Are you thinking about buying a new mattress?
Then you might be wondering how long a mattress warranty lasts.
Mattress warranties last from 10 – 20 years in length in most cases, with shorter periods (often 5 years) and longer periods (often 25 years) being possible. Some mattress manufacturers even offer lifetime (‘forever’) warranties.
In the next section, I’ve detailed the exact warranty lengths for 47 of the most popular mattress manufacturers and retailers.
There’s a quick summary plus the link to the full terms if you need them.
You might find this list useful if you’re shopping for a specific mattress brand and you’d like to find out more about the warranty length, or if you’re trying to claim on the warranty for the existing mattress that you own and you don’t know if it’s expired or not.
Alternatively: if you’re looking for a high quality mattress with a lifetime warranty, then have a look at my list of the best mattresses with a lifetime warranty to buy now (includes discounts).
Mattress Warranty Lengths for 47 Top Brands
A mattress warranty covers you against defects and manufacturing flaws such as broken springs, visible sagging over a certain depth (usually more than 1 – 1.5″), faulty cover zippers, stitching problems, and potentially other issues mentioned in the terms of the warranty.
Issues not covered by the warranty typically include anything that can be attributed to normal ‘wear and tear’ such as dips and body impressions below the specified threshold, or damage caused through misuse or using an improper frame.
Critically, the mattress warranty does NOT cover comfort issues – unless this relates to a defect (such as sagging beyond the threshold) – although a ‘sleep trial’ will (which is separate to the warranty and should last at least 30 days to allow for the adjustment period to pass).
You should also avoid making the mistake of assuming that the length of a warranty correlates to the expected lifespan of the mattress, because most mattresses will need replacing BEFORE the 10 year mark due to normal wear and tear (which is NOT covered by the warranty).
Therefore, there’s little point in paying extra for an extended warranty beyond the 10 year point in my opinion.
Also, a longer warranty has diminished value if you’re required to contribute towards the costs of replacing the parts in the later years under ‘prorated’ terms.
Therefore, it’s likely going to be more beneficial for you to buy a mattress that will last a long time, and comes with a 10 year ‘non-prorated’ warranty where the costs of replacing the defective parts are covered entirely by the manufacturer/retailer.
However, you should always look for hidden costs that can affect both prorated and non-prorated mattress warranties, such as shipping fees and inspection costs.
To make a warranty claim, you should begin by contacting the manufacturer or retailer for specific guidance.
Before I reveal the length of the warranties for 47 of the most popular mattress brands, it’s helpful to understand the following terms so that you can read through a mattress warranty with more clarity and confidence:
- Full warranty – covers the repair or replacement of any qualifying defect . The terms of a full warranty may only be active for a limited amount of time out of the entire warranty period (such as the first 10 years of a lifetime warranty – with different terms being applicable to the remainder of the time).
- Limited warranty – a broad term that means the warranty is somehow ‘limited’; typically to certain parts of the product, specific types of defects, or other conditions specified by the manufacturer .
- Non-prorated coverage – you will not have to pay for costs associated with replacing defective parts or for a replacement mattress (although you may have to pay for associated fees such as covering the cost of shipping or for a home inspection of your mattress to confirm that a defect is present).
- Prorated coverage – you will have to contribute some money towards the repair/replacement of the defective parts or a new mattress; additional costs may also apply.
- Graded coverage – a warranty that’s split between non-prorated and prorated coverage. In the context of a 20 year warranty, it’s common to find that the first 10 years are non-prorated and the remaining 10 years are prorated; where 50% of costs need to be covered by the owner in year 11, with a further 5% increase each year thereafter until the warranty expires.
Although the information below is correct at the time of publishing to the best of my understanding, I’ve only summarised the key points and the exact details of each warranty may change over time. The terms of the warranty may vary depending on your location or other variables. Therefore, it’s strongly advised that you read the terms for the applicable warranty in full for yourself (links are provided) and simply use the list below as a guide.

But in either case, you should read through the terms of the warranty in full – links are usually found in the footer section of the manufacturer or retailer’s website.

The mattresses with the longest warranties are the Puffy Lux, Awara, Idle Plush, Level Sleep, Layla Hybrid, and the Nectar Memory Foam Mattress which all offer a lifetime warranty.
