The Guarantee Beneficiary is responsible, at their own cost, for keeping timber framed windows maintained in accordance with this guarantee. This means that the Guarantee Beneficiary must -at least once in every 24 month period- instruct a maintenance firm to maintain the timber framed windows. The maintenance firm must check and re-paint the timber frames; and provide the Guarantee Beneficiary with records of such maintenance (to include receipts evidencing that maintenance was carried out; and records setting out the type of work carried out and the materials and consumables used). For avoidance of doubt, the Guarantee Beneficiary must not undertake such maintenance themselves.

 

The paint used in repainting must be a suitable weatherproof wood paint; which itself must be applied over a primer undercoat in accordance with the instructions provided alongside the paint. The primer and paint used must themselves, when used together, be of a kind that carries a guarantee against cracking or peeling for at least the remaining period of this guarantee.
