You’ll find lots of options when the time comes to buy Tigard, OR replacement windows, but there are things you need to consider before making any buying decision. Things like style, manufacturer and energy efficiency are important, but so, too, is the warranty. Issues like the warranty can sometimes fall between the cracks for many consumers because they take it for granted – and they shouldn’t. You’ll likely have the windows for a long time, so you have to treat the warranty situation seriously. Here are some things to consider on the warranty front.
Warranties Not Offered Across the Board
It’s important for you to know upfront that not all replacement window companies offer warranties on their products. So if a warranty is important to you, you need to ask before making a buying decision. The right windows can last you decades, so you want to protect your investment over the long haul with a warranty. The sooner you ask the question, the sooner you’ll have your answer. It’ll save you from wasting time talking to companies that offer no warranty.
Finding replacement windows with warranties is great, but in addition to this you need to enquire about the length of the warranty applicable to the windows you’re interested in. Warranties vary in length. For instance, you can get one-year, five-year, 10-year, 20-year and even lifetime warranties for your windows. Perhaps the length of the warranty won’t matter as much to you if you plan to sell your home and to buy a new one sooner rather than later. But selling a home with windows featuring lengthy warranties won’t hurt your home-sale options either. So it makes sense, either way, to get the best warranty coverage possible for your investment.
What Does the Warranty Cover?
Some warranties only cover a portion of the windows. So be sure to ask if everything is covered under the warranty or if it excludes components such as the glass or the hardware. You definitely want to avoid signing if you can’t live with what would amount to a partial warranty. Ask the right questions and read the warranty information to ensure that you know what’s covered.
