Manual button punch tools will be loaned to our customers at no charge under the following guidelines.

  1. The borrower must purchase the metal decking from Western Metal Deck or Western States Decking, Inc.
  2. A deposit of $1,395.00 in the form of a company check must be provided as security for the return of the tool. This deposit check is due at the time of pick up or prior to shipment.
  3. A button punch loan agreement must be signed by the borrower. This agreement requires the borrower to return the tool on schedule or buy the tool for $1,395.00 (which is the normal cost).
  4. If the tool is returned late the borrower will be charged a rental rate of $350 per week.
  5. If the tool is not returned the deposit will be forfeited and the customer can keep the tool.
  6. The borrower is responsible for picking up the button punch tool and returning the button punch tool.
  7. If the borrower is more than 50 miles away and would rather have the tool shipped then they are responsible for paying the shipping costs both ways. Click here to see a sample of the button punch loan agreement.

How long can a customer borrow the button punch tool for?

The amount of time a customer can borrow the button punch tool will depend on the size of the job. The larger the job, the more time a customer can borrow the tool, the smaller the job, the less time a customer will have to borrow the tool.
