Grate Lakes Windows WarrantyWarranties

What kind of warranty should I look for when buying Windows?

The warranty on replacement windows from any reputable source should:

  1. Be easy to read and understand.
  2. State in writing that it cover your windows for a lifetime.
  3. Cover everything — frame, sash, glass and seal, hardware, screens.
  4. Be transferable to the next homeowner when you sell.
  5. Be supported by a manufacturer in good financial standing.

It's always wise to checkon a company's financial strength. If it isn't strong, it may not honor your warranty claim. O worse, the company may not be around when you need to make a claim.

What kind of warranty does Great Lakes Windows provide?

TIP: A reputable company may have manufactured the extrusions (framing material), while the assembly and glass manufacturing was done by a smaller fabricator. Look for a large window manufacturer willing to take total responsibility for the products that carry its name.

Great Lakes Windows warranties all the points listed. Because Great Lakes Windows is a wholly-owned subsidary of Nortek Industries (a two billion-dollar publically held company), we have the solid financial base to back our products with the best warranty of all — a Limited Lifetime-Plus Warranty* on the window unit.

It's really a double lifetime warranty, because it's transferable to a second property owner if you sell your home. That's why we call it a "Lifetime Plus" warranty. It's our way of telling homeowners that we have absolute confidence in our products, and a committment as a longstanding and respected leader in this industry.
