The terms and conditions for Taubmans products are centered around several key guarantees depending on the specific type of product:
Taubmans Endure Interior and Taubmans All Weather Exterior are guaranteed against blistering, flaking, or peeling if applied on suitable and properly prepared surfaces according to printed directions. This guarantee applies to the owner of the house/property to which the paint has been applied for as long as they own the property. However, this guarantee does not cover paint failure caused by factors beyond Taubmans' control, such as environmental factors or incorrect application. If the guarantee is not met, Taubmans will replace the paint or refund your money. However, they are not liable for the cost of labor or any other direct or indirect loss or damage arising from a breach of this guarantee.
25 Year Guarantee
SunProof Exterior is guaranteed under similar conditions as the Lifetime Guarantee and applies as long as the owner owns and lives in the house/property. Proof of purchase is required for this guarantee. This guarantee only applies to residential properties within Australia.
10 And 12 Year Guarantee:
This applies to certain Taubmans paints that are supported by a 10 or 12 year guarantee. The conditions are similar to those of the Lifetime Guarantee and 25 Year Guarantee.
7 Year Guarantee
Taubmans Easycoat Kitchen & Bathroom Paint is guaranteed to resist mould growth caused by airborne spores for 7 years if used in accordance with printed directions and applied to suitable and properly prepared surfaces. This guarantee does not cover mould growth from contaminated substrates or mould problems caused by environmental or underlying structural issues (e.g. localised high humidity, areas of low ventilation, structural damp or water ingress due to leaks), or paint failure caused by other factors beyond Taubmans' control1.
Claiming these guarantees
Customers must write to Taubmans or call their Customer Service number to request a claim form. Customers are responsible for all costs of claiming under these guarantees. These guarantees are in addition to other rights and remedies under Australian law, which cannot be excluded and include the right to a replacement or refund for a major failure.
