When you purchase new windows for your New Jersey or New York Metro home, they should come with a warranty. Your windows will likely be a large investment, so before finalizing the purchase, review the warranty to ensure you’re protected should anything go wrong. Not all warranties are created equal. Knowing what to look for can help ensure that you’re getting good protection for your money.
A transferrable warranty is a warranty that follows your windows no matter who owns your home. If the windows you purchase have a transferrable warranty, the warranty will protect anyone who purchases your property which can raise the resale value of your home. Transferrable warranties are more valuable because they make your home more appealing to buyers when you sell.
One of the great benefits of installing new windows is the appeal to home buyers. According to AngiesList, new windows have an Return on Investment of 70 percent or more, because of their great energy efficiency and convenience for new homeowners. A transferrable warranty is just one more thing that makes your new windows appealing to potential home buyers.
In the event that something goes wrong with your windows, an easy claim procedure is important. Some window manufacturers may require you to certify that your windows were properly installed before they cover any claims against the warranty. Renewal by Andersen warranties have an easy claims procedure. There’s no need to certify proper installation – we know your windows were properly installed because we’re the installers. To make a claim you just have to call the Warranty Service Line at 800-441-1109 with the the window serial numbers, product concerns, purchase date, name, address, where the product is installed and telephone numbers so they can contact you.
It’s that easy. We don’t want our customers to jump through inconvenient hoops to enjoy our products.
If you purchased windows from a local window store and then hired a separate contractor to install them, the window installation is likely not covered by the window purchase warranty. Hopefully your contractor warranties their work and will still be in business when you have a warranty claim.
Your windows should continue to look as beautiful as they did the day they were installed, even 20 years after their installation. The best window warranties will last for decades. A warranty that lasts less than 20 years could imply that the window manufacturer has little confidence in their own product. Read your warranty carefully before making a purchase.
Renewal by Andersen’s warranty is one of the best in the industry. To find out more about our warranty and how your windows are protected, contact Renewal by Andersen of New Jersey and New York Metro at 1-888-826-2451.
