One of the best things about installing replacement windows in Fremont, CA in 2019 is that, once you do it, you shouldn’t have to worry about replacing them again for a long time. Most modern windows are made using materials that will last for a long time. The windows also come with extended warranties that will ensure you’ll be able to have your windows fixed in no time if something ever goes wrong with them.
You do want to be extra careful about not voiding your window warranty, though. There are a handful of things that you might do to cause your window manufacturer to void your warranty on you if you’re not careful. Let’s take a look at a few of the things that you should do if you want to make sure that your window warranty stays intact for years to come.
Hire a licensed window company to install your new windows.
Thinking about either installing your new Fremont, CA windows yourself or hiring a handyman to lend a hand with window installation? Think again! Many window manufacturers will void the warranty on their windows if they find out that a homeowner chose not to have a licensed window company put them into place. You should always work with an experienced company to ensure that your windows go in the right way and that your warranty remains valid.
Ask window installers to show you how to operate them.
Most people think they’ll know how to open and close a window without asking someone to show them how to do it. But it never hurts to have a window installer show you how to operate your new windows. Some newer windows can do more than just open and close. They can also tilt in or out for cleaning purposes. It’s a good idea to have a window installer walk you through it.
Get into the habit of cleaning and maintaining them over time.
Once you have your new windows installed in your home, you’re going to want them to look their best at all times. The good news is that many new windows are very easy to maintain. You can keep them shining with little more than a microfiber cloth. Just make sure that you don’t allow dust, dirt, and other debris to build up on your windows or, worse, inside your windows. When this happens, it can cause complications with your windows, and some window manufacturers might choose not to honor your window warranty if your windows look like they haven’t been cleaned and maintained.
Contact your window manufacturer if you ever experience the slightest bit of trouble.
Do you sense that there might be something wrong with one of your new windows? Call your window company or your window manufacturer right away to have the issue addressed. If you wait and the problem gets worse over time, you might end up being to blame for the issue. You’re much better off getting in touch with your window company if you ever suspect a problem with your windows.
