The warranty is one of the first things you should consider when investing in new windows. You want a comprehensive coverage that can keep your investment protected for years. Moreover, a contractor who is offering a strong warranty is more confident that they can deliver quality installation services.
Here are essential things you should look for in the warranty of your new residential windows.
With a transferable warranty, you can transfer the coverage to one or more future owners of your home. It is an important thing to consider if you are thinking about selling your home in the near future. More prospective buyers may also be attracted to your property if your windows have a transferable warranty.
A prorated warranty has coverage for the entire term of the warranty term but it reduces over the years. It is like roofing shingles, where you usually get complete coverage for the first 10 years then it will start dropping gradually. When it’s time to replace your double hung windows, you should look for products with warranties that are fully transferable and not prorated.
