Window Warranties

More Savvy Tips

Plenty of things can go wrong when you have windows installed. They may not fit right, they may not be the quality you expected, or they may fog up. Something you may not know until you try to get warranty work done is that lifetime warranties do not always cover the last problem. According to Kevin Grundry, Chief Financial Officer for Custom Exteriors Incorporated, many warranties only cover the frame, not the glass seal. A defective seal may cause fogging on double pane windows. To know what you're getting from a contractor, ask to see the window manufacturer's warranty in writing. You want coverage for both frames and seals.
