Minor scratches or marks are not covered under the conditions of Hormann warranty and should be repaired immediately to prevent corrosion and deterioration of the panel.
Corrosive substances such as acids, alkaline, and salts, etc. should be cleaned from the door immediately; failure to do so will result in deterioration of the finish, which will not be covered under Hormann warranty.
Should deterioration of the finish start to occur you will need to repaint your door immediately. Prepare the surface lightly with wet and dry. Then treat with solvent based 2 pack epoxy wash primer and a normal commercial paint (cellulose paint must not be used).

Minor surface damage can easily be repaired using touch up sprays or sticks without invalidating warranties.
