Understanding Replacement Window Warranties

As a homeowner, you need to cover all bases when planning your window replacement. Apart from choosing the design and framing material, the contractor to hire for the project should also be carefully considered. Another aspect that shouldn’t be overlooked is the warranty. To get the most out of your new windows, you have to make sure that they come with solid coverage.

Renewal by Andersen® of Sacramento explains what you need to know about replacement window warranties.

The Importance of a Window Warranty

The warranties that come with your replacement windows protect you from any unexpected costs in the off-chance that there’s something wrong with them. These are essentially guarantees to ensure that you’re covered in case problems arise with your new units. Repairing or replacing the windows under warranty means you won’t have to pay out of pocket, provided that the damage meets specific conditions. For instance, you won’t be covered by your warranty if the issue stemmed from your failure to clean or maintain the products according to manufacturer recommendations.

What Does a Typical Window Warranty Entail?

The scope of your window warranty coverage may vary depending on the manufacturer, but it is generally categorized into two parts: 

  • Product warranty. Some manufacturers offer a lifetime warranty, inclusive of all the window materials and components. Others, meanwhile, offer a variation in which each component is covered for a specific length of time. For instance, the framing material is warranted for 20 years from the date of installation, while the locking mechanisms are covered for only 10 years.

  • Installation warranty. Windows with installation warranties are covered against defects caused by poor workmanship. The same thing applies to these warranties as the product warranty — some are lifetime and others are somewhere in between.
