Your roofing warranty adds an extra layer of protection to your investment. That’s why it’s important to understand the full extent of its coverage. Doing so allows you to maximize the warranty’s benefits and avoid mistakes that can void it.
In this article, Roofmasters Roofing and Sheet Metal Company share some of the steps you can take to make sure you’re getting the most out of your roofing warranty.
Understand the Coverage
There are coverages and exclusions in your roofing warranty that you need to check before signing a contract. Typically, a roofing warranty covers leak repairs and damage caused by defective materials or poor workmanship. On the other hand, it excludes damage from severe weather, acts of terrorism and negligence.
Check Manufacturer Requirements
Usually, roofing manufacturers require roofing contractors to adhere to their installation specifications and the latest industry standards. Check if your roofers are certified or qualified to install your roofing system so you can avoid installation errors that will void your warranty.
Hire the Right Contractor
Working with a reputable company ensures you’re getting the right warranty for your roofing system. Remember that a manufacturer warranty is different from a labor warranty. Manufacturer warranties cover the roofing system itself. Meanwhile, labor or installation warranties are offered by contractors as a guarantee for their workmanship. Generally, a skilled and seasoned roofing contractor has the confidence to stand behind their work and offer a decent coverage period for their workmanship warranties.
