Are Guarantees worth the paper they are written on?

Are guarantees worth the paper they are written on?

According to the dictionary a guarantee is as follows:  

guarantee    ɡar(ə)nˈtiː/  noun  a formal assurance (typically in writing) that certain conditions will be fulfilled, especially that a product will be repaired or replaced if not of a specified quality.

We know what it should mean, but how confident can we be that this will in fact be honoured if needed? How can we trust a guarantee? Is it worth the paper it’s written on? ... In essence it is only worth as much as the creditability of the company that offers it. At Room Outside, our guarantee is one you can trust as we have been established and growing now for 5 decades! Many companies and been and gone in that time, whilst we have gone from strength to strength, which speaks for itself.

We have an industry beating 30 year product guarantee and we undertake to guarantee the structural products against defective materials for a period of thirty years including the double glazed sealed units. Having built thousands of Glass Room Extensions, Orangeries and Conservatories throughout the South you will not be surprised to learn that our guarantee is independently recognised as one of the best in the industry and totally unique to Room Outside.

Furthermore, we undertake to offer an extended “umbrella” guarantee over the works carried out by the building contractor in the unlikely event of the builder going out of business.

How can we offer this? Because in building upon 5 decades of experience in the Industry our products are expertly designed and built to guarantee them for longer than any other Home Improvement Company. In the South East of England, wherever you may stand, you are never more than 10 miles away from a Room Outside Extension. Thus, as a local company we depend heavily on recommendation and happy, satisfied customers. We are so confident in the quality of our products that we can offer such a guarantee, and more importantly can deliver and honour it too.
