If you’re about to make a major investment in your home, you likely have warranty paperwork to review. Major investments like aluminum fencing all come with specific warranty terms and conditions – but what separates a good warranty from a waste of time? If you feel confused by your fencing manufacturer’s warranty terms, you’re not alone. Warranty coverage varies as much as other product characteristics, so it’s important to understand the terms within your specific policy. Scroll down to find out more about what to look for in an aluminum fencing warranty to ensure your investment is protected.
What to Look for in an Aluminum Fencing Warranty
Does Your Warranty Include Quality Customer Service?
Of course, you’ll want to assess your warranty’s length and depth of coverage. But customer service is crucial when it comes to an effective warranty. First, check your warranty to determine your best point of contact for warranty service. That may be the seller or the manufacturer, depending on the warranty’s terms. You should also check the specific terms associated with warranty service. For example, will the manufacturer repair your damaged aluminum fencing, simply replace it, or refund your money altogether? Understanding your warranty’s customer service policy will go a long way if your fencing is somehow damaged.
Does Your Fencing Warranty Have Any Fine Print?
Make sure to read the fine print, as tedious as it may seem. This is because some warranties only provide coverage if you use the product exactly as directed. For example, a warranty may only cover your fencing if you provide a certain level of year-to-year maintenance. You may also yield your warranty coverage after a certain period of time. When in doubt, reach out to the seller for more information on the details.
Why You Should Opt for a Lifetime Limited Warranty
As mentioned earlier, some warranties only cover a limited period of time; for example, a 12-year warranty or a 12-year warranty. On the other hand, a lifetime limited warranty should cover your fencing for as long as you own it. A lifetime limited warranty typically covers normal wear and tear to your fencing, any defects in workmanship and materials, as well as any chipping, cracking, or peeling of your fence’s finish. Just keep in mind that a lifetime limited warranty doesn’t refer to your lifetime – it refers to the product’s lifetime. Overall, a lifetime limited warranty offers the best way to protect your investment and ensure your fence stays in great condition for decades.
