You just bought your dream car. It’s only natural that you want to warranty (or an extended warranty) to come with it, especially when you’re aware that it’s going to be expensive to get repairs done. Sounds familiar, right?

Most of us tend to think that warranties are necessary for vehicles and electronics. However, we usually miss out an important type of asset which we should consider getting protection for: the paint that we use for our house.

As homeowners, we want the exterior of our walls to look presentable. Every few years, we would invest our money in repainting work. Now imagine seeing our paint start to peel off within a few weeks.

We would need to spend a hefty amount to get it repainted again—and within such a short period of time too!

So just like buying a laptop, we need assurance for our paints, and this is where Nippon Paint’s  7-year warranty for wall comes in. That’s right—besides quality paint, they also provide 7 years warranty for walls, as they know how concerned homeowners are and the importance of maintaining their home. Everyone wants their house to keep looking nice for a long time, after all!

Curious how you can get this warranty and how it protects you? Read on!

The warranty is available for those who buy the Nippon Paint Weatherbond range, which is an excellent paint choice if you want to protect your walls from fungus growth and Malaysia’s unpredictable weather.

The warranty is applicable when the paint you’ve used experiences the following defects within 7 years of the effective date that’s stated in your receipt:

#1 Peeling

Peeling happens when the film peels away or removes itself from the substrate. Some causes of paint peelings are high humidity, water and dirty surface. However, the warranty does not cover peeling issues caused by improper surface preparation (e.g old paint film wasn’t completely removed before the wall was repainted).


#2 Cracking

Another condition that allows you to use the warranty is when you can see visible hairline cracks with in the paint film. Hairline cracks happen due to the expansion and contraction of wall surface. It also occurs when you’ve failed to properly prepare the wall surfaces before painting.

Keep in mind that warranty is only applicable to cracking issues that’s not caused from substrate or structural defects and improper preparation.

#3 Fungus

You’re able to utilise the warranty when there’s fungus growth within the paint film. Normally, fungus grows when there’s a lot of condensation on the walls, high humidity and the presence of leaking pipes near or inside the walls.

However, it’s best to take note that the warranty doesn’t cover fungus growth caused from high humidity, water seepage, dirt accumulation, high moisture or constant dampness within the walls.

While a warranty will certainly help ease your worries, it’s always important to remember to take the right steps to protect your walls.

As you’ve noticed, the warranty does not cover damages resulting from natural events such as high humidity, condensation and improperly prepared surfaces.

So, be proactive and take measures to protect the walls yourself. Prepare the surfaces properly before painting—remember to use a sealer, which will ensure proper adhesion of paint film and delivers long-lasting colours. You should also use high quality paint for your exterior walls to withstand such conditions.
