Window replacement is one of the best ways to improve your home’s overall appearance and functionality. To ensure the project goes smoothly, you want to cover all bases, from choosing the right frame material and window design to hiring a reliable window contractor. In addition, you need to make sure you have a strong warranty. To get the most of your investment, make sure that your replacement windows come with solid coverage.
The Importance of a Warranty
A warranty provides an extra layer of protection to your window replacement project. In the unlikely event there was a defect in the manufacturing process of your windows, you won’t be responsible for the cost of addressing it.
Keep in mind that a warranty spells out specific conditions that should be met to ensure continued coverage. For instance, it may include a clause indicating that future repairs or replacements must be carried out by the window company that installed the replacement units. Working with someone other than the original installer might void the warranty coverage. Repairs for window damage caused by a lack of upkeep are unlikely to be covered, too.
Working With a Reputable Window Contractor
An established window installation contractor with a proven reputation usually offers solid warranties and will honor their coverage. You can’t always expect the same treatment from off-brand companies, which is why it pays to turn to a reputable installer.
At Renewal by Andersen® of Cape Cod, we offer a fully transferable, limited 20-year warranty on our advanced Fibrex® composite material and glass. Window installation, meanwhile, is warranted for a period of five years. A 10-year warranty coverage applies for components other than glass, including locking mechanisms, insect screens, hinges, weatherstripping and the color finish. In the unlikely event your replacement windows are installed incorrectly or one or more components have manufacturing defects, you can rest assured that you’re fully covered.
