Filing a Residential Window Warranty Claim in General

Most windows will not last forever. The time will come when you need to repair or replace your windows. Before you begin that journey you should check the existing window's warranty.
There are a few things you'll want to know to find the window warranty if it isn't already in your possession.

Things You Need to Know to File a Window Warranty With the Manufacturer

1. Who installed or sold the homeowner the windows?
2. Who is the window manufacturer or brand?
3. Contact the window manufacturer's warranty department and follow through with their directions.
Whether you are navigating the warranty process yourself or with a team like ours the filing process will take time.

Why Are Window Warranties Denied?

Window warranty claims can be denied for various reasons. One of the most common reasons warranty claims are denied is because they have timed out. Most warranties aren't Full Lifetime warranties meaning they have a limitation on time and coverage.
Another common reason a warranty isn't upheld is because the fault of the problem lies with the installation and not the quality of the product. If this is the window manufacturer's response you'll need to contact the installation company and that can turn into a lot of back and forth. Sometimes the problem may be caused by another problem in the home like a bad roof or cracks in the foundation.

What to Expect When Window Warranty Claims Are Approved

When your claim is approved you will want to verify that all the costs are covered. It is common for the window manufacturer to cover the cost of replacement parts covered by the warranty. Unfortunately, the cost of shipping and installation is often not included.
