The Snug Cottage Difference
BPPCP plus "E" Coat
Black Polyester Powder Coat over Hot Dipped Galvanized
Snug Cottage Hardware only sells high quality hardware that is extremely rust resistant.
All of our mild steel product is available with a hot dipped galvanized finish, or a
Black Polyester Powder Coat over hot dipped Galvanized or over Stainless Steel (BPPCG).
We sell great product and that is why we are now seeing copies or "knock offs" of our hardware. Unlike competitors, we never powder coat directly over mild steel. Black powder coated hardware is supplied with stainless steel fasteners.
Product that is coated directly over the steel will rust, and usually quite quickly.
Powder coating over a hot dipped galvanized is very difficult. In fact, many powder coating companies will tell you it cannot be done. Snug Cottage works with a top quality powder coater in Detroit Michigan where all of our black over hot dipped galvanized product is applied.
While price is very important to us, High Quality is our primary concern.
If the quality is not there then we do not sell it.
It comes down to the old saying,
"YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR".
Snug Cottage Hardware Warrantee
Snug Cottage Hardware, LLC guarantees our BPPCG product. We will replace free of charge any BPPCG product that breaks and is found defective for the life time of the original purchaser. Product must have been installed and maintained as per instructions supplied with original product.
The black finish on our product is a high quality polyester powder coating. Some dulling of the finish over the years is considered normal. Where steel parts regularly strike other steel parts the powder coat finish will chip or wear thin. This is to be expected and is not considered a defect.
For warrantee claims we request that we are contacted at (800) 637-5427. We will require digital photographs of the defective product or that it be returned to us. If we deem that failure is due to a defect in the product we will replace it free of charge. Shipping charges from Marysville, Michigan will apply.
This warrantee comes into effect Jan. 1, 2010
