If you’ve done any research on replacement windows, you already know that there are many, many manufacturers producing replacement window products for Pleasanton homes. While all these products can look very similar, there are definite differences when you start looking at the details. At Custom Exchange, we carefully select the brands of windows we offer to our customers. We consider a number of factors, including quality, durability, energy efficiency, and price. Another thing we take into account is the warranty offered by the window manufacturer.
We believe a warranty says a lot about a manufacturer and its products. It tells you, in a sense, how long a window is expected to last. If a company only guarantees their windows for five years, you can be fairly certain that they aren’t among the higher quality windows on the market. However, if they offer a lifetime warranty, it’s a good indication that the windows are durable.
Almost all replacement window manufacturers offer some sort of warranty, but some are definitely better than others. Simonton Windows & Doors offers one of the best warranties in the industry and is one of the reasons why we sell their replacement window products to our Pleasanton customers. Many of their products come with a Double Lifetime Warranty. If you’re not familiar with a Double Lifetime Warranty, it is a guarantee that extends to you for as long as you own your home, but one that can also be passed on to the next owner of your home. This is a great selling point when it comes time to put your house on the market!
The Simonton window warranty covers the glass, hardware, and vinyl frames of each window. It even covers accidental glass breakage. Of course, like any warranty, there are exclusions. For example, Simonton won’t cover windows that were improperly installed (which is why it’s important to work with professional window installers, like the ones we use at Custom Exchange), or damage that is due to a structural failure in the home’s walls or foundation. But for the most part, the Simonton window warranty is pretty comprehensive. We’ve also found that Simonton is good about honoring their warranty and responds to claims relatively quickly.
To make a warranty claim with Simonton, you can contact the company directly through their website or you can contact us at Custom Exchange if we were the ones who installed your windows. We can help you with the claims process and get your windows repaired or replaced in a timely fashion.
If you are in the market for replacement windows, we highly recommend Simonton products. To learn more about Simonton windows, or about the other brands of replacement windows we sell, contact us at Custom Exchange.
