Roof replacement involves significant costs and one way to keep your investment protected is by securing a comprehensive warranty. When considering contractors and materials, you should take note of the warranty coverage that comes with them.
Here are things you should look for in a residential roofing warranty.
Reputable Manufacturer and Contractor
You can get the most comprehensive and reliable warranties from reputable manufacturers and roofing contractors. By working with trusted professionals, you can rest assured that your new roof stays protected against defects and poor installation. If the roofing system fails, which is unlikely, you can request a replacement from the manufacturer. Also, you want to hire a roofing contractor who you know will be there in case your roof started experiencing issues years after the initial installation.
Warranty Validity and Coverage
Industry leaders, such as GAF, offers extended and comprehensive warranties. Knowing that your warranty stays valid for many years, and your roof stays protected for a long time will give you peace of mind. Another thing to take note of when reviewing warranties is its coverage and inclusions. Ask your roofer about what your warranty covers and what it doesn’t.
What You Need to Do to Keep It Valid
Many warranties require you to keep your roof in good shape for the coverage to stay valid. If so, make sure your warranty indicates how frequently you need to do maintenance on your roofing system. Don’t forget to record repairs and inspections, as you can use them as proof that you complied with the warranty requirements.
