We will also work with your insurance company to understand your coverage, and in turn provide them the documentation they need in order to understand any damage or replacement needs for your roof.
Why is a Warranty Important?
The fact that your roof has a warranty isn’t the point. Yes, most roof materials come with a warranty. However, you want to make sure your purchase is adequately protected for many years. A five-year warranty isn’t sufficient. No one replaces their roof every five years. The average roof, barring any weather-related damage, lasts as long as 20 years. Your warranty should last twice as long.
Knowing what your warranty covers is just as important as how many years of coverage you receive. Great roof warranties provide the following coverages:
You need a roofing system that is built strong to take numerous lashings from Mother Nature and other harsh outdoor elements. If a roof begins to show early signs of wear and tear, this affects things such as your home’s energy efficiency and comfort. An excellent manufacture warranty goes into action in these situations and covers material defects due to premature wear and tear. As a GAF Factory Certified Installer/Contractor, you can be completely satisfied with the available warranties offered by GAF should you choose one of their products.
When purchasing shingles, not all warranties are equal. Dimensional shingles require a 50-year warranty for the best protection.
Insure Against Poor Workmanship
Roof needs repair every once and a while for minor things. Maybe you need shingles replaced because a few started to warp. Or, perhaps the flashing popped up and needs to be nailed back down. Although these are straightforward repairs, sometimes repairs go wrong and compromise the integrity of the roof. Sometimes the wrong people install the new roof and problems start showing up a couple years down the line. Superior warranties protect homeowners who have been the victims of poor workmanship or installation.
Our goal at Shelter Construction is for you to have a quality roof that protects you and your family from the elements. This is why we work with companies who offer warranties on their products. Each warranty is different, so you may want to consider that as you are making your roofing material selection.
