Getting a brand-new roofing system or replacing an old one is an expensive undertaking. It’s one of the biggest investments you make, and, when something costs as much as a new roof, you would naturally want to keep it protected from anything that might cause problems. Luckily for new roofs, they are all usually covered by warranties.
Warranty coverage should be one of the things you should examine when deciding what kind of roof you want to get. Your roofing company can help you understand the gist of the terms and conditions, but there are a few features you should always look for in the terms.
A Name You Can Trust
Roofing warranties can either be for the product itself or the labor. These are two separate coverages and are typically backed by separate companies. In either case, you should look for a name you know has been around for years in the industry and has a long history of customer service and satisfaction. This holds true for roofing companies who cover the labor part of the warranty as this can save you a lot of headaches in case of any installation issues.
Coverage and Limitations
This is not a feature per se, but it’s just as important to familiarize yourself with the basics of your coverage. Know which problems can be claimed and which ones cannot be. Take special note of any conditions like proper maintenance and usage of system components. Don’t hesitate to ask your roofer any questions you might have about your warranty coverage.
Lastly, you want a roofing warranty that is transferable just to keep all avenues open. A roof with an active warranty can help increase the value of your home.
