This system also provides peace of mind for the apartment owners as it carries a high 15-year performance Guarantee, as well as a 5-year Workmanship Warranty with a Resene-registered plasterer. “It also comes complete with our premium Resene Construction Systems EdgeSeal Flashing suite for extra security from water penetration.
