What to Look For in a Replacement Window Warranty

The warranty is the amount of time a window company or manufacturer will service a product for factory defects. It doesn’t include damage due to neglect, abuse and natural elements. 

Look for these items in a replacement window warranty. 

Product Warranty

The product warranty accounts for replacement parts due to manufacturer’s defects. It usually includes failed glass seals in an insulated glass unit, defective hardware and warpage. Some manufacturers offer accidental glass breakage. Product warranties don’t typically cover the labor required for replacing parts. Your house window replacement company should handle the installation if they offer the service. 

Consider if the product warranty is transferrable if you’re thinking of selling your home in the future. It will allow you to transfer the warranty to future property owners. Prorated means the coverage of the warranty goes down over time. You’d want a warranty that is transferrable and non-prorated. 

Labor Warranty

Installation-related problems usually manifest themselves within the first year after the project. A warranty that lasts at least 10 years are ideal. Look for any service call or diagnosis charges, and coverage to install parts provided in the manufacturer’s warranty. Take note of the length of the warranty as well as its inclusions and exclusions.

Labor warranties are made to cover faulty or defective installation methods. Meaning, it doesn’t include maintenance items, such as caulking, track cleaning or anything that affects window operation.

"Absolutely wonderful experience working with renewal. They kept my wife and I up to date all throughout the process from the initial sales pitch to installation. They were courteous and professional throughout. The installation of 8 windows was completed in one day and the product is fantastic. Immediate difference felt inside the home and its much quieter now too. My wife and I are thrilled at our purchase. The windows are a bit pricey but worth every single penny. Wonderful product from a wonderful company. Will definitely be using them in the future to install the rest of the windows in our home."

"When I say, superior service I mean just that!! From start to finish I was pleased!! Step 1, Scheduled appointment at the Home show… easy. Step 2, phone call to confirm appointment the next week….easy. Step 3, in home consultation with Keith Billingsley…..Amazing!!!! Step 4, call and cancel all other Window companies and let them know you have chosen the Best company, Anderson Windows!!! My Windows took a couple of months to come which was not a problem. Oooohhh but when installing day came ( a week early) I was lost for words. The installation team was A1 with professionalism and cleanliness!! They didn’t leave a scrap of trash on my property. It was cleaned up both days. I had Ed Tutton and crew. I had a million questions and they answered every one of them and made me feel so assured with the process. A couple of my Windows had wood rotted. They took care of it and fixed it better than when the house was built!!! Two of my Windows came in broken, it was addressed and shown to us and reorder in the same day!! They will be installed later. The Windows are so beautiful I stood in my master bedroom Windows for almost 3 hours just looking out. I hate Window grates…. I have solid glass Windows now❤️❤️! I wish I would have ordered my new front doors from Anderson Windows. So if you are looking to get new Windows you must go with Anderson Windows!!!"
