Specific terms of Colonial Bronze’s Limited Lifetime Warranty Information

    • All Colonial Bronze products produced in one or more of our finishes other than Unlacquered Polished Brass (3A) and Unlacquered Satin Brass (4A) are protected by our Finishes for Life™ limited lifetime warranty. 
    • We warrant to the original purchaser that any product protected by our warranty will be free from tarnishing, discoloration, and pitting for the life of the product, subject to normal wear and tear. Scratches or other normal signs of use are not covered by this warranty. Should any product covered by the warranty fail, we will, at our option, repair or replace it. 
    • Any customization of a standard Colonial Bronze finish or a custom created finish is not covered by this warranty. The use of metal polishes (Flitz®, Brasso®, etc.) will void the warranty because most metal polishes will damage the protective coating or even the metal itself, leaving the finish unprotected.
    • The Finishes for Life™ warranty does not apply to use in an exterior setting.2

NOTE: Our obligation under this warranty extends solely to the replacement or repair of the hardware at our option and does not extend to any costs incurred to remove or reinstall the product.

 2. No agent or representative of Colonial Bronze Company has the authority to waive, alter, or supplement these warranties; make any representation or warranty not contained herein; or extend these warranties to other than the original end user of the product.

Colonial Bronze is not liable for indirect, incidental, or consequential damages caused by the use of its products. This limitation includes, but is not limited to, the cost of removal and/or reinstallation, shipping damages, damages occurring during or after installation or removal, damages from chemical use or improper cleaning or polishing agents, and damages from careless handling.

Caring for your Finishes for Life:

    • To properly clean your Colonial Bronze products crafted in a finish that is protected by Colonial Bronze’s Finishes for Life™ protective coat, use a non-abrasive, damp cloth. Liquid dishwashing soap can be used if needed. Do not use abrasive cleansers: they will scratch the protective coating, damage its clarity, and void your tarnish-free warranty. Do not use any metal-polishing compounds (Flitz®, Brasso®, etc.)—the use of such products will damage the protective coating and void your warranty.
    • To refresh the appearance of your Colonial Bronze products crafted in a finish that is unlacquered1 we suggest using a soft, damp cloth for regular cleaning. If necessary, a mild liquid dishwashing soap can be applied. For enhancing the shine of these living finishes, we recommend using a non-abrasive polish such as Bar Keepers Friend® cleanser. Avoid using metal polishing compounds such as Flitz® or Brasso®, as they may scratch the hand-worked surface.

1. Colonial Bronze’s unlacquered finishes are: Unlacquered Polished Brass (3A), Unlacquered Satin Brass (4A), Polished Nickel (14), Satin Nickel (15), Polished Chrome (26), and Satin Chrome (26D).
