Door Warranties and BPIR

Guarantee of quality


All Parkwood doors come with a warranty:

  • Timber doors 5 years.
  • Aluminium doors 10 years.
  • Duramax Composite doors 10 years.


Should a defect in our workmanship (other than simple maintenance of what we speak of in this guarantee) develop within the warranty lifetime, we will repair or replace the door, at our discretion, to the re-seller. Parkwood will not consider any defects which fall within the following:

  • A warp shall not be considered a defect unless it exceeds 6mm in the door itself.
  • Natural variations in colour and grain of timber are not considered defects.


Aluminium doors have a 10-year warranty, and powder coat finishes have a 10-year warranty or longer, but this requires a certain level of care, Click here for a guide.
Parkwood’s website and brochures depict only indicative colours. Before confirming your colour choice, we suggest that you request actual samples.


In fully exposed conditions, Duramax Composite Entry Doors are guaranteed for 10 years.
Fiberglass/resin are applied to all edges of the door, so it does not have to be painted in order to be warranted.

When painting or staining your Duramax door, keep these things in mind:

  • The use of dark colours on the door should be avoided if it’s in direct sunlight.
  • Glossy colours should not be selected as they can show a slight ‘wave’ in your door.


Our Parkwood Solid Timber doors are designed to be used in weather-protected situations. Timber is a beautiful natural product, creating a solid, attractive entry door. Nevertheless, if it is left exposed to the elements without adequate protection, it will not last.

Consequently, the door requires the following:

  • A minimum porch roof or protection of 1200mm.
  • Protection from direct sunlight, driving rain, and other extreme conditions. 
  • All 6 faces to be pre-finished (coated) with a film-forming product.
  • A well-maintained coating.

Timber doors need to be sealed (6 sides) within 5 days of receiving the door and full coating applied within 28 days of being sealed. Oils and penetrating stains are not a sealant.
Providing these conditions are met, your Parkwood solid timber door is covered by a 5-year warranty.


The Parkwood Guarantee is VOID if:

  • Oil or penetrating stain is applied as a finish – even if this is recommended by the manufacturer.
  • The timber door does not have sufficient cover (minimum 1.2m).
  • Exposed to long periods of direct sunlight (4 hours or more) this can cause heat cracks.
  • Timber doors are exposed to driving rain.
  • The timber door is finished in a dark colour (Colour requires to have a LRV rating of higher than 40%), as this attracts the heat.


    • Seasonal and geographic variations in atmosphere can cause some shrinkage or expansion in a product – this does not constitute a defect.
    • Natural variations in the colour of timber are not considered defects.
    • Doors should be stored away from direct sunlight in a clean, dry place.


We offer a Full Cover warranty option on all of our doors!

An additional option to the Standard Warranty, which covers replacement of the door if faulty (and meets warranty conditions). With the ‘Warranty Plus Cover’, you can offer peace of mind to your clients for a low cost.

What your standard warranty covers:

  • Door repair or replacement only.

Warranty Plus offers an additional level of assurance which includes:

  • Standard door repair or replacement as outlined in the warranty.
