Roof replacement is a major home improvement that involves significant cost. When choosing a contractor for your project, one of the major factors you need to consider is the roofing warranty. This ensures your purchase stays protected against potential roofing issues.
In today’s post, one of the most trusted roofing companies, Roofing by Curry, discusses things you should look for in a roofing warranty.
1. Type of Material Coverage
Material-only warranties only cover materials from the manufacturer or manufacturing defects. These don’t protect your roof from faulty installation.
Material and labor warranties also cover any problem that may arise due to the roofing’s installation. For the warranty to be applicable, it must be installed by a licensed contractor and then inspected by the manufacturer’s technical worker.
2. Type of Cost Coverage
On original cost coverage, only the manufacturer can repair problems up to the overall cost of your roof. In prorated warranties, the cost of coverage goes lower as the roof ages. Meanwhile, the no dollar limit warranty is non-prorated and doesn’t have a limit on the cost of the coverage.
3. Length and Exclusions of the Warranty
Ask manufacturers or roofing contractors about the exclusions of their warranties. Confirm if they cover wind or storm damage and problems due to ponding water or oil and grease. Knowing the length or your warranty can help you make sure your roof is protected for many years.
4. Warranty Requirements
There are warranties that require you to give the product proper maintenance. If this is a requirement, the warranty should state how often you need to conduct maintenance so the warranty stays applicable. Record all the repairs and inspections done on your roof to prove you have met the requirements.
