  • Flush pool skimmer boxes are very prone to expanding and contracting due to their proximity to swimming pools. This is not considered a defect; skimmers require regular removal and maintenance to prevent expansion and contraction. This is applicable to both composite and hardwood skimmer boxes. We can provide you with an option for a flush removable stainless-steel skimmer box which is guaranteed not to expand and contract. This is by request only and considered an upgrade to this item.
  • Differences in board thickness and width can sometimes occur, all decking boards including composite can vary in width and thickness, they are subject to thermal expansion and contraction. This can cause expansion between boards and result in an uneven look in the spacing. This is a natural feature and is not considered defective.
  • Timber is a natural product hence there may be variation in colour and grain. Some boards will contain natural features – such as knots and gum veins. Decking boards are prone to having minor surface splits, shatters and opening of the grain, this is a natural feature of the exterior timber and is not considered defect.

  • Stainless steel tension wires may become slightly loose after time, if your project has this element, we have provided you with a tool which you can use to tighten them. This loosening is due to thermal expansion and contraction. Timber can shrink by a few mm which will cause the wires to loosen. They can be simply tightened with tool provided. Please note wires are not suitable for climbing, using as a support of any kind. Tightening of wires is part of your ongoing maintenance and need attention every 6 months or when required.
  • Due to natural expansion and contraction of timber frames and all decking boards, glass pool fence panels can become slightly out of alignment over time, this is not considered a defect.
  • Glass panels installed by Decking Sydney undergo a very strict quality testing process to ensure they meet and exceed national safety regulations.  You can be assured that the glass we install is fit for purpose however glass is a breakable commodity and is not offered warranty after installation. In the case of defects discovery between the period of installation and project completion, the glass shall be replaced.
  • Caring for your frameless glass – Exposure to UV Light, pollution, salt deposits and chemicals can affect the long-term performance of the fence. A gentle monthly clean with a soft brush, warm water and mild detergent followed by a rinse of fresh water will maintain the panels and the finish of the stainless-steel fencing components.
  • Pool fence gate can sometimes drop by a small margin and come out of alignment with the adjacent panel. This can be caused by natural expansion and contraction of timber subframe and deck boards, this is not considered defective.
