Things to Look for in a Replacement Window Warranty

When investing in new windows, make sure to check the warranty carefully. After all, it should protect you from unexpected costs in case there’s something wrong with the product. But what should it entail? 

Things to Look for in a Replacement Window Warranty

Frame Coverage

If anything breaks or goes wrong with the frame of the window, it will be covered by the warranty.

Glass Coverage

The warranty will cover repairs for the window glass in case it stops functioning properly, excluding breakage. For instance, you can replace the window under warranty if the glass is consistently foggy and doesn’t clear up after a thorough cleaning. This should cover any films or additional energy-efficient coatings on the glass, but the warranty needs to be clear on this.

Hardware Coverage

The warranty should cover all of the window’s moving parts and hardware, including the locks and balance systems that prevent the window from operating on its own. For instance, if your double-hung windows won’t tilt in or out as they should, its warranty will cover the repair of the mechanism that makes it so.

Labor and Installation

If a warranty does not cover this, the business will not be held liable if the window is not installed correctly. This implies that, in addition to the installation costs themselves, you might have to spend several hundred dollars to have the installation fixed if there are any issues. Craftsmanship matters.
