The standard roofing system comes with warranty coverage that adds an extra layer of protection to both you and your investment. That’s why you have to make sure it remains intact. This means avoiding some common mistakes that can nullify the warranty. Roofmasters Roofing & Sheet Metal, the expert in roofing and sheet metal fabrication, discusses some of them here.
- Not registering your new roof. The task of registering your new roof typically falls to your choice of roofing company. That said, you should still confirm whether they’ve done it on your behalf following the installation. By registering your new roofing system, you can maintain your warranty coverage–plus, you’ll have an accurate and detailed record should you have to make a claim against the warranty.
- Having an inexperienced, non-certified contractor work on your roofing. Most leading roof manufacturers provide coverage only when the roof is installed by a qualified professional. This way, everyone is sure the project is done to safety and quality specifications. If you’re having a new Malarkey® roofing system installed, for instance, you’ll want to turn to one of its certified roofing contractors, Roofmasters Roofing & Sheet Metal. We’ll complete the installation perfectly right the first time, eliminating the potential of costly mistakes and callbacks.
- Installing antennas and satellite dishes on the roof. Any unnecessary protrusions on your roofing system, like antennas and satellite dishes, can actually void your roof warranty. Here’s why–their installation creates holes and openings that make it easy for rainwater to infiltrate the system. Should your roof start having issues because of them the warranty will likely not cover their repairs.
- Overlooking proper ventilation. A roof needs sufficient ventilation to prevent heat and moisture from building up inside the attic. Otherwise, this can lead to premature aging of roofing materials and result in mold and rot. To keep your warranty intact, make sure to deal with any problems with your roof ventilation promptly.
