When it comes to roof repairs or replacement, the warranty that comes with the system is often the one thing homeowners don’t really think of as important. Warranties are crucial, though, as they protect your investment from things you have no control over. Lifetime Roofing, your local roofing company, discusses more.
Roof Risks and Warranty
The warranty on your roof protects you from accidents that could damage it. For example, if the new roof you have installed on your home has a fault or defect originating from the manufacturing stage, then you’ll have to pay out of your pocket to repair that. If you have a warranty though, you won’t pay a single dime.
Warranty and Coverage
Coverage pertains to the actual extent of the warranty and how far it will protect your new investment. Most warranties have “repairs only” coverage, which is essentially protection from manufacturer defects. Others lack labor warranty, which protects you from mistakes during installation.
As a GAF Master Elite™ residential roofing contractor, we offer some of the strongest roofing warranties in the industry through GAF. The Golden Pledge® Limited Warranty boasts 100% Material Coverage for a period of 50 years on architectural shingles and 20 years for 3-tab shingles. It also covers 100% workmanship for a period of 25 years, including tear-offs and disposals.
Peace of Mind
The roof is arguably one of the most expensive parts of the home to replace and repair. The last thing you want is to spend a hefty sum on a new roof that with a defect or fault from the manufacturing stage. Warranties are peace of mind that whatever happens, your new roof system is protected and insured.
