If you have a “lifetime” warranty on your windows, roof orauto parts, you might want to dig out your paperwork and read the fine print.Apparently the meaning of “lifetime” – when pertaining to warranties – does notalways mean “lifetime.”
The Denver Post reported on a Denver homeowner who discovered this when sheincurred issues with new windows cracking and she sought to have the brokenwindows replaced.
