When you’re installing a new roof on your home, roofing companies say that one of the things that you need to ensure is that you’ll receive warranty coverage. After all, should your roof sustain damage earlier than expected, a roofing warranty can help you get the roof repaired or replaced at no cost to your home. But what exactly is covered by a roofing warranty?
Of course, the materials like the shingles, underlayment and ventilation of your roofing system is covered by its warranty. According to experts, when it comes to the shingles, the strength of the warranty may vary depending on the grade of the shingle that was used. For instance, if you opt for basic strip shingles, you can expect them to have a weaker warranty. High-quality laminated dimensional shingles, meanwhile, can have a warranty that can last for the lifespan of the entire roof. Underlayment and vents, on the other hand, can have lifetime warranties attached to them.
The workmanship of your roofing system is also covered by warranty, albeit separate from the one covering material defects. This is because your roofing contractors are expected to stand behind their work. Should your roof sustain damage due to a flaw in the installation, they are obligated to repair or replace your roofing system at no cost to your own, if terms are met.
Who Benefits From a Roofing Warranty?
As the homeowner, you’re the main beneficiary of your roofing warranty. However, should you sell down the line, you can transfer the benefits you are enjoying from your warranty to the new owner of your home, if you have transferable coverage.
