US Steel Doubling Warranties on Galvalume Coils

US Steel is increasing the warranty policy on Galvalume-coated coils.

US SteelThe Pittsburgh-based steelmaker said it is doubling the standard limited warranty policy for Galvalume-coated coils used in nonresidential and residential building construction.

The new warranties will range from 40-60 years vs. 20-25 years for existing warranties, the company said in a statement.  

“At US Steel, we understand and share the commitment of our customers and their customers who demand long performing, environmentally friendly building materials that are high quality and cost-effective,” said Ken Jaycox, US Steel SVP and chief commercial officer.

The company said the new warranties apply to coils shipped on or after Jan. 1, 2023, with heavier coating weights receiving longer warranties. Also, pre-painted products receive an additional 10 years of coverage.
