Questions to Ask About Lifetime Warranties
Are you searching for a contractor to assist you with basement waterproofing or foundation repair? Homeowners today are spoilt for choice when it comes to waterproofing and foundation repair services. However, not all services are created equal. In fact, many homeowners find themselves in difficult situations because they chose a contractor that did not live up to their expectations in one way or another.
One thing that homeowners are often advised to look at is the warranty that the contractor offers. It is becoming more common for contractors to offer lifetime warranties to entice homeowners. However, do these lifetime warranties really provide lifetime coverage? The following are some questions to ask when presented with a lifetime warranty.
1. What is the contractor’s definition of a lifetime warranty?
It is important to clearly understand what the contractor means when they say they provide a lifetime warranty. What is covered under the warranty? How long does the company consider a lifetime? Is it as long as you live or as long as the foundation is intact? What type of damage does the warranty cover?
2. What does the lifetime warranty mean for repairs?
Does the warranty end when the manufacturer stops producing replacement parts? Does the warranty mean that you will receive repair services for the life of the product or for as long as you live?
3. Is the warranty transferrable?
Many contractors limit their lifetime warranties to the owner of the home at the time that they are installing the product. The warranty, therefore, ends when the ownership of the property changes.
There are some contractors that offer transferable warranties. At Everdry Waterproofing of Greater Grand Rapids, we offer a fully transferable warranty at no extra fee. The homeowner has to notify us of the change in ownership and the new owner’s details.
4. Are there conditions attached to the warranty?
Many contractors trick homeowners into taking up lifetime warranties that are valid only if the contractor performs the annual maintenance. Some contractors even charge for service calls.
With Everdry Waterproofing of Greater Grand Rapids, you don’t have to worry about extra fees or charges. We don’t charge for service calls or trips.
