Post-Tension Structural Warranty


Hi guys, I'm getting ready to receive my concrete license. I've worked with post tension for some years, learned it with my dad, but he still is the master of it all. Anyways, I'm from AZ and I know that most workmanship standards are covered for 2 years like minor cracks and repairs for any trade. We're wondering what the structural warranty for a post-tension slab should be though. Any ideas? I've heard 4-10 years, but I haven't ran across a "concrete" time period for the structural warranty, no pun intended.

You'll have to probably speak to a lawyer

What good is a post tensioned slab if it can fail after 4-10 years?

Good point. Although, when it comes to a written warranty, things get tricky. You know, what if the slab is at a coffee manufacturing facility, where water and chemicals are being spilled on the floor all day

Your license laws should tell you that. I know in Cali structural defects have to be covered for 10 years. Other defects are covered for at least 4.

That's residential.
