WHEN COMPARING THE GUARANTEES OR WARRANTIES OF DIFFERENT COMPANIES, PLEASE CONSIDER THE FOLLOWING:

  • How long the company has been operating; how stable are they, will they be around to honour the warranty offered and deliver the required after-sales service.
  • What is the company’s track record; take a look at their portfolio and ask for customer reviews.
  • How comprehensive is the warranty; does it cover all components or are certain excluded or subject to shorter periods. Pay careful attention to any exclusions.
  • Check whether the warranty is being offered directly from the manufacturer i.e. AMERICAN shutters®, or is it a reseller warranty. If the warranty is by the reseller, will the correct shutter range be specified and will the shutters be installed correctly?
  • Does the warranty period provide adequate time to detect any defects in the material and or workmanship?
  • Does your installation warranty match your product warranty?
