does not apply to damages caused by accidents, neglect, or misuse; however, we are always willing to listen if the damage occurs due to unusual circumstances.
