Unlike other competitors in the window and door industry, Andersen Windows & Doors provides a warranty which doesn’t end when a house is sold. Their Owner-to-Owner® limited warranty applies for 20 years to glass and 10 years to non-glass items and is transferrable to new owners when a home is sold.
Under this warranty, glass is replaced for up to 20 years if damage occurs as the result of poor manufacturing, materials, or installation. The warranty on glass does not include labor if the owner chooses to obtain replacement glass through a local retailer or dealer. However, if the owner allows for a factory repair, there will be no cost to them. Andersen’s warranties do not cover any damage which occurs at the fault of the owner or as the result of inclement weather or fire.
All non-glass items will be replaced for up to 10 years if damage occurs as the result of poor manufacturing, materials, or installation. Similarly to the warranty available on glass, there will be no cost to the owner if they choose a factory repair. However, if the owner chooses to obtain replacement parts at a local retailer or dealer, the cost of labor will not be covered.
As with any warranty, it is important to understand there are always special exclusions and circumstances which apply. Before purchasing any Andersen Products, carefully review the individual warranties which are outlined on their website.
