An unbeatable warranty for your windows and doors
Armor employees are authorized to reject any product deemed defective at any stage of the production process. Not only is this occurrence astonishingly rare considering we produce tens of thousands of windows per year, the fact that we only require one full-time repair technician is also a remarkable feat in itself. It is our commitment to virtually ZERO defects along with our attention to detail and state-of-the-art manufacturing process that ensures such consistent quality.
Rather than performing a mere post-production inspection, Armor integrates quality control at every step of the process. From the labels to the paint finish, glass and fittings, everything is checked for quality at the seventy-five individual work stations. Products that pass all seventy-five verifications plus final inspections at the packaging and shipping phases receive our ZERO defects mark.
