Windward Design Group® offers the following consumer residential and commercial limited warranties, to the original purchaser, with proof of purchase. The residential warranty is not valid for product used in a commercial application. All warranties are valid from the date of purchase, to the original purchaser only. Proof of purchase (original sales receipt with purchase date) is required and photos may also be required to file a warranty claim. Transfer of ownership will void all warranties.

Aluminum Frames

Extruded aluminum frames are warranted against defects in material and workmanship for 10 YEARS RESIDENTIAL/5 YEARS COMMERCIAL. If your frame fails structurally during normal use, Windward Design Group® will repair or replace (at the manufacturer’s discretion) the frame with the same product, at no cost. If the product or frame finish has been discontinued, a similar item will be used. This includes labor/shipping during the first twelve (12) months. Note: Glide replacement is a necessary function in maintaining the furniture and should be accomplished on an annual basis, or more frequently, depending on the level of usage. Replacement glides are available for purchase from Windward. Note that many of our sling dining chairs require additional bracing (i.e. bolt thru) to be warranted for commercial use. Please refer to the catalog and price list for more information on which collections this applies to.
