The terms of the warranty should be a major consideration for homeowners who are shopping for replacement windows. A strong warranty protects your investment by ensuring you have long-term support on a purchase costing thousands of dollars. That’s why you should take your time to carefully review the warranty details before making a purchase.
Today, Renewal by Andersen® of San Antonio, discusses three key things to look for in the warranty for your windows or entry doors.
The product warranty generally entails coverage for manufacturer defects within a specified period. Typically, such defects include defective hardware, warpage or damaged glass seals. A number of things, however, aren’t covered by the product warranty—such as normal wear and tear, neglect, improper use, and acts of God (fires, storms, etc.) among others.
To be successful, a window or door installation must follow a strict, detailed procedure. If this procedure is not properly followed, the installation will be flawed and the window or door may not perform properly. The workmanship warranty offers you security against installation-related issues for a specific length of time. Most installation-related problems manifest within the first several years after installation, so a 5-10-year warranty should be adequate.
How to Get Help
Make sure you understand the process for claiming your warranty. Note the numbers and departments you should reach out to in case something goes wrong with your window. Typically, manufacturers ask for the serial number of the affected product during claims. For Andersen windows, you can find this at the top or side of the window frame. To be on the safe side, keep a copy of the serial number in a secure place.
