Roofing Systems: Warranties

Warranties: When purchasing a new roof or having repairs done to your existing roof, there will be two warranties to consider. First, there will be a manufacturer’s warranty, which covers defects in manufacturing of the materials used. What materials, finishes, and length of coverage will vary depending on which of the roofing systems you choose. Shingle warranties range from 20 years to as long as you own your home. Much like when you buy a car and the dealer provides paperwork for your warranty, the contractor should provide a certificate for your records. Second, the contractor will provide you with a warranty covering his team’s craftsmanship. This typically covers issues related to installation. Make sure that the warranty specifies precisely what is covered and what will cause the warranty to be voided. Although there is no industry standard, most contractors offer one or two years of coverage.

Hire a Licensed, Insured Contractor: It’s very important to insist on working with a professional roofing contractor. Don’t be shy! Don’t hesitate to ask any contractor to provide proof of liability insurance and workers’ compensation. Working with a licensed, insured professional can mean the difference between getting a quality roof that lasts for 25 years or longer and being slapped with a lawsuit because a piece of your incorrectly-installed roof flew off and injured a neighbor.

In addition, a professional contractor will happily inspect your roof and provide an estimate for services. Get several bids and compare them before making a final decision. Remember also that it’s smart to maintain a healthy skepticism when it comes to the lowest bid. The old adage holds true: if it sounds too good to be true, then it probably is. Price is only one consideration among others such as professionalism, experience, and evidence of quality workmanship.

When you are ready to replace that roof, make sure that you have done your homework. Find a friendly, professional contractor who has your best interest in mind and don’t be afraid to ask questions. We’re here to help you understand your roofing system so you can make an informed decision.
