The Importance of a Roofing Warranty

A roof is one of the most important features of your home. It shields you and your family from the elements and ensures your comfort.

While a roof is meant to be durable, it isn’t meant to last forever. The average life expectancy of a roof is about 20 years. With that said, if you’re in need of a new roof, you want to ensure that you choose a reliable contractor with an outstanding reputation to get the job done.

While you’re shopping around for contractors, someone that offers a roofing warranty should be high on your priority list. If a contractor doesn’t offer a warranty, steer clear of his or her services!

Why is it important for a contractor to offer a roof warranty, and what does this type of warranty typically cover? Keep on reading to find out!

Why a Roof Warranty Is Important

Even if a roof is installed by an expert contractor who use the highest quality materials, the most advanced techniques, and has a wealth of experience, incidents can arise. For example, you may find that your newly installed roof springs a leak during a mild rainstorm, or that not so high winds blew off some of the shingles.

These types of issues can cost a pretty penny to repair on your own. That’s why a warrant on a new roof is so important! If any problems do arise, the contractor who installed the roof will make the necessary repairs, at no cost to you! A new roof isn’t cheap, and you shouldn’t have to pay for any problems that could occur – especially if those problems are due to faulty installation or products.

What Does a Roofing Warranty Cover?

A roofing warranty will differ from contractor to contractor; however, generally, there are some basics that these warranties will cover.

Typically, a roof warranty will cover the following:

  • The products, which covers any defects in the materials. For example, if your roof springs a leak and that leak is the result of defective shingles, a warranty should cover it.
  • The workmanship, which will cover any errors that were made by your contractor or his or her staff during the installation.

Even if a contractor offers a roofing warranty, don’t assume that it’s safe to proceed. Make sure you thoroughly read over the warranty before you sign on the dotted line and understand the rules and any exclusions that won’t be covered.
