Colour guarantee

No one wants a faded product on the façade or the roof. VILPE’s products are therefore designed to guarantee colour longevity. Since 2013 VILPE has offered an unrivaled 10-year colour guarantee, meaning they retain their colour as well as the roof or façade itself. During the years, VILPE has developed and refined a recipe which makes the colour of the products last.

In addition to colour warranty, the our products have a 20-year tehcnical warranty.
