Pre-Sales: There are divergent opinions on matters regarding small flock chicken keeping. We will NEVER knowingly mislead anyone about expectations with our products. We develop our recommendations based on our own considerable experiences in small flock chicken keeping, considerable feedback for our national customer base, advice from hired experts and advice from the poultry academic community. We consider ourselves as experts in matters regarding small flock chicken keeping and certainly our own products. With that said, you are ultimately responsible for the safety of your flock and satisfaction of your choice to purchase our products and among other things, your opinion on how many birds belong in any given sized coop or the suitability of a product for your breed. We want happy customers. A big part of that is accurately setting expectations on what we sell and we will endeavor to do that in a way that helps you make the best decision. For bio-security reasons our refund policies are only available for unused products.

Terms & Conditions: We will ship any purchase you make as promptly as possible after funding is confirmed. When you place your order you will be billed in full for your purchase and given a slot in our production schedule. If for any reason we cannot ship your order within 5 business days of you placing your order, such as materials availability, seasonal sales spikes or funding issues, we will notify you using the email address you provided at the time you placed your order so that you can at your sole option choose to keep your order in place, change or cancel your order subject to our order cancellation policies below. Your order confirmation email will state when we expect your coop to ship. If we expect that the shipping of your order will exceed four weeks, we may also place a notice on our web site on the product page to provide additional notice. Orders placed by phone are subject to these Terms & Conditions. Customer items or orders left unclaimed or returned as undeliverable are subject to resale or disposal after 45 days. We expressly reserve the right to at our sole discretion refuse to sell our products to any party at any time for any reason. We may also, at our sole discretion, direct the form of payment that we will accept on a transaction.

Order Cancellations Policy:  So that we can fulfill orders, we commit financial resources in the way of people, materials, tools and shop capacity. Especially in peak demand periods, we spend this money in advance so we can in good faith meet our promised delivery schedules. Further, we are charged by credit card companies for transactions whether fulfilled or cancelled. We reserve the right to charge you up to a 20% order cancellation fee and you agree to not back charge us for any non-refunded monies with your credit card company as the result of any fee you might be charged.

Shipping: Ninety five percent plus (95% +) of the time our shipments go smoothly with no issues. We ship with either FedEx, UPS, USPS or common freight carriers to Continental US addresses served by those services. Contact us for foreign or outlying US territory address shipping quotes. Once your shipment leaves our facility it is out of our direct control but we will maintain responsibility to report to you on your shipments progress until you receive it. All shipments will be insured to arrive in new undamaged condition and if they are not, replacement product will be sent out to you at no cost to replace any damaged product. Because of carrier time limits on claiming shipping damage, you agree to open and inspect your shipment within 30 days of receiving it. We may be unable to honor shipping damage claims beyond 30 days of delivery. If upon opening boxes you notice any damage, please contact us immediately so we can resolve the problem.

Low Price Shipping Guarantee: We ship hundreds of thousands of dollars of coops around the country each year and aggressively shop shipping costs. If you can ship your order, from our shop to your same destination in a like way with like speed and insurances for less money than we offer, we’ll ship that order no-charge. Offer void for employees of shipping companies who receive discounts, or discounts extended to family members. Offer does not apply to freight shipments.

Your Satisfaction: We lovingly make our coops right here in the USA with fellow Americans using largely US sourced materials. We take your satisfaction very seriously. Our satisfaction guarantee protects you in two ways. Part one gives you a chance to return the product in the unlikely event that you are not 100% satisfied once you receive it. The second part of our guarantee addresses the quality of our materials and workmanship of our products assuring you that your products quality performs as intended.

If within 30 days of you receiving your coop you decide you don’t like it, send it back and we’ll refund your full purchase price, shipping and any tax paid, less return shipping and packing charges “return costs”. Used or not. Email us to receive return authorization and we will dispatch a carrier for pickup and pay “return costs” which will be deducted from your refund, initiated upon receipt of your return. We will insure the return shipment for the value of your purchase. If your product has been personalized, it is also subject to a 10% additional reconditioning charge. This policy applies to refused shipments as well as non-responding recipients of shipments that were properly ordered.

We think these guidelines are fair for a custom hand made product and hope you do too. Inspect the quality of your coop when you open your boxes and make sure you’re satisfied. If you assemble and use your coop you will have to disassemble it to return it. Keep your boxes until you’re certain you are satisfied. The boxes that we ship in are custom made and if it becomes necessary to return your coop it will have to be re-packaged for return and your original boxes are the best and easiest way to do that. We won’t accept back modified product or product that was damaged or destroyed due to vandalism or acts of nature. For obvious reasons, we require return of product for any issued refund. This offer is valid only for end users who purchase their coops at www.roostandroot.com.

Warranty: All Roost & Root manufactured parts are warranted 100% against material and workmanship defects for 2 years (24 months) from the date of purchase when used as intended and not modified. A part that does not perform as intended during the warranty period, whether the fault of materials or workmanship, it will be repaired or replaced for no charge to the original purchaser.

Our warranty is only extended to the original purchaser and in no circumstance can Roost & Root be responsible for consequential damages. As the manufacturer of your coop, whether you purchase direct from us or a service partner, we will honor and administer any warranty directly to you, the end customer, if you are qualified to receive warranty benefits. Any modification or alteration of a product will invalidate its warranty and suitability for use.

Note About Western Red Cedar: Your coop will last the longest if left natural (will patina to grey) or if sealed with a clear non toxic cedar wood stain (will resist going grey but must be reapplied). VOC containing deck and wood “sealers” can be poisonous to chickens. We do not recommend their use for obvious reasons. We also do not recommend painting as inevitably a small pinhole or missed spot will conceal water absorption and vapors become trapped behind the paint and actually accelerate rotting.

Left natural, or treated with a properly applied non-toxic transparent breathable cedar wood stain, you should expect to get 6-8 years on the low side, 10 years on average or in certain regional climates 10+ years of service life from cedar. In arid climates, it is not uncommon for cedar to last 15 years. Our joinery methods and hardware target a 10 year service life. It might be necessary along the way to tighten a screw.

We reserve the right to, for free of charge (shipping not included) replace or to not replace a panel that has failed after our warranty period expires. From 2013 to late 2019 the only panels we have been made aware of that have rotted were those that had been painted and the paint seal had failed. So for obvious reasons, we do not recommend painting.

Sales Tax: Rules regarding the collection of sales taxes on the internet are a rapidly evolving matter and the matter is further complicated by the fact that some locales consider our products inherently “agricultural”  in nature and therefore exempt, others do not, and our small amount of sales in one locale may trigger collection, and in another might not.

It is our current practice to collect sales tax for shipping destinations within Texas and to not collect sales tax for other locales. If you live in Texas and are AG exempt contact us with your exempt number and we will not collect Sales Tax.  Otherwise, it is the responsibility of each consumer to pay their own taxes as might be required by your local laws. If we are required to pay the taxes on your behalf, and we did not collect them, we reserve the right to seek reimbursement from you for taxes that you are deemed to have owed.

Pricing: As the manufacturer of the coops we sell, we establish a “List Price” for our products and a “Retail” price. We may also refer to our “Retail” price as our Seasonal, Buy Direct, Sale, Sales or some other similarly worded price as part of our promotional efforts. We have derived our List Price for our products formulaically based in part on our materials, labor costs, facilities & operations, profit goals and in some instances taking into consideration, whenever possible, competitive “like products” in the market place. These prices will change for seasonal demand and marketing reasons periodically.

We also periodically advertise “Limited Time Offers” or other similarly worded extra “deal” that allow us to promote certain products and/or package combinations. These prices will change for seasonal demand and marketing reasons periodically as part of our marketing efforts.

In any case, we will clearly post the price you will pay through the buying process (including shipping costs) and our Price Guarantee protects you for from a lower price. If we are ever to put a product on sale or offer a special, you may request a refund of the difference of what you paid for an identical product(s) or package (Our Low Price Guarantee) within 14 calendar days of your purchase.

Due to the unpredictability of raw material costs, demand, seasonal stock fluctuations and shipping price volatility prices are subject to change with or without notice. You may only redeem one special offer per order.

We may send you as a promotion or you may have received as a gift or as a promotion on our site, a “Gift Card” which may be redeemed for a credit against your purchase on our web site on product(s) which may or may not already be on sale. “Gift Cards” have no cash value outside their redemption toward intended product purchases on our site. If no expiration is shown on a gift card, they will be honored for two years from issuance.

Price comparisons in combination packages and savings are based on purchasing products separately rather than together and incurring separate shipping charges. When we can bulk package product together in one shipment, we save money on shipping and share that savings with you.

We intend the benefit of our intellectual property to extend to our paying customers for their own private personal use and no one else. Any other use requires the express written permission of Roost & Root. We reserve the right to amend, improve, or change our designs as market and production needs require.

To the extent permitted by applicable law, your arbitration cannot be combined with another arbitration whether through class action arbitration proceedings or otherwise. You have the right to opt out of arbitration and to preserve the right to sue and to participate in a class action. The opt out procedure is discussed in the “Opt Out Procedure” section below.

By agreeing to arbitration, you understand, to the maximum extent permitted by law, you are agreeing to waive your right to file suit in any court, to a court hearing, judge trial and jury trial.

Class Action Waiver: To the maximum extent permitted by law, you expressly agree to refrain from bringing or joining any claims in any representative or class-wide capacity, included but not limited to bringing or joining any claims in any class action or any class-wide arbitration.

Dispute Resolution Procedure: If you have a dispute with Endure Products, LLC you agree to first contact Endure Products, LLC to discuss the matter. If we cannot resolve the dispute informally, it shall be resolved by arbitration. You may start the arbitration process by submitting a written demand to the American Arbitration Association and sending Endure Products, LLC a copy. Endure Products, LLC will pay all filing costs. A single arbitrator or the American Arbitration Association with conduct the arbitration in a location convenient to you or via telephone.

To opt out of arbitration you must contact Endure Products, LLC and request to opt out of arbitration. If more than thirty (30) days have passed, you are not eligible to opt out of arbitration and you will have waived your right to sue and your right to participate in a class action.

Severability: In the event any provision or part of this Agreement is found not to be valid or unenforceable, only that provision or part so found, and not the entire agreement, will be inoperative.

Disclaimers: In combination with specific information provided on a product, this site in general, and/or in the instructions for your particular product, these global disclaimers apply to any purchase made from us…

  1. You have sole responsibility for ascertaining the suitability of use of any of our products. We will never, ever, knowingly mislead you.
  2. You are responsible for taking all necessary safety precautions during the unpacking, assembly and use of our products. Our products are tested extensively and we have a policy of swiftly upgrading designs if we ever learn of a recurring issue.
  3. Our products are not intended to support anything other than their own weight and should not be stood upon. You probably can, but its a bad idea.
  4. Children should not be left unattended near our products because among other dangers, they may become trapped inside. For obvious reasons, we do not provide an exit latch from inside our coops.
  5. We use natural wood products as a material in our coops and among other dangers, splinters are possible. Its called “rough” cedar for a reason. With that said, if there is some sort of “shard” we’ve missed, we’ll certainly replace a part.
  6. We use metal roofs in many of our products and even though great care is taken to check edges of roof metal in our shop, it is well known that sheet metal, which roof metal is formed from, can have very sharp edges that will slice you. We almost exclusively rely on factory cut edges to minimize risk, but they’re still sharp. Where we do cut an edge, we use shears designed to micro-roll edges as to minimize sharpness. When possible, we round corners off. But still, you need to provide care when you or children come in contact with any metal roofing material, including the material we use. Watch small children around the coop carefully, especially roofs that are at eye level.
  7. Edges of wire that we use in our coops can be sharp. We certainly try to “nip” and hammer down loose ends, but you should verify.
  8. If you believe you have received a defective part, don’t try to alter it as this will void your warranty. We will gladly replace any part found to be defective during our warranty period.
  9. Our satisfaction policy allows you to return product. If you receive your purchase and feel you cannot safely assemble it and/or safely use it… return it. We will honor your request consistent with our then in force return policy.
  10. If you’re picking up your coop at our facility we want to be as helpful as possible loading and strapping your new coop but can only do so at your instruction. We cannot be responsible for the suitability of your vehicle or trailer for the task, providing straps or rope, or deciding for you how best to secure your load. We will work for you at your instruction. And we cannot of course be responsible for any of your load that were to become loose during your trip.

COVID-19 Message...
March 16, 2020
First off, we want to thank you for shopping at Roost & Root.  We are passionate about what we do and feel a great sense of purpose and pride in serving our customers over the past 7 years. Springtime is our normal peak season. With the CV-19 pandemic, we're busier than ever before with people seeking food security that comes from backyard farming. Dyan and I wanted to share a couple of things about how we are planning to behave while this spring season plays out.
  1. Roost & Root is considered an essential livestock housing manufacturer and is not being asked to close. We work in an open air shop that allows for plenty of social distancing. We have put in place recommended  protections and plan to work.
  2. We won't raise our prices to make more money or slow down demand during this difficult season. Why punish our customers? It makes no sense. We may have to raise prices if we are forced to purchase materials or labor at higher costs.  Our profit margins are not enough to absorb significant materials increases.  We do not presently know of any such supply issue, but can imagine it's possible. 
  3. We have historically been able to keep our spring back-order to 3 weeks or so... we see this going out further and are not going to slow it by raising prices...
    1. Our shop has a peak capacity due to size and can only responsibly  expand it so fast. We are expanding capacity though as we speak.
    2. We want our quality to stay high, so we will only add staff as fast as we can properly train them... and provide for their safety.
    3. We are located in an area where we cannot operate beyond M-F 7am to 7pm.
  4. We have indications from shippers that they have no plans to slow down.  So we do not believe shipping will present an issue.
  5. We plan to continue our policy of fulfilling orders in the order they are received and will not allow for "premium" pricing on orders to obtain a jump in the order queue. It's not fair.
We have close to a 100% on time delivery and scheduling track record on over 10,000 orders over the past 7 years.  We're smart about what we do.  After you place your order, our system will clearly commit your order to a weekly production batch.  We, in good faith manage this promise given the above information and will promise to stay in touch if for any reason we learn that circumstances beyond our control cause us to think we'll miss our promised delivery.

Thank you very much!

Dyan & Montie Twining
