Victory Peace of Mind Parts Warranty
What we'll do for you under our 'Peace of Mind' Parts Warranty
How long do Blinds last and how offer should I replace my blinds? The most common questions asked when purchasing window furnishings. At Victory, our Peace of Mind Parts Warranty is here to give you exactly that, Peace of Mind, when it comes to your window furnishings.
If you're the original purchaser of a window covering and a significant structural or cosmetic defect appears in your Victory product within five years of purchase, we'll replace the defective part at our cost:
