Below is a listing of our window warranties, roofing warranties and more.
If you have any other questions feel free to contact us by e-mail or call us at 1-800-272-6655.
Lifetime Plus Warranty
TRI-STATE WINDOW & DOOR FACTORY provides window warranties against defects in vinyl for as long as the windows remain part of the property.
TRI-STATE WINDOWS agrees to repair or replace, FREE OF CHARGE, any vinyl that is found to be defective. Vinyl mainframes and vinyl sash frames are warranted not to pit, corrode or crack under normal use and service for a period or lifetime from date of vinyl siding New Jersey or New York installation. For these conditions, TRI-STATE WINDOWS will assume one hundred percent of the cost of material, replacement parts, and labor for a period of the lifetime from the date of installation.
The word “defect” as used in this part of the warranty is defined as “imperfections which impair the utility of the product.”
LIFETIME WARRANTY, INSULATED GLASS
We warrant that, under normal conditions, material obstruction of vision resulting from film formation or dust collection BETWEEN THE INTERIOR GLASS surfaces of the insulated unit will not occur for a period of the lifetime from the date of manufacture.
CHANGES IN TEMPERATURES AND HUMIDITY SUCH AS IN BATHROOMS AND KITCHENS MAY CAUSE TEMPORARY CONDITIONS OF CONDENSATION. TRI-STATE WINDOWS MAKES NO WARRANTIES REGARDING PRE-EXISTING CONDENSATION CONDITIONS OR ITS CONTROL.
If the customer sells their property, then within 15 days after settlement, TRI-STATE WINDOWS must be notified, in writing, so as the warranty becomes transferable. Any customer having an unpaid balance of money owing to Tri-State Window & Siding could cause their warranty to become null and void.
When there is a change in the ownership of the home, this bottom portion is to be detached and sent to TRI-STATE WINDOWS, with the name of the new homeowner to which the warranty is being transferred, the effective date and must include the signature of the original owner making the transfer. With his/her signature, the original owner relinquishes his/her rights under this warranty.
Glass Breakage Warranty
Our glass breakage warranty includes lifetime glass breakage coverage for the original purchase and/or property owner, and 20 years for the succeeding owner.
This manufacturer of Vinyl replacement windows makes available to the original purchaser or present property owner, the Lifetime Non-Prorated Transferable Limited Warranty, warranting against glass breakage for as long as the property owners (single-family owner-occupied) shall own or reside in the home in which the products were installed from the date of window installation.
If glass breakage does occur within the time period specified according to the provisions of the Warranty, then we agree to provide the replacement glass free of charge.
This Warranty is valid only so long as the replacement windows in NJ are installed on the premises of the original installation. Removal of the windows invalidates this Warranty. As described above, this Warranty is limited to the material cost of the glass and does not extend to labor costs. We will not be responsible for any costs incurred on the removal or re-installation of the glass furnished by the manufacturer under this Warranty.
The Claim Notice must state the date of installation, the date and number of this Certificate, and include Proof of Purchase (contract copy). This warranty shall be for the benefit of the original purchase and/or property owner and shall be transferable. Upon transferal, the Warranty will convert to a 20-year non-prorated limited warranty from the actual date of purchase. When the warranty is transferred the new property owner submits the original Warranty, along with a statement of his or her name and the address of the property by certified to TRI-STATE / ULTRASHIELD, at the corresponding address shown above within fifteen (15) days after becoming the succeeding property owner. It is limited to the manufacturer furnishing new glass, free of charge. In the event of such replacement, the remaining portion of the original warranty period shall continue in effect and cover the replaced glass.
This Warranty is valid in those states where permitted. Some states do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, so the above limitation may not apply to you. You should check the local state laws to determine this. This Warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights which vary from state to state.
THE WARRANTIES SET FORTH IN THE FOREGOING PROVISIONS OF THE CERTIFICATE ARE LIMITED TO THEIR PRECISE TERMS AND PROVIDE EXCLUSIVE REMEDIES EXPRESSLY IN LIEU OF ALL OTHER WARRANTIES. ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES IMPOSED BY LAW SUCH AS THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY OF FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE ARE LIMITED IN TIME TO THE EXPRESS DURATION OF THIS WARRANTY. TRI-STATE WINDOW IS NOT LIABLE TO ANYONE INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGE FOR BREACH OF ANY WRITTEN OR IMPLIED WARRANTY FOR ITS VINYL REPLACEMENT WINDOWS.TOP
