There are many decisions to make when replacing your windows, from the style to material to trim color. One of the most important choices you’ll make, though, is whether to invest in a warranty. At New Jersey Siding & Windows, Inc., our windows come with lifetime warranties, which is an important feature to look for when comparing your options. Here, we explain why a replacement window lifetime warranty proves to be useful, both now and in the future.
Peace of Mind Against Defects
The first benefit of a warranty appears earlier than you might expect. When you need new windows, you make an effort to purchase high-quality replacements and hire a contractor with a solid reputation. No matter how well-made the window or how experienced the contractor, however, mistakes can happen. Maybe the window has an unnoticed defect, or there was an error during installation. Either way, you’d be left with a flawed window that isn’t all you hoped for. If you’ve invested in a warranty, however, this is less of a concern. The warranty will cover manufacturer-related flaws allowing the problem to be fixed without additional expenses.
Replacement and Repairs at No Cost
A lifetime warranty also covers any replacements or repairs needed over the window’s entire estimated lifespan. As a result, you’ll save money on all kinds of potential window issues, such as:
- Unnoticed defects that can lead to accelerated wear, tear, or fading
- Window hardware that breaks down over repeated use
- Loss of energy efficiency due to air leakage
- Accidental glass breakage due to storms or other events
When exploring a warranty, always ask the manufacturer how long coverage will last. The last thing you need is to get caught paying for repairs earlier than you expected. Instead, make sure you understand your warranty and all it entails, and to be on the safe side, invest in windows with lifetime protection. Quality manufactured windows are designed to have every part replaced, making the fix a breeze.
Added Value to Your Home
Not only do lifetime warranties bring peace of mind, but they can also add value to your home. Depending on the manufacturer, some warranties are transferrable. This means if you sell your home, the warranty will extend to its new owners as well. Your buyers will enjoy the same protection you do, which is often a significant enough advantage to add value to the home. This can even help you find buyers faster and get a better price for the property.
Highlighting your warranty will also indicate to buyers that your windows were recently replaced. While this seems minor, it’s actually a major benefit. House hunters will know they won’t have to invest in replacements anytime soon and that they’re buying a home with windows that will last for years to come.
