A: Classic Bronze Resources guarantees all of our products for life. That means that should a product fade, break or contain any defect, we will refinish or replace the defective materials at no cost to you, as long as the plaque is installed in its original location. Classic Bronze Resources will not cover your cost of removal, re-installation or any subsequent work done on the mounting surface.
