All of our products are guaranteed for life. We stand behind the quality and craftsmanship of everything we make. We will repair or replace any item that has manufacturing defects. Your Benchkraft product is made by hand, so slight variances and imperfections are not uncommon. These variances will not affect the structural integrity of your item. Instead, we believe they add to the uniqueness and quality of each piece. Drop us a line if you have any questions or warranty claims and we would be happy to help.
