Storm damage roof repair or a full-on roof replacement due to age can cost a significant amount of money. Thankfully, when things go wrong, your roof is most likely covered by some kind of warranty. There are manufacturer warranties that cover materials, and there are also workmanship warranties. Sometimes these overlap and sometimes they don’t. For this reason, things can get quite confusing, and as a homeowner it’s important to understand what kind of coverage you’re getting before handing over that check to your roofer.
Here’s what you should look for when it comes to a roof warranty:
Most roof warranties provide coverage for defective materials and workmanship. This means that if your roofing materials fail prematurely or your roof was installed incorrectly, the manufacturer and installer will cover the cost of replacing your roof.
Whether you have custom metal roofing or traditional asphalt shingles, a good warranty should guarantee that the materials will last a specific number of years. That said, warranties vary from case to case, and no two homes are alike, so it’s important that you speak to your trusted roofing service provider and ask them to provide all the warranty information.
Neglect Can Void a Warranty
It’s also important to understand that a warranty can be voided if certain conditions are not met. For instance, a manufacturer may require that you maintain a preventive maintenance schedule to maximize the lifespan of your roof, and if your roofing materials fail prematurely due to neglect, then you may have to shell out your own money for a replacement.
Be sure to read all the fine print and do your own research to arm yourself with all the relevant information with regards to your warranty.
