Is your roof completely protected with your current roofing warranty? In an ideal roofing warranty, goods and workmanship are covered. You want to make sure that if your contractor or roofer screws up or the installation is not secure, the issue will be completely resolved by them. Warranty terms, however, can be different depending on the circumstances. Let’s help you secure a suitable roofing warranty for your home with the flat roof replacement experts of US Roofing.
Basics of a Good Warranty
Usually, roof warranties cover concerns with the material or the workmanship. In cases of premature material failure or improper installation of your roof, both the manufacturer and installer should be held liable. Each product and installation incident is different, warranties differ from one instance to another. You should be provided with complete product warranty information by your roofing contractor during the sales process. This should include any relevant warranty information for both the materials and the installation. You can also lookup material warranties on the manufacturer’s websites, which are often updated.
Failure to have your roof examined and cleaned regularly, as well as failing to have minor repairs completed, may void your warranty. Scheduled roof inspections are important, and an average warranty requires an authorized contractor to do at least one inspection a year.
Roof problems caused by manufacturing faults are covered by the manufacturer’s warranty for the life of the material. This frequently covers the materials and their performance for the duration of the warranty, whereas a contractor warranty normally protects the installer’s workmanship but does not cover the quality of the materials used in the installation. Notably, manufacturer warranties do not cover common causes of early roof collapse, such as improper installation, poor maintenance and weather damage. Not all warranties are valid in all areas, or for all contractors. Some manufacturers only warrant certain types of shingles and installation techniques.
