These are a few examples of how Window Wise™ can protect the homeowner and best of all there is no charge to the homeowner for this insurance. However, it is only available through a Certified Window Wise™ Dealer. For more information please visit the Window Wise™ website: http://www.windowwise.com
Important: In order to register and qualify your new windows/doors with the Window Wise™ program, the installation must be performed by a fully certified Window Wise™ dealer. Be wary of window/door installation companies that claim to be Window Wise™ or have the Window Wise™ logo on their business card. There are many companies selling certified Window Wise™ windows/doors but do not have certified installers and/or their company is not certified. Ask for proof of a copy of the Window Wise™ Dealer certificate as well as copies of their installers Window Wise™ Certified Installer certificates. Check the Window Wise™ website for a listing of fully Certified dealers or call them Toll Free at 1-800-813-9616 to verify if the windows/doors you are purchasing will be guaranteed for 5 years by Window Wise™.
NOTE: Not every dealer or contractor displaying a Window Wise logo actually have Window Wise™ Certified Installers, actually most ONLY carry a Window Wise™ approved product or window manufactured by someone else and display the manufacturers logo, but are not themselves Window Wise™ certified. Insure that ONLY Window Wise™ Certified Installers work on your renovation project, and don't be fooled just because someone displays a Window Wise™ logo!
