SAN CLEMENTE, Calif. – Stego Industries, LLC, the construction industry leader in below-slab barrier materials, announced Monday a first-of-its-kind warranty for its line of STEGO WRAP vapor barriers and retarders: a Life of the Building warranty.
This limited warranty is effective immediately and retroactive to purchases of Stego Wrap vapor barriers and vapor retarders since Jan. 1, 2018. The vapor barriers and vapor retarders covered by the limited warranty are:
- Stego Wrap 20-mil Vapor Barrier
- Stego Wrap 15-mil Vapor Barrier
- Stego Wrap 10-mil Class A Vapor Retarder
- Stego Wrap 10-mil Class C Vapor Retarder
“No company can match Stego’s record of 20 years protecting the foundations of buildings without a single claim of failure,” said Stego Vice President of Sales Jeremy Clark. “We want our stakeholders to know that when they’re solidifying their specifications with Stego Wrap, Stego brings not only an unmatched track record of proven performance but also an express warranty in support of your building.”
Stego’s Life of the Building limited warranty reinforces another “first” in the construction industry, and follows another Stego-only benefit for its customers: its unmatched INSTALLATION SUPPORT PROGRAM that provides access to Stego’s network of full-time experts to consult in the design of a below-slab water vapor protection system and certification of installation through on-site or virtual reviews. The program comes with a site review letter certifying the installation. No other vapor barrier company offers such a service, at no cost.
Already the most-specified vapor barrier in North America, Stego Wrap vapor barriers and retarders protect some of the most sensitive building projects of the last 20 years.
“The Life of the Building limited warranty reinforces the mission of Stego since its inception in my garage 20 years ago,” said Stego Industries Founder and CEO Paul J. Blasdel. “We have educated our stakeholders about the dangers of below-slab water vapor to their projects, revolutionized solutions to solve the issues plaguing the industry, and we want them to know we will back up the performance of STEGO WRAP for as long as the building is standing. We will never cut corners on our customers, never skimp on materials, and never compromise the quality of our products at the expense of your building.”
Stego Wrap vapor barriers and vapor retarders are sold through a distribution network across North America and internationally.
Stego recommends installation of Stego Wrap per ASTM E1643 and in accordance with all site-specific recommendations of the project’s design team. Stego Wrap is specifically engineered to be installed in conjunction with its proprietary accessories, including Stego Tape, Stego Crete Claw® Tape, StegoTack® Tape, Stego Mastic, along with BEAST® concrete accessories to protect their installation from punctures.
