Interviews and News: Thank you for taking time out with us today.

Weathershield Reviews Team: We are glad to be here.

Interviews and News: As you know, we polled our readers recently on home improvement topics. They have sent in some really great questions. Are you up for the challenge?

Weathershield Reviews Team: Absolutely.

Interviews and News: Let’s begin… What kind of a warranty comes with new/replacement windows?

Weathershield Reviews Team: That is going to vary from brand to brand and even between lines manufactured by the same company.

Interviews and News: Adding to that question, what kind of warranty should a homeowner look for?

Weathershield Reviews Team: First and foremost, make sure that a warranty is spelled out clearly before you sign any paperwork. A good window warranty will cover defects in manufacture and materials.

Interviews and News: Does an installer provide a separate warranty?

Weathershield Reviews Team: A good one does, yes. This should include coverage for any improperly installed window or those damaged during the installation process.

Interviews and News: What type of warranty does Weathershield Windows and Doors offer?

Weathershield Reviews Team: We have a 20 year warranty on all of our products.

Interviews and News: Another reader asks if installers should be licensed and bonded?

Weathershield Reviews Team: It’s always a good idea and, in many states, replacement contractors are required to be licensed and insured.

Interviews and News: How do I know if my installer is qualified?

Weathershield Reviews Team: Do not be afraid to check references and make sure to ask him or her to show you license and insurance information.

Interviews and News: How long does it take for windows to be installed after you order?

Weathershield Reviews Team: It can take weeks to months. That depends on the size of the order, the installer schedule, and even the weather.

Interviews and News: When should my home’s windows be replaced?

Weathershield Reviews Team: If your windows are more than 20 years old, are cracked, do not fit properly, or do not open, it is definitely time to consider a replacement.

Interviews and News: Will I get a better price if I go with a new company versus an established window manufacturer?

Weathershield Reviews Team: There are hundreds upon hundreds of window manufacturers in the US. Some of these are newer and may offer lower prices, but they will likely compromise on materials and quality. Do your research and don’t allow a low initial price to be your sole determining factor.

Interviews and News: Should I get references on my window manufacturer?

Weathershield Reviews Team: Absolutely – we encourage our dealers to check our references before doing business with us and we believe that homeowners should do the same.

Interviews and News: How can I know that my replacement windows will stand the test of time?

Weathershield Reviews Team: Part of that goes back to the warranty. But, you should also check distant clients of the manufacturer and your installer to see how their windows are performing.

Interviews and News: Who should I contact if I have problems with my windows?

Weathershield Reviews Team: If you ordered from a big box retailer, you should contact them first. If you ordered directly from your installer, then that is a good starting point.

Interviews and News: How do I know which window is best for my home?

Weathershield Reviews Team: Most dealers will have a showroom available so you can compare your options.

Interviews and News: What is the most important factor to consider when buying replacement windows?

Weathershield Reviews Team: There are many things to consider, but quality and a company’s willingness to stand behind their products should lend a great deal of weight to your decision.

Interviews and News: You’ve definitely given our readers some good answers. Thank you so much for your time.

Weathershield Reviews Team: You’re welcome. Thank you for having us.
