JDD Inc. guarantees its product to be free from defects of workmanship. We take great care to construct our furniture in a manner that allows the wood to shrink and expand, but due to environmental elements and relative humidity, wood will sometimes expand and shrink. Damage claims of this nature will be assessed on an individual basis if they are received within three months. Our metal finishes have a clear finish to protect from premature aging, but some natural patina to the metal finish over time is to be expected. Should any warranty claims arise, please contact our office to determine the best remedy for the situation. Valid claims outside of Southern California may be contracted by JDD Inc. to a local authorized repair facility in your area. We do NOT accept returns without written authorization from our office.
