    Anyone have anything about the warranty they offer that they wouldn't mind sharing? We offer a 2 year warranty on parts and labor for our systems. (I don't have anything in writing because I purchased the biz from my old boss and he just always told the customer they had a 2 year warranty. I'd rather give it to them typed.) Thanks for any help.

    You better up date the paperwork . Our estimate is also the contract , 4 copy that covers just about everything from warranty , binding arbitration, and limits of liability. property lines and customer burried utilities.

    Better you guarantee your work, rather than warranty it.

    What's the difference?




    From englishforums.com:

    From AskOxford.com


    • noun: (pl. warranties) 1 a written guarantee promising to repair or replace an article if necessary within a specified period.


    • noun: 1 a formal assurance that certain conditions will be fulfilled, especially that a product will be of a specified quality.

    'Warranty' has a time limit, e.g. for 12 months... and may be extendable to 24, 36 or 48 months for example.

    'Guarantee' is to a standard of quality and is not time bound... and is non-extendable.

    However, we are all familiar with 'Lifetime Guarantee' claims by manufacturers... which of course are non-extendable by their very definition...​
