Check Your Roofing Warranty

If your roofing is looking weathered, you may need a replacement roof.

When choosing a contractor and materials for a roof replacement, there are many things that you need to consider. What fits most comfortably into your budget? What will last the longest? What will improve your home’s resale value the most? What roofing style is most personally appealing to you? But one thing that is easy to overlook is what is in your roof’s warranty. Failing to consider the value of a roofing warranty or understand what your roofing warranty covers and does not cover can be an expensive mistake. You don’t want to wind up with a roof that isn’t adequately covered by warranty, nor do you want to accidentally void your warranty. Take a look at some things that you should know about the warranty for your roof replacement.

Types of Roofing Warranties

There are two types of warranties that may apply when you replace your roof. The first of those is the manufacturer’s warranty, and it applies to the materials that your roof is made of. That means your tiles, your shingles, or your metal panels will be covered by the company that made them – they’re the ones who will pay for the replacement materials if they turn out to be defective or wear out before their time. However, it’s important to remember that, while the material might be covered, chances are that the labor needed to install them will not be.

A roofing warranty will help keep your roof looking new.

The other type of warranty you might encounter is the workmanship warranty, which is offered by the contractor that installs your roofing materials. You will definitely want to choose a contractor who offers this type of warranty. A workmanship warranty indicates that you’ve chosen a contractor who is willing to stand by their work. That means that not only will you be certain of having coverage if you need it, you’re also less likely to end up needing it.

Keeping Your Warranty Valid

If you don’t read the fine print on a roofing warranty, you could end up unwittingly invalidating your coverage. It’s important to make sure that you’re aware of any conditions placed on your warranty to continue its coverage. Take a look at some common conditions that you might be unaware of.

A manufacturer’s warranty may stipulate that you have to have your roof inspected on a regular basis to continue your warranty coverage. It’s easy to forgo, or even forget to have regular roof inspections when you aren’t seeing any obvious problems, but catching weaknesses before they turn into leaks or serious damage is crucial for the health of your roof.

A workmanship warranty may require that you have your regular inspections, as well as any upgrades or repair work, done by the original roofing company. It’s easy to understand why – your roofing company won’t want to be held responsible for sub-par work done by another contractor. However, this may also prevent you from making any DIY repairs to your roof.

I recently had the Gutter Helmet by Harry Helmet installed on my house. It not only looks amazing, but the guys arrived on time, were professional and efficiently got the job done. I am very satisfied with Gutter Helmet's attention to detail and fulfilling their work as promised. I will definitely tell my neighbors about the Gutter Helmet.
I have had Gutter Helmets for 20 years. In all that time I've never had a problem until recently a bird's nest found its way into one of my gutters. The installer who came to replace the product was the same installer from 20 years earlier. Now that's impressive. Everyone at Gutter Helmet inclusive of the office staff were professional and a pleasure to work with.
Gutter Helmet by Harry Helmet just replaced our roof and we could not be more satisfied. The crew showed up early, worked all day and stayed late, were professional and caring regarding the project and the surrounding impact it had on our property and home. They completed the roof quickly and it looks simply amazing!
VERY happy with our entire experience adding Gutter Helmet by Harry Helmet to our house. Installing this was a great value for us. The gutters are working perfectly in heavy downpours and with year-long leaves and debris coming down from our river birches. Terrific customer service and a first class product.
We needed our roof repaired due to wind damage. After several quotes, Gutter Helmet was the only company that went into our attic to look and see if more damage had occurred. If it wasn't for them taking the extra time to look at everything, we would have had rotting wood under our new roof. They were very professional and gave a fair quote.
We just had Gutter Helmet installed on our gutters and couldn't be happier. They provided us with useful information about Gutter Helmet and cleaned up everything, leaving no mess behind. We definitely recommend Gutter Helmet to anyone considering this product.
