Roof replacement can involve significant costs. One of the best ways to protect your investment is with comprehensive warranties. When getting a new roof, among the first things you should consider is the warranties your contractor is offering.
Here are things you should look for in a residential roofing warranty.
Reliable Contractor and Manufacturers
Leading manufacturers are more likely to offer strong and comprehensive warranties. By choosing products from industry leaders, you could avoid defects. If the new roof fails, and the cause is included in the warranty, you can ask for a replacement.
Moreover, it’s not enough to invest in high-quality products. You also want to hire a contractor who can install your new roof efficiently. With a reputable contractor, you can avoid poor workmanship and installation problems. Also, many manufacturers require that the roof is installed by a certified contractor to keep the warranty valid.
Length, Coverage and Limitations
Reliable manufacturers offer long-term warranties, so rest assured your roof will remain protected for many years. Another thing you should look into is the coverage of the warranty. Make sure that you understand what is and isn’t included in your warranty. Does your warranty only apply to the product or the labor?
Warranty Requirements and Transferability
Review your warranty, and check if there are requirements to keep the coverage valid. If there are requirements, make sure that you know what you need to do and how often you need to do it. It’s a good idea to document all the repairs and inspections your roof gets. Also, you need to know if your warranty is transferable in case you sell your home in the future.
