Protect your home with a roof warranty
All new roofs installed by Golden Group come with manufacturer-backed roofing warranties. Because your home is your biggest investment, and we want you to protect it.
All new roofs installed by Golden Group Roofing come with a registered 50-year warranty that is non-pro-rated and transferrable to your home’s next owner. What that means is peace of mind and a guarantee that your new roof investment will last for decades to come.
Workmanship and installation is a major component of new roofing. Without sufficient and guaranteed professional installation, even the best roofing systems can fail to perform. This is why homeowners need to choose a roofing company that offers both a material and workmanship roof warranty.
Ever thought about a roof warranty? When it comes time to replace a big-ticket item like the roof over your home, we know you’ll do your research. Most homeowners will check for good reviews, contractor license and insurance information, and use of quality materials. But don’t forget the roof warranty! It’s not enough to simply have a roof warranty – the coverage can be limited, and can cost you money down the road. You’ll need the right kind of roof warranty to protect your roof and your wallet for years to come. Here’s what to look for.
You may think you are covered for the life of a roof with a prorated warranty, but not necessarily. As the name suggests, the roof warranty coverage actually decreases over time as the roof ages.
What does this mean? While your roof warranty coverage may be high if you experience a problem in the first year, your reimbursement amount will reduce to smaller amounts significantly after 5 years. The closer you get to the end of the warranty, the more the actual coverage may dwindle down to only a nominal amount – even to just a few hundred dollars.
Another “gotcha” can be the product warranty. While your product may have failed and the replacement is covered under the warranty – that may just be for the product itself. Remember, the roofing products still need to be installed. This includes the labor, the removal of the old product, the permits, and the dumpster. While your product may be covered under warranty, you may still be stuck with a significant bill to get it replaced.
If you have an independent contractor that offers a roof labor warranty along with the product warranty, you may think you are covered. However, what happens if the independent contractor retires, sells their company, or goes out of business?
If they have offered the warranty to you but are no longer in business, the warranty may be worthless and you are still stuck footing the cost of the replacement. So what should you do?
For every roof installation, we purchase a registered GAF Golden Pledge warranty from the longstanding GAF manufacturer so that you are covered with full product and labor costs for up to 25 years, no matter what happens with our business.
In fact, we were the largest contractor in 2019 to offer this assurance to our neighbors in Worcester and Middlesex County. Because we are certified installers, we are able to purchase this GAF warranty on behalf of the homeowner for complete peace of mind for one of the largest home project investments people will make. This warranty covers “hand on roof” labor for 25 years and covers the GAF products for up to 50 years!
Not every roofer can offer this Golden Pledge Warranty. GAF has rigorous certification requirements, and Golden Group Roofing is continually trained and certified as a GAF Master Elite Roofing Contractor so that we can provide the highest quality installations for our customers.
If you are comparing roofing contractors, be sure to get the fine details about the roof warranty. Is it prorated or not? Does it cover the product only, or does it include the accessories, labor, permits, and disposal costs? Lastly, what happens to the roof warranty if the independent contractor retires or sells the business?

If there are any unclear or ambiguous provisions, don’t hesitate to seek clarification from the roofing company.
Limited warranty typically provides coverage for a specified period, ranging from 20 years to a lifetime, depending on the shingle type and series. The warranty duration is usually outlined in the warranty documentation provided by the manufacturer or roofing contractor. The warranty covers defects that occur as a result of manufacturing issues, such as problems with the materials or workmanship during the production process. This includes defects that may cause the shingles to fail prematurely or not perform as intended. It’s essential to review the warranty documentation provided by GAF to understand any exclusions or limitations. Common exclusions may include damage caused by improper installation, natural disasters, neglect, or lack of proper maintenance.
