Lifetime WORKMANSHIP Warranties
There a few contractors in the St. Louis area that offer a lifetime workmanship warranty. These types of warranties are a complete joke and an insult to the educated homeowner. As soon as the homeowner passes away the warranty is void regardless what the contractor or sales rep. verbally says to you. A real workmanship warranty will up front specifically specify an effective number of years. Always look for whether or not they are prorated or non-prorated and if they are fully transferable for the duration of the warranty. The term “Lifetime” is a sales and marketing term frequently used to give the homeowner a warm fuzzy feeling when they hear it. It is a marketing term only.
