Roofing Warranties Explained
More than likely, a new roof will represent the most substantial investment you’ll make in your home’s comfort and longevity. Accordingly, it is vital that you protect this investment with the right warranty. At Shifflett Roofing, we are proud to offer warranties that are backed by two of the most trusted providers in the roofing business: GAF and Owens Corning.
Because there are so many options available to you in choosing a warranty, determining which one best suits your needs can often seem confusing and overwhelming. Read on so that you can make an educated decision on the coverage you require.
Standard vs. Extended: Which One Do You Need?
While there are many different types of warranties available for your roof, they all ultimately fall into one of two categories: stand and extended manufacturer’s warranty.
Standard Manufacturer’s Warranty: This is the industry standard lifetime warranty that most shingles will carry. While this will vary greatly from one manufacturer to the other, it is a basic warranty to cover any costs associated with factory defects. For a set period of time, the warranty will replace any defective materials at no cost, with prorated costs from that point until you sell the home.
Extended Manufacturer’s Warranty: For those roofs installed by one of the manufacturer’s authorized roofing companies, the option would include extended warranty coverage for an additional cost. Besides using a trusted and certified installer, these warranties may require the installation of a complete roof system, including shingles, underlayment, vents and enhanced barriers against the elements. But what they offer is significant, including:
- Coverage for the entire roof system save for items like flashing, fasteners and wooden decking.
- An extended period of coverage for no-cost replacement of defective materials, up to 50 years.
The warranty options will vary between GAF and Owens Corning roofs, so discuss your options with your salesperson.
