Not All Warranties Are Created Equal: How To Find a Roof Warranty that Guarantees Protection

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.

Watch out for Pro-Rated Roof Warranties

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.

Shingle Warranties May Not Cover What You Think

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.

And Even Labor Warranties Are Still Vulnerable

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?

Golden Group Roofing Offers Registered GAF Warranties for 25 years

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!

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?
