Here’s How a Good Window Warranty Works

Window warranties can often be misunderstood by homeowners, especially if they find out that their warranty doesn’t cover all aspects of their replacement windows. It’s partially the reason why they have the term “Limited Lifetime” in their warranties, so it doesn’t hurt to ask the right questions first before you proceed with purchasing your energy-efficient windows.

Limited Lifetime Warranty Explained

These warranties are commonly offered by professional window contractors. They’re often provided by the manufacturers and cover defects in regard to the aesthetics and performance of your purchased window.

A Limited Lifetime Warranty may only apply to the parts that need to be replaced, so it doesn’t readily include the labor required to fix the window. This will also vary between replacement window manufacturers, so it helps to ask your sales representative to understand how their window warranty will work.

The Duration of the Warranty Coverage

Common warranty lengths typically include 5, 10, 15 and 20 years. The length of your warranty will also depend on the type of installation you’re having done. For example, a warranty for glass and a warranty for roofing materials will typically be different. If you’re installing multiple products, such as roofing and windows, be sure to discuss the exact coverage of each product with your hired contractor.

Hiring the Right Contractor

It’s important that you research and find out what types of replacement windows best fit your home. This includes knowing the architectural style of your home to narrow down your choices. And, as for finding the right contractor, it’s recommended that you go for companies that have a good reputation in your area, so you can be confident that they’ll get the job done right.

"This was one of the best experiences I've ever had with a company. I ordered the windows in November and was told they wouldn't be here until July. That kind of delay the new norm so I wasn't a bit upset with the timeline. I was given an early present when they called to say the windows would be in at the beginning of May. We agreed on the week of May 16th to do the installation, there were 30 windows and a sliding door to install. They arrived promptly on their scheduled install date, and got straight to work. By the end of day one, they had all the upstairs windows complete and their work was incredible. Day two came with more of the same, the crew showed up promptly, got straight to work, and when they left they had every window downstairs installed. The third day they again arrived on-time, and got to work installing the door. The door and windows are perfectly installed. The two lads that did the installation did a phenomenal job, and were friendly to boot. I would give them more business if I had any :) The service I received from the company was great. They kept me abreast of anything that was going on with my order. I appreciate my concierge, Christina, she was good at communicating timelines and getting everything scheduled."

"The two installers were great! They were polite and hard working and they cleaned up all the outside and inside. It was like they were never here. As for the windows, I love them, not only looks great, they are efficient. Now every window in my home has Renewal by Anderson."

"We had the pleasure recently of having Andersen replace all of our windows. From the very first interaction with the office personnel through the completion of the project, they have been nothing but professional. From Brian our sales rep to Christina the appointment scheduler, they were a pleasure to interact with. Installers Keith, John, and Evan were fantastic to work with. They went above and beyond to repair an area which was slightly damaged during the removal of a window...caulked and painted it. They took extra precaution to ensure the floors were covered while working inside and cleaned up each day inside and out. We love the look of our new windows and can't wait to enjoy the savings in utilities they'll provide. Thanks so much Renewal by Andersen!!"
