Have you checked your roofing warranty lately? If you haven’t recently experienced damage that needed roof repair, the answer may be not recently or maybe never. If this is the case, you may not know what your roofing warranty actually covers. You need not worry as Barnett Roofing is here to help you understand how your roofing warranty will protect your home.
Know Your Coverage
Different warranties from product manufacturers and roofing contractors offer different warranty coverage. A typical warranty covers repairs for leaks caused by defective materials and poor workmanship. Usually, your warranty does not cover extreme weather conditions, acts of terrorism and damage from ponding water or poor maintenance. If you are planning a repair soon and want to use your warranty, try to find a copy of it and look up the inclusions and exclusions. However, checking the warranty coverage should be part of the buying decision, and not at the end of the job.
Use Warranty Requirements in Your Favor
Before signing the contract with roofing contractors, make sure to get in touch with the manufacturer. The manufacturer’s warranties often include specific requirements about who will install the roof materials. Check if the contractor is authorized and licensed by the manufacturer. If the contractor is, then you can take advantage of the warranty with no problems. However, in the case that the contractor is not authorized by the manufacturer, find another contractor. At Barnett Roofing, we offer extensive GAF warranties for the roofing systems we install. We are a GAF Master Elite® Certified roofer to give you peace of mind when working with us.
Reduce Your Likelihood of Needing the Warranty
It is always true that prevention is better than cure. This is a good idea to hold when it comes to your home. Although your contractor is licensed and certified, it is still good to find other quality indicators. This is to make sure that you’re getting the right roofer for the job.
Ask the contractor how long they’ve been licensed by the manufacturer. Also, it’s great to look into their reviews and past jobs. Additionally, you may ask for references who can attest to the quality of their work. With Barnett Roofing’s high ratings from Better Business Bureau, Angie’s List, Facebook and Google, you can rest assured that you’ll receive nothing less than top-notch products and workmanship.
