Our Warranty Information

Your curbing has a one-year warranty against defects in materials and workmanship. Repairs of the affected area(s) will be done at no charge if the materials we used or the manner of installation by our workmen caused the defect.

Expectations to Have the Best Experience with Your New Curbing and Be Covered for Warranty:

Before Curbing:

  • Please keep sprinklers in the area off for 2 days prior to your installation date
  • Landscape curbing is best installed prior to the installation of irrigation lines, but not necessary. (Our landscape contractor customers always have us come in prior to trenching so that sprinkler heads can be installed right up against the wall of the curbing and so appropriate coverage areas can be determined.)
  • Please provide access to your job site and keep your pets away from the curbs for the duration of the installation.
  • Ensure that all other groundwork or boulder placement has occurred prior to our crew’s arrival for installation.
  • Be sure to plainly mark all sprinkler heads and lines, telephone wires, cable TV, or other buried items. Maritime Curbing Limited is not responsible for any damage by its crew or equipment to any buried items or to unmarked sprinklers.

During Curbing:

  • We make every effort to keep and leave the jobsite clean and neat. During the process some excess concrete may be present around the areas installed, especially at the starts/stops and around corners. The curbing crew will clean up this excess concrete the same day in most cases or the following day if required.

After Curbing:

  • Your extruded curbing is set to cure upon completion of the project. The concrete curb does not need to be sprayed or misted with water. Such actions will most likely discolour the curb and claims for discoloured or wrong coloured curb will be denied. The curb will not “fall apart” or “crumble” after we have left the jobsite. It is perfect, but vulnerable, when we leave. Make sure your neighbours and family members stay away from the curbing after we have left. The most curious of neighbours will approach your curb within minutes of our crew’s departure. Protect your curb.
  • Keep sprinklers off for at least 2 days following the installation. Excess moisture on or around the curbing will affect the normal curing process. Any excess water around the curbing will hamper the curing process and give it a permanent blotchy look. If it begins to rain within 8 hours after we leave the job, try to cover the curb with plastic. Make sure sprinkler systems are not activated for at least 48 hours. Irrigation, backwash from pool, condensation lines, or rain can damage the curb during the first 48 hours.
  • Take extra precaution to keep pets, children, vandals, and objects away from the curb for at least 24 hours. It will be “hard” to the touch at this point but will still need a few days to completely harden. The curb is like a “sandcastle”. Refrain from testing the “hardness” of the curb.
  • During the first 48 to 72 hours you should avoid direct sprinkler impact on the curbing. Keep water away from curb for 48-72 hours. After 24 hours a mist would not cause any immediate damage, but a sprinkler within a couple of feet could create some pitting in your new edging. And the water itself will discolour your curb.
  • If your curb is damaged after the installation crew has left, we will come back and make the necessary repairs; however, there is a $75.00 minimum charge for this service. We will do the best job possible on this repair; however, repairs rarely look as good as the initial extruded installation.
  • Curbing with colour in it may look “splotchy” for up to 30 days while it is curing. This will go away as it cures. Concrete is darker in colour when it is first laid due to the water content and will lighten up as it dries and cures. After about 30 days, when the curb is fully dry, it will have a more uniform look to it. Although it may take longer due to excess moisture and watering of the lawn.
  • Cracking – Concrete curbing like any other type of concrete can and will crack. We try to control the cracking with expansion joints every two to four feet. If cracking does occur, it should be in the expansion joint. We experience very little cracking in our products; however, if there are any solid cracks out of the joint (over 1/8″, basically the width of a quarter), we will replace the damaged area during the warranty period. A warning, however, is important to note: Repairs can be difficult to make in coloured concrete. It is impossible to get a perfect colour match. Sometimes the “solution is worse than the problem”. A hairline crack is much less noticeable than a patch or discoloration in the curbing.

Warranty Examples

Not Covered by Warranty

The nature of the beast is concrete and it is going to crack. We place control joints every 2 ½’ to 3’ depending on the layout. Basically, we are trying to control where the cracking will occur. If you find a crack in the control joint, this would not be a warranty issue.

Covered by Warranty

This crack is wide enough to accommodate a quarter and therefore is covered under warranty.
