The Important Things to Look for in a Window Warranty

When you are in the market for replacement windows, one of the crucial factors you must consider is its warranty. It is an important aspect of the product because it protects you from unexpected costs in the unlikely event that there’s something wrong with it. It will also make sure that you don’t pay for other people’s mistakes.

The Product Warranty

The product warranty of a window is the length of time a manufacturer will provide coverage for defects. It won’t include certain items like damage due to abuse or failure to maintain. Should there be any manufacturer defects, the warranty calls for replacement parts in the event of component failure. These include the failure of glass seals and defective hardware.

Depending on the material, some windows and doors manufacturers offer either a lifetime warranty or a variation of the 20/10 warranty. The latter means 20 years on glass and 10 years on everything else, including the material.

The Installation Warranty

This warranty, meanwhile, is intended to cover any poor or defective installation practices. No doubt, it is as important as the product warranty, but it can vary wildly from one dealer to the next. Some may offer a year, some may offer a lifetime, and others somewhere in between. A 5- to 10-year warranty is usually enough since problems manifest themselves within the first few years after installation.
