From new replacement casement windows for your kitchen to beautiful picture windows for your living room or home office, upgrading your windows is always a big, but worthy investment for any homeowner. Most modern windows are designed to last decades before needing replacement, so a window installation or upgrade project is not something that people do very often. Because of this, there are still many points that they might not fully understand about the whole process.
One of these important, yet often overlooked points is the warranty. Window replacement warranties help protect you and your new replacement windows from any potential problems that might arise from either the product itself or the way it was installed.
Materials and Labor
Warranties can be one of two types: material or labor. For example, your double-hung replacement windows will usually be covered by two warranties. The material warranty will cover any factory defect or other issues. This warranty is often provided by the manufacturer. Meanwhile, the contractor or company who installed the window will cover window problems that arose from the installation itself.
As a homeowner, it’s important that you file a claim to the right party for any problems with your new replacement windows. This can be a confusing process because you have to keep track of two different companies for two aspects of your windows.
