When you spend thousands of dollars on new impact resistant windows, you want to know that they’re going to work well. That’s where guarantees come into play. As you look into the options available in Pinellas County, it’s a good idea to understand what certain guarantees mean so you can make the most of your purchase. Know what you are getting into with an investment this large! Here are some things to help you out.
Guarantees Vs. Limited Warranties
Plenty if people get these two terms mixed up and it’s easy enough to do. Guarantees are just what they sound like…guarantees on fixes, repairs, and replacements for a certain length of time. Products are often fully covered by guarantees unless the documents specifically note any exclusion. Limited warranties, on the other hand, are limited to just certain parts, certain defects, and other conditions that arise from normal use. Anything the retailer decides can be left out. These warranties often only cover parts and not labor required to fix issues. There might even be stipulations where consumers and manufacturers split the cost of repairs. Make sure you know what you are getting when your impact resistant windows are labeled in either way.
Transferable Vs. Non-Transferable
You are taking on impact resistant windows to make your home a better, safe place to live. You want them to outlast the time you spend in the home. We put in new windows to decrease utility bills, increase safety in the event of a bad storm, and to get a return on the investment, among many other reasons. When you are looking at the details on guarantees or warranties, one big factor is whether or not it’s transferable. Transferable guarantees mean the next homeowner gets the same coverage. That can be very enticing for prospective buyers.
Lifetime guarantees are great and they sound perfect, but they might only include parts and not the labor. The labor is often the most expensive part! Most reputable companies will provide labor for at least 2 years. You simply need to know up front if labor is covered or not and for how long so you know what to expect in the future. Take the time to read the fine print so you know just what you are getting yourself into with impact resistant windows.
