Quality materials coupled with proper installation methods are a hallmark of resilient building projects. At Huber Engineered Woods, we are confident in the performance of our products and want you to be, too. We offer product warranties to provide residential and commercial building teams protection to match our high product performance standards. Here is a quick overview of our residential and commercial warranties for the AdvanTech, ZIP System, EXACOR™, Huber Blue™ and Huber Blue Plus™ product lines. Limitations and restrictions apply and may vary from warranty to warranty, so be sure to read the specifics of your applicable product warranty for full details. Registration and/or a preconstruction meeting may be required to access the benefits of some warranties.

Residential Projects

AdvanTech® Subflooring Products

When you combine AdvanTech® or AdvanTech™ X-Factor panels attached to engineered joists or trusses with deformed fasteners (e.g. ring-shank nails or screws) and AdvanTech™ subfloor adhesive, you get an Advantech Subfloor Assembly with a panel-to-joist connection so strong, it’s backed by a Squeak-Free Guarantee[1]. With the over 20 years of proven jobsite performance of AdvanTech panels, combined with the powerful bond of AdvanTech subfloor adhesive at work in your Advantech Subfloor Assembly, you can rest assured you won’t hear a squeak in your single-family, duplex and townhome projects. See our Squeak-Free Guarantee for full details.

When it comes to subflooring products, AdvanTech products are requested by name for their well-known ability to stand up to tough jobsite conditions. Backed by a Lifetime Limited Warranty and a 500-Day No-Sanding Guarantee, you can trust that your job will be protected against rework from panel swelling, flaking or delamination.

ZIP System Building Enclosure Products

ZIP System® sheathing and flashing products are a revolutionary approach to streamlining air and water management in structural wall and roof assemblies. Panels feature an integrated water-resistive barrier and, when combined with ZIP System tape, form a continuous water and air barrier. Whether you’re using a combination of ZIP System sheathing and tape or liquid flash in wall or roof applications, our products are backed by a 30-year limited warranty and can be exposed during construction without a finished roof or wall covering for up to 180 days. Check out our ZIP System residential wall warranty or ZIP System residential roof warranty to review the full terms and conditions.

Multifamily and Light-Commercial Projects

All of our products come backed by limited warranties for specified applications. Help protect your multifamily or light commercial projects and access enhanced warranty benefits such as warranty transferability options through our Enhanced Experience program. To qualify for the Enhanced Experience, register your eligible multifamily, commercial, or other eligible project online and, if required by the specific product warranty, attend a preconstruction meeting. Find details on the warranty terms and conditions for each product by application on the warranty pages linked throughout below.

EXACOR™ Magnesium Oxide Panels

The latest innovation from Huber Engineered Woods are our EXACOR™ Magnesium Oxide (MgO) panels. Whether used as a replacement for gypsum underlayment in subflooring or underlayment applications, or as exterior wall sheathing in certain fire-rated wall assemblies, through the Enhanced Experience EXACOR users may be eligible for up to a 10-year limited warranty[2] with limited transferability benefits. Project registration and completion of a preconstruction meeting are required to qualify. Find details on the warranty terms and conditions for each product by application on the warranty pages linked throughout below.

AdvanTech® Sheathing and Subflooring Applications

When it comes to our products, it’s not just about the build; it’s about trust. The original high-performance engineered wood solution to perform above PS-2 wood panel code standards[3], AdvanTech® and AdvanTech™ X-Factor subflooring and sheathing panels are backed by a Lifetime Limited Warranty and a 500-day No Sanding Guarantee. When your eligible multifamily or light commercial project is registered through the Enhanced Experience program, you can also receive limited warranty transferability.

ZIP System® Wall and Roof Applications

ZIP System® sheathing and flashing materials are a game changer when it comes to streamlining air and water management in the building envelope for your multifamily, commercial and townhome projects. ZIP System sheathing and flashing products come backed with a 30-Year Limited Warranty and a 180-Day Exposure Guarantee for roof and wall applications. By combining one of our integrated sheathing panel options with ZIP System tape or liquid flashing, teams can achieve structural performance, a water-resistive barrier (or roof underlayment) and continuous air barrier installation in fewer steps than traditional layered approaches. A limited transferable warranty option and additional terms are available, when you register your eligible project and attend a preconstruction meeting. See the ZIP System Wall and ZIP System Roof Commercial Warranties for full details.
