Default Neck resets, refretting on stratabond and richlite

I was looking into some of the Martin acoustics. I'm hoping to keep the guitars for a long time. Are there any long term issues with Stratabond necks in terms of neck resetting should it ever occur? Is Richlite harder to refret than normal wood?

I don't know about the richlite, but a stratabond neck won't require anything special if it needs a neck re-set. Stratabond is also much stronger and more stable than solid-wood necks. And models with the stratabond necks all, to my knowledge, have A-frame top bracing, which is supposed to be more resistant to the neck crushing down the upper bout. This means they're more resistant to one of the conditions which lead to a required neck reset.
