How Good Is Your Roof Warranty


Why should you even worry about the warranty on your new roof? Your contractor told you they were lifetime shingles right? Wrong!  A new roof in Rochester NY is a huge investment, usually thousand of dollars and one you hope to make only once or twice in your life. Should a problem occur with your new roof, knowing what your warranty covers could save you big money. While material defects are rare, it could cost more to remove and replace as the roof originally cost, so make sure you understand the warranty being presented to you.

There are two distinct types of coverage provided in a roofing warranty- one covers material defect and one covers workmanship errors. Two thirds of all roofing problems are caused by improper installation, not with materials. Make sure the roofing company you choose offers a strong personal workmanship warranty and has a reputation of standing behind his work. Ask for references and check third party reviews such as BBB or Angieslist.

When evaluating the strength of a shingle manufacturer’s warranty  consider:
–   Who do you file a claim with in the event of a problem
–   Is removal and disposal cost of defective material included
–   What  is the warranty for wind damage
–  Is there a warranty against moss and for how long
–  Will the shingle manufacturer cover the roofers workmanship

Make sure to choose a roofing specialist  who is factory trained and certified through one of America’s leading shingle manufacturers. Only a certified roofing contractor can provide a true lifetime warranty and upgrades to your new roof warranty. Choose a roofer with a long standing history of quality installations. Most roofing companies stay in business lees than ten years,  which is much less than the life of your new roof.  Where will you turn then, when you have a problem with their installation.
