I bought my house last year. All windows were replaced in 2001 with a
35 transferable warranty. We are happy with them, however I found that
a few windows' stripper are coming loose. Called the company
(WeatherGard windows in Michigan) and they are asking a $125.00 fee to
transfer the warranty before any services are made. Nothing says about
that fee in the warranty papers and the company claims it is "Company
Policy". Is this about true? Any help is appreciated...
It sure sounds like a violation of contract to me. I suggest you will
need to contact a local attorney as the law covering this may be different
in different areas. There is a general national code (in the US anyway) but
local laws may vary.
Since your not the original owner/purchaser, all bets may be off. Would
have been part of the contract when I bought the home. Warranty is for the
original purchaser, they would have to be the ones that would have gotten it
Is it worth the $125 for the pieces you need? What will it cost for the
